The Green Mile • Stephen King

 Considering my last review was so positive, I decided it was time to restore my critical equilibrium - taking into an account I'm a fairly negative and cynical reader, I need to darken my image. Bring in The Green Mile!

Stephen King is an exceptional writer, and without a doubt my favourite contemporary horror author of all time. The Stand is a masterpiece. The Shining is the only book which pierced my imagination with such intensity I genuinely had hallucinations after reading. More on that later.

However, there seem to be a few novels by Stephen King which don't seem to reach the bar he had set for himself. The Green Mile, unfortunately, is one of them...
