The Green Mile Stephen King read online review & book description:

The #1 New York Times bestselling dramatic serial novel and inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film of the same name starring Tom Hanks, the “literary event” (Entertainment Weekly) of The Green Mile is now available in its entirety.

When The Green Mile first appeared, serialized as one volume per month, Stephen King’s The Green Mile was an unprecedented publishing triumph: all six volumes ended up on the New York Times bestseller list—simultaneously—and delighted millions of fans the world over.

Welcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary, home to the Depression-worn men of E Block. Convicted killers all, each awaits his turn to walk the Green Mile, keeping a date with “Old Sparky,” Cold Mountain’s electric chair. Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working the Mile. But he’s never seen anyone like John Coffey, a man with the body of a giant and the mind of a child, condemned for a crime terrifying in its violence and shocking in its depravity. In this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous truth about Coffey, a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs...and yours.

  • For Those Who've Always Wanted to Read King

    If you've always wanted to read Stephen King, but you don't want to check under the bed every night, this is the novel. The fear King impresses in The Green Mile is not outright, but it is still ever present with each sentence. It sheds light on the true evil in the world and the war we wage against it with the Good. King uses the prison setting to show a world where good and evil coincide, and Good doesn't necessarily win out in the end.
  • Better than the movie..

    I was a bit concerned that, having seen the movie many times, the book would not be entertaining. There was no need for concern. This is the best book that Mr. King has written and it was a absolute pleasure to read. Quite wonderful!

    Never saw movie, book is excellent seemed as though I had seen a screen, keep find myself rethinking character's action, kinda like a what a real good movie can do to a person. King is a master at this guess I may re-read again.
