The Green Mile Part 1 – “Two Dead Girls.”

Buy the entire series in one go, at a great price! 

My first Stephen King novel, and I’m not regretting it one bit!

Two Dead Girls is the first of a horror series- The Green Mile.
A short and interesting read, and will leave you wanting to run up to the store and by all seven sequels at once.
The story is beautifully tragic. It’s narrated by a prison worker, who’d supervised hundreds of executions by passing an electric shock through the body of the ‘walking dead’ as they called them, or those condemned to death.
The only horror books I’ve read have been the likes of “Goosebumps”, as a child ofcourse. So this is my first official thriller/horror series.

A Black man, Coffey, who is much huger than the normal human being, is taken into custody for the murder of two young, innocent girls, oblivious to their dark future.
The narrator then realizes that the convict is actually very repentant of his deeds, but now, cannot “take them back.”

One does certainly feel bad for Coffey, but what has been done, cannot be undone. A gripping, must-read for those who enjoy thrillers.

“I guess sometimes the past just catches up with you, whether you want it to, or not.” -Stephen King, Two Dead Girls.
