Genre: Fiction - drama/thriller
Rating: 5 stars
Review: To be frank, this review might not be fair because I honestly can't think of anything else to say about this book. The Green Mile, to put it simply, is an incredibly great read. It's unlike anything I have ever read before! And I've read quite a few Stephen King novels, but this seriously tops it all for me. It's far from his typical genre, which is 'horror,' but he shows here how complex and fantastic he is as a story teller. The plot line itself was so deep and meaningful, and like I already said, was so unique, creative, and original. And the characters - so memorable that I can't rave enough about them and their believable personalities.
But all those technical and literary elements aside, the best thing I could say about this book is the experience of reading it itself. Getting to know these characters, feeling for them and getting my heart broken for some.
So to sum up this semi-review, all I can say is, whether or not you "love" this book or count is as your favorite, I think you would still appreciate it. I believe any reader would. It is compelling and will reach out to you from the first chapter to the very last page. 5 stars and nothing less.
