    *Warning *Spoilers ahead*


    I love all the back stories of Derry. I also love the smoke hole scene.
    These are two of many, many more. So what about everyone else?

    I really liked the 'far back' back stories, the black spot and the outlaws massacre. I also liked the damn building and other club house scenes because they got to be just kids doing kids stuff, may sound sad, but I felt genuine happiness for them in those moments.

    There's so many! It's a long story! I like when Mike is in the truck w/his old man and Will tells him to hold on, that they're going to wind this...what was the word?...baby? sucker?...he says something like hold on Mikey we gone wind this baby up we gone make some birds run for cover! Then they take off the back wheels spitting dirt and clay and they're both jouncing up and down on the sofa-seat in side the open cab and laughing like fools. They harvest rocks. The truck gets stuck a time or two.

    One of my fav's, and like all you guys I have many, is Georgie's conversation with Pennywise having just lost his boat;
    “Want your boat, Georgie?' Pennywise asked. 'I only repeat myself because you really do not seem that eager.' He held it up, smiling. He was wearing a baggy silk suit with great big orange buttons. A bright tie, electric-blue, flopped down his front, and on his hands were big white gloves, like the kind Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck always wore.

    Yes, sure,' George said, looking into the storm drain.


    And a balloon? I've got red and green and yellow and blue...'

    Do they float?'

    Float?' The clown’s grin widened. 'Oh yes, indeed they do. They float! And there’s cotton candy...'

    George reached.

    The clown seized his arm.

    Portrayed brilliantly by Tim Curry in the movie, wonderful.:horror:

    Love the Black Spot story and the Bradley Gang scene. This book should have just been called "Derry" :)

    For some reason, I've always loved the Apocalyptic Rock Fight part. The Losers gaining their final member, standing up to Butch, the pure imagery of the chapter. <3

    My favorite line from any SK work:
    “Drive away and try to keep smiling. Get a little rock and roll on the radio and go toward life with all the courage you can find and all the belief you can muster. Be true, be brave, stand. All the rest is darkness.”

    As far as parts of the novel, there are so many it is hard to list them all, but two really stand out. Being overweight as a child and defeating it as an adult, I have always related to Ben's character. I believe that is a part of the widespead appeal of this book . . . so many of us can identify with at least one of the Losers in our own childhoods.

    The scene that tends to jump out at me is when Henry gets a ride from his old friends in a certain vehicle we know all too well.

    The scene I could read over and over (and HAVE read over and over) is the last day of school when Ben walks to the library and writes the haiku. Something about the description of his wandering mind and puppy love just warms me to my toes.

    As for my favorite scary scene, the blood from the sink and the demise of Patrick Hockstetter get me every time.

    There are too many lol but i'll name a few.

    When Mike gets in a situation with the giant bird that was crazy.
    The smoke hole part when they go back in time to see IT'S arrival.
    The wild rock fight between The losers and Henry Bowers & friends
    The whole Bradley gang scene/shootout was awesome
    When the final battles with The losers and IT underneath the town
