Have you ever read a book and been so affected by it that it moved you to tears? I just finished reading The Green Mile by Stephen King and I sat there tearing every few pages or so. It's incredible - the emotion, the feelings... Just the starkness of what's presented. It's a prison story, but moves beyond that, touching on naked human sensibilities, on basic human emotions. Ugh. I am really bad at reviews.
What I can talk about, however, is the emotions that the books caused ...more

I was born and raised in Southern California. I lived in the same house for 13 years, until my parents went bankrupt and moved to (oddly enough) a much more expensive neighborhood in Colton. Basically I went from the ghetto to Upper-middle class in a single move, and only because my parents went into default on... well, on everything. By ...more
Oh, come mi sbagliavo.

"'I'm rightly tired of the pain I hear and feel, boss. I'm tired of bein on the road, lonely as a robin in the rain. Not never havin no buddy to go on with or tell me where we's comin from or goin to or why. I'm tired of people bein ugly to each other. It feels like pieces of glass in my head. I'm tired of all the times I've wanted to help and couldn't. I'm tired of bein in the dark. Mostly it's the pain. There's too much. If I could end it, I would. But I cain't.'" -John Coffe ...more

I thought this Depression era tale of life on death row, somewhere in the Deep South, started slowly and it took me quite a long time to grow familiar with the characters on the Green Mile, as it was known. It’s a long book, so that’s not so much of an issue (unless I’d given up on it, of course), and once I was comfortable with the cast I was quickly sucked in to the atmosphere of it all. It’s a good story, a very good story. And it’s well ...more

Ova knjiga mora dobiti svih 5 zvjezdica,jer je ovo umjetnost kao što sam rekao.I,ova je knjiga predobra da bi dobila manje!
Simpatični glavni likovi,jako simpatični sporedni likovi i odvratni zlikovac i jako jako tužan kraj.
Izvodio bih i film sa Tom Hanksom iz '90-tih . Odgledao sam ga 4 do 5 puta.
Mnogo se može reći o ovom MAESTRALNOM djelu,ali ja to neću.
Samo pročitajte knjigu...
