Publisher's Summary

At Cold Mountain Penitentiary, along the lonely stretch of cells known as the Green Mile, killers such as "Billy the Kid" Wharton and the possessed Eduard Delacroix await death strapped in "Old Sparky". Guards as decent as Paul Edgecombe and as sadistic as Percy Wetmore watch over them.

But good or evil, innocent or guilty, none has ever seen the brutal likes of the new prisoner, John Coffey, sentenced to death for raping and murdering two young girls. Is Coffey a devil in human form? Or is he a far, far different kind of being?

There are more wonders in heaven and hell than anyone at Cold Mountain can imagine. In The Green Mile, Stephen King builds the tension page by page and then delivers a revelation that will truly blow your mind.

    "Amazing."

    amazing stories , so much better than the film. The back story of Edwa Delqua and his crimes and his more indepth realtionship with Mr Jingles. My favourite character is Brutus , just because of how he is. Great story , great reader.

    Fascinating had hold of me from the start. Such an enjoyable book.

    Story
    "Powerfully Moving"

    There are few films which leave an indelible mark on you and one of those is King's The Green Mile. I remember watching this with my wife and choking up at the sheer power of this amazing and soulful tale and so I decided to get the audio book and I am pleased to say was just as blown away.

    Having now read the book, I can understand why the movie version was so great. Unlike many book to movie conversions, The Green Mile didn't suffer from huge editing which left only a fraction of the story compared to the book. Sure, the book does provide us with extra detail which all works superbly. What brings this book to life is the fantastic narration. A good book can be sunk by a poor or unpleasant sounding narrator and I am sorry to say that there were some other King books I'd have liked to listen to but for the irritating drone of the narrator used. The Green Mile is that perfect marriage of powerful story with excellent narrator and it's a shame this narrator wasn't used to voice many other King novels.

    Having just finished Christine which I was sadly disappointed with, The Green Mile delivers everything you'd come to expect from a Stephen King novel. The aforementioned Christine and this book are about the same length and yet I found The Green Mile just flew by while I found Christine a labour of love to get through.

    There has only been one other book I've listened to on Audible that has made me well up and so this ability to move the reader by such a powerful story is rare indeed - well for a man if that doesn't sound too sexist. Just recounting some of the story and the things the characters did made me well up all over again as I told my wife. perhaps I'm too much of a softy but the power of this beautifully crafted story will touch your heart in that rare way that the best stories can.

    I dare you to not love this wonderful story and have it leave you thinking about it for a long time afterward.

    "Brilliant Story, Great Reading"

    The Green Mile has always been my favourite story, this audio version makes it come alive. The greater detail in the story, compared to the film adaptation, creates a greater atmosphere, and, in places, is much more graphic. A brilliant story, and a great performance.
