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."
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.

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 ›

My previous experience with audiobooks hasn't been all that great, so I decided to try something shorter and by an author I'd also read. "The Mist" was my choice, and it was an unfortunate choice.

I have to wonder whether or not there was much corporate sponsorship in the making of this audiobook. For one, at the sight of a mutated insect-monster set aflame trying to put itself out by smashing into the sauces aisle of a supermarket the reaction is not shock or dismay. It's literally a character moaning that there's "Ragu and Prego everywhere!" Uh, what? Ruffles, Bud Light, many products get quite a bit of audio-time.

The story itself was likely a good one: after a quick storm, people find themselves trapped inside a grocery store, surrounded by a thick mist, and monstrous horrors attack and kill anyone who steps out into the horrible thick fog. But alas, the voices chosen for the characters were very poor -especially the apparently sinous-infected young boy, and the reactions of the voice-overs to the attacks are just as bad -"Oh my god, get it off me!" never sounded so flat as on this tape.

I'm not done with trying audiobooks quite yet, but I'm beginning to think it's just a genre not for me. At the very least, I suggest that if you, too, are flirting with the audiobook, try something by Stuart MacLean, not Stephen King. Certainly not, "The Mist."

I am a big Stephen King fan, and have really enjoyed other audiobooks of his. So, I was excited when I saw a cassette of "The Mist," a novella which I thought was excellent. Well, I was doomed to be disappointed by this tape. It starts out by informing the listener that it was recorded in 3-D sound. Indeed, it does sound a little more textured than the usual audiobook. But I think it was a big mistake to read it as a play. I think the listener would have gotten a lot more out of it if it was read straight from the book. You see, in the process of rewriting it for the audio book, they changed the integrity of the story. In the cassette, David Drayton and his wife yell at each other like shrews, and their son sounds like somebody is pinching his nose shut while he talks. Another irritant: all the pitches for name brand foods. "Here, have some Post Toasties!" "How 'bout some Ruffles Potato Chips." I don't know if this was intentional or not, but it certainly wasn't in the book, and it was enough to make me want to gag. One more thing; true, the 3-D sound is neat, but it is not good to listen to while you're driving. Nobody in the car will be satisfied with how well they can hear. All in all, avoid this audiobook. Reading the story will let you absorb the atmosphere much, much better.
