Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor:
"Zombie-apocalypse stories are perfect for miserable winter weather regardless, but for those obsessed with The Walking Dead (such as yours truly), this is essential reading. This is the epitome of a page-turner, and makes subway rides just breeze by. And, that end –woof."
“An excellent companion to the The Walking Dead comic books. The story is enriched by the novel format, and the characterization of the series' most hated villain is something no fan will want to miss.”
“This book stands alone and is a compelling read for fans of the series or just fans of zombies. Watch out though, because once you get a taste of the particular Kirkman brand of zombie mayhem, catching up on past issues is just around the corner.”
“The story makes a great novel. You'll get sucked in and can easily visualize everything that is happening. It's simply a great read.”
“It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not.”
“Not for the faint of heart, this book runs on pressure-cooker suspense, graphically described bloodshed, and dark acts of brutality...This riveting character study adds a new dimension to the oeuvre by fleshing out established characters and plot lines.”
—School Library Journal

The whole series of this book is well worth reading - I loved it. It deviates a bit from the TV series but it gives a different perspective of the times and a different group.Published 6 days ago by Kathy H.

After reading the comic books I expected more from the Governor but was sadly mistaken.
It was very slow. If they write a book on Negan though I may bite. :)
