Summary:

Stephen King’s classic #1 New York Times bestselling dramatic serial novel and inspiration for the Oscar-nominated film starring Tom Hanks!

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,” the lime-colored linoleum corridor leading to a final meeting with Old Sparky, Cold Mountain’s electric chair. Prison guard Paul Edgecombe has seen his share of oddities over the years working the Mile, but he’s never seen anything 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. And in this place of ultimate retribution, Edgecombe is about to discover the terrible, wondrous truth about John Coffey—a truth that will challenge his most cherished beliefs…

    This is one of those rare times when I’d rate the book (which I read originally in its installment form) and the movie as equally excellent. I couldn’t listen to this without hearing the rumble of Michael Duncan’s voice

    One of Stephen Kings best works. If you're not into the horror novels but are curious about his writing style and are a fan of crime thrillers/dramas than this is a must read.

    I had to read the last 2 chapters 4 times because I cried so hard I could barely read.

    Excellent book. Very well narrated

  • Hayley M

    I was in love with this book the moment it started. It inspired me to do research on the death penalties in each state. Much better then the movie

  • Yekaterina Olshansky

    Amazing book, fascinating! Would highly recommend it.

  • Katherine Koch

    Amazing book. I didn't want it to end. I love Stephen King and listening to his amazing characters brings such bittersweet life to stories like these. His views on humanity are so imaginative. He wraps his characters up in such vivid tales of right and wrong, good and evil. I find myself contemplating the complexity of his characters and their triumphs and losses long after the book is finished.

  • Sandra Bernight

    This was a grand read. I enjoyed so much that I want to hear it again.

  • Carol Downey

    I don't know how I made it to my mid-20s without reading this book or seeing the movie, but this was one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. Never have I felt so much empathy for a fictional character than I did for John Coffey. The writer and narrator both did a great job with this one. I highly recommend it. It has a very Stephen King feel but I'd argue that it is just outside the realm of the genre he typically writes. This book is right up there with Shawshank Redemption.
