Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was the only story that gave me a nightmare after I'd finished reading it. It's what you can't see in The Mist that lingers in your mind.

A truly scary tale.

Even if you're not into Stephen King, I recommend this short story as a worthy sampler.

While The Mist is a quick read(novella), I found the plot along with the cast of characters to be extremely well developed. My only complaint is that King never developed this into a full length novel since I feel it would have been a great read.

This was a short but sweet read. I could tell it was one of his earlier works by the style and plot. The plot itself is predictable and sometimes random in regards to the overall construct of the storyline. But the heart of this book really is getting inside the shoes of the protagonist and the atmosphere of the staging area of the book. I found it enjoyable slipping into the worlld.

But I did find the overall story lacking polish, as certain dialogue and characters are very bland and cliche. In the end it was a "good" read, however far from spectacular and certainly not scary. But for anyone wanting to sample some of King's works, this is a decent book to dip your feet into the water with.

STORY: As one editorial review summarized: "A diverse group of people trapped in a supermarket must battle not only the hellish creatures of the mist, but also each other in a desperate attempt to survive."
MY FEEDBACK:
1) Production Quality - Here is where the audiotape shined and failed. Sound Effects were clear, loud and you could feel the room rumble when the earthquake hits = strong point. Voices kept fading into the background or were too low to hear what is being said = weak point. If this part wasn't so bad I would have given this production another star but even with the volume set at max it was hard to hear key scenes of dialogue.
2) Acting - actors were great! Nuff said.
3) Story - It was good. Because of the quality of the sound and voices I'm not sure how the story ends since it was so hard to hear some of these final key moments. But I liked the overall concept.
OVERALL: I hear the CD version is pretty good so I'd opt for that if you can and avoid the audiotape version. This production all fits on one tape, yet it is 80 minutes long. Nice change from someone actually reading a story.

it is a binaural recording. basically it is a recording technique that was meant specifically to be listened to with headphones. when played through a home or car system the stereo image completely collapses and sounds terrible. listen to it through a set of phones and I think you'll have a dramatically different opinion of the sound quality.

I like to listen to audio books and follow along in the book at the same time. I couldn't do that with this CD. The story is good just the same, but it wasn't like "normal" audio books. It didn't "read" the story. To me it was like hearing a movie that I couldn't see. Not a terrible thing, but it wasn't what I thought.

"The Mist" is easily my favorite of the King short stories. i've actually been reading it to a good friend of mine over the last few months and she is quite intrigued.
As for this presentation, the sound is spectacular and very frightening. As other reviewers have stated, the need for giving a detailed description of the nemeses in the story is a bit overdrawn, but I can deal with that. My complaints are with the musical score. I found it exceptionally distracting and would prefer to purchase a version of this with the musical score entirely removed.
All in all, it's a very unsettling listen, well worth it. Without the score I would have given it five stars.

The piece de resistance of Stephen King's anthology 'Skeleton Crew' was a lengthy (approx 140 pages) novella entitled 'The Mist', an unsettling tale in which a mysterious impenetrable fog suddenly blankets a small New England town one summer morning after a fierce storm. Within the mist, unseen but ever present, are a variety of monstrous other-worldy creatures who make short work of anyone who ventures outside into it. To this day it remains my favourite of his shorter peices of fiction, managing to be both schlocky (all the monsters seem to be straight out of various B-movies: tentacles, giant insects, prehistoric birds etc) and deceptively chilling. Maybe it's the fact that we never discover exactly what has caused this mist, other than some speculation about secretive military experiments, whether it is localised or global, whether anyone else in the world is still alive and whether or not the main characters ever find any of this out. Ultimatly though, as in almost all King's writing, it's not so much the supernatural forces or the monsters that frighten the reader as much as what the human characters are capable of doing to one another. Here in the space of a couple of days the local religious nut turns from a harmless loon into an apocalyptic prophet of the end times, and the previously normal townspeople begin to get ideas about blood sacrifice as an appeasement to the creatures outside. The thought that civilisation could break down so quickly and in such an horrific fashion confirms the fact that the atrocities we might inflict on ourselves are far and away the more unsettling.Read more ›
