Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons by Stephen KingPrison aint no fairy tales.
Almost everything that could be possibly said about it has been said. What makes this book different is the message it conveys - one of eternal hope. I was and am profoundly moved by this simple and eloquent depiction of hope, friendship, and redemption.
The story begins with the trial of a young banker, Andy Dufresne, victimized by circumstantial evidence, resulting in a conviction for the murder of his wife and her lover. After a quick conviction, Andy finds himself serving a life sentence at Shawshank prison, with no hope of parole.
Stephen King is one of the most enchanting storytellers of our time, and perhaps, the only one alive. His prose is equally enchanting, wonderful, and mesmerizing. It was a sheer delight to read him. And, by the way, it was my first Stephen King novel. All in all this is a great story vividly told that will leave you with a true sense of redemption in your soul. It is a riveting tale about friendship and the strength of character, about going up against what is wrong and unfair and coming out on top through pure true grit and a little luck, that will leave you in utter amazement!
It is such a moving tale that you just cant help but love it.

Prison drama The Shawshank Redemption has been hailed by movie buffs as the greatest film to miss out on a best picture Oscar. The much-loved movie - starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman - was nominated for the Academy Awards but missed out on the prize to Forrest Gump. It was ranked the greatest film to slip through the net in a survey to launch a new dedicated Sky Movies Oscars HD channel. Shawshank was followed in the list by The Green Mile , which was made by the same director, Frank Darabont. Both films were based on stories by novelist Stephen King.
