i just picked this book up because it looked appealing, and my friend with me that day said her sister loved the series. i could not put it down. this was one of the best books i have ever read. the 'professional' reviewer can say all the bad stuff he wants, but there is no author i would prefer over cooney and these books. its creepy, emotional, deep, and intense all spun into a paperback that will leave you on the edge of your bed, glued into your hands until its done. youll never regret getting this book. its the kind of book ive been looking for for the past three years. thw WORLD can trash this book for all i care because this book is amazing, even if the 'professional' reviewer doesn't see it. it's just what kids like us want to read!

As much as I love Caroline B. Cooney and her suspenseful stories, I had a hard time getting through Fog. It was just too unbelievable. The adults seemed purposefully obtuse, though really they were too easily manipulated by the principal and his wife. It was like every scene in the story was about someone picking on Christina and Christina had an annoying habit of fighting against everything and anything. I loved the Janie series and knew immediately that I would read every book in the series. This one on the other hand isn't for me so I'll probably pass unless the need to know what happens next compels me to continue.

Overly simple writing style, repetitive word usage, interesting plot concept ridiculously over dramatic behavior from teenage kids. Writer appears to have little respect for teens or their intelligence.

This book I picked up from Netgalley because I remembered reading it when I was in high school.  I was curious if it underwent any major changes to modernize it or if this beginning book of the trilogy was identical to the one I enjoyed so many years ago.  I’d like to say that yes, this is the same exact book.  And it brought me the same amount of thrills reading it now as it did in high school.  I’m happy to say that the characters  are as relevant and believable now as they were when the book was first released.  This is a horror book perfect for MG readers and the lower end of YA, as it has a 14 year old protagonist.  The main character, Christina, is also bullied throughout most of the novel, and because she never gives up, even when everyone is against her, I think she is a good role model and someone that kids can look up to.  Now, I did get annoyed by Christina because of how self-centered she was, particularly in the beginning of the novel, and she treats Jonah like crap. I think that MG readers would be able to better believe the position of absolute power that Mr. and Mrs. Shevvington hold over the students.  As an adult, it’s hard to suspend belief of the situation and believe that the entire town is bewitched by this couple.  And, the dreaded instant love does pop up late in the novel.  But besides that, this was a very enjoyable read.  Even as a re-read for me (10 years later), I never grew tired of the story and I still was surprised by the many twists of the book. From what I remember, Fog was my least favorite book out of the trilogy.  I can’t wait until they re-release Snow and Fire, so I can have this trilogy again in my collection. (I received a copy of this book from the publisher/Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.)

Fog is very interesting.Every one even christina's parents think christina is crazy. But the shevingstons are trying to make anya not even a person, like fake, but she tryies to help anya, but gets worse. This book is a great book. I read it in 4 hours. You don't want to put the book down because it is so interesting. If you buy fog you won't regret it.

no one told her the fog could kill. Madness. Or Death. Christina leaves her home on Burning Fog Isle, off the Maine coast, to go to school on the mainland. She's not worried. She can handle the work. She can handle the kids who scorn 'poor, hick islanders'. But there's one thing she can't handle. The evil. Something very, very dangerous is going on in the home of the principal, Mr Shevvington, and his wife, where Christina boards with the beautiful, dreamy Anya. Anay is being driven mad before Christina's eyes. Now the fog is coming in. It is cutting them off, as if it had a life of its own, trapping Christina and Anya in the old house on the cliffs above the sea. Christina and Anya are alone with the Evil. And then, it's just Christina...

This book had really great description but I got lost in a lot of the parts in this book because it was really strange and bizzare.I like all of Cooney's other books but this one was a little too over the top for me.It was still a pretty good book, though.

I read this series when it first came out back in early '90s. I was absolutely blown away at that time. All three of these books are definite page turners!! But growing up, I put a lot of the books I read as a child behind me. Recently I picked up a similar series and began rereading them, which reminded me of these. Deciding to search them out, I came here, and wanted to add my 'two-cents worth' to anyone who may be doubting. These books are wonderfully entertaining, and the Author is spectacular. Definitely enjoyable, and obviously memorable.

This book was great. When I read it i didn't wan't to put it down I just wanted to keep going. (I usually take my time in reading) (Loosing Christina 1) 'FOG' Is about A 13 year old whose shiped from her island home to the mainland for her Jr. High/High School education, (Read the book and you'll get what I mean) Unawhear that the people she and her freinds are staying with intend to do harmful acts on them. Over all this book has dark and creepy atmosper and is thrilling. 10/10 'A' 5 stars!!!!!
