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.

"King's best in years." (Entertainment Weekly)
There are no reviews for this title yet.
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.
"absolutely gripping story, beautifully read "
great characters and a fabulous story. a beautiful book and as ever Frank Muller brings the characters to life and reads with that gorgeous voice
"very good reading"
brilliant narrator apart from the cajun delacroix who sounds like a Pakistani from Mexico who lived in Glasgow for many years.
"A much loved tale"
Would have to be top in my 10
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.
