I read It when it was released 30 years ago. Bought new book recently. The book doesn't seem exactly the same. It's larger, and there are parts I don't remember. I realize my memory is probably faulty from 30 years ago, but has "It" been revised? I remember it was done to "The Stand". I'm enjoying the book again, but would like to know. Thank you

No, it wasn't changed for the recent release.

When you say "larger" do you mean in physical size or in length? There are differences in physical size of books whether they are hardcover, trade paperback, mass market, etc. The book you read 30 years ago is most definitely different in physical size than what you would have read today.

Mandela Effect. Just kidding, but I have always had a memory of my first reading where Tom Rogan tracks Beverly down to Derry and says the police are looking for the Losers because she threatened to kill him and he's gonna make them all pay. Then he happens upon Audra and delivers her to Pennywise and is quickly disposed of. I'm glad this didn't happen but I don't know why this memory persists.
