The Mist

The Mist – Stephen King

Unlike the last review, I actually enjoyed this book a lot. Ever one for a helpfully descriptive title, a mysterious mist does indeed largely feature in the story. Again, the main character is a professional artist (hmm, think I may have forgotten to mention that in the Cell review, sorry).
Following a powerful storm, a family finds their house survived pretty well. Heading into town to pick up supplies, the mist on the lake seems to be moving with some sort of purpose. Arriving at the supermarket, things start to get even stranger. For fans of suspense, I don’t want to reveal much more, other than to say a thick mist can hide the identity of all sorts of strange characters.
If Alex happens to be reading this, leave me a message and let me know what you thought of the book yourself.
