Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."
This is a great book. I know why this is essential, feel free to buy this with confidence.
The story is perfect. The narrator is perfect. What can I say? If you have somehow missed this movie or book, this one is amazing.
I've watched a couple of King movies and they've been okay but I've never read any of his stuff. I am extremely glad that I read the other reviews for this title. This was a tremendous book. The characters were all well developed and believable. The narrator did a great job with the different voices. Now I'll have to see the movie to see if it's even close to this good.
What a landmark performance! Frank Muller really is the "superstar" of audiobooks, and this title proves it. Fantastic effort. Fantastic story. Should be rated ten stars.
Military vet (USMC), gamer, recent MBA grad, father of twin girls, and probably the awesome-est person in the world.
I can't believe I haven't read this before.. After 11-22-63 I was struggling to find another good read and this satisfied that need 10 fold
Frank Muller's performance is so magnificent, it's a whole different level of story-telling.!
He breathed life into it! Better than the movie. Plus there are far more details in the book than can be brought into a film.
I watched the movie years ago. It was interesting to compare the book to the movie.
There is no comparison to The Green Mile. It has a truly unique storyline. Stylistically it is vary comparable to the rest of Stephen Kings books. King is a true master of character development.
He adds a voice and emotion, but if you have seen the movie it is impossible not to compare the narration with the movie.
It didn't make me laugh or cry but it did make me think a lot.
This is a fantastic book. If you have seen the movie, the book adds depth to the characters that was very fascinating.
The Green Mile is, in my view, Stephen King's best novel. The story is compelling, with a touch of the typical Stephen King occult spin, but totally believable. If you have seen the movie, the book runs true to the movie with very little if any difference. Even if you have seen the movie, it is worth listening to just to hear Fran Muller narrate.He is quite simply, the greatest narrator who ever lived. His rendition is more like acting than reading, bringing every character to life. He can switch between multiple accents and male and female voices with ease and believability. He makes you, the listener, feel as though you are there, in the moment, watching each character rather than listening to a reading of a novel. I go out of my way to listen to ANY book that Fran Muller reads. This one, along with The Prince of Tides, are my two personal favorites. If you have never listened to him read, listen to this book and be prepared to be hooked on Frank Muller.
Everyone else is right. It's a great story, a fantastic reading (and I usually don't like Frank Muller), and some of King's best work. It's human, and detailed, and inspiring, and painful, and all the things you expect from King's better works.
Very enjoyable. Keeps your interest and very thought provoking. Frank Muller is an awesome narrater. Great character voices. I give this book 5 stars for sure. I have listened to many audio books and would put this one at the top of my list!
