Synopsis

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.

Green Mile

Even better than the movie! Not a big Stephen King fan but this is the second book I read of his. The first was the Talisman. I liked the way it flowed between the writers current telling of the story and reflection back of the actual time.

A wonderful tale, more detailed and gripping in its way than the excellent movie inspired by this one-of-a-kind story. Devour it yourself today.

Having seen the movie so many times. Reading this was amazing. The film did it justice, but the power of King's storytelling is as evident in this work as in any of the volumes of the Dark Tower.

One of the few instances in which the movie is as great as the book upon which it is based.

Extremely well-written with a story-line that doesn't let you put the book away. It starts off a little slow, but it is needed for the 'movement' seen in the later half of the book. I highly recommend this book.
