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.

    Story
    "Wow! One of the very best listens available"

    After listening to over 900 books from audible, it takes something really special to make me say “wow!” but The Green Mile just did it. I had liked the movie with Tom Hanks very much, however many year back that was, so I knew that version of the story - but of course the book itself is so much richer, so much scarier, so much more moving. Even with Stephen’s King’s brilliant writing, this might not have been the case had it not been for the excellent narration by Sean Barrett. Having just finished it, I feel both exhilarated and wrung out – both signs of a great listening experience.

    "Fantastic"

    I downloaded this because the movie is brilliant,what I hadn't expected is that the novel and the narrator took this story to a whole new level with such depth of the characters.
    A must read for anyone.

    "Just brilliant!"

    An absolute masterpiece, I enjoyed this book from start to finish, even though it was gruesome in places and not a 'happy' subject; a must read for Stephen King fans. The characters were well formed and the ending did not let the book down. I particularly enjoyed the narrator who was empathetic to the book.
