Okay, the end part of The Ritual of Chud chapter in ”IT” was weird. It’s got to have been weird in the mid eighties as well, right?

I’m currently listening to Stephen King’s It and I think King har become my favorite author. Right now I’m in a passage where Bill Denbrough clearly voices Kings opinions on authors that are probably more respected in literary circles than he is, that is more focused on the sociocultural, -historical, -etc. of their stories than the stories themselves and I love it. Similarly the part in The Wastelands where Jake writes stream of consciousness bordering on gibberish and gets praise by his teacher feels like King grinding an axe.
