The Green Mile The name of the book that I read is, The Green Mile. The Green Mile comes in either the series or one big book. There are six books in the series. The names Is 1. The Two Dead Girls. 2. The Mouse on the Mile. 3. Coffey's Hands. 4. The Bad Death of Eduard Delacroix. 5. Night Journey. 6. Coffey on the Mile. The book is written by Stephen King. The book has 536 pages in it. The Green Mile was published by Pockets Books. The main characters in this story Paul Edgecombe, John Coffey, William Wharton, Eduard Delacroix, Brutus Howell, Dean Stanton, Harry Terwilliger, and Percy Wetmore. There are many other characters, but they aren't quite as important to the story and aren't mentioned as often. Paul Edgecombe is in charge of all the inmates in the E Block. The author never really says what Paul looks like. John Coffey is a huge black man. He is about six foot eight, and was broad in the shoulders and in the chest, there was muscle everywhere on his body. William Wharton is crazy. He calls himself Billy the Kid. Billy the Kid was an outlaw who broke every law imaginable, and was a psycho. He is sort of skinny and he has brownish colored hair. He tries to kill Dean Stanton with a chain. Eduard Delacroix is a short, half-bald, Frenchman, who has a "pet" mouse. Del teaches the mouse to do tricks and things. Brutus Howell, who was nicknamed Brutal, but wouldn't hurt anything unless he had to, is a bigger man too. He isn't really stupid, he just can't spell worth two cents. Dean Stanton and Harry Terwilliger work with Paul, but aren't really a main characters, but they helps Paul take John to Melinda Moores, who is sick with brain cancer, and they are mentioned quite a bit throughout the story. Percy Wetmore also works with Paul and everyone else. No one likes him because he is mean, ugly, and stupid. He would always yell out stupid things at inappropriate times. The setting takes place in a state penitentiary called Cold Mountain. The story also takes place in Paul's home and at the Moores' home. The setting is essential to the story because of the weather that seems to play a part in the surroundings of the penitentiary. One outstanding feature of the setting is that it's in a state penitentiary.
