25 When John Coffey was brought to E Block, what did he ask after Paul asked him if he had any questions?
Answer: If they left a light on at night

In his cell, John Coffey was read the typical new prisoner drill by Paul. Paul asked if he had any questions, and John asked if they left a light on after bedtime, because he was sometimes scared of the dark in a strange place. Paul replied that they did have lights on at night, but everyone thought it was a rather strange question from a convicted murderer. When John was to be executed, he didn't want the hood over his face because he was scared of the dark.
