    At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, the convicted killers on E Block await their turn to walk the Green Mile and keep a date with the electric chair. Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working as a guard on the Mile, but he's never met anyone like John Coffey.

    "Right Book, Right Reader.... Enjoy!"
    Overall

    The Green Mile is a great book. Originally released in 6 "episodes", the best thing about the narrative is the way Stephen King meters out the story to the reader.Just enough to keep you hooked at every point, but told with a "slow burn" and a style that gives you the feeling that everything that you are being told is leading up to something big, which it is!

    The Characterisation is awesome in that you connect with these people, and you are given a clear idea of how to feel about the characters (with one exception, who you will learn to judge as the book progresses) without being patronised! Very satisfying.

    This book is primarily about people, but it places them in a well realised environment that you do feel a part of as you read.

    This book is read by Frank Muller, who has such a distinctive style, that after you've finished this audiobook, you'll find it hard to listen to any other book read by him without thinking you're listening to The Green Mile.

    He is quite simply, the perfect reader for this particular book.

    I warn you now that if you start this book, there's a good chance that you'll be hooked, and you'll want to listen to it again and again........... and you'd be right to do so.

  • Rumpole and the Golden Thread

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 13 mins)

    In this collection, Horace Rumpole takes on the con-o-sewers of the art world, journeys deep into the throbbing heart of Africa, dabbles in some female politics, decides the country is a very dangerous place, and incurs the wrath of Hilda.

    Rick says: "Fantastic Listen"
    "Really Entertaining"
    Overall

    Mortimer has such a sly wit and provides such a rewarding delivery of his material that it's always great to read "Rumpole". However, it's Bill Wallis' perfect voice that makes this essential listening. Brilliant!
