This is the first Stephen King novel I've ever read. I don't care for horror and supernatural stories, but this particular story I felt needed to be read, not for the supernatural tale, but for the human experience.
In the 6 sections of the serial novel that comprises the paperback, King develops the story of John Coffey, who is sent to death row, which is also called "The Green Mile", for the rape and murders of twin girls. However, Paul Edgecombe, security guard, doesn't believe that this man, who's afraid of the dark, could have committed such a terrible crime. Intertwined within this story are subplots that include, Percy Wetmore, Eduard Delacroix, and William 'Billy The Kid' Wharton, and of course Mr. Jingles.
The movie is approximately 3 hours long, and it was worth every minute. I read the book in 2 days, and that's a record for me, and it was also worth every minute.
King has produced a profoundly moving story and I assure you, the last fifty pages of this book will be read through tear-filled eyes.
The characters and story are memorable; the lessons and messages are clear.
I absolutely loved this book...I think you will too! (Let's all hope Hollywood does a good job with it) Most highly recommended!
What I liked about the book is that Stephen King was able to humanize everyone. In spite of being Death Row inmates, one can almost feel a sympathy for these men, except for Wild Bill Wharton, of course. John Coffey's tears, Delacroix's friendship with a stray mouse -- it was an interesting contrast to our popular perceptions of 'hardened criminals.' Also, the interactions between the 'guilty' men on the inside and the 'innocent' men on the outside make you think about who is more capable of evil (study Percy Whetmore).
I agreed with one reviewer that, in collapsing the series into one novel, there was some unnecessary repetition at the beginning of each segment. Aside from that, I had very few problems with the book, and I cried when I finished reading it. Not the reaction I expected to have upon arriving at the end of a Stephen King novel. But, I leave you to judge for yourself. Also, go see the movie -- it is equally beautiful, and brings the characters (specifically John Coffey and Percy Whetmore) to life in a way that you can't get from reading the book. If anything, watch it for Mr. Jingles.
