This was an eye opener, especially, in view of its characters, you never know what is going to happen next. There are a lot of Ah ha moments here with sinister surprises. It causes, at least this reader's, sense of, they just did not go there and wtf! I would recommend this book for anyone who watches the show, giving one more information into who the Governor actually was before meeting up with Rick and the gang at the prison.
However, Governor goes on the basis of the character in the graphic This was an eye opener, especially, in view of its characters, you never know what is going to happen next. However, Governor goes on the basis of the character in the graphic novel not the version of the character on the show. I look forward to reading the next book, "The Road to Woodbury". You just can't put this one down.

I was hoping that this book would tell more about his background and what was going on at the time that everyone "turned" but it was set at about two weeks out and didn't give any more past details of who he really was, and in case you haven't read it SPOILER he wasn't even who he really was, but pretending to be his own brother. So the whole character seemed a little weak and not someone you would even halfway hope to lead people, even as a bad guy. The character of The Governor was much more believable than the character in the book.
The scenes or events that occur in the book SPOILER are not at all what was in the show, which I guess was one thing that made me even want to finish it to see what would happen. Also, the rest of the characters, with the exception of maybe three or so, don't even have the same names.
I didn't like the way in which the Governor was killed in the book. I thought it lacked imagination and was easy and also made him look weak. Much less glorified death than on the show. I know that when I read a horror novel, there is going to be killing, possibly torture of some sort, language, and other atrocities. The show The Walking Dead is really not that bad, because it is censored for television. The book on the other hand is not censored. I would not recommend anyone that is under 18 reading.
There is overkill on the language, and the sexual situations. The killing, of both living and non-living, I expected. So, I mainly read the book because I'm a fan of the show, but had there not been a show, the book would not stand alone for me. I would've put it down after the first chapter.
If I could say anything positive, it had enough action and description of the "walkers" and the characters fighting off the walkers to keep your attention. It had a small amount of emotion in it to make you "feel" something, whether it was fear, sadness, anger etc at what was going on. I thought one of the best described characters in the book was Penny and the way the Governor looked after her and got some of the other characters to take care of her. I thought the way she was described, as the book progressed, showed the breakdown of the walkers as they themselves deteriorate, as well as their clothing.
I thought the emotions of the Governor with her were close to what the show had as well and seemed in fact the only real thing in the book. I really wanted to enjoy it more, but it just didn't happen. View all 4 comments. Oct 28, Kevin rated it really liked it Shelves: horror , post-apocalypic , zombies.

As a disclaimer, I won a copy of this book via a giveaway on Tor. I've read a lot of books about zombies. To further clarify that, I've read a lot of bad books about zombies. The most common failings are usual tied to the nature of zombies. What are these creatures? Where did they come from?
What do they want? Oh lets try to figure that out while the former kindly woman from next door eats her cats.
The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury 2 by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga (2013, Paperback)
But wait Characters are not only faced with an onslaught of creatures that consider them food Highly recommended! Dec 04, Mamesleaj rated it it was amazing.
I started reading the walking dead graphic novels and fell in love with them. I devour them and read them so very fast. I love how they are written and the art work. This book may not have had the art work but it was still a 5 star book! Jul 31, Ryan Carson rated it it was ok Shelves: sleepy-brain , eating-brains. I thought the slow pacing was just in the TV series, it's not. Long Answer The Walking Dead series is a genre in its own.
Character development is a crucial aspect to these books. The listener can empathize with at least one character. You would eventually end up like characters in these books. Would you be an Alpha or a Follower? These books give an insight into how the world would be if civilization crashed and an ever eminent threat loomed over them. This installment follows a group of unsuspecting individuals that are welcomed into Woodbury where the Governor has risen to power. They know all is not as it seems, but a safe place to sleep.
The entrance of this new dynamic help start in motion the events change the future of all the characters and Woodbury. What did you like best about this story?

I always like the interactions between characters. The way these authors build them into people and not just "characters," and put them into real world situations. Which character — as performed by Fred Berman — was your favorite?

That would be Josh, although the Governor is pretty tempting too. This book did NOT have he characters from the tv show in it. Instead, it features a whole new plot line, explaining the governor in depth: who is he and how did his experiences make him into this fearsome villain?? I may be late on the bandwagon, but I am so thoroughly enjoying this series that I bought an extra 3 credits from Audible and will be buying another 3 shortly to continue this series.
Actually I take it back.
