Fan submitted reviews of Green Mile: The Complete Serial Novel, The (Novel):|

Love the movie and always imagined what kind of "WTF" moment you would have if you read the book first, upon finding out the child rapist had miraculous powers. The characters eventually succumbed to murder, sickness, and disaster--in a way, John Coffey got off easy, in a controlled setting, and knowing exactly how, when, and where his Green Mile was going to end.

I collected this series when they came out. I would devour these books 1 by 1.

I just got done reading this, and I have to say: I've never cried my eyes out at a book, but I couldn't STOP crying. Stephen King, if you're reading this right now, you just made an avid reader out of me. John Coffey is such a wonderful character and I fell in love with him. Thank you for creating a novel that will stick with me for a LONG time.

I haven't been able to read a book in such a long time. If I see a thick novel, I shudder at how long it would take me to finish it. And the thin novels are, in my opinion, not as good. When I found your serial novels, I said Hmmm, a small book that I can read quickly and put away when I'm done and I won't have to worry about not finishing it before the book wears out.Knowing you as a superb writer, it really peaked my interest. Unfortunately, I couldn't stop. No sooner did I finish one book, I rushed to start another.This novel kept my interest all the way through. And yes, I cried too. Please don't stop the serial books. They are awesome and helped me to get back into reading.

The Green Mile is a wonderful story. If you're looking for another fantastic story from Mr. King, try "Pet Semetary" or the novella that contains " The Body." I think it is called "Different Seasons" or "Four Seasons" I can't remember. "The Body" was made into the movie "Stand By Me.". Of course, as with all Stephen King stories, the hook is ALWAYS better than the movie.

I am doing an interpretation of the book. I love it so much, as well as the movie. I can definitely say I am addicted to Stephen King.

What a fantastic story! There is everything that you need to keep you on your toes. Plotlines that engage you, characters that you adore and characters that you despise! Although I wish that the witnesses to John Coffeys death knew the truth..... I hated the fact that he died with their hate hanging over him!

OMG! This is and always will be my favorite book by Mr. King. Reading it made a tear come from my eyes and I have never cried from a book. Excellent read and the movie is even worth watching, but I recommend reading the book first.

WOW , I just finished The The Green Mile. I have now read a book of yours. That was beautiful. I cried. Now if I can find more written like that. Thank You.

This book changed the way I look at life! I loved both the book and the movie...READ THIS!!!
Posted By: Sheyla - November 30th, 2011 2:04:18 pm EST
This book left me speechless. It was amazing and the movie was amazing as well! I honestly LOVE this book and I couldnt stop reading the book!

I've read the book and I really enjoyed it! My favorite part is when the guards smuggle John Coffey to the house of Hal Moore to heel is dying wife. This is an exciting part of the book. I'm really happy I've choosed for the Green Mile!

loved the book. was sad when Del died. It was very sad thinking how he was ready for death and was at ease knowing that Mr. Jingles was going to "mouseville"then suddenly having percy burst his bubble at the last minute. I really feel sorry for Del. Didnt want Coffey to die but I guess the ending wouldnt have been as good if he didnt...

Even though I am only 13 years old this is probably the best King book I have read so far. I am currently starting the novel "Under the Dome" and so far it is a great book, judging by what I have read so far I am not sure that there is such a thing as a "bad" King novel. Stephen don't stop writing my family has every book you've ever published I hope to someday finish reading them all!
Posted By: Cheyenne - October 4th, 2011 11:00:34 am EDT
This is one of the few stories that I can really get into. The characters and plot are so developed, I just feel drawn in the story and feel what the characters feel. Bravo, King! Another wonderful tale.

I really liked the book the green mile, it had the feel of the twilight zone to it, I almost expected Rod Serling to pop out from around the corner
Posted By: Meg - August 12th, 2011 12:15:03 am EDT
I have always enjoyed your work. But the way you produced this series-- Green Mile - in the Dicksonian-like fashion -- really worked for my family. My son and I fought to see who would read the next installment. It was a wonderful experience for both of us. I think you could do that again and really bring paper book reading back. Try, try again Stephen.

the green mile is the best book i have ever read!
Posted By: ThatGuyOverThere - December 28th, 2010 1:30:20 am EST
This was the first King story that I read, and I loved it. It was a lot sadder than the movie, probably because it mentioned the deaths of Paul's wife and friends.
Posted By: Ninja Bunny - November 17th, 2010 9:34:05 pm EST
My mom and I read these together, picking up the next novella the day it came out. It made the experience all the more wonderful. I also recorded audio of me reading it for my boyfriend, who loathes reading, but wanted to read the book before he saw the movie. Is one of my very favorites.
Posted By: She - November 3rd, 2010 7:30:30 pm EDT

Eduard Delacroix is my favourite character in all of literature. Thank you for this wonderful novel, Mr. King.

