With only a few elements of the supernatural in his book, much like Dolores Claiborne, King writes a masterful peace outside of his normal thriller/horror genre and the Dark Tower genre. I must admit, he was quite successful with portraying the anguish experience by Edgecombe and his growing knowledge of John Coffey. At first I begrudged the metastory of writing the book in a nursing home but final segment with Mr. Jingles justified it in my mind. He even managed to keep the foreshadowing to a minimum and vague most of the time despite the jump in the story's chronology at certain points.
