    You know I Since the book's publication King's story has been adapted several times for TV and film. His body is later discovered and brought back to the Denbrough's house. After her husband is killed by It, and after a brief reunion with Bill, Bev subsequently departs Derry with Ben, realizing it was Ben whom she subconsciously loved all along. Among Henry's gang, Vic is most likely the smartest and most intelligent member and is the only one who truly realizes Henry's insanity, and becomes increasingly reluctant to follow him. They reach It's lair and find It has taken the form of a giant spider.

    There's no time to wait for inspiration. Bill, Ben, Beverly, Richie, and Eddie learn that Mike is near death and realize they are being forced into another confrontation with It. Thomas, Ontario, Canada - May Horn Book Before the first chapter begins, we already know something about narrator Anna Wang: she always has her head stuck in a book. It is implied that It kills him later that summer as the Losers recall that all of Henry's friends were killed by It.

    Mike concludes that Derry is finally dying. Many famous works of literature started out as short stories that authors used as process work. Landon invites Jamie to eat Christmas dinner at his family's historic and beautiful mansion; afterward, he asks Jamie whether he can begin seeing her regularly. King ends his mammoth novel with one final thought: that the act of Remembering as a Dreamer and the act of Creating as a Storyteller are the same, because although Bill may never fully remember the story behind his dreams, he will write the truth in his fiction. And I escaped into the world of books. Ingenious, darkly comedic.

But the cumulative power of her narrative—and the sharp turn she takes in its last 30 pages—becomes nothing less than a revelation: sad, funny, astonishing, and unforgettable.
