    1. 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 fi [...]


    2. The Green Mile a nickname acquired because of the color on the floor in the Cold Mountain Penitentiary's ( somewhere in the American South), E Block , death row under a different alias, during the gloomy year of 1932, the inmates taking the long, long walk their last, to see Old Sparky, the electric chair that will end the lives of these miserable convicted killers Nevertheless , the unique green surface is the last thing the nervous residents are thinking about , in their humble cells, peering [...]



    3. Rarely does it happen to me that I read a book which actually causes me to tear up to some extent and which I can't stop thinking about even months after turning the last page. You might should have heard about the movie adaption starring Tom Hanks and the late Michael Clarke Duncan (may he rest in peace), and if you haven't considered watching it yet, then please don't hesitate to do so for even one moment. The Green Mile is easily one of my favorite movies of all time, and to be completely hon [...]


    4. 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, i.e. 'The Shawshank Redemption', 'Stand By Me' and of course 'The Green Mile' but still I was weary of approaching him.It was only after my boyfriend read this and na [...]


    5. I'm a huge fan of Stephen King and The Green Mile has got to be one of the best novels he has ever written. In fact, it's one of the best novels I have ever read in my entire life and a great piece of literature to boot!The novel is simply amazing. Once I started it, I couldn't put it down! It is very beautifully written and extremely moving at times. The plot is original, gripping and heart-breaking. All the characters had depth, and were vivid, intriguing, and believable. The story is told so [...]

    7. [Reviewed in 2003.:]Have you ever read a book and been so affected by it that it moved you to tears? I just finished reading The Green Mile by Stephen King and I sat there tearing every few pages or so. It's incredible - the emotion, the feelings Just the starkness of what's presented. It's a prison story, but moves beyond that, touching on naked human sensibilities, on basic human emotions. Ugh. I am really bad at reviews.What I can talk about, however, is the emotions that the books caused to [...]


    8. Siempre había escuchado cosas positivas en torno a esta historia, pero por alguna razón, siempre le había escapado. Quizá porque suelo ser muy sensible con ciertos tópicos, y por lo poco que había escuchado del libro, sabía que iba a sufrir como condenada pun intended. Y así fue, me lloré la vida, principalmente luego de la mitad del libro. Pero no me arrepiento de haberlo leído, por lo contrario, se ha convertido en uno de mis libros favoritos en la vida, y no solo del autor.Bella his [...]

    10. Después del chasco que me llevé con It, sentía la necesidad de leer algo más de Stephen King, algo que me quitara el mal sabor y me recordara porque admiraba tanto a este señor. Mi papá salió de inmediato al rescate y me ordenó recomendó que leyera La Milla Verde. "Es de los mejores libros de King", dijo. Y yo, como toda hija que se respeta, lo ignoré. No fue sino hasta que Wilier me dijo: "sí no lloras eres una insensible", que decidí darle una oportunidad. Después de todo tenía q [...]

    12. I have always wanted to read a Stephen King but since am not into horror genre, I maintained a secure distance between me and books by one of the most famous authors. So when my friend recommended it to me I decided to finally read Mr. King and am glad that I read this.Story revolved around the inmates of Cold Mountain Prison who are there for murdering someone waiting for their death on Old Sparky, an Electric chair. Story is told by prison's warden Paul Edgecombe. Life was pretty much simple f [...]


    13. In my humble opinion this is one of Stephen King’s finest pieces of work, along with the Dark Tower books, The Stand and The Shining. The writing is beautiful, the characterization masterful, the story itself downright compelling and the ending absolute perfection. A masterpiece from start to finish!OLIVIER DELAYEAuthor of the SEBASTEN OF ATLANTIS series


    14. This was undoubtedly one of the best books I have ever read and I enjoyed it even more than I expected (and I had set the bar super high!). This was also the most horrible book I have ever read - but in the best possible way!Not a single sentence was unneccessary; I enjoyed every scene and interaction.The main character was wonderfully developed - he really seemed like a real person and at times it was hard for me to forget that he's just fictional. It was easy to forget that all of this was jus [...]


    15. One of King’s best, up there with The Shining and The Stand.King is able to terrify because he is adept at drawing us into a scene, luring the reader in with deft characterization and attention to detail that creates empathy and understanding.In Francis Ford Coppola’s brilliant The Godfather part II, in the scene where a young Vito Corleone (played by Robert De Niro) shoots Fanucci, he wrapped his pistol in a towel and the cloth catches fire after the shots. That detail has stayed in my mind [...]


    16. What a terrific read. Stephen King has done it again. Five wonderful stars. I'm glad that I don't remember hardly any of the movie, because it makes the book so fresh. All I remember is that it had a mouse and huge black prisoner. This book is so much more. It brought all kinds of emotions in me. A very thought provoking novelThe story is set in the 1930's at the Cold Mountain Penitentiary. The Green Mile refers to the tiles on the floor in the death row area. It's where every prisoners had to w [...]


    17. When I decided to read The Green Mile, I was absolutely, positively 100% sure it would never measure up to the movie, and was I ever wrong.All of the characters (including Mr. Jingles) are so well drawn that you feel like you are experiencing their lives and feelings right along with them in Cold Mountain State Penitentiary-1932.If I could rate this magical, unforgettable (rip your heart out) story more than 5 Stars, I would not hesitate to do so. What else can I say except."Time takes it all, w [...]


