David Drayton, his son Billy, and their neighbor Brent Norton head to the local grocery store to replenish supplies following a freak storm. Once there, they and other local citizens are trapped by a strange mist that has enveloped the town and in which strange creatures are lurking.

As the mist takes its toll on the nerves of those trapped in the store, a religious zealot, Mrs. Carmody begins to play on their fears to convince them that this is God’s vengeance for their sins and that a sacrifice must be made and two groups—those for and those against—are aligned.

When it is realized that staying in the store may prove fatal, a small group including the Draytons, store employee Ollie Weeks, Amanda Dumfries, Irene Reppler, and Dan Miller attempt to make their escape. They find that what’s “out there” may be worse than what they left behind.

About the Author

Few authors have tapped into our secret fears as adeptly as Stephen King, Master of the Macabre and one of the most widely read novelists writing today.

Read the book, then see the movie!


Stephen King's skill in establiching his characters' strenghs, weaknesses & fears, while simultaneously creating thoroughly realistic atmosphere and suspence is on full display in The Mist. While the novella is not a long read it is very engaging and could be read in one sitting. It flows very well and the characters could easily be people you know. He doesn't overstate any of their attributes. The 'monsters' that dwell in The Mist are compelling in both their brutality and efficiency, while the reader is left to ponder exactly how many of them there are and what they're truly capable of. The end of the book will leave readers wanting more! Great stuff. The Mist was made into a movie in 2007.
