"A literary event." (Entertainment Weekly)
Audiobooks allow book nerds like me to venture out in public and keep "reading."
This is a great book. I know why this is essential, feel free to buy this with confidence.
The story is perfect. The narrator is perfect. What can I say? If you have somehow missed this movie or book, this one is amazing.
What a landmark performance! Frank Muller really is the "superstar" of audiobooks, and this title proves it. Fantastic effort. Fantastic story. Should be rated ten stars.
Frank Muller's performance is so magnificent, it's a whole different level of story-telling.!
He breathed life into it! Better than the movie. Plus there are far more details in the book than can be brought into a film.
I watched the movie years ago. It was interesting to compare the book to the movie.
There is no comparison to The Green Mile. It has a truly unique storyline. Stylistically it is vary comparable to the rest of Stephen Kings books. King is a true master of character development.
He adds a voice and emotion, but if you have seen the movie it is impossible not to compare the narration with the movie.
It didn't make me laugh or cry but it did make me think a lot.
This is a fantastic book. If you have seen the movie, the book adds depth to the characters that was very fascinating.
Everyone else is right. It's a great story, a fantastic reading (and I usually don't like Frank Muller), and some of King's best work. It's human, and detailed, and inspiring, and painful, and all the things you expect from King's better works.
Very enjoyable. Keeps your interest and very thought provoking. Frank Muller is an awesome narrater. Great character voices. I give this book 5 stars for sure. I have listened to many audio books and would put this one at the top of my list!
What a great story (and yes, I've already seen the movie)! This is a perfect combination of a great story and a great narrator.
Great! Movie was good, This is incredible, no complaints what so ever! Buy it
This was perfect! The narrator played the different parts perfectly and kept my interest the whole time! Perfect for a long trip or long commutes. Time just FLEW by!
