    David and his son Billy go out to get grocery store to get supplies after a bad storm has hit town Before leaving David had noticed a thick mist forming and started to feel an apprehension building Figuring it was nothing David and Billy went for supplies but end up seuestered inside the grocery store after someone comes in screaming about the things in the mist The town is near a military base where rumor has it nuclear testing is being conducted and everyone in the store becomes unsure about how to proceed Wondering about whether or not someone is coming to save them decisions have to be made about the best course of action I recently read The Thing and hated it but this one went over much better The suspense was built up much better here and I got pretty on edge waiting to see if they would all make it I haven't seen any of the TV or movie adaptions of this though so I came in this without any idea about the plot line I also did like how it left off but someone told me the movie ending is a lot better I just sometimes feel like Stephen King seems to really take his time when writing and maybe he should try to cut down on the details not related to the scary shit happening which is what I want to read about you know

    My 100th read book this year And also a damn good one King surely knows how to write characters you want to strangle and then feel happy about it Even though I really liked the book I need to say one thing Since I've seen the movie before I read the book I gotta say that even though ending of the book was interesting ending of the movie was done so much better and it literally left me speechlessBut never mind that I couldn't give this book any less than 5 stars because I honestly think that it deserves every single star From page 1 it grabbed my attention and it didn't let go 'till I turned the last page King is the king ha ha at writing stories that you can't stop reading and with every book of his that I read I gain respect for the man

    A very unusual freak storm hits a small Maine town causing a lot of damage In its aftermath many of the townsfolk head to the local grocery store to stock up on supplies and food While there a thick enveloping heavy mist like no one has ever seen settles around the store Soon the people discover that something is out there in the mist But what exactly could it be?This was an extremely entertaining horror story I really enjoyed the vivid cast of characters and the different ways they reacted to their situation while stranded in the storenerves wearing thin arguments choosing sides The story itself was very atmospheric with such a sense of foreboding and I loved the grocery store setting And what was out there in the mist was pretty wild Creepy scary and a lot of fun It held my attention throughout

    I don't know I liked the movie than the book on this one Although when I had the book on tape a million years ago it about scared me to death with all of the sound effects I think I would like to get a narrated version of it again It's been a really long time since I saw the movie but I just remember that it freaked me clean out and the book not so much I'm not sure if it was because the things in the mist were surreal seeing them than imagining them I don't know who cares I still love Mr King's books Well most of them I also remember after this I never wanted to go out in the fog again

    45 starsJust another example of King's mesmerizing storytelling ability Got me gripped from page 1 until the final sentence Although being the size of a novella and originally published as a short story this book has enough to spooke you with all the creeps and chillsThe way King builds up the atmosphere for this is brilliant The book wastes no time setting itself up and diving into the story and also doesn’t spend too much time exploring the whys and the whats it just gets into it all which is fantasticWhile The Mist is terrifying with its creatures seeking human flesh in the grayness its real fear comes from the gray of human nature It revolves around how people react to the terror and each other That’s the real horror hereMy only complain would be that there isn't much explanation about why the mist has suddenly appeared Also there is a totally unnecessary sex scene in the book A lot of people don't like the ending but I uite like itOverall The Mist is a pretty damn good short uick read if you are interested and has monster horror to keep you going It knows what it is and it goes for it no mincing about It is well written and barrels along definitely worth the read

    I used to fantasize about a zombie apocalypse after watching The Walking Dead I used to fantasize about winning the Hunger Games after watching the moviesreading the books I used to fantasize about alien invasions after watching alien moviesNow I’m glad none of that happened because I wouldn’t have survived even an hour Thanks but no thanksThough I can’t deny the novel has a certain appeal What would I do? So I fantasized again I imagined myself being there alone or with certain people The supermarket had or had not supplies of certain stuff In every scenario I knew how to fire a gun because doh why would I daydream myself in an apocalyptic scenario not knowing how to do fire a gun?

