I STARTED READING STEPHEN KING BOOKS A FEW MONTHS AGO AND EVERY NIGHT I HAVE A KNIGHTMARE. THATS JUST HOW SCARY THEY ARE. I STARTED OFF WITH THE GREEN MILE WHICH IS THE BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ. YOU MUST READ THE BOOK BEFORE YOU WATCH THE FILM. YOU GET SO MUCH MORE FROM THE BOOK, THE FILM LOOSES MORE THAN HALF OF THE STORY. IT HAS EVERYTHING IN IT , IT MAKES YOU LAUGH, CRY, GET ANGRY AND HORRIFIED. YOU LOVE THE CHARECTERS EVAN THOUGH THEY ARE DEATH ROW INMATES, THIS IS COMPLETELY LOST IN THE FILM VERSION. AND YOU JUST WAIT TILL YOU MEET THE MOUSE YOUR HEART WILL MELT. DONT GET ME WRONG THIS IS NOT A SOPPY BOOK THE UNDERLYING STORY TO THE BOOK IS AS HORRIFYING AS USUAL FOR STEPHEN KING. BUT AS I SAID BEFORE YOU WILL FEEL EVERY EMOTION POSSIBLE WHILE READING THIS STORY. added on sorry about the captital letters my baby was sick on the keyboard and the shift key will not work. so from now on i will type in little letters untill i invest in a new keyboard. anyway to continue after finising the green mile i was desperate to get some more stephen king books and as i have just been made redundant money is a bit short at the moment. so i had a look in the local charity shops and in one of them they were selling 4 books for a pound so i picked up 16 stephen king books for just 4 pounds. i will review each of these books as i read them and i am a very avid reader so it wont take long. i am currently reading night shift which is a collection of short stories that are horrifying. a lot of them you will recognise as they have been made into films. included are the lawnmower man, childred of the corn and jerusalems lot. all the stories are unique and horrifying a real must. note - do NOT read the bogeyman if you have have a baby. i have a six month old and i had to keep prodding him all night and i had horrible nightmares. im not trying to put people off this is a great book and i highly recommend it.

I enjoyed the Green Mile, but its weird - I thought the book was so like the film it was almost identical. Great story though, isn't it? Ruth.

I would have given a better rating if you had actually reviewed all of stephen kings books instead of just one.It you update your op I will change the review if you let me know:)Also its not easy on the eyes reading capital letters all the time,hope this helps:)

Simon & Schuster Audio Stephen King Mr. Mercedes

Simon & Schuster Audio Stephen King Mr. Mercedes

In a mega-stakes, high-suspense race against time, three of the most unlikely and winning ... more

heroes Stephen King has ever created try to stop a
lone killer from blowing up thousands. In the
frigid pre-dawn hours, in a distressed Midwestern
city, hundreds of desperate unemployed folks are
lined up for a spot at a job fair. Without
warning, a lone driver plows through the crowd in
a stolen Mercedes, running over the innocent,
backing up, and charging again. Eight people are
killed; fifteen are wounded. The killer escapes.
In another part of town, months later, a retired
cop named Bill Hodges is still haunted by the
unsolved crime. When he gets a crazed letter from
someone who self-identifies as the "perk" and
threatens an even more diabolical attack, Hodges
wakes up from his depressed and vacant retirement,
hell-bent on preventing another tragedy. Brady
Hartsfield lives with his alcoholic mother in the
house where he was born. He loved the feel of
death under the wheels of the Mercedes, and he
wants that rush again. Only Bill Hodges, with a
couple of highly unlikely allies, can apprehend
the killer before he strikes again. And they have
no time to lose, because Brady's next mission, if
it succeeds, will kill or maim thousands. "Mr.
Mercedes" is a war between good and evil, from the
master of suspense whose insight into the mind of
this obsessed, insane killer is chilling and
unforgettable.
