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.

WARNING!!! This book could seriously disrupt your life on the grounds of it being almost impossible to put down. Originally written in six novellas in the Dickensian tradition The Green Mile tells the story of a group of prisoners and the guards who watch over them in a small 'death house', waiting their turn at the electric chair in 1932. It stands alongside his Dark Tower books as being some of King's finest work. I can only imagine what it must have been like having to read them novella by novella with time in between: It must have been like Hell and Christmas five times in a year.read more

I read this book when it came out in installments, I would read the book as soon as it came out and pass it on to a friend, I could not wait until the next one came ot. What a book, it is a great read. He tells a great story about John Coffee and his amazing faith. This is a must read book and the movie is so close to the book it isn't even funny.read more

King was in his gladiator period when he wrote this. It came out as seven (I believe) little books before published as a complete novel. The movie was faithful to the book.read more

A long time ago, I watched about half of the film, The Green Mile. I think my mum has the DVD, I'll have to get it out when I'm home at Easter, because I've read that the movie was pretty faithful to the book, and I want to see that. I actually read the book, all of it, today, putting it down now and again to eat, wash my hair and do some school work. Very reluctantly, I'll have you know.

I didn't actually cry at it, but I came pretty close. Ouch. Particularly this part, for me:

"He kill them with they love," John said. "They love for each other. You see how it was?"
I nodded, incapable of speech.
He smiled. The tears were flowing again, but he smiled. "That's how it is every day," he said, "all over the worl'." Then he lay down and turned his face to the wall.


The Green Mile is really quick to read, but I wouldn't call it easy. The characters are well-written. In fact, Percy, who is one of the most awful characters, is one of the best, because you can imagine him, right down to not wetting the sponge. You've probably known someone a bit like him, a bully, someone who never understands why people think he did something wrong. The other characters were pretty well-written, but Percy was probably the most memorable for me (just like you probably remember the bully from school, but you don't remember the quiet girl who sat in the corner and followed the rules).

Definitely worth reading. It's not horror, by a long shot, and I don't know why people dismiss Stephen King as "just a horror writer", or "not a writer", when he writes stuff like this.read more

My favourite by Stephen King. Some sections a bit grisly, but I guess you have to expect that from a horror writer. Chilling, fascinating, very moving, much better than the film, though as films of books go I thought it wasn't bad.read more

This is my favorite King book (except for maybe Carrie).

I LOVE this book and was glad it was made into a movie. The book kept me on the edge of my seat. This big guy was accused of killing these two little girls but he didn't do it, he in fact tried to save them. He was a product of what the guards come to believe, God, a miracle worker. Given a gift to heal people. He passed it onto the guard so he could see for himself the truth, therefor giving him Life, he watched all of his family and friends die, because John Coffey gave him part of his gift. This was a really good story about an innocent man on death row aka The Green Mile, convicted of a hideous crime he didn't commit that had a wonderful gift.read more

This gripping tale of good against evil is impossible to put down. Set in a prison for those awaiting death by electric chair or 'Old Sparky' we see the best of humanity in prison officer Paul Edgecombe and his colleagues. One inmate in particular stands out as being pure evil - and it is not the giant black man guilty of the brutal murder of two little girls.read more

This book was originally published in six parts. As a result, it's a bit more repetitive than other King books, but it is still a very good book. There are many similarities to the movie, but some differences as well. If you've seen the movie first (as I have), it's not disturbing however; reading the book adds to your comprehension of the story.read more

King again proves himself to be a modern master with this spectacular novel. Green Mile is one of those rare stories which seamlessly marries film to text, and vice versa. Tom Hanks somehow inhabits the narrator, Paul Edgecombe, and one wonders how any other voice could have suited King's colloquial, dignified narrator. Indeed, any of the cinematic inhabitants of the mile would be equally at home in this printed land of their origin, and vice versa. Green Mile is infused with a dark, sometimes sweet, tone, tempered with the nostalgic pangs that inhabit so much of the author's fiction. Our heroes are threatened, and sometimes prevail, but there is also the constant presence of evil--"the bad 'un hurts us all in the end, doesn't he?" It says much about Edgecombe's soothing presence that the reader feels comforted, even when little solace is offered.read more

