    Well, IT is my favorite King novel (favorite book of all time really), so I welcomed a return to Derry with a couple of the Losers, even if it was just a few pages.

    ...I thought it was a nice "gift" to the CR's amongst us...didn't really influence the story in any way, but felt good to "see" them again...and after all, not EVERYTHING he writes has to be on-topic as it relates to the overall story...these asides are welcome...and in that series of pages-a welcome lifting of the darkness for a moment or two...

    I am the same. I also found it to be such a relief that

    Richie and Bev are finally just being normal kids, doing normal kid stuff. I also found it really nice that they were able to place Jake as a good guy and not a threat, like thier experience with IT has made them wiser and good judges of character
    . The Derry section was a perfect mini update IMO. The fact that it was set

    a short time after IT's 1st demise
    didn't make me think the Derry folk would be as bad, but I also had a feeling that bad things would happen - Derry anytime is seemingly an afflicted place.

    This is silly but I sorta got miffed at Steve for being so harsh to Derry. It is my favorite fictional place in the whole wide world.

    Someone mentioned that Ralph Roberts is in 11/22/63,my next task is to see if I can find it
    It may have been Bag of Bones where Ralph makes an appearance. Relying on my faulty memory.

    I tend to read each story or series as contained and don't worry about connections (blatant or guessed). To tell the truth and shame the devil, the connections don't matter at all because each of those stories is complete. They have a beginning, a middle, and an end. That is as it should be. I loved 11/22/63 for many reasons, not the least of which was a nice new take on time travel. The return to Derry was fine by me. All those people screaming for more Pennywise (one name among many) got a bone thrown to them. You got to see the monster again without undoing everything earned by the heroes of It.

    the tie in to Derry and IT was one of the best parts of this book for me. loved the way they reference Patrick Hockstetter (sp?) and also Bev saying something like "the clown didnt kill that one". LOVED that part.
