The Green Mile, Part 5: Night Journey Reviews

  • jb Byrkit

    Wow what a story! Part five is maybe my favorite book in the six book series right now. Paul continues the story with John Coffey and his healing powers. He sneaks John out of the prison (with help) to see If he can heal Hal’s wife. It most certainly is worth the gamble for Paul and his coworkers.

    And Percy gets stuck in a straight jacket in the cool off room. Man that is great! Percy is such a prick!

    Now the question is do they make it back in time?

    Somewhere in here, life got the upper hand and by the time I strolled once more past that bat tree I was able to buy both the 3rd and 4th booklet in this series and the clerk at the store informed me that the 5th was expected any day. I was on the cusp of a long weekend with a veritable feast in front of me.

    And so I ate; ramming it in, taking huge gulps at a time, as Paul Edgecombe suffered through the worst urinary infection of his life,

    Somewhere in here, life got the upper hand and by the time I strolled once more past that bat tree I was able to buy both the 3rd and 4th booklet in this series and the clerk at the store informed me that the 5th was expected any day. I was on the cusp of a long weekend with a veritable feast in front of me.

    And so I ate; ramming it in, taking huge gulps at a time, as Paul Edgecombe suffered through the worst urinary infection of his life,

    when he put himself too close to John Coffey’s magic hands.

    Wild Bill Wharton goes to the back room, the one with the soft walls and we meet Melinda Moore, the warden’s wife. It is the characters here, on King’s Green Mile that bring life to the pages, even Mr, Jingles, mouse extraordinaire; all of them so finely painted, so accessible.

    And honestly, if King is able to so shake me with emotion over, well, vermin, what other power lay in this man’s hands.

    And then Eduard Delacroix walks the green mile and once again Percy Wetmore stains the page and we the reader learn just how bad things can get on the mile. Can any good come of this?

    Thankfully the clerk was right, because when I walked past the bats the following day, book 5 was waiting for me.

    And so I ate some more, having my lunch with the other guards at Paul Edgecome’s house and listened as he outlined his insane plan, the one that resulted in a journey, late at night, a plan that was fraught with peril and put everybody’s livelihood at risk.

    Still, we all went along. only this time Percy Wetmore was surrounded by soft walls, and John Coffey could not take his eyes off the night sky, as our journey began.

    Coming back was different, we were all stunned sure, but Coffey was suffering real bad from his own part in the nights adventures, we all were, except nowhere near like this humble, mountain of a man, about whose huge neck hung Melinda Moore’s fine link chain, with the silver St. Christopher medallion.

    And so I waited for August, as did, countless others.

    Still excellent, but this time quite subversive in a christian way. :)

    Do a good turn for the Warden? Well, playing Jesus usually doesn't come with bugs, so that's delightfully gross. :) Lots of action this time, and we're reaching the crescendo of the Green Mile novellas.

    It's taking a near super-human effort to keep myself from just going ahead and reading through. How did the ancient peoples over a century ago ever stand it? Serials are a thing of the devil.

    This climactic fifth installment of

    is a culmination of the plot building presented in the previous installments and, thus, is filled with page-turning action. Like the previous installments, King leaves the reader with a dangling story line that must have made his readers in 1996 quite impatient to have to wait a month to find out what happened next. Thankfully, I just have to turn the page.

    Really love reading this in a series,

    I can't say this enough, I am SO glad I am reading this serial style & building the suspense up with each section!!

    This was actually one of the most interesting and captivating books that I have read from Stephen King & I highly recommend it for any King fans.

    This was actually one of the most interesting and captivating books that I have read from Stephen King & I highly recommend it for any King fans.

    I ended up getting this book from a thrift store and normally following the rules of serial books I was only able to get the last three books for the first three were nowhere in sight. As a result I started off reading "The Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix" first and I was caught up in the story, knowing the one main aspect of the book and yet not knowing how it would end. Due to life events I was only able to get to "Night Journey". And then I was able to start over this time from the beginning and actually read the whole series.

    The characters like most of King's older books are easy to get along with and have a very well-defined personality even with some of the minor characters. You are given a chance to enter a realistic world with very realistic people whether they are inmate, prison guards or the civilians who back up their men within this world.

    The best part of this book is the fact that it isn't really a horror story as King is well-known for but an emotional story of the paranormal with some horror elements thrown in. Whether you are enjoying the whole novel put together or the serial novel format this will be one book you cannot and will not want to put down for the ending is just like King - unexpected.

    This part gave me a bit of a chuckle! Still amazed that John can heal people and putting doubt into our minds if he did actually kill those girls or did someone else do it? Great 5th book.

    I am surprised by how much I have been enjoying reading The Green Mile in its original serialised format - and a little miffed at myself for putting it off for so many years.

    Paul, Coffey, and even Brutal, have been wonderful characters to pass an hour with, and as much as I have enjoyed reading this book, I am a little sad that my time on the mile is ending. Must remember to have tissues on standby for the last part.
