    I'd give this 4.5 stars...

    Imagine this: you are stranded in a grocery store with a bunch of other people, some sane and some not so sane, while a fog-like mist surrounds the store and is enshrouding a mass of creatures that seem from a different dimension. Sound like a creepy story line? It's better than that. Stephen King, the "Master of the Macabre", creates some truly out-of-this-world creatures that lurk in the mist. But....he makes the atmosphere inside the store almost as dangerous as the outside by adding in some human pandemonium. It's all about adaptability. Some people don't cope well and start to lose it. The most fearsome by far is the witch-like Mrs. Carmody preaching the end times and expiation. She believed in a biblical reason for the mist. Others suggested The Arrowhead project, a government preserve outside of town. Whatever is behind the mist, it's classic King!

    The Mist a nonstop action packed novel

    In the book, a father and son go to the local grocery store after the worst storm that there city has seen in a long time. While at the grocery store a mysterious thick mist comes over the city, but the mist is not what they are concerned about it is the creatures that lurk in this mist. As the story progresses it shows how the must try to survive and defended the grocery story from this horrible creatures that are out to kill them. Will they survive this horrible event read and find out.
    The Mist by Stephen King was a 5 star action packed horror novel that just keeps on getting more interesting the more you read. This book is great if you enjoy scary, creepy, or just plan weird events. This book kept me guessing as to what would happen next, the whole time I was reading it. There is never a slow part in the whole story. This book deals with how people will react to post-apocalyptic events, it shows how people will pick a leader in that type of situation no matter how silly this leader maybe. I thought that it was interesting the way he show how people begin to go crazy without civilization. This book was one of the best that I have ever read and I highly recommend it.

    Can Never Have Enough King

    If you think the movie was great, you haven't read the book. I saw The Mist when it first came out and loved it so much, that I purchased it on dvd as soon as it was released. Though I was horrified each and every time I saw it, I loved it time and time again. I didn't think it got better, until I read the book. It gets better. It gets more real. It gets you peeking out the windows at night wondering what that noise was. It just plain gets you. Excellent! What I always expect from Stephen King, and what he never fails to deliver to me, a sense of comfort knowing my favorite author still enjoys making us scared, and I love him for the endless hours of fear, anxiety and the unexpected laughs he has given to me. You, Mr. King, are WINNING. Eat your heart out Charlie Sheen. King is simply wonderful.

    James Herbert's The Fog

    To the person who keeps referring to this work, I don't see how King lifted anything, except for the fact that he wrote about a mist enveloping a town. That is all. Did you read the book at all?? There are no other similarities at all. "The Mist" is a story about a fog enveloping parts of a town due to the errors of the military who open up a portal and horrible creatures come through.
    If you had your way, no writer would ever be able to write on any subject for fear of being accused of plagerism. I guess the people who wrote "Mighty Joe Young" should be accused of plagerism since they wrote about a large ape in love with a girl which sounds so much like "King Kong". Get real!!

    dont buy

    This is a ripoff. For a couple dollars more you can get this story plus a lot more short stories in Skeleton Crew. The story itself however was very enjoyable.

    SHORT STORY!

    Although I did enjoy this book, I think it is a rip-off to pay 7.99 for a short story of 134 pages, especially one that was printed previously under another title ! ! ! ! ! ! GREED, SHAME ON YOU.

    Quick Read!

    This book is not very long. However, it gets right to the point! Steven King provides just enough back-story to keep you interested while he slowly lets the mist come. Great book for an airport or anytime you want a quick read!

    Stephen King's e-book samples are a rip-off....

    I have downloaded more than one sample of Mr. King's books. The samples download only a few pages (compared to other e-book samples) and most of the pages are credits, etc. One is given 3-5 pages of the actual book (at most). This policy needs to be revisisted.
