#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.

Book was good. But the adultery theme seemed unnecessary-- why include that? Narrator did the voices well. Open ending is appreciated. It would have been more convenient with a TABLE OF CONTENTS which includes chapter numbers, chapter names and at which Minute/Second-Point one can find the beginnings of these chapters. Such a table of contents would be useful for most of the books here on

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.
