The Green Mile – Stephen King

USA in den 1930er Jahren. Im Todestrakt eines Gefängnisses, der sogenannten grünen Meile, wird ein besonderer Mann eingeliefert. Groß und stark wie ein Hühne betritt John Coffey seinen letzten Wohnort, nachdem er zwei kleine Mädchen vergewaltigt und ermordet hat. Doch was steckt hinter diesem schwarzen Riesen, der schon im ersten Gespräch mit dem erzählenden Protagonisten Paul Edgecombe fragt, ob nachts das Licht brennen bleibt? Und warum geschehen kleine Wunder, seitdem er auf sein Treffen mit Old Sparky, dem elektrischen Stuhl den Gang hinunter, wartet?

Geschildert wird die Geschichte des letzten Jahres von John Coffey, aber auch von allen anderen Insassen, die während dieser Zeit die grüne Meile besuchen mussten. Erzählt wird dies aus der Sicht von Paul Edgecombe, dem Leiter des Todestraktes, der im Altenheim rückblickend diese Geschichte aufschreibt. So unglaublich sie ihm immer noch erscheint, er muss sie niederschreiben, damit sie nicht verloren geht.

Sehr ruhig und gefühlvoll wird dieses harte Thema behandelt, wenn es auch drastische Szene gibt, die schwachen Mägen nicht guttun dürften. Zu Beginn in diesem sechsteiligen Fortsetzungsroman spielt Coffey noch eine eher hintergründige Rolle. Es ist zwar von Anfang an klar, dass seine unglaubliche Geschichte erzählt wird, doch erfährt der Leser vorerst nur sehr wenig davon. Vielmehr wird in den Alltag des Todestraktes geblickt und die verschiedenen handelnden Charaktere ausgebaut und beleuchtet.

Nach und nach rückt Coffeys Geschichte aber immer mehr in den Vordergrund. Edgecombe kann nicht glauben, dass der sanfte Riese, mit dem man fast nur Mitleid haben kann, zu solchen Taten fähig sein soll. Er forscht auf eigene Faust nach, doch alle Beweise scheinen gegen John zu sprechen.

King entwickelt den Handlungsbogen langsam aber intensiv. Er schafft einzigartige Charaktere, vom lammfrommen Kindermörder John Coffey bis zum sadistischen Wärter Percy Wetmore. Obwohl man als Leser bereits recht zu Beginn erfährt, dass Coffey sterben wird, fiebert man doch mit Edgecombes Bemühungen gegen ein rassistisches System, das nicht zu knacken scheint. Man ist in dieser gut durchdachten Geschichte emotional derart gefangen, dass einem zum Schluss nach dem Zuklappen nur verqollene Augen und ein dicker Kloß im Hals bleibt, zudem aber auch ein warmes Gefühl, dass selbst an einem der härtesten Plätze der Erde irgendwo noch Menschlichkeit und Wunder zu finden sind.

Als Leser des kompletten Bandes sollte man wissen, dass die sechs Teile damals einzeln erschienen sind und es demnach zu Beginn jeden neuen Abschnittes eine Einleitung zu lesen gibt, die den Leser wieder in die Geschichte hineinführt.

Für mich ist “The Green Mile” eines der wirklichen Meisterwerke von King. Ein Roman voller Emotion, Grausamkeit, aber auch Menschlichkeit. Eine Geschichte von Wundern, von zahmen Riesen und schrecklichen Hinrichtungen. Einfach eine wirkliche große und epische Geschichte.

    Everytime I think I’ve plumbed the depths of right wing ignorance, something comes along, to wit, the bill about applying “religious sectarian” law (whatever that is) to repeal Karma – to show me that No, we haven’t hit bottom yet. I’d love to sit down with the author(s) of the bill, to try an explain to them the relationship between their dreaded notion of Karma and the better known (to them) Golden Rule.The link to “Organized operatives paid by Freedom Works” doesn’t work – article was probably pulled.

    Review by Fairydustbunny for Rating: Worked first time with my iPhone 3G, PS3 and laptop. I use them at work with my iPhone. Sound quality is fine. Equal to my far more expensive wired pair. I walked all over the open plan office with the iPhone on the desk and did not lose connection. A range of over 30ft. Comfy enough to wear for several hours and has easily withstood being in my handbag for three weeks (which means they must be tough). Highly recommended for the price.

    I have realized that in unwanted cameras, unique sensors help to focus automatically. The particular sensors associated with some camcorders change in contrast, while others utilize a beam of infra-red (IR) light, specially in low lighting. Higher standards cameras sometimes use a mix of both models and likely have Face Priority AF where the digital camera can See’ your face while keeping focused only on that. Many thanks for sharing your thinking on this web site.

    Según el relato de Platón, la Atlantida era una isla continente formada por círculos concentrícos, uno de agua, uno de tierra, otro de agua, otro de tierra, y así. Eso de la imagen es cuadrado y ni siquiera muestra elevación de terreno. Platón se invento la Atlántida para hablar de religión, política y filosofía, del mismo modo que se invento la cueva y las sombras para hablar del hombre y de filosofía. La Atlántida es un cuento, nunca existió salvo en la imaginación de Platón.

    white athletes don’t need drugs to compete with non-blacks. they blow away non-blacks.the athletic difference between whites and non-blacks is at least as big as the difference between blacks and whites.the difference is so big that you could take all of the best non-blacks in the world at any particular sport, put them on one team, and put a random collection of world class whites on the other team, and the white team would win easily.

    Does no one notice how the tone of the manifesto completely changes part way through, as soon as he starts discussing gun control? It reads like it was written by a completely different person than the first sections. His manifesto was clearly edited, and I wouldn't doubt it to be partially fabricated to make him look even worse.
