    Poorly written and offensive

    Setting: a Christian camp for kids as young as 12 focusing on teaching abstinence, but also distributing condoms and diaphragms- who would send their child to that camp? Adults go missing, and the kids try to prepare for the winter. Focusing heavily on teen sex, rape and co-habitation of teens. When an adult come on the scene, he's eager to move to the kids camp, offering all his supplies , machinery and labor, in exchange for a bunk. He'a fine with obeying the authority of the "chief". This guy can't stop talking about the girls' periods and how he has lots of supplies for that, all while insisting he doesn't mess around with kids. The 13 year old "chief" assigns one girl to create make up from forraged ingredients, and to teach the young girls how to wear it. He also proposes a plan to preserve their clothes and make them last longer by having everyone wear nothing but underwear for 3 hours a day. They've been alone for a few months and they've already gotten in amazing shape, fationed speaes and killed 3 grown men . Not sure where it's going now, but I'm out. Thought I'd spare some of you some precious reading hours.

    Read This Book

    I loved this book. I just could not put it down. I finished it several days ago and it is still playing over in my mind. It is a great read and moves at a nice pace. I want more like this one....

    Very Good

    This is my first book by Stan Morris and I greatly enjoyed it. I loved how the author had a twist for almost every chapter. I enjoyed all the characters and I loved how they showed good traits like teamework and courage along with many other traits. With this book you dont know whats going to happen and you cant stop reading it. I highly recommend this book if you love mystery and a bit of suspense.

    I recommended my wife stock this on middle school shelves

    The premise of the book is plausible science fiction.
    The story demands you to suspend a practical view of young adults and assign adult wisdom.
    I thought I was going to have trouble with that, but given the circumstances of the plot, I'd like to think I was reading about my former Boy Scout Troop's abilities.

    For a free book, this is a hidden gem.

    Great story.

    With a flood of vampire novels on the market. It was very refreshing to read a very original story. I hope that there are more stories available by Stan Morris. I really enjoyed this read.

    Good story with strong characters - highly recommended light read!!

    Surviving the Fog is a recommended YA read both for it's incredible storyline and believable characters. I didn't want the story to end. Check this one out, the price is right and you won't be disappointed.

    The concept of the story drew me in, but I finally gave up when

    The concept of the story drew me in, but I finally gave up when the 23 year old started rationalizing a "relationship" with a fourteen year old.  I liked the upside down hierarchy established by the group, where a thirteen year old took charge despite being much younger than several others in the camp.  I found a few other plot points interesting as well, but my biggest criticism is the mundane writing style used in the story.  It was terribly structured at points with one monotonous line after another.  Some of the plot concepts seemed inane, building a wall and stacking cabins... maybe I missed something in the logistics.  I was not impressed enough to make it through the first third of the book.

    Awesome Read! Really enjoyed the story!

    This ebook rocked. Great story with awesome characters that made the read fun. I think it was aimed at the preteen readers, but still made for an enjoyable read.

    Good read

    I thought the story line was entertaining. More for YA, but it kept my attention. Mike was more mature than some adults I know.

    ¿Surviving the Fog¿ is ostensibly about a group of kids stranded

    “Surviving the Fog” is ostensibly about a group of kids stranded at summer camp who are forced to build a
    mini-civilization due to some vaguely environmental, vaguely alien end-of-the-world weather phenomenon.
    Unfortunately, the book is filled predominantly with shallow conversation between the 7 million forgettable characters. There are so many grammatical and spelling errors in this book that I am not sure if it was even edited. The writing-style is choppy to the point that it’s almost robotic in nature, for some reason there are very few contractions. This is a YA book so the simple-speak is understandable, but the way the characters in this book interact with and speak to one another is not at all like a real group of teenagers would.
    Most of the characters have plain, forgettable names, and there are so many of them that are introduced with a single characteristic such as “an Asian-American girl” that you forget all but 3 or 4 almost immediately. Often, months pass in a single sentence, and even when dynamic events happen the reader is simply told about them (i.e. Luis was murdered) rather than allowed to live them with the characters.
    The idea for this book was a good one, I was hoping for a modern-day Lord of the Flies-type story, but The Fog is only mentioned a couple of times. Almost no character development and utterly un-engaging, I wanted to quit read
    ing this more than once, but I kept holding out hope that something interesting would happen at the end to wrap up the good idea that had thus far been poorly executed. It didn’t.

    Very inventive, thoroughly enjoyed it

    I found this book very interesting and all in all a very good book. I hope there is a sequel to it that tells how the characters got off the mountain or if they did and where the fog came from...

    This was a fine survival story about an emerging culture of youn

    This was a fine survival story about an emerging culture of young people. Although certain aspects were a bit implausible, particularly the very low loss of life during the first year, the emergence of a strong leader despite not being the oldest or strongest of the group actually comes across as very believable. It is a feel-good, yet plausible tale.
