Set on death row in mid-20th century America, 'The Green Mile' deals with what's right, and what's evil, without giving any answers and while developing an amazing plot to boot. I'm not all that articulate tonight, but this is definitely recommended.

Sent to Weebly today, for her other half's TBR-pile!

Thanks Weebly. As you know I loved the film, so I'm interested in how good the book will be - can't wait ;o)

Apoligies for the delay, but I've just started this (and already it evokes memories and scenes from the film, which I loved).

What a fantastic book! Now I love both the film (which I saw first), and the book ;o)

No doubt aided by having seen the film, I could easily visualise a lot of the characters/situations in the book. Somehow it made it easier to visualise Tom Hanks as Paul Edgecomb and Michael Clarke Duncan as John Coffey

There are a lot of things in the book which I don't remember from the book, so I don't know whether it's because it's a long time since I saw the film, or because the book is quite different (as is often the case). I suspect though that it's a combination of the two ;o)

I remember thinking that particular scenes in the film were very graphic, but somehow the book surpassed that, and made it even more graphic ;os

This is my first Stephen King book (I think), though I have The Shining on Mt Toobie (and, believe it or not, I've not seen the film!).

And I have to admit that MuppetSpike made me send this 'back' to loopy1, when of course it should have gone back to Weebly.

*ahem*.

The book arrived safely with me this morning, following a flurry of messages from Spike who was convinced it was meant to be coming to me!

I'll reunite it with Weebly as soon as I get the chance. It was nice to hear from Spike, anyway :-)

The book has returned - Wales to Northants via Kent! But it came with s lovely birthday card, pad and pen and Christmas Card - many thanks Loopy. I am busy collecting books which need to return to you too so in the new year watch the post box.
