The Green Mile was originally published in 6 serialised books. However, the version I read was a complete book version. The only thing to remember about reading it that way is to take a break between the definate book breaks. This is just to give you chance to allow the “previously in” sections to work to full affect. I have to say the device King uses to give you a refresher works remarkable well and isn’t at all a long summary of the previous book.
I loved the book as well! It makes me sad and tugs at emotions in ways than many other books just fail to achieve.Stephen King, The Green Mile
