Stephen King's iconic horror masterpiece. An international bestselling and highly acclaimed novel, a must-read for any horror fan, also a hugely successful film starring Tom Hanks.

The Green Mile: those who walk it do not return, because at the end of that walk is the room in which sits Cold Mountain penitentiary's electric chair. In 1932 the newest resident on death row is John Coffey, a giant black man convicted of the brutal murder of two little girls. But nothing is as it seems with John Coffey, and around him unfolds a bizarre and horrifying story.

Evil murderer or holy innocent - whichever he is - Coffey has strange powers which may yet offer salvation to others, even if they can do nothing to save him.

Readers are reading The Green Mile through their fingers:

'This is King at the top of his game. It's the perfect length with all six parts, it ends well, and he doesn't rely on horror or too much salty language to tell a fantastic story . . . Seriously, this is my favourite book I've read from him. Go read it if you haven't already' Goodreads reviewer,

'Shocking, poignant, thought-provoking. A great story that will transport you into the story and make you feel the characters' pain and agony. Well-written, wonderful characters, compassionate storyline. Stephen King is at his peak here' Goodreads reviewer,

'This particular book gave me rather noticeable palpitations and for a moment or two, it made me feel quite faint . . . I very much doubt that I'll be able to forget this book for the years ahead of me' Goodreads reviewer,
