The journey of Paul Edgecomb through his life.
Percy Wetmore getting locked in the padded holding cell.
Jon Coffey's character kept[t me coming back for more and more.
There are a lot of parts that made me laugh.
It most definitely ranked among the highest out of all the audiobooks I have listened to. I loved watching the movie and knew I had to read the novel. I can definitely say that without a doubt this novel is amazing and I enjoyed every part of it.
Instead one I actually have three: Del's execution, John's hand in Melinda's recovery and Wild Bill's death, and John's execution. I actually had to hold back tears during all these senses, though for different reasons. Del's and John's execution brought sad tears while Melinda's recovery and Wild Bill's death brought tears of joy.
I know it's a little ironic to say but my favorite voiced character was Paul. I felt Frank Muller performed him perfectly, even with Tom Hanks in my mind. Something about his voice added something extra to the story, something that was necessary and that Tom Hanks would not have been able to add. Not sure exactly what it is, but it's something.
Well I do not think I could produce anything better than what is already out there now. The film is what made me want to read the novel, so I definitely wouldn't change anything about it. Nor even add anything extra or new.
All I have left to say is I hope everyone, especially young readers like myself, can read The Green Mile with the passion I did. Its an exceptionally well written novel and though it has its terrifying scenes its really an enjoyment to read.
From start to finish this is a masterpiece! I wouldn't change anything and I loved every minute of it.
Frank Muller reads it beautifully, acting out each part with deep enthusiasm and understands the importance of becoming the character.
The production is top notch.
Most of all, thank you to Stephen King for yet once again creating a feeling from his words that runs so deep that you laugh out loud with the humor and cry with deep real sadness, as well as happiness.
I would recommend this to a friend. Besides the fact that Stephen King's writing is superb and more descriptive at times than even a movie, the narration is fantastic.
John Coffey's last moments in the book. This gets me in the book and in the movie adaptation as well.
Not that I recall
This book caused more tears than anything, a little anger at times and there are a few moments that will make you laugh.
I enjoyed the movie version of this and had never read/listened to the book because I was afraid it would be too different. There are very few differences between the two. The ending went past the movie slightly and it was interesting to find out a few more things about the main character, Paul. I would listen to this one again and enjoy it just as much.
king is a fantastic writer. loved it, the narration and voices were captivating. makes me want to rewatch the movie!
This has been on my list to read for a while and it didn't disappoint, at least not the core story of the mile itself.
It runs into a similar issue of King's sometimes where there's a better novel waiting to be carved out of the large one if the want was there. The gimmick of this being released as serialized books probably made for fun reading as they went, but in one go a little bit more editing was probably needed to sew it all together better.
The story and emotion and psychology of the story was top shelf though. It is an extremely affecting book, read amazingly by Frank Muller, and well worth the read.
