Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: If you've seen the Tom Hanks movie, you know this is a great story. But do yourself a favor and listen to it. Frank Muller, chosen to narrate by King himself, turns each character into flesh and blood with the pitch and pacing of his voice. I spent a Saturday with my headphones on because I couldn't turn off the story before finishing it. (I apologize for my rudeness to the person who called me that afternoon. You couldn't have known that I was dealing with life and death issues.) —Beth Anderson

Publisher's Summary

Hear this history-making serial novel - from cliffhanger to cliffhanger - in its entirety. When it first appeared, one volume per month, Stephen King's The Green Mile was an unprecedented publishing triumph: all six volumes ended up on the New York Times best seller list - simultaneously - and delighted millions of fans the world over.

Welcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary, home to the Depression-worn men of E Block. Convicted killers all, each awaits his turn to walk the Green Mile, keeping a date with "Old Sparky," Cold Mountain's electric chair. Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities in his years working the Mile. But he's never seen anyone like John Coffey, a man with the body of a giant and the mind of a child, condemned for a crime terrifying in its violence and shocking in its depravity. In this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous truth about Coffey, a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs...and yours.

    Story
    "Doesn't get any better than this"
    What made the experience of listening to The Green Mile the most enjoyable?

    The writing of Stephen King, of course and one of the best narrators out there, Frank Muller. I place Frank among the highest ranks of narrators, including the incomparable Dick Hill (Jack Reacher series), Ron McLarty and others.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Green Mile?

    the passages on Paul's dawning realization that John Coffey may not have murdered the little girls and the interaction between Paul and his wife, Janice, done SO EXPERTLY that you forget it's a man speaking a woman's part.


    Have you listened to any of Frank Muller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    n/a


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    impossible to do.

    "Mr. King never fails to impress me."

    A masterful tale with a remarkable performance. I had seen the movie years ago, then listened to the book, and have been inspired to watch the movie again. Outstanding story!
