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

All of the characters (including Mr. Jingles) are so well drawn that you feel like you are experiencing their lives and feelings right along with them in Cold Mountain State Penitentiary-1932.

El relato de Paul Edgecom, jefe del pasillo de la muerte o milla verde de la penitenciaria de Cold Mountain, me ha encogido el corazón. Me he emocionado con el grandullón Coffey, he sentido pena por Delacroix, rabia con el carcelero Percy, ternura con el ratón Cascabel y mucha mucha impotencia.
Ha habido muchos pasajes del libro en los que lo he pasado realmente fatal, ¡qué sufrimiento!
Es un libro que te hace refl ...more

A narrativa é muito bem estruturada e a história apresenta uma série de situações que me fizeram refletir muito sobre o comportamento humano. O Stephen King consegue criar personagens cheios de camadas numa história onde o assassino não é 100% mal e o policial não é 100% bom. ...more
Stephen King has done a lot of scaring through his books but never has he broken my heart like he did with The Green Mile.
Even though there were elements of horror, after all, we had an electric chair called 'Old Sparky', this novel felt more like a tale of fantasy at times. I'm sure most people have seen the movie version and in this case it was very true to the book. Still, this poignant piece of horror classic will go down as one of my favorites. This book was flawless an ...more
"'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

The horror here is all too human. The cruelty of human beings to one another - the lawmakers as well as the lawbreakers - is presented in the closed confines of the death row of a prison.

L'indimenticabile vicenda di Paul Edgecombe e John Coffey, narrata nel famigerato penitenziario di Cold Mountain negli anni post depressione, non perde di fascino a dieci anni dalla prima lettura e mi costringe, ancora una volta, a riprovare emozioni intense che solo un bel libro sa offrire.
Circondati da una persistente atmosfera di indifferenza e scarsa sensibilità, "il miglio ...more

"DIFFERENT SEASONS" ثم قرأت له مجموعة قصصية
وهي مجموعة "روايات" ذات بعد درامي أساسا وكذلك حال هذه الرواية والتي صدرت شهريا على ستة أجزاء سنة 1996.
الحبكة ممتعة في مجملها و العلاقات الانسانية بين الشخصيات هي أروع ما فيها
والحديث هنا خاصة عن العلاقة بين منفذي أحكام الاعدام و المحكوم عليهم.أكثر ما أبدع فيه الكاتب هو تصويره للشيخوخة على أنها انتظار للجلوس على الكرسي الكهربائي.
