Stephen King is my favorite author, and this is no doubt a great book, but i found it very slow. Things just start to happen for me on page 200.

I would like to apologize to the library for possibly ruining their book. I didn't think I would cry so much.

depressing. kept reading just because I hoped it would get slightly less so, it didn't. I see why it's well renown but didn't enjoy it.

Does anyone remember that The Green Mile was released as a serial novel when it was first published? It was in six parts or something like that. I would read a portion and then have to flippin' wait to find out what happened next. The thought of putting up with that now, at a time when it seems like if a few more dollars can be squeezed from a buyer then let it be so, it's unthinkable if I can avoid it. But back when I was a teenager, I got a kick out of the thrill and surprise of waiting. It also helps that The Green Mile is one of Stephen King's better novels.

I remember reading this in the little serialized books, and eagerly waiting until the next one came. I loved this story. My husband saw the movie, and I told him I read the book back in the 90's when it first came out. I loved the movie, too, but of course, the book was better in my opinion. Just couldn't see Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecombe, however, in my mind from reading the serials, I had a different image. It was good to see things visually in the movie, though that I couldn't understand in the book. Its on my list to re-read sometime.

I read this book long before there was any talk of making a movie from it. To date I have refused to watch the movie for fear it would ruin my positive memory of reading this book. I couldn't put it down. A haunting read.

You may have seen the movie -- but the book is better!
