3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Not Great, October 18, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury (The Walking Dead Series) (Hardcover)
I initially read "The Rise of the Governor" and was hooked from the first page. "Road to Woodbury", not so much. While a good read, I feel it's missing the same punch that the first book had.

Lilly Caul isn't really a likable character to me. Plus, her backstory is muddled up. There's the Lilly Caul from the comics, and there's the Lilly Caul from the Walkinh Dead video game, released by Telltale Games. Her backstory is completely different in both storylines, even so far as the name of her father and her career prior to the apocalypse.

All in all, it's a good read. I just wish it had the same staying power that the first book did. Unfortunately, I don't think it does.

You're right. Good (or decent), but not great is the right way to describe it, unfortunately.

About Lilly: At the time of your review, Lilly from the novel and Lilly from the game were the same person, but they've since become separate characters "officially" (I just feel the different back stories were the result of Kirkman and Telltale not communicating during production of both mediums).
