The Mist
The Mist | Stephen King
The storm rolled across Long Lake in Maine with a fury, leaving David Drayton and his family with fallen trees, downed power lines, and no electricity. At his wifes request, David heads to the local supermarket to stock up on supplies, taking his young son and neighbor along for the ride. But the strange white mist that lingered on the lake has followed them to town, stranding them all in the store. Because something in the fog is taking people -- and you can hear their screams.

Currently reading 'The Mist' by Stephen King. Last night I drove home, in the dark, in patches of dense fog. This morning it's as thick as pea soup. A big shout out to Mother Nature for helping to make the story extra creepy! 😂

I enjoyed this more than I was expecting. And I feel like I'm one of the few who liked this ending over the movie ending (never saw it just heard about it). I listened to it on audiobook and it was enjoyable and quick. Loved it!

1. Tagged my current audiobook!
2. Finally a weekend where I have no work and no obligations beyond some family stuff so reading and light homework.
3. I do like hard boiled eggs but mostly in salads I'm not a huge fan of them on they're own anymore.
4. I'm not sure there's so many names I like. But it would be more unique.
5. I always do!!

Great short story! Easy, quick to read and the perfect amount of scares. I love Stephen King‘s book and the way he creates believable characters. You can feel the tension in every page, and it‘s hard to put down. The ending is different from the movie (from those who watched it), but it was quite appropriate imo. Worth reading!

This was a short, good read. We passingly saw the movie on TV and my husband loosely explained the plot to me. I decided I should read the book because I love some horror novels! Now, I need to watch the movie.

I‘m familiar with the adaptations of The Mist not the actual story. What I loved the most about the story is that it was even better than the adaptations.I am rating this book four stars out of five. Its a quick read, but one that will give you goosebumps and make you think twice about turning a blind eye to The Mist rolling through your area. #scribner #stephenking #themist

Old trees have always reminded me of the Ents in Tolkien‘s wonderful Ring saga, only Ents that have gone bad. Old trees want to hurt you. It doesn‘t matter if you‘re snowshoeing, cross – country skiing, or just taking a walk in the woods. Old trees want to hurt you, and I think they‘d kill you if they could.

One of those terrible visions came to me—I think they are reserved exclusively for husbands and fathers—of the picture window blowing in with a low hard coughing sound and sending jagged arrows of glass into my wife‘s bare stomach, into my boy‘s face and neck. The horrors of the Inquisition are nothing compared to the fates your mind can imagine for your loved ones.

Just a great novella by Stephen King. Of all of his books I love his short stories and novellas the most. I live in an area where during the winter we get fog so thick you can‘t see anything past maybe 100 feet, I can definitely feel for these people.

jpmcwisemorgan This story still freaks me out every time I see fog or mist. 1y

First of all, congratulations on your milestone! My favorite novella is probably Stephen King‘s The Mist. I hated the movie and it is different than the short story, but the it has such a strong sense of reality that I fell like I am living the story. Love it!❤️

Z is for ZBS Foundation. I have to be truthful, I used google for help with this one. Apparently, there is a recording of The Mist out there, available on vinyl, which was used as a way to raise money for another charitable event King was part of.
#KingAtoZ

Thanks to @GarthRanzz for bringing all of us together on this one and to everyone else who participated. It's been fun 😁

GarthRanzz Thank you for participating Cassie! It‘s been great fun! And I know this recording. This is the one I talked about for M is for The Mist. But I had no idea there was a vinyl version!! I‘d try to find it but I have a feeling it‘s too rare for my wallet. (edited) 2y
Addison_Reads @GarthRanzz I thought someone used it for M, but I couldn't remember who. 😀 In my quick search for a picture, there were a few on eBay that had sold for $40ish, so not as pricey as I would have thought. 2y
GarthRanzz Whoa, that‘s almost reasonable. Resist the urge... 😊 2y

M is for The Mist. One of King's best short stories/novellas, originally published in Skeleton Crew. Taking place in Bridgton, Maine, The Mist is largely a story of what hidden horrors can do to the human psyche and how not knowing what is hiding right in front of you can turn neighbor against neighbor. I've always considered this King's homage to H. P. Lovecraft and his Ancient Ones. Perhaps why I love it so much. 👇

GarthRanzz My image is based on a 3D audio production that I originally bought for myself on my 20th birthday. I listened to the cassette tape of this so often on my weekly trip between small town Nevada and small town Idaho that I wore it out. Luckily I've since found an electronic version to listen to whenever I want. Proudly proclaimed as, "The best non-music binaural demo available anywhere!" Quote ? 2y

rohit-sawant Love everything about this post! 🙌🏻The Mist is one of my favorites stories (I think I've said that more than once during KingAtoZ 😆) It's also one of the few cases where I found the adaptation to be just as terrific & haunting. I don't know what it says about me that the movie is my go-to 'comfort film.' 2y
GripLitGrl Awesome post👍 I am fairly new to audiobooks so this is the first I've heard if 3D sound. I feel like I must experience this myself & what better way than with a great King book! 2y
Leftcoastzen Love to see that old cassette audio ! 2y
GarthRanzz @rohit-sawant Thanks Rohit! It was one of those adaptions that just changed enough to make it as good as the original. And that twist! I haven‘t tried the tv adaption yet though. 2y
GarthRanzz @GripLitGrl I‘m not much of an audiobook listener myself. But this was an acted out one and at the time I was driving 230 miles, round trip, to have the small town weekly newspaper that I ran, printed. It was great listening to it in stereo in my car. 2y

Currently reading Stephen King‘s “The Mist” on this Sunday afternoon. I have been craving a horror, thriller lately and a small trip my local library procured this gem.
I have watched the movie on Netflix, and have recently noted a series. I took some time to check it out and was disappointed to find that it does not follow the book.

Even though I really liked the book I need to say one thing. Since I've seen the movie before I read the book, I gotta say that, even though ending of the book was interesting, ending of the movie was done so much better and it literally left me speechless.

Here's an #audibleshelfie - I've been on a real Stephen King kick lately and have recently bought a lot of his audiobooks. The Stand got cut off right under 11.22.63! I can't wait until I finally get around to listening to these. With 11.22.63 I actually bought the kindle book first, then was able to get the audiobook for $3.95. Can't beat that for a 30-hour book! The other two pictured were offered for free last week. #audiobook #stephenking

TricksyTails Yay! ♥️ Stephen King 👑 I'm moving like sludge through my King (re)read. Hope this slump goes away. Do you subscribe to an audiobook subscription or just buy as you go? 2y
JenlovesJT47 @TricksyTails I have an audible subscription which is $14.99 a month for one book credit. It's a great deal because The Stand costs $44.95 without a credit but I was able to use my credit for it. Most of the audiobooks are bare minimum $20 unless on sale so I think it's well worth it! 2y
