It was no secret that Stephen King owned the 80's.  He pumped out books such as Cujo, Christine, Pet Sematary, Misery and IT around this time.  Some of his most iconic work came out during the 80's.  As he moved into the 90's he was still quite a writer.  Although this particular time period you start to see a different side of King.  One that was a bit more thematic in his approach in some ways.  In spite of being a horror writer, some of King's most …

Paul Edgecombe worked at the state penitentiary with the prisoners…and the electric chair. The Green Mile by Stephen King is the gripping novel that is told by an old man in a nursing home who recalls to events of 1932. This is my second Stephen King book and I wasn’t disappointed with this one. I have never read a book like this one before, so this was a good change.   I think people will like this story because it has good characters, a good plot, and funny at times. John …

Miracle or Horror?
Stephen King has a problem but at the same time a gift. He has insomnia, and at the time he tries to sleep, that is the time when some great ideas pops. Green Mile was one of these perfect ideas that was made and remade over and over in his mind. Imagine if Green Mile instead of being that beautiful and edifying story, Stephen King would have decided to make a horrible tale with a big African guy who practices voodoo. It would be scary, but our great suspense author almost swaps the miracle for …

      I enjoyed this book and the way it created an emotional involvement and proved that there's a very defined difference between good and evil.  Stephen King did a great job of introducing the characters.  The story had a dramatic ending and can easily cause some tears.  I would definitely read this again and feel that Stephen King is an excellent author.

if you are wondering wich one is better, the movie ore the book. I can say both have the same impact. Beautiful story. I love to read something edifying like this.

Another great book. You fall in love with the main charactor. This book makes you really think about what we take for granted.

I find Stephen King's writing to be much more interesting when it's like the Green Mile. Much better than his regular horror novels.

Horribly sad, but quite beautiful.

King at the top of his game. Originally published in monthly installments, the tale unfolds brilliantly, giving a fascinating look at people, at justice, and even at miracles. If you're not a horror/gore fan, this will let you see King as storyteller rather than boogeyman.

Great King story that isn't so scary as it is affecting. The movie is the best King movie ever.

Awesome story.

"The Green Mile" is one of my favorite books. Though it's only the third King novel that I've read, I think it's safe to say that this is one of his best works. I've read "Carrie" and "The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon," and both are great reads, but "The Green Mile" is my favorite King book so far.    The story runs the gamut of emotions. From the sick feeling when the reader finds out about the grisly deaths of two young girls, to the sorrow you feel when you realize what might …
