Editorial Reviews

Review

“An entertaining read.” ―ComicBookMovie.com

“The novel fleshes out . . . backstories and connects them, giving depth to people who remained largely mysteries in the comic books. For comic book readers, the novel is full of easter eggs and surprise connections, making it not only entertaining, but necessarily for filling in the gaps left by the comic books . . . ‘The Road to Woodbury' is an essential read for any fan of ‘The Walking Dead'.” ―Examiner.com

“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.” ―REFINERY29

“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.” ―Examiner.com

“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 Ossuary

“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.” ―Comicvine.com

“It takes great advantage of the literary medium in a way that most tie-in books would not.” ―TVOverMind.com

“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

I am an obsessive Walking Dead fan. I love the comic books and I love the TV show. This was my 3rd hardback and while it's okay....I wasn't bowled over by it. It's just okay. I think I was only lukewarm because of Lilly. I'm just not getting hooked on her. Her character just doesn't pull me in. Maybe because I identify the Walking Dead by the TV characters? Dunno. For anyone who has never read the comic books or seen the TV show this series would be an awesome read but for me it was just okay.

Let’s get something out of the way really quick before we begin the review. One, if you’ve not seen the TV Show, or heard of the plot between the Governor and Rick, then you’ve probably been under a rock. Two, this is NOT the TV show. This series of books follows The Governor within the confines of THE COMIC BOOK. They are two TOTALLY different characters. TV Governor is a watered down version of the COMIC Governor. Oh, and there’s spoilers ahead, but if you are reading a review with a book that has PART TWO in the title, you better expect some. We good? Okay, let’s continue.

I was a little upset with the first book in this Fall of the Governor Duology. I felt that they didn’t really capitalize on the retail they had and explore the invasion of Woodbury from the Governors point of view to its fullest potential. It was the ONE thing I was looking forward to, and I felt robbed.

This book however, does everything that book one didn’t do! There is so much character development with Bob Stookey and Lilly Caul, and you even get a better look into the motivation of Lilly as to why she finally just said screw it, and shot the Governor in the head.

You also get a look inside the manipulations of the Governor after he got the holy hell beat out of him by Michonne. You know the Governor is an evil person bent on revenge, but, to truly see the depths of his manipulations in order to serve his purpose, how he is able to grab hold and keep the inhabitants of Woodbury on his side against all evidence, is something to behold. The lies he spins, and the half-truths he tells could all be completely plausible.

I really enjoyed all of the Governor series books..my only gripe with this one was the last 100 or so pages just dragged on so much I had to start skipping pages just to get thru it...the book itself was good, just the end was slow

It's a good book, mostly typical of Kirkman/Bonansinga style as in the previous reads, but I don't like Lilly's character and would have preferred a better ending that suits my dislike for her. I won't post any spoilers as to why I don't like the ending, but I also disliked her character from "Road to Woodbury", yet I still enjoyed that novel and the 1st "Fall of the Gov" novel. I would re-sell this book on amazon, but I hate to break up a set. Kinda like I wouldn't re-sell Star Wars episode 1, even though it sucked, since it is part of a series. But that's my opinion.

Woodbury is in shock from the mutilation of their leader, but The Governor recovers, only to seek revenge against Michonne and those at the prison. But Phillip Blake soon discovers that he's not the badass he thinks he is (I love it when bullies get their just rewards), and there just might be a new sheriff in town. There were a few scenes that I thought were completely unrealistic. For instance, one of the characters is killed by Phillip. He takes heavy gunfire after the killing, which makes no sense. Why would the snipers at the prison just let Philip have his way, and then try to take him out? Some more prison characters are introduced, but like the previous book, the storylines are completely different from the television series. I don't know about how it compares to the comic books as I have not read them. It's still a fun read, but a lot of the phrases and descriptions are a bit trite.

I received this book for free to review.

Now, I'm a big fan of the TV show and the comics, and expected to enjoy this book. And I did, to an extent. But it left me a bit mystified.

Let me back up. This is the story of what happens after the governor's run in with Michonne. And that story is far more graphic in the book than in the tv show, so if you've only watched the show be prepared for that. It then follows the Woodbury folks back to the prison and through all that happens there. Different view of a story fans are pretty familiar with at this point.

What mystified me is that somehow I felt like the reader was supposed to feel a bit of sympathy for the Woodbury crew. And I just couldn't get there. Yes, Lilly's story is sometime sad, but at this point the fans have been through so much of "these are the bad guys" that it's hard to muster anything other than mediocre feelings for anything going on. Now, maybe I misread that and it really was just supposed to be a different POV, but I don't feel like it added much at all to the world mythology.

All in all a pleasant but shallow way to pass some time.
