I love The Green Mile. John Coffey so brave and his dignity is overwhelming. This book just brought me to tears. Then the movie OMG. Michael Clarke Duncan ,just brought John Coffey to life. Such a great choice of actor for the role. Its sad how Duncan was taken from us in real life. Miss that gentle Giant.

I remember this story coming out a hundred pages or so every month! This tale is also one of my very favorites, the characters are so strongly defined, I loved them or hated them with such a passion. The movie with its wonderful actors, Tom Hanks with his second Oscar in two years for this tale and Michael Clarke Duncan as the sweet and gentle giant will always be a favorite of mine. Thanks for the experience, Mr. King!!

This may have been the best pure story of all King's books. It's perfect for the movie. I think it has not gotten all the credit it deserved because of the way it was published and the fact that the movie was so well done that it almost overshadowed the book. An interesting idea to publish the story in serial form, but it might have been better served as a regular book. To this day, I don't have a copy even though it's one of my favorites.

Excellent story, in both forms! I have to say, having read it as it was published, I enjoyed the anticipation of waiting for each installment (thankfully not as long as the waits between DKTower books!). It forced me to not zip through and miss things like I usually do. Then I got to reread them all together, which was cool.