I had to think a bit about this one a bit. The serialization of this novel inherently made certain parts of it repetitive from section to section (a trick used by the author to remind the serial reader of what happened in the previous installment). However, I also believe that same (serial) format kept King from falling into some of the more annoying pitfalls he usually can't seem to avoid in his novels. Overall, I found both the story and the characters compelling and would rank this right up there with King's best.read more

A beautiful book, that will make you spit with rage, smile with joy and cry with a deep sense of sadness and loss. For me this is Kings very best, never before and never since had i hated a character as much as Percy and loved one as much As John Coffey. I cried at the end and loved every second of this book, the film is fantastic, but this is in a different league.read more

Stephen King should stick to writing these sorts of books. Don't get me wrong, I love most of his horror stuff, but it's this sort of subtle supernatural genre that I think really shows his talents as a writer and story-teller since the horror element isn't overshadowing everything else within the novel.The Green Mile is a little long, being comprised of 6 novellas and it is definitely slow-paced. That doesn't mean it isn't exciting, though! The slowness of the story really allowed me to delve into the characters and the story King has created. I felt like I got to know all the characters, especially Paul, whose first-person narrative it is. This made the action parts even better, since I had a connection with the characters and cared about them.I liked how the narrative jumped from Paul as an old man living in a nursing home to Paul as a middle-aged man meeting John Coffey. I think it added a lot to the intrigue, as there were multiple mysteries you were trying to solve at once. The Green Mile has a great message and is a compelling story that will leave you in tears by the end.I saw the movie before reading the book and honestly, if you've seen the movie, the novel won't add all that much for you. The movie is very true to the book and captures the most important events. Naturally, the book has other elements that added to my appreciation of the story. The parallelism between the prison and Paul's nursing home, for example, and a deeper understanding of the characters.There were some things I didn't like -- like I said, the pace sometimes seemed too slow at times. But then again, King's books always seem to drag just a little bit for me. I also didn't like how at times the characters all laughed at something as if it were hilarious, and I didn't think it was funny at all. Besides that, though, it was a good story and I enjoyed the read. I definitely recommend this.read more

 Have you ever read a book and been so affected by it that it had you in tears? The Green Mile by Stephen King is amazing!. I sat there tearing every few pages or so. It's incredible - the emotion, the feelings... Just the sadness that's presented. It's a prison story, but moves beyond that, touching on human sensibilities, on human emotions. What I can talk about, however, is the emotions that the books caused to arise in me.Do you believe that people can be evil? Hmm, let me be more specific. Do you believe that a person can be bad, or evil, without having any good in them? After reading this book, I would say yes, there are people who don't have any good in them. I know, I know - the book is fiction, but that doesn't mean that it can't describe what can actually exist in real life. One of the characters in the book was completely... I don't know if I can use the word evil in this context, but I guess bad, vicious, wicked, cruel would seem like the appropriate description. Even when people gave him a break, after seeing the cruelty, it made no difference, he continued the same backbiting, sadistic ways of the past. And it didn't matter how many times he was "forgiven" or let off, it was the same. One particular part that hit me hard was this."Then I understood why he had panicked, why he'd fought us so hard. He thought we were going to put him in with Wild Bill Wharton; that his punishment for the dry sponge was to be a dry cornholing from the resident psychopath. Instead of feeling sympathy for Percy at this realization, I felt disgusted and a hardening of my resolve. He was, after all, judging us by the way he would have behaved, had our positions been reversed.". A person like this can't help but think others will do the same to him as he would to others. I guess that holds true to a certain degree for everyone too. But any how, great book. I read it in 1 week - I couldn't put it down. You really should check it out!...read more

King steps out of his genre and presents a novel that isn't riddled in the supernatural horror that usually makes up his books. Instead, he writes a story which focuses on the horrors of human capabilities; a novel that looks into the greatest and most horrifying depths of the human heart. A painfully brutal story that will leave you questioning your take on justice. I have never believed in capital punishment and the depths of emotion on this novel only reinforces my opinion. A must read...possibly King's best ever.read more

An excellent series and a great movie. It's been almost 15 years since I read these books, but I remember enjoying them and being bummed I only had the first 3. I got them at the airport thinking they would last me the whole flight. Then after 3 hours of sitting in the plane, on the ground, and the 5 hour flight, I had torn through them. I couldn't wait to get to my destination and read the rest. While I love Stephen King's horror novels, his other works of fiction are just as compelling.read more
