“Paul Edgecombe has been suffering with a bladder infection for some time that hasn't cleared. It is in this book that Paul discovers that John Coffey can heal with his touch. Eduard Delacroix has been teaching Mr. Jingles tricks and is quite attached to the mouse--almost as much as guard Percy Wetmore despises it.This is the most interesting book i have read.
“Well the main thing about this book is that it is about a man who works as a prison guard and has work with the prisoners and yeah ti is a good book. It is a little wired thought like most of Stephen King books. ”Kevin J wrote this review Monday, January 31, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“The Green Mile has seen it's fair share of prisoners, but none anything like John Coffey. The mentally retarded giant of a man, accused of murdering two girls, has his own godlike power, as Paul Edgecombe comes to learn. What is the mysterious power that Coffey holds within his being, and is it great enough to stop him from walking the Green Mile? The third of the Green Mile serials, Stephen King begins to delve deeper and deeper into the feelings of Paul Edgecombe and John Coffey, and the kind of awe and amazement that can only come from miracles.”Chris L wrote this review Monday, November 2, 2009.

“The third book in a series by Stephen King. The Green Mile is a serial thriller that takes place on “Cell block E” otherwise known as death row. The prisoners in Cell block E are not optimistic and neither are the guards with the arrival of Billy “the kid” Wharton. The story is told from the point of view of Paul Edgecombe, the head honcho on death row, who worries constantly about the circumstances he deals with everyday. Another prisoner, John Coffey seems to be quite mystical and frankly Paul doesn’t know what to think of him.
This story is filled with classic Stephen King mid games and is a good edition to the series. Thus far we have learned a lot about the guards and the prisoners, while the plot slowly develops. There are points in which it gets boring, but there are other times in which I was not able to put the book down. The nature of the story becomes increasingly intriguing as you read further down into The Green Mile.
