If Sean Penn read this book before walking his last "mile" in Dead Man Walking, he wouldn't have been so brave! Of course, Stephen King ain't exactly Susan Sarandon, either!!
The reader not only is walking with Eduard Delacroix as he approaches his fate, he IS Delacroix. The smells are pungent, the sight is vivid, and the end is horrific.
More questions arise, however. What about the mysterious powers of John Coffey? Or the secret plan of the guards? Well, it just so happens...DARN! Have to wait for the next installment to come out for those answers

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Obviously, by the title, prison inmate Eduard Delacroix is electrocuted in this book. Unfortunately, it's at the hand of Percy Wetmore, the prison guard who's been bullying Eduard from the beginning. He's the one who sabotages the execution, giving Eduard a painfully long-drawn-out death. This scene is rather gruesome and will remind readers that this is still Stephen King writing, even though The Green Mile isn't King's usual horror fare.
While Eduard dies, though, Mr. Jingles is "resurrected" by John Coffey, after Percy had stepped on him in the previous book, "Coffey's Hands." Like the sudden endings in most of these books, this one has another good cliffhanger, in regards to Coffey's innocence. These sudden endings can be aggravating, but they were a very good marketing technique at the time of publishing--to keep the loyal reader addicted for the next installment, especially for the following two: "Night Journey" (#5) and "Coffey on the Mile" (#6). However, since the complete serial novel has since been published, I'd recommend getting that one instead.

The Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix The time has come for Eduard Delacroix, a murder convict at Louisiana's Cold Mountain Penitentiary. He is also on the "E" block, also called the Green Mile.He has a pet mouse named Mr. Jingles. Delacroix trains the mouse to retrieve a spool when he throws it, and the mouse becomes quite good at it. The mouse is left with Paul, the boss, when Delacroix is executed. He is on death row for murder, and is to be executed soon. He is a fairly small cajun man, and speaks a lot of French. The Green Mile is the home of many disturbed people, and all of them owe a death. The Green Mile gets its name from the green tiles used on the floor. Del has a good attitude, and develops good relationships with most of the workers, except for Percy. Percy is mean and dislikes Del. Percy, being the head of Delacroix's execution, things could go badly wrong. As Toot Toot, the janitor, says, "I'm fryin now! I'm a done Tom turkey!" I highly recommend this book because it is very descriptive and powerful. Stephen King tells a great story.

The most nerve-wracking experience of my life! The moment when Paul realizes what Percy was up to . . . absoulutely frightening! I could feel the electricity going through my own body not to mention some intense pain behind my eyeballs! What's up with "John Coffey's Hands"? Did they really kill two innocent girls? How can someone so simple and gentle be rapist/murderer? Can't wait to find out

As the series keep floating along, as does the tension in the room where I read these books. This time Percy, the wicked guard, goes a little too far. Probably even farther than he ever thought he could get away with. John Coffey still remains in the prison, and his guilt is beginning to be questioned by the guards. Could someone so gentle kill so easily

The story line in the first three of the series was good. I quit reading them until they all come out.
I like to be able to finish a book when I start it.
Also the totol cost is excessive. Approx $2.50 per 100 pages. That makes it $15.oo per complete novel for a paperback.
If he does another, it will be the first King book I will have not read.

Poor Del. That was the most vivid torture sequence I have ever read. I felt like I was right there watching the whole thing. Made me feel sorry for Del, despite what he had done to be there in the first place. Well, at least Percy will be out of the picture soon.
