Description

#1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King’s terrifying novella about a town engulfed in a dense, mysterious mist as humanity makes its last stand against unholy destruction—originally published in the acclaimed short story collection Skeleton Crew and made into a TV series, as well as a feature film starring Thomas Jane and Marcia Gay Harden.In the wake of a summer storm, terror descends…David Drayton, his son Billy, and their neighbor Brent Norton join dozens of others and head to the local grocery store to replenish supplies following a freak storm. Once there, they become trapped by a strange mist that has enveloped the town. As the confinement takes its toll on their nerves, a religious zealot, Mrs. Carmody, begins to play on their fears to convince them that this is God’s vengeance for their sins. She insists a sacrifice must be made and two groups—those for and those against—are aligned. Clearly, staying in the store may prove fatal, and the Draytons, along with store employee Ollie Weeks, Amanda Dumfries, Irene Reppler, and Dan Miller, attempt to make their escape. But what’s out there may be worse than what they left behind. This exhilarating novella explores the horror in both the enemy you know—and the one you can only imagine.

User’s Reviews

Reviews from Amazon users which were colected at the time this book was published on the website:

⭐I got back into reading thanks to Stephen King, having stopped reading after graduating high school.After working through some of his works, ‘The Shining’ being the novel that truly wet my mouth for more, I ventured off to taste the work of other authors. I was safe with the King but that couldn’t be what reading was about for me, or eventually I’d find myself without anything else to read, thus giving up reading for a second and possibly final time.So it has been a few months since my last King book, and reading ‘The Mist’ reminded me how potent good writing can be.I LOVE ‘The Mist’. I saw the movie first, years ago, and was dumbstruck. This novel only solidifies my gawking at his horror.This book doesn’t just present you with evil monsters outside in the mist. In fact, King reveals the monsters INSIDE the store, and the psychology of fear and anger and the deadly combination of the two.Mob mentality is truly something to witness, and King brings us as close as he can while tempers rose and fear swallows them up resulting in death and more death.Being as I just finished, I could ramble on forever honestly.This is a quick, gripping novella that shows Kings teeth are as sharp regardless of his story’s length.If you haven’t read any King before (how can that be?!) then this is a great story to start with. If you have experience with King but haven’t experienced ‘The Mist’, do something nice for yourself and dive in!

⭐THE MIST is my favorite short story by Stephen King. I first read it as part of SKELETON CREW (1985). I remember thinking, “It’s the perfect length for a movie, without leaving out any details,” since movies based on King stories are rarely as good as the books. (However, the movie has a much more brutal ending, in my opinion.) To this day, I’m not quite sure why I love this story so much…maybe the contrast of monsters: the ones outside and the ones inside. If you’re a horror fan, you’re probably familiar with this story, but, just in case…Following a monster of a thunderstorm, a mysterious mist spreads across a small town in Maine. People who were shopping at the local grocery store soon realize they need to stay inside. Eventually, the survivors find out about a military experiment called “The Arrowhead Project,” which is believed to have brought numerous leviathan creatures into existence.Of course, the nightmare doesn’t truly kick off until the town’s religious fanatic forms her own cult within the store, and the people who still have fully-functioning brains realize they need to get the hell out of there, regardless of what is hiding within the mist.Even if you watched the movie, I’m still recommending this novella. Readers will be able to get to know the main characters on a very personal level, in a way the film could not provide.

⭐Its always scary when there is the unknown and you can’t quite see it. With the mist that came, it mostly kept the creatures hidden from the people. Only a few were actually seen but so many different varieties out there!Wonderful scary story! The movie was different from the story. Read the story first before watching the movie. The movie has a different ending.

⭐Yep, this book was creepy! And i loved it! Actually, i saw the movie when it first came out, just now i read the book. I think they are pretty much the same. They both made me hope i didn’t have nightmares when i went to sleep…. and that is a good horror story. Loved it!!!

⭐Great book! Another great book by my favorite author, you are never disappointed with a Stephen king book! Read it over and over!

⭐Great product. Fast shipping. In perfect condition

⭐Seen the movie and loved it? You’ll love this more, trust me. The book goes into much detail about the character’s, and it pulls you into the story even more.

⭐I’m always amazed at how much I appreciate Mr Kings writing. Just went from reading Sleeping Beauties, which was fantastic, to the Mist, which I saw on TV, but reading it seemed like the first time. The screen doesn’t come close to reading his words. Thank you Stephen

⭐The Mist can be found in Skeleton Crew, the first and longest story of that short story collection.Also a film.It builds the suspense well to a climax.Well developed characters and observations.Published as a stand alone short story in September 2021 as part of Hodder’s re-issue of King’s backlist of novels.Paperback is 181 pages long.No illustrations within.

⭐I read this book over the course of 3 or 4 nights and really loved the story. Stephen King has his reputation for a reason – he is a class writer, and his storytelling and ability to create an atmosphere is second to none. Being a novella, you’re launched straight into the story and it grips you from the outset.Unfortunately when my book arrived there was a slight bit of damage to the edges of the pages and also the back cover is misprinted and blurry. At first I wasn’t sure whether this was a play on the “mist”, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t. (Lol)

⭐Having watched the film years ago, I felt it was time I should read the book. Quite a quick read but very descriptive. My only gripe is the ending, it felt like a bit of a cop out, but I’d totally recommend.

⭐A strange fog/mist starts to come down over a small town in Maine after a severe summer storm and the the story then follows David and his 5 year old son Billy, who travel into town after the storm abates to pick up some much needed supplies. A neighbour goes with them, but David’s wife Stephanie decides to stay at home. The trio become trapped in the local supermarket as the mist starts to unveil the horrors it contains within.I thought I had read all of Stephen King’s books, but must have missed this one (or should I say mist this one!), so was glad to come across an excellent used copy from Amazon.This was wonderful writing from the inimitable (although many try) Mr King. He has such a beautiful and heartbreaking way of writing about ordinary people caught in extraordinary circumstances in this genre. Loved it!

⭐I wanted to get this novel of Stephen King’s The Mist because I like reading novels.
