Book Description

16 Oct 2012 Walking Dead (Thomas Dunne) (Book 2)

It is a dangerous world that Lilly lives in. The walking dead lurk in every corner, massacring anyone they can get their hands on. Nowhere is safe. But when a terrifying ordeal leaves numerous dead, Lilly and her companions are forced out of their tented community and into the open.

Safety seems to come in the form of Woodbury, a gated compound with food and protection. Yet it’s not long before the wanton dangers of Woodbury reveal themselves, and the Governor’s despotic rule of the compound threatens to undermine everything Lilly believes in. Because sometimes the dead aren't the biggest threat. It’s the living . . .

Praise for The Walking Dead novels: ‘A perfect introduction . . . and a great service to all those folks who've walked with these zombies before',, ‘The novel makes for an exciting, grippingly intense and at times gruesome one-off read’, ‘The novel hooked me from the first page . . . begs to be read’

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid adaptation 23 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The second novel in the Walking Dead adaptations, The Road to Woodbury does not disappoint. Following on from the climactic end to Rise of the Governor, this Walking Dead novel takes it into the Governor's community as Lilly becomes the latest inhabitant.
As the novel begins, Lilly is living in a makeshift encampment with her friend Josh. Josh is busy hammering stakes into tents to secure the area when the dead attack the compound. Josh is left to tackle the onslaught as Lilly runs and hides, unable to face the threat. But as the threat is soon dealt with and Josh emerges unscathed, Lilly can't cope with the guilt of leaving him to defend himself. By some miracle, Lilly saves a few children hiding with them, but one of the teenagers is turned, and the father blames Lilly for being unable to save his girl. During the funeral he takes her aside and attacks her, breaking her ribs and Josh dives in to protect her. Following these events, Josh, Lilly and a small number of survivors leave the compound and head off in the wilderness, which will lead them eventually to Woodbury.
All of this action takes place in just a couple of chapters, and this is just right, as their arrival at Woodbury and the development of that community is what grips the reader. The threat of winter is approaching, the small group entering Woodbury has nothing, and they have to rely on the community to keep them warm, safe and alive, away from the walking dead.
This novel is very much about establishing the character dynamics as much as the action taking place. Speaking of action; it is bloody, visceral and brutal. Yet the text itself is also poetic and poignant at times.

3.0 out of 5 stars Poor 3 Nov 2012
Rise of the Governor was fine, this one isn't. There is no tension, no emotion. It could have been writen by a 6th grader. Those corny, silly cliffhangers at the end of most chapters; "butthey hadn't noticedthat ...." Puhlease,, give me a break.

Really good tale from the perspective of Lily Caull showing a different side of the comic series. Better then the rise of the Governor.

If you don't know much about the walking dead then you might find it a bit boring. But apart from that it has great tension and will leave you wondering until the last page

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for Walking Dead fans! 10 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're like me and are totally addicted to The Walking Dead give this a read. It's the story of the Governor and is really interesting. Obviously not as good as the graphic novels or TV programme but great if you need more Walking Dead during TV series breaks!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing story!! 30 May 2014
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Ok I love watching the walking dead and now I love the novels.

Opens your eyes to characters that you really didnt get much info on in the TV show.

There are some slight changes if you have only just watched it on tv but I would say the changes are for the better.

Buy a copy and read it as you wont be disappointed.
