The Green Mile

This may be the best of the best Stephen King has to offer. More humane than most of his books, the reader learns to love this "murderer". P.S. I hate...more

The Haunting of Hill House
3.91
My first horror read, I first read THOHH as a Reader's Digest Condensed Version. I was 12 and scared to DEATH. Still is a timeless classic.