    18. I've Just revisited this book and I'm still at 4 stars with it, for the same reasons I stated in my original review. It was never going to jump to five, but I'd been deliberating whether to shuffle it back to a three.---------------------------------This Depression era tale of life on death row, somewhere in the Deep South, started slowly and it took me quite a long time to grow familiar with the characters on the Green Mile, as it was known. It’s a long book, so that’s not so much of an iss [...]


    19. Bueno, ha pasado un tiempo desde que acabé el libro, y ahora ya puedo dejaros mi opinión:Este es el primer libro de King que leo, debido a que no me suelo leer libros o autores tan aclamados para evitar así una decepción, que es lo que normalmente me llevo. Sin embargo, he de reconocer que King me ha sorprendido, y a pesar de ser una lectura por entregas, me ha encantado su forma de narrar. Es un libro ameno y entretenido, que en ningún momento se hace pesado o repetitivo, en el que todos l [...]


    20. I first read The Green Mile in serial form, purchased an episode a month from the Lucky's grocery store in Fontana, California. Now, for a little history lesson.I was born and raised in Southern California. I lived in the same house for 13 years, until my parents went bankrupt and moved to (oddly enough) a much more expensive neighborhood in Colton. Basically I went from the ghetto to Upper-middle class in a single move, and only because my parents went into default on well, on everything. By cl [...]


    21. Creo que la combinación del lápiz y la memoria crea alguna clase de magia, y la magia es peligrosa.El Pasillo de la Muerte, también conocido como La Milla Verde o Milagros Inesperados es uno de los mejores libros de Stephen King. La historia está narrada en primera persona por Paul Edgecomb, quien se encuentra en una residencia geriátrica, en sus últimos años de vida. Por eso, decide contarnos antes de morir un hecho que cambió su vida. Él era el encargado de uno de las secciones de la [...]


    22. De los que llevo leídos de King (aún me faltan muchos…) de momento este es el mejor.El relato de Paul Edgecom, jefe del pasillo de la muerte o milla verde de la penitenciaria de Cold Mountain, me ha encogido el corazón. Me he emocionado con el grandullón Coffey, he sentido pena por Delacroix, rabia con el carcelero Percy, ternura con el ratón Cascabel y mucha mucha impotencia.Ha habido muchos pasajes del libro en los que lo he pasado realmente fatal, ¡qué sufrimiento!Es un libro que te [...]


    23. Το έχω κατατάξει στην κατηγορία "τρόμου",μαζί με τα υπόλοιπα βιβλία του King,αλλά για το μόνο που έχεις να φοβηθείς διαβάζοντας αυτό το βιβλίο είναι για τους δακρυγόνους αδένες σου(καλά,αν έχεις δει ΚΑΙ την ταινία δεν το γλιτώνεις το κλάμα!)Από τα πιο ανθρώπινα που έχει γράψει, [...]


    24. Whenever I mention to people that Stephen King is one of my favorite authors and that they should read more of his work, sometimes I get that "look". So many times he's dismissed into the "genre ghetto" as a popular horror writer and not a gifted writer of "literary" fiction. It frustrates me, because many people have no idea how gifted of a writer he truly is and how versatile he is. Obviously these same people have never read his novellas in the collection Different Seasons, or The Dead Zone, [...]


    25. Miracoli a Cold Mountain "Se ci si pentisse di quel che si è fatto, un uomo può tornare al tempo più felice del suo passato e viverci per sempre?""Il tempo si prende tutto, che tu lo voglia o no. Il tempo si prende tutto, lo porta via e alla fine c'è solo l'oscurità. Talvolta incontriamo altri in quell'oscurità e talvolta li perdiamo di nuovo là dentro."L'indimenticabile vicenda di Paul Edgecombe e John Coffey, narrata nel famigerato penitenziario di Cold Mountain negli anni post depressi [...]


    26. Que leitura incrível! À Espera de um Milagre foi um livro que mexeu com meus sentimentos de uma maneira muito ampla e também muito única. Me envolvi muito com esses personagens. Senti pena, compaixão, tristeza, ódio tudo!A narrativa é muito bem estruturada e a história apresenta uma série de situações que me fizeram refletir muito sobre o comportamento humano. O Stephen King consegue criar personagens cheios de camadas numa história onde o assassino não é 100% mal e o policial não [...]


    27. 5* for the Film, and 3.5* for the Book. However, I think that's largely due to the order of text consumed, rather than the film being better than the novel. The narrative itself, pertaining to both texts, is the overall winner here. Although I haven't revisited the film in a while now, it was one of my favourites. I must have seen it at least half-a-dozen times or so. I loved the relationships, the unique setting of the mile, the notions of good vs evil, and the wonderful array of characters. Th [...]


    28. This book - what shall I say about it? Steve transcends himself here. If I were asked to pick the best book ever written by Stephen King, this would be it.The horror here is all too human. The cruelty of human beings to one another - the lawmakers as well as the lawbreakers - is presented in the closed confines of the death row of a prison. The story is narrated by Paul Edgecombe, the prison warden; now in an old folks' home, awaiting the inescapable executioner - The Grim Reaper with his sickle [...]
