Product description

Amazon Review

This novel (now complete in one volume) taps into what Stephen King does best: character-driven storytelling. The setting is the small "death house" of a Southern prison in 1932. The charming narrator is an old man looking back on the events, decades later. Maybe it's a little too cute, maybe the pathos is laid on a little thick, but it's hard to resist the colourful personalities and simple wonders of this supernatural tale. As Time magazine put it, "Like the best popular art, The Green Mile has the courage of its cornier convictions ... the palpable sense of King's sheer, unwavering belief in his tale is what makes the novel work as well as it finally does". And it's not a bad choice for giving to someone who doesn't understand the appeal of Stephen King because the one scene that is out-and-out gruesome can be easily skipped by the squeamish. The Green Mile was nominated for a 1997 Bram Stoker Award. --Amazon.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have not been too keen on Stephen King probably because I have always wrongly believed that anybody who is so prolific can't be that attentive to detail. This book however proved me wrong. Having seen the film I was keen to read the book and it certainly didn't disappoint. The descriptive words are so atmospheric I am simply struck by his and others writers talent and at the same time jealous too. I could almost hate him for being so talented, actually I think I do.

Wow I had of course seen the film but as always the book is more powerful because the characters are alive in your own head. I am and always will be a little in love with the character of John Coffey. A piece of me dies every time he does. (Yes I've watched the film so many times I almost know the dialogue of by heart). If you too love the film then read the book, a work of pure genius.

A relative novice when it comes to Stephen King novels I was totally enthralled with not only the originality of this novel but the inspiring and totally absorbing style of writing. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a damn good read.