    35 StarsOne of my friend's Dad used to throw a number of inspirational uotes all around to provide us with insight and direction to life and stuff One of his favorites was Don't be afraid to go into the mist be excited because you don't know where you will end upClearly he never had a chance to read The Mist ❝ In the dream I could hear the rending crack and splinter of breaking trees as God stamped the woods into the shape of His footsteps He was circling the lake coming toward the Bridgton side toward us and all the houses and cottages and summer places were bursting into purple white flame like lightning and soon the smoke covered everything The smoke covered everything like a mist❞ This dream belongs to David our narrator family man who finds himself living in his own dreadful nightmare It all began after a destructive storm and when a thick unnatural mist started rolling in David and his young son Billy were in a crowded supermarket when the mist enveloped the building effectively creating a prison for the people inside the market guarded by things no man has ever seen How bad is it? Let's just say stepping out to the mist is euivalent to signing your own death sentence The Mist is an interesting novella with a very creepy premise King plays with the horror of the unknown in the opening act and gradually raises the curtain to reveal the main attraction throughout the narration It's a classic horror structure and King does it uite wellUnfortunately I had watched the 2007 movie adaptation of the story many times while I was in uni It was one of gang's favorite movie and we always had conversations which went like Dude remember The Mist's ending? That was crazy For me the movie is the reason I'm rating this lower While The Mist has a Hitchcock style ending Not my words the movie had a definite one and in this case I'll take the definite oneYet The Mist is the glorious source material and it is really well written One another thing King nails here is the mob mentality and the way people act under the pressure of horrors If you're looking for a short SK story this is the one to pickAfterthoughtFor some reason I kept on thinking a scenario where The Mist finds its way to Derry during the reign of IT Imagine you're running and BOOM IT comes out of the damn smokeThat would be a killer tale

    I have always found that Stephen King can pull a reader in with his writing no matter the length I needed something to fill my time and turned to this novella which showcases some of the greatness I have come to expect from the author David Drayton and his family live in rural Maine watching as a storm rolls across the sky closer to them The fork lightning excites young Billy who wants to stay up as things seem to be falling apart around him In the morning the storm’s destruction is apparent with felled power lines and trees having smashed into houses and vehicles alike David is tasked with getting some things at the store an activity that he and Billy will do together However before they depart both notice an odd mist hovering over the water something David can only surmise must be an odd meteorological aberration As they make their way to town Billy and David review the list given to them noticing that the mist seems to be here as well Once inside it would seem others had the same idea about grabbing a few things as David and Billy ueue up with other townsfolk The mist thickens almost enveloping the store as many ask about it and what it could mean Some venture outside not seen again but their piercing screams fill the air Worried now David and some others try to determine what this mist could be witnessing a grotesue tentacle emerge and pull someone into its centre This is no longer a low cloud but something with a mind of its own How anyone will get out is left to be seen in this King classic novella Sharp with a mix of spine chilling actions Stephen King keeps the reader on edge throughout Recommended to those who enjoy the work of Stephen King as well as those readers who find pleasure in stories about the weatherI find that Stephen King is able to come up with some many varied ideas in his writing pulling from his vast experiences This piece which begins as a simple nighttime storm soon becomes a horrifying story about a seemingly innocuous weather system David Drayton plays the wonderful protagonist in this piece mixing a laidback nature with a passion to get to the root of the issue He leads his family in being as safe as possible but tries to downplay some of the worries his wife exhibits throughout the story When it comes down to it David exerts a leadership role that the reader will discover throughout particularly when things get especially problematic within the store Other characters offer interesting flavouring to an already hyped up story giving King much to work with as he spins this tale effectively The piece itself is full of wonderful imagery from the powerful storm to this sinister ‘thing’ floating over the water which will eventually eject its slimy arms to pull unsuspecting people inside it as though feeding off the fear that the townspeople have of what’s going on King never shies away from this detail which is balanced out by some of the climactic writing that divides the chapters Anyone looking for some suspenseful work with not too much in the way of gory description need look no further At a time when some feel they are ‘living in a Stephen King’ novel I am left to wonder if I would prefer isolation from COVID 19 or from this mistKudos Mr King for a wonderful short piece that kept my heart pumping throughout I will keep finding and devouring these great stories of yoursLovehate the review?
