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.

brilliant narrator apart from the cajun delacroix who sounds like a Pakistani from Mexico who lived in Glasgow for many years.

The killing of del
Great voice in all
Quite scared for a lot of this story
Laughed loads at the moon pie sceen
Loved it,read it and seen the film but this was better. The narrator was very good and made the story come alive.
"Excellent story & narration"
Absolutely superb narration of a wonderful gripping and very moving story. 10 out of 10.
even better than the film much more detail and a few things that have shown me what the film has either missed out or got wrong
"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.
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.
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.
"Worth listening to, even if you've seen the film."
I haven't read it.
The detail that the film misses.
The characters are brought to life as vividly as in the film.
