1) What do you think about Stephen King's book "IT"? The movie changed a lot of things, though.
2) Do you think IT influenced what happened in Derry, Maine in other books that Stephen set in that town?
1) I personally love IT (Even though The Stand is one of my favorites from him.) and I think it was interesting that IT had been around for so long. What happened after they defeated IT in the fifties with Beverly and the boys was a little disturbing, though.
2) I think IT did influence a lot of things that happened in Derry, Maine. Too many weird things happened in that town, and in Maine to begin with. Maybe IT influences Maine altogether.
