    i read It when i was in fifth grade, so would've been 9 or 10 depending on which part of the school year we're talking about (i certainly don't remember). even back then i was bringing books to class to read in spare time. my teacher commented on my choice of reading material (in a sort of fascinated way for what i was reading, not disapproving). no idea whatsoever how i got my hands on the book, but i imagine my mom had something to do with it. she may have owned a copy, back then she read a lot of different horror authors. she was into john saul and dean koontz too.

    Visited my Dad in Dublin for a few weeks one Summer when I was about 14 and he had a lot of paperbacks as he was an avid reader. I took Firestarter from the shelf and asked if I could read it and he said, 'of course you can', and that was my introduction to Stephen King. I was hooked from then on.
