Green Mile, and the rest of the books

It seems that the "Green Mile" was the separate work from all the other books that Stephen King has written. I mean, there were a lot of books filled with some dirt, like "Rage." There were just scary works - the first part of "The Children of the Corn" was quite scary to watch (I'm not sure if he wrote the book, I just know that he wrote the script for that movie). Still, the sentiment and depth of the "Green Mile," that compassion that it develops, and even plot itself - what has driven him to write something THAT much different from the rest of the books? No idea, but 5 stars for that book and the movie based on it.

The Children of the Corn was a short story by King. The Shawshank Redemption was also based on a King short story. The movie Stand By Me is also based on a King short story. He doesn't always write horror.

I think that all of Stephen King's Books are meant to make the reader think. I mean I haven't watch Children of the Corn, but when I think about books I've read by King they have all made me think about something on a deep level. His books are full of subtle psychological triggers that play with the readers mind. Have you read 'The Stand'? That one is scary, but pretty deep too. I love King's 'Green Mile'. I watched the movie when I was young and read the book when I got older. It's one of the few movies that actually lives up to the book it's based on.
