Have trouble focusing to read though, so I love Jake's idea of audiobooks. Where did you get your version, Jake? It sounds good!
I'm considering listening too. I will read the book, but I'm a fast reader so I'm thinking about looking for the audio edition Jake is championing, for after the hard copy.

Definitely find it, its pretty intense. I love getting to still imagine every scene my way, but having an excellent actor voicing it to me. I borrowed my copy from my local library. Thats where I would suggest looking.

My oldest son is a huge reader, hes 10 going on 11 next month. He reads into college level, he just finished The Gunslinger and is starting the second book in the Dark Tower series. He recently discovered audiobooks (thanks to me) but he doesnt just listen to them. He puts his headphones on and reads along while they are reading it. Its expanding the shit out of his vocabulary because he hears the words pronounced appropriately while he is reading them.

Haven't read it again, but it's still the best book i've ever read and it deserves a movie that's at least 3 hours long.

Well, the first half of the new on is 2 hours and 15 minutes. If the second half is the same, your getting a 4 1/2 hour movie. Cant beat that.

I found the audiobook on YouTube! 8)
Guess I'll get to have the book experience before the movie comes out after all.

After starting:
...Jesus this thing has as many false starts as The Lord of the Rings does endings.

Older version, different narrator. But Im sure it will still be awesome. It gets a little crazy because in movie form its kids, then adults. In the book it flips back and forth through the whole thing. Follow closely. Lol.

Splitting it into two films is a perfect approach. The book is an absolute classic of Horror lit AND it's 7,000 pages long. Right, not that long but you guys know what I mean. There is simply too much meat in the book for a two hour film to respectfully cover.

I got in chapter 1, and I'm confused how Gorgie died. It sounded like he lost an arm and bled to death, but it was pretty quick if that's the case.

Yeah, IT likes people to know. IT ripped his arm off and left him to die. IT doesn't actually feed on people really. You'll find out more. In the movie he was yanked into the sewer and gone. I think this is more brutal, also I saw it in my mind as he wouldn't really fit into the sewer so IT just yanked until IT got some.

I just finished IT again today. Im sad faced that its over.

I wasn't aware it was going to be a two parts movie. Great.
