I wish I had known there were books before I watched the movie years ago, Knowing the outcome ruins it a little bit for you, but I still give it 5 stars. The book gives you more time to fall in love with the characters all over again. ( )

I have read many King books and this series was one of my favourite. The story was great, and the characters wonderful. Most of all I loved the anticipation of waiting for the next part to come out. Now that was so much fun but at the same time agonizing waiting to read what happened next :) No regrets though, I am happy I read this before the single book was published. I also watched the movie and it was very true to form and I was not disappointed as I usually am when I watch a movie after I have read a book. ( )

Not a whole lot happens in this section except for exposition: you learn of John Coffey’s crime, brutally murdering and raping two young sisters, and you get to know the narrator (Paul) and some of his coworkers. One thing I noticed was that Coffey’s guilt is just assumed without much in the way of evidence. This big black man is found holding the two corpses and sobbing away, and everybody figures he must have been the one who killed them. “I couldn’t help it” could have multiple meanings, especially since he didn’t elaborate. But I guess being a black man in 1930s Louisiana was crime enough for these folks. Anyway, it was a fine enough start, though if I didn’t already have the rest of the series I probably wouldn’t have been interested enough to continue. ( )
