13. IT is one of my least favorite King books.

I am a huge Stephen King fan, but I can't imagine how the OP read it in 48 hours as it was over 1000 pages - it felt to me like a mammoth catch-all clearing house for every stray story fragment King had floating around and it took me forever to read (and I can inhale a novel when it grabs me). Absolute same for TOMMYKNOCKERS which started with the most intriguing premise. But I know a lot of people love the King mega-novels.

I'm a bigger fan of the novels when King limits himself somehow to rein in the focus, like in THE SHINING or GERALD'S GAME or DOLORES CLAIBORNE. I tried to read the reissued and uncut THE STAND and had the same issue and gave up going "I see why this was edited down..."

This movie appears like it might be stripped down to focus on the "clown" storyline, which will probably make a compact and tense popcorn flick.
