I hadn't tried Stephen King earlier due to the belief that his genre is mainly Horror/ Supernatural themes. Although I liked his adaptations into movies like The Shawshank Redemption and The Green Mile, had never thought of trying his work.

Finally I started the The Green Mile series and they were very good. His writing is so precise with the element of suspense held genuinely. Even with the overall story already known, the tension travels with you all along.

I am not sure if I will try another one of his, but this one's a very interesting read!

Type of read: Weekend/Lunch time read.

What made me pick it up: King is a favorite of mine and at a recent visit to our McKay's Bookstore I found the entire 'The Green Mile' series in all of its beautiful short story glory.

Overall rating: The absolute perfect ending to 'The Green Mile' story. I'm so happy that I took in this book in its original short story publications. Even though I didn't have to wait for the next in the series to be published (usually only having to wait from finishing one installment on lunch to starting the next that evening after supper) it definitely added to the suspense and flow of the book overall. I would absolutely recommend 'The Green Mile' and would without hesitation recommend each story individually as it was written and intended to be taken in.

Reader's Note: I also fully admit, I know I'm biased when it comes to books by Stephen King, they have been and always will be a favorite of mine. They are one of the first authors I look for when we go to bookstores and I absolutely love the fact that many of their books can perfectly fit on my person (either in my pocket, purse, or backpack) for everyday and extended travel.

5 ⭐️’s

(This is on- spoiler-y, I only mention broader things that have happened).


Wow. This was quite an experience!

I think i’ll review all six books and my overall thoughts here as it’s the last book.

So, the first three books were really uneventful for me. The only thing I really found interesting was the ending of book 3. There was just so much description, just not enough action. That was sad. If it was the just the three books rated on their own, I would probably have given it a 3 ⭐️ rating. But, theres more…

But… today, (30 Jan 2022) I binge-read the last three books. What a roller coaster today has been.
We got Coffey doing some really amazing stuff in the fourth and fifth book. The third book was a tear jerker that’s for sure. I loved Delacroix so much and I hated to see him go. Book five, that was amazing. Theres a lot at the end of book five about Coffey and his victims, if you get what i’m talking about.
Book six… oh my gosh. Brought me to tears. Literally. The decisions, the ending, Coffey… oh my god, I cant—. It broke me.

My disappointment at the no action or eventful things in the first three books was killed when I read the last book. It made up for anything I hated.


I really loved Coffey and Paul and Dean and Harry and Delacroix. Mr Jingles, he was amazing. Jan and Elaine were sweet, and the characters were so amazing and diverse and that really is part of what kept me reading. I hated the characters of Percy and ‘Billy the Kid’ I hated, naturally, as was (most likely) intended to be the case.

Stephen King has written such a masterpiece with this Series of books. This was my first foray into the world of thrillers and Stephen King, and I will be reading more of his books in the future. (I think “The Talisman’ will be a great next read.)

Overall, outstanding!
