Masterfully told and as suspenseful as it is haunting, The Green Mile is Stephen King’s classic #1 New York Times bestselling dramatic serial novel and inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film starring Tom Hanks.

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,” the lime-colored linoleum corridor leading to a final meeting with Old Sparky, Cold Mountain’s electric chair. Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities over the years working the Mile, but he’s never seen anything 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. And in this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous truth about John Coffey—a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs…

    I have never read a Stephen King book before, but after having watched the film Shawshank Redemption I heard of this one and had to read the book. Compared to Shawshank, you will not be disappointed. The more you read, the better the story gets. After reading this entire masterpiece of a book, I recognize that this is the most emotionally packed book I have ever read. Each chapter has you feeling sad, or happy, maybe even angry at sometimes. I have never cried at any movies or at any books, this one almost cracked me at the end. By far the best book I have read in my life.

    I don’t know what I feel. I haven’t read a book in a long time. I fell in love with the movie as a child, sobbing my eyes out when John Cofeey died. Ask my dad, it’s probably the hardest he’s ever seen me cry. The tears didn’t come with the reading, those had to come from the movie. With the book came an understanding about some things though. I’ve learned so many things I might just wanna keep them to myself. But I’ll never forget, no matter how many come after, or how many came before, reading and living through this story.
  • nice.
