Fortunately that's one of the things the TV series is changing.
I have been an SK fan my entire life. matter of fact, just ran out of bathroom reading material so I grabbed skeleton crew and started reading the mist again for probably the 15th time. (what they did to the movie ending of the mist was nothing short of horrific - book ending was better) anyways, I've suffered through some not so good SK books, but none have made me as angry, none have bored the shit out of me like this steamy turd. the ONLY reason I finished it is because it's SK.
PISSED...ME...OFF! crappy, stupid, far fetched, unrealistic retarded story.
I know I know....it's SK....it's supernatural....so how could you expect realism? I say no way in hell people behave and do the things they did in the book. it was just simply DUMB. and the ending.....ARE YOU KIDDING ME! so thank GOD they are supposed to change it for the TV version.
but....even if they improve the ending....if they follow the book very closely, and often times the book gets the shaft like with the Jack Nicholson version of the shining, but if they follow the book closely, this is gonna suck imo.
but it's SK....so my stupid ass is gonna sit there and watch it.
PS - coolest SK quote I've ever come across. in his book 11/22/63 (a pretty good read) he describes our world as follows...
A universe of horror and loss surrounding a single lighted stage where mortals dance in defiance of the dark.
