From the Publisher
Sound so visual you're literally engulfed by its bonechilling terror! Stephen King's sinister imagination and the miracle of 3-D sound transport you to a sleepy all-American town. It's a hot, lazy day, perfect for a cookout, until you see those strange dark clouds. Suddenly a violent storm sweeps across the lake and ends as abruptly and unexpectedly as it had begun. Then comes the mist...creeping slowly, inexorably into town, where it settles and waits, trapping you in the supermarket with dozens of others, cut off from your families and the world. The mist is alive, seething with unearthly sounds and movements. What unleashed this terror? Was it the Arrowhead Project---the top secret government operation that everyone has noticed but no one quite understands? And what happens when the provisions have run out and you're forced to make your escape, edging blindly through the dim light? The Mist has you in it grip, and this masterpiece of 3-D sound engineering surrounds you with horror so real that you'll be grabbing your own arm for reassurance. To one side---and whipping around your chair, a slither of tentacles. Swooping down upon you, a rush grotesque, prehistoric wings. In the impenetrable mist, hearing is seeing---and believing. And what you're about to hear, you'll never forget. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Having said that....The presentation of the story in this fashion is very entertaining because it allows for sound effects and voice acting that you wouldn't find in a typical audiobook. I wish more stories would consider this format. The "3D" aspect of it is best experienced with headphones but also sounds good coming out of a car stereo.
What we get here though is the story through the eyes of a father with his son who becomes trapped in a supermarket and they try to make it through one night of horrors. This time going through the story I listened to The Mist in 3D Audio edition and what this is was a fully cast ensemble as in a radio play. All the voices are by different voice actors and sound great, I love productions like this. The one thing that disappointed me a lot was the 3D audio. What 3D audio means in this story is some voices are quiet, some are loud, and some only come from one speaker while another comes from another speaker. This made listening to this story very tiresome and troubling. I will admit I could not hear the entire story as some voices was too hard to hear. So I would skip this 3D audio version, even though the story is good.
Yes, check it out if you're a horror of science fiction fan. You can't go wrong. Happy reading!
