A Path Down the Green Mile...

Happy Book to Movie Tuesday, Bookworms!

This Tuesday I am introducing you to The Green Mile. I have never read The Green Mile novel, which is written by Stephen King. If you're a King fan then chances are you have read it. What is your take on the book? Drop us a comment in the box below!

Stepping away from the book, I have definitely seen The Green Mile movie (adapted from King's 1996 novel). It is without a doubt an amazing movie. If you haven't seen it I suggest watching it at least once in your life. The movie is a little on the long side, so make sure you have time to watch it first.

While there are possibly many well known actors in the movie to some people the one that stood out to me was Tom Hanks. The movie was released in 1999. It is definitely an older movie but one worth watching. Word of caution, if you can't handle movies that tug at your heart strings then you might want to wait until you are prepared for The Green Mile. It is a drama that will stay with you even if just a little.
