I have just finished this book and wow what a read I m not at all into horror either in books or in films and even though my boyfriend has for years tried to get me to read Steven King I ve avoided him like the plague I did know that he wrote other types of books namely through the re makes of these books into Hollywood films ie The Shawshank Redemption Stand By Me and of course The Green Mile but still I was weary of approaching himIt was only after my boyfriend read this and nagged me into doing the same that I picked it up and I m so glad that I did The characters are just so beautifully written and I m not ashamed to say that I cried many a tear even though I knew exactly what was coming up having seen the movie numerous times If you are a fan of the movie then you can not fail to fall in love with the book as the movie is one of those rare exceptions in that it is very true to its original source The delight with the book as is often the case with books is that it goes into much detail in particular with the character of Mr JinglesThis book just illustrates how versatile King is as a writer and that in years to come will probably be considered one of the great literary genius of the Twentieth century

Stephen King ´ 9 REVIEW

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 bestseller lists simultaneously and delighted millions of fans the world overWelcome to Cold Mountain Penitentiary home to the Depressi. So I cheated on my local library last week I don t think she knows yet and I feel kind of bad about it I discovered a smaller library that was actually much closer to my house She definitely caught my attention but I never went because it just seemed like the selection was going to be much smaller and my current library and I have a great thing going right now But now I m involved with two libraries and boy is my life going great I found this book at the new library where I couldn t find anything else that jumped out to me I mean the fiction section is like three rows maybe four That includes every genre of fiction No mystery romance horror it s all fiction This is the book I left with last week and this is now my favorite Stephen King book This is King at the top of his game It s the perfect length with all six parts it ends well and he doesn t rely on horror or too much salty language to tell a fantastic story I ve always said King is the best when he stays under 400 pages or so and doesn t write about vampires or monsters He dabbles in the supernatural here but not for the sake of scaring the reader He just really really hit a home run with this thing I liked having six separate parts combined into one novel Each new section felt fresh with a new plot element and King helps reset the scene from where he left off before The characters are all well developed and none of them are too outlandish or over the top Even the antagonist That was great I have a solid lovehate relationship with Mr King but I loved this one Seriously this is my favorite book I ve read from him Go read it if you haven t already And watch the movie because it s a classic on its own And thank you Stephen King for a beautiful first date with my local library I hope our future encounters are this incredible