Stephen King's the green mile was so magical
Posted By: Anonymous - April 17th, 2010 7:23:27 pm EDT
This is incredible. I didn't read the book yet, but the movie is amazing. Of course, the actors have their job well done, but this couldn't have been realized if it weren't for your basic great ideas... Congradulations!
Posted By: ShayShay - April 9th, 2010 6:12:23 pm EDT
I love this book. It's actully the first stephen King novel i have read. It took some time(Im not very intrested in reading) but it was definetly worth it and i found the book very intresting. I loved it!!!
Posted By: Yosgah - December 24th, 2009 1:11:28 pm EST
This is one of Stephen King's best works. A real page-turner, coherent from start to finish, read the book and watch the movie!
Posted By: Misery_MAN - November 27th, 2009 9:49:20 am EST
I love this book, I ove the part where John Coffey heas Olinda Mooress' tumor.
Posted By: JinNYC - November 9th, 2009 12:51:14 am EST
I haven't read the book yet. Looking forward to it. Have a question: The idea of a "mouse city," was that King or Darabont? Wondering because my sisters and I created a "Mouse City" using "toilet-paper rolls"--thinking a chance I met the writer.

I loved this book! One of the greatest things I've ever read! Am currently discussing the theme of good and evil for an english essay... Don't wait up! :D
Posted By: Scooby_doo Lover - August 12th, 2009 4:13:20 pm EDT
I really loved the characters in this book. It makes me think that this can really happen in the jail system. I felt sorry for John Coffey. Wild Bill made me mad, because he was so mentally crazy that John Coffey paid for his crime. Make a sequel to this book, please Stephen.
Posted By: SaxaphoneMan - May 14th, 2009 10:04:24 am EDT
Great book and movie, really liked the book more than the movie. I've read the book about 8 times. Go Stephen King! Yeah!
Posted By: Pitbull - May 8th, 2009 9:45:11 am EDT
Mr. King, teach me how to write like this - heartbreaking, with crackling dialogue, wonderfully believable characters good and bad, and as usual your occasional gallows humour to boot. A wonderful read.
Posted By: T-mac - April 9th, 2009 10:16:04 am EDT
I am using this book for my junnior project. this is by far the best book i have ever read. Also noticed the previous comment in the book concerning the .45
Posted By: John - April 7th, 2009 9:22:01 pm EDT
Great book. Just a comment which may help if ever Stephen feels a need to revise the book. The book says Percy Wetmore's sidearm is a .45 pistol -this type of gun has 7 bullets in its magazine. But when Percy shoots Wild Bill, he empties all "6" bullets into him. So, it's either Percy changes his sidearm to a 6-shooter (like Paul Edgecombe's .38 special), or revise the text to provide for 7 shots of the .45 pistol.

This by far the best novel of King's that I have read. Granted this is only the second novel of his that I have read, but this one just makes me want to read all of them and I know now that I probably will.

I randomly picked up the book on Saturday, and finished yesterday. I still feel like the story is haunting me. So here I am searching through King's other works in hopes that I'll find something that gives me a comparable feeling. Right now I'm thinking maybe I never will. Best book I've ever read so far...
Posted By: Andrew - March 4th, 2009 9:46:53 pm EST
Possibly the best book I have ever read. I love the story and the ending is sad, but it doesn't leave you hanging like his other books (I do like it when it leaves you hanging though) but if you ever see this book and think "maybe", think "yes"
Posted By: Athirae - January 31st, 2009 2:46:24 pm EST
I borrowed this book from my father. Not to my surprise, I couldn't seem to put the book down. If I read, it was for hours at a time. This is a truely compelling story that no one will stop reading until they hit the back of the book. I, even though I'm 14, loved this book more than any other I've read in my life. I look forward to reading more of King's works.
Posted By: Nahyan - January 14th, 2009 3:24:49 am EST
A great read, moving, touching, hunorous, scaring and involving all at once. You can empathize with all the cast event Mr. Jingles
Posted By: Bailey - January 9th, 2009 3:01:58 am EST
King's last great novel. It ranks up there with Carrie, It and The Stand, and just a little bit ahead of The Shining.
Posted By: Theodora - December 9th, 2008 8:41:58 am EST
The first Stephen King book I read was Cell, and I loved it. This was my second book. When I got to the end I was in tears. A truly great book.
Posted By: J.graley - December 5th, 2008 11:41:36 am EST
Most often when I finish a book I feel a bit of withdrawal and dissapointment. I'm no longer involved in the plot and I've left the setting. I feel as if I've traded a piece of myself for a few hours of someone else. I'm thankful for this type of magic and most often enjoy the show broadcast by Mr. Kings writing straight to my own imagination. I loved this book. With all my heart, I loved it. I was humbled in my opportunity to walk in Paul Edgecombs shoes up and down "the mile". And much like Paul I was glad when I had finally taken my last steps out of that awful place. The Green Mile manifested an almost needed tension I've never felt before. It was almost refreshing. But, all said and done...when I had finished....I didn't long to be back there like with most stories. I was glad to be gone from E Block and back into my own little cell called real life. I truly enjoyed reading the complete novel and was happy I didn't have to wait months for each new piece. Maybe that's what created such quick tension...too much to handle all at once. I encourage any person with a beating heart to read this book... before the electricty goes out.

This was my first King Novel. I got into it when my little sister took Goalie school and my mom mentioned that my sister did the "John Coffey" face when she was hit by a puck. When I asked who that was and my mom gave me a general synopsis of the story, I was hooked. I rented the movie that night. I cried. I bought and read the novel later on in the week. I cried harder. This story is the one that touched me deepest out of all of the King novels I've read (and I've read most of them). John Coffey, Mr. Jingles, Paul Edgecomb and even Percy Wetmore will always have a special place deep down in my heart.
