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.

Everything is so good about this book, the story, characters the way it's read everything
"Wonderful story - performance couldn't have been better"
One of my favourite King's - the narrators pace and delivery fits the tale perfectly. All the characters are voiced to fit the personalities and you can tell them apart easily, but it is never over done. One of the saddest endings ever!
"I lived every word of the green mile"
I really enjoyed the film of the green mile,it being one of my favourites. So I had no expectations of enjoying the audio book!! However it brought all the characters to life, the descriptive urinary infection had me smiling and I cried along with the guards at the execution of John. It has been one of my favourite audio books, and I am saddened that it has finished.
loved it. so much better than the film. characters just came alive. one of kings best.
I loved this story, and I now love the film that much more as it's such a good representation.
I loved all of the characters and found the story completely captivating, not wanting to get out of my car where I was listening to it.
The reader was great, doing all the voices exactly as described. A must-listen!
A great story and a great narrator this was perfect to listen to on long drives.
there's very little difference between the movie and the novel, and I didn't feel like I gained a greater insight into the characters either. Still I found it enjoyable to listen too.
"Much better than film"
Very much enjoyed this its far better than the film would definitely recommend to all!
This audio book is one of the best. The story is brilliant and the narrator really does it justice. I would recommend this to anybody, and if you've seen the film first, remember that the book is always better.
Wow - what a book. A friend had said it was his favourite book of all time. Normally I steer clear of Stephen King as I am not a fan of horror stories. The Green Mile is not a horror story. I also steer clear of American literature and American narrators . The narrator made this book a ' page turner' . The book is wonderfully written and I think it too will become a favourite for me.
