An intense and thrilling tale. Once I started reading this Green Mile installment, it was extremely difficult to put this story down - which ended with me going to bed way too late.

I love how Stephen King can fully engross readers in these harrowing adventures.

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: After literally throwing down book #4 in the story, I was so ready to get my hands on the next portion of the book. 'Night Journey' did not disappoint and you start to truly see the full circle of the story. I'm actually quite sad that I'm now onto the last portion of the book.

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.

Wow… Coffey is amazing. He is truly amazing.
And he is innocent. He has to be!

This part gave me a bit of a chuckle! Still amazed that John can heal people and putting doubt into our minds if he did actually kill those girls or did someone else do it? Great 5th book.
