The Green Mile

Author: Steven King
Reviewer's Age: Grade 10

The Green Mile by Steven King is a great book to read because once you pick it up, you don't want to put it down. This, as are most of King's books, is a science fiction novel with great content. Readers enjoy this novel because it is interesting to read and is full of surprises. The Green Mile is placed in the South back in 1932. It is about a man convicted of a horrible crime which he doesn't commit. John Coffey, the man accused of the horrid crime, is no ordinary man, but a man with special powers that he uses to rid people of their sicknesses. This novel is about Coffey's cell block and what goes on during his brief stay there. This fascinating novel will keep readers staying up past their bedtime to finish it.
