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.

    "Long and sad"

    A long book, the characters and situations set out in great detail (in typical King fashion), and excellent for it. However that style may not suit all, if you want something the whizzes along this is not the book for you. Neither is it a horror story.



    One of my top 10 books.



    Fantastically narrated by Frank Muller who died on 4th June 2008 as a result of injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident in 2001. Frank was by far the greatest narrator that I have listened to. Have a look at his website.

    "Brilliant!"

    Thoroughly recommend this! Although I had already read book and watched the film, this didn't detract from the audiobook at all. Voice of narrator was an excellent fit to story and I've now listened to this three times over! My house has never been so clean!

    "The King"

    This is an amazing book. As usual Mr King's characters are multi dimensional, and i felt i knew them by the end of the 2nd chapter. The mouse is an ingenious addition. I have yet to be less than overawed by a Stephen King book. I've never seen this film but this book really moved me.

    "Fantastic"

    This is a fantastic book. I loved the film so was in two minds about the book. I soglad i tried it. It was just like watching the film but in more detail. Because I had watched the film first I had a clear picture of the characters which made it far more enjoyable. If you like books that's have been made on the big screen then this one won't disappoint.

    "Straight out of the top drawer!"

    Thank you, Stephen King, for an unrivalled listening experience, made all the more memorable by the choice of Frank Muller as narrator! Having previously both read the printed work and seen the subsequent, wonderful Tom Hanks movie I was unsure whether or not I would appreciate the story in audio form.



    My fears were groundless ... it was a ride I would not have missed for the world.

    "Give us more Stephen King"

    I really enjoyed this book and thought the narrator was excellent. I wish Audible had more Stephen King books - especially the older stuff.

    "Excellent narration"

    I read this before seeing the film. I still have not seen the film but the story and the narration are so good, I don't think I need to - I have so many vivid pictures in my mind. Excellent book. Brilliant narrator
