Summary:

#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…

In the wake of a destructive Maine summer thunderstorm, an impenetrable mist descends from the direction of a local military facility and infiltrates the small town of Bridgton. David Drayton and his son Billy are dragged into a living nightmare as unnatural and violent forces concealed by the mist begin to emerge, wreaking havoc in their wake. Now trapped in the local supermarket with a ragtag group of survivors, David unexpectedly faces a growing threat from within, one that promises to challenge the boundaries of sanity itself. In this horrifying mist, hearing is seeing—and believing. And what you’re about to hear, you’ll never forget.

Originally published in his acclaimed collection, Skeleton Crew, this riveting, eerie novella proves why Stephen King is a master storyteller in short form.

    I think this story is very terrifying because of the claustrophobia that it evokes. I also read somewhere that the real horror story is that Mrs. Carmody is 100% correct. Interesting I would say that this is an excellent short story with the only criticism being that there was too much time spent describing the people and their relationships. It cost for too much downtime for a novella; if it were a novel that would be different. But once the action started it was terrifying. I won't comment on the ending, but suffice it to say since I watch the movie before reading the novella, I was a bit let down. All in all an excellent read. Will Patton is a fantastic narrator. He has narrated quite a few books that I've read, mainly for Stephen King, and his voice and delivery are absolutely perfect. I could listen to him read the phone book.
