Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creepy! This is the best psychological thriller type book I've ever read. King is so good at making his characters seem real. I was so creeped out by humanity after reading this book. Highly recommend if you're looking for something out there.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Kind of funny... but not a good book It's funny because when you realize what the mist is you realize how ridiculous this story is. Bad book, even worse movie. Gave it 3 stars because I still read it all the way through so I guess some people would enjoy it still.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This Book I read this book for the first time when I was 10 years old. It absolutely terrified me and I have read it probably another 10 times since. It's a short read but King gets across everything he needs to. One of my favourites. Chilling, emotional, and an excellent work of horror.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Really liked it I actually watched the movie first, but the book was way better. I also loved that it was a small pocket sized book that was ideal for carrying around.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For Those Who Love the Classic, Creepy Stephen King Despite being only 240 pages in length, this story has everything that fans of the Stephen-King-creep-factor could want. With characters you can't help but love, characters you can't help but love to hate, and a slew of new, nightmarish creatures on par with Pennywise the Clown; Stephen King takes you on a fast-paced tour de force that is sure to leave part of your mind wandering forever in the mist.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was alright. I have had a late start at getting into Stephen King, the first book of his I read was ¨The Mist¨. It was not great but it was ok. My friend tells me that I should have chosen something different, so I went to Chapters and purchased ¨The Green Mile¨ and a few others. I'll let you know how they did. AV
