I just finished IT yesterday. I had a few issues with it, and wanted to get feedback on them.
When I was about half way through in my mind I was thinking this is better than the Stand, better than UTD, could be SK's best ever. But when I finished it, I just could not get past these two things, that impacted it for me (albeit I did still fully enjoy the book and the journey) :
1) The sex between the kids at the end : Flat out it was weird, out of place, was confusing, and disturbing. I just didn't get it.
2) There didn't seem to be closure with the young Henry. He chased them down into the Barrens, and then all of sudden it was like a sudden change that the totally forgot about him, and focused entirely on IT (until one brief mention at the very end). I felt cheated. I felt cheated with the entire group - Henry, Vic, Patrick, Belch. It just felt to me like SK phoned in the ending.
Look forward to hearing peoples' thoughts.
