Read & Download The Green Mile

When it first appeared 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 lists simultaneously and delighted millions of fans the world overWelcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary home to the Depressi. So I cheated on my local library last week I don t think she knows yet and I feel kind of bad about it I discovered a smaller library that was actually much closer to my house She definitely caught my attention but I never went because it just seemed like the selection was going to be much smaller and my current library and I have a great thing going right now But now I m involved with two libraries and boy is my life going great I found this book at the new library where I couldn t find anything else that jumped out to me I mean the fiction section is like three rows maybe four That includes every genre of fiction No mystery romance horror it s all fiction This is the book I left with last week and this is now my favorite Stephen King book This is King at the top of his game It s the perfect length with all six parts it ends well and he doesn t rely on horror or too much salty language to tell a fantastic story I ve always said King is the best when he stays under 400 pages or so and doesn t write about vampires or monsters He dabbles in the supernatural here but not for the sake of scaring the reader He just really really hit a home run with this thing I liked having six separate parts combined into one novel Each new section felt fresh with a new plot element and King helps reset the scene from where he left off before The characters are all well developed and none of them are too outlandish or over the top Even the antagonist That was great I have a solid lovehate relationship with Mr King but I loved this one Seriously this is my favorite book I ve read from him Go read it if you haven t already And watch the movie because it s a classic on its own And thank you Stephen King for a beautiful first date with my local library I hope our future encounters are this incredible

I have just finished this book and wow what a read I m not at all into horror either in books or in films and even though my boyfriend has for years tried to get me to read Steven King I ve avoided him like the plague I did know that he wrote other types of books namely through the re makes of these books into Hollywood films ie The Shawshank Redemption Stand By Me and of course The Green Mile but still I was weary of approaching himIt was only after my boyfriend read this and nagged me into doing the same that I picked it up and I m so glad that I did The characters are just so beautifully written and I m not ashamed to say that I cried many a tear even though I knew exactly what was coming up having seen the movie numerous times If you are a fan of the movie then you can not fail to fall in love with the book as the movie is one of those rare exceptions in that it is very true to its original source The delight with the book as is often the case with books is that it goes into much detail in particular with the character of Mr JinglesThis book just illustrates how versatile King is as a writer and that in years to come will probably be considered one of the great literary genius of the Twentieth century

Stephen King ☆ 9 review

On 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 t. I can now clarify not only with myself but with every other King fan that this particular book gave me rather noticeable palpitations and for a moment or two it made me feel uite faint Now I ve seen The Green Mile Tom Hanks film adaptation and although that was also amazing and it makes for edge of the seat viewing at times when all is said and done it has nothing on this bookThis book is up there with my list I like to call King mind fucks and in that group are books like The Shining and Pet Sematary and right there just on the outside looking in is Cujo who didn t uite make that group but still it s a book I consider a classic King There are elements of horror within these pages but it is done in a subtle way and I think King gets of a result with subtle and not with in your face blood and gore It just works better especially for me and it admittedly makes my toes curl The story is lead by Paul Edgecombe who is a guard in charge of The Green Mile which is a block that houses purely death row inmates While Paul was there his block housed some wild and mostly unforgettable characters one being John Coffey a larger than life man who was afraid of the dark and had been accused of a absolutely horrific crime John Coffey changes the lives of the inmates and the guards who work on the mile and we feel human compassion and emotion at it s finest The characters are finely drawn with such care and I felt as if I knew some of those personally I completely loathed the little dick Percy Whet and I haven t hated a character as much as I did Percy Whet at poor Del s execution It made for horrendously uncomfortable reading and that was mainly due to Percy Whet He is a despicable excuse for a human being that literally thrived on watching other people suffer I admire the way King writes about how Paul Edgecombe and his men attempt to give the men on death row respect and dignity until the day when they have to sit on the Old Sparky I think King captures these tender but also powerful moments with ease and with a skilful level that is pretty rare to me I finished this book this morning and I still don t feel uite over it yet I can report that my heart is somewhat calmer but I very much doubt that I ll be able to forget this book for the years ahead of me But let s be honest here why the fuck would I want to

    Rarely does it happen to me that I read a book which actually causes me to tear up to some extent and which I can't stop thinking about even months after turning the last page You might should have heard about the movie adaption starring Tom Hanks and the late Michael Clarke Duncan may he rest in peace and if you haven't considered watching it yet then please don't hesitate to do so for even one moment The Green Mile is easily on
