Just finished the Green Mile series by Stephen King and absolutely loved them, as I do with most of Stephen King's work but I found the movie quite cheesy and lame in comparison. The books really pulled at the heart strings, the movie didn't quite connect to the viewer as much as the books did. But, not overly surprising.
I'm currently reading The Tome of Hercules by Andy McDermott but only halfway through. I have enjoyed it so far, though I find the action scenes a little drawn out. They'd be great for a movie but for a book...just a little too long winded for my taste.
