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)
Great story, great listen, beautifully read. This is a moving story that will transport you and transfix you. Stephen King is at his peak here, in non horror/pure storytelling mode, and I don't think there are any novelists who can better his ability to capture a scene, a moment, a sound or a feeling like he can. I've read the book, seen the movie and now listened to the book and enjoyed every moment of all of them.
Audio book fanatic
For all those that have enjoyed the film more than once - this book is for you. Frank Muller is a perfect match for this wonderful book by Stephen King, and the book and more dimensions than the film.
The ending in the book is much more powerful than the ending in the film (if you can believe that).
This is one of Frank Muller's finest performances. His voice is a perfect fit for this book.
Yes - except that it is too long - and it was written in episodes, so reading it in one sitting is not how Stephen King meant it to be read (or listened to).
This is Audible at its best.
Frank Muller is one of the best narrators, he brings the Green Mile to life
"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.
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
This is Stephen King at his very, very best, a brilliant and thought provoking story full of his usual well rounded characters, some you fall for, some you just loath, (all of them you feel you know personally!) I have not seen the film version of this story, don't really want to, this audio book superbly narrated by the amazing, (and so sadly missed,) Frank Muller told the story for me as good as it could ever be done. Nobody does characters as fully as Mr King, and he tells awesome stories too. A MUST READ!!! You will not regret it!
