The Green Mile is written in the first-person narration of a man named Paul Edgecomb, he supervises the prison guards at the Cold Mountain Penitentiary. In the book, Paul Edgecomb describes the year John Coffey came to E block, and how it changed him. The story takes place in 1932 in E block of the Cold Mountain Penitentiary–home of the coldest killers. This book is a mystery/crime fiction book, and the King conveys the message that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Stephen King is well-known for a plethora of his other works such as The Stand, It, The Shining, Cujo, Carrie, and more. He is an astounding author not only because of the appeal of his books, but the “truth inside the lie”. If you haven’t read a King novel yet I suggest to start with this one. The Green Mile will change how you see the world.
