Editorial Reviews

Perhaps his best book, The Fog is James Herbert's terrifying thriller where contact with a mysterious fog turns the most innocent of people into homicidal maniacs. Given an extra dose of tension from the sly and gravelly voice of veteran narrator Sean Barrett, the poor folks in little Wiltshire don't stand a chance. The menacing and uncontrollable fog takes over, leaving the town of Wiltshire devastated and on the hunt for more victims. James Herbert is at his prime here and when paired with the dramatic performance from Sean Barrett, The Fog is an audiobook not to be missed.

Publisher's Summary

The peaceful life of a village in Wiltshire is suddenly shattered by a disaster which strikes without reason or explanation, leaving behind it a trail of misery and horror. A yawning, bottomless crack spreads through the earth, out of which creeps a fog that resembles no other. Whatever it is, it must be controlled; for wherever it goes it leaves behind a trail of disaster as hideous as the tragedy that marked its entry into the world. The fog, quite simple, drives people insane.

Critic Reviews

"Herbert was by no means literary, but his work had a raw urgency. His best novels, The Rats and The Fog, had the effect of Mike Tyson in his championship days: no finesse, all crude power. Those books were best sellers because many readers (including me) were too horrified to put them down." (Stephen King)
"There are few things I would like to do less than lie under a cloudy night sky while someone read aloud the more vivid passages of Moon. In the thriller genre, do recommendations come any higher?" (Andrew Postman, The New York Times Book Review)
"Herbert goes out in a blaze of glory." (Daily Mail)

Old School Horror

I read this over 30 years ago and wanted to revisit it. It is what it is...a James Herbert horror book. He has some good character details, but his strength is the big picture description of horror. His action sequences are usually over the top violent. They are gory. Like most horror books he tries to shine a light on the darker aspects of life....how twisted humans can be and just what little it takes for us to show our dark sides. I just enjoy the ride of a graphic horror book from time to time.

Sean Barrett is great. He brings the insanity to life. He doesn’t overdue the dialect.

Herbert and Barrett?...

Just like a diamond platinum ring, the partnership of James Herbert narrated by Sean Barrett is a beautiful thing to behold.
A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
Highly recommended.
