i absolutely LOVE the green mile. especially in the serial novel format. it's a great story, well told. and even tho it's over, the contest at the back of each book makes a great writing exercise... just write an essay instead of 50 words or less.
I'm not a King fan, but this series was great! The Green Mile represents the last walk taken by condemned prisoners. Is John Coffey a vicious murder of children, or a gentle giant wrongfully accused? Set in 1932, this story of murder, mystery and miracles is told from the point of view of a prison guard.
This series is fantastic. Paul uncovers the truth and is beside himself with worry. Is he acting out of obligation or mercy. How can he best serve an unselfish man whome noboby trusts? Read these books in order.
Cold Mountain Penitentialry has seen its share of death through the years. Now it's John Coffey's turn to take that final walk down the Green Mile. Yet prison guard Paul Edgecombe has uncoverd a devestating truth, which means he could be too late to save both himself and Coffey. You see, death by execution may be the easy way out. It's living with the consequences that may last an eternity...
I picked this edition up at B & N because I just couldn't bear to return the library copy with this last chapter unread. This is the best and deepest Stephen King I have read since the Shining!! It is sad,soulful and suspenseful! Really!
Consider me a prodigal King Reader after this reading, ready to give Stevie another chance!
Book 6 of The Green Mile - The conclusion of a strange but beautiful thriller by Stephen King. He holds you in suspense throughout the story, but also infuses this tale with tender gentleness from a surprising source.
