I have been reading this series of The Walking Dead Books and have so far enjoyed "The Rise of the Governor" and "The Road to Woodbury" - Following Brian, Phillip, Penny & Phillips friends in "The Rise of the Governor" brought an interesting insight into the character of the governor - I was worried that the first book would give justification for why he was such a scumbag and ultimately make the reader root for him, but I actually finished the book thinking he was a bigger scumbag than the show and the comics portrayed. "The Road to Woodbury" followed Lily Caul and her friends as they search for somewhere safe to stay and ultimately lead them to Woodbury, where by this point the Governor was the leader of the settlement. "The Road to Woodbury" took the reader through all of the details that the residents of Woodbury were too happy to turn a blind eye to provided they got what they needed. I was really excited by the third book in the series at first. I was excited to see the story mould into how it is portrayed in the show and in the comics - but the book has just been such a lack luster. It is okay, but it just feels like someone used a lot of copying and pasting. There is the usual graphic detail of violence and the usual sick antics of the Governor - but it felt thrown together. It didn't feel thought out properly. To be honest, it felt like someone watched the show and then wrote a book based off what it was like in Woodbury towards the end. I think its the type of thing I could write if I took the time, I would have preferred the book if the little details of life in Woodbury were less the views of Rick and his gang and more like the first two books, where it feels fresh and feels like a completely different perspective. I haven't read part 2 yet.Read more ›

I liked the two previous books but am very disappointed with this half. Kirkman and Bonansinga have either gathered together separate ideas from the waste paper basket in a hurry or somebody new with less talent has taken up the job. The story neither starts nor ends anywhere (well, it is only part one...) and there are many pieces of text that made me wonder if I had just missed a page or two, for example, the story of the Valdosta women, which was clearly glued on to fill one more page before deadline. Lilly, previously a kind of sympathetic opportunist with growing potential, is now a flat, two-dimensional outsider in her own story. I hope that in Part 2 the writers will also get the details sorted out and, for example, decide if Michonne is a small and slim woman or, indeed, "an amazon".

I am very disappointed but even more disgusted. The first two books contain violence, as would be expected, but this book celebrates it. The torture is described in smallest detail over and over again with the same words and images. A hint to the writers: do not use repetition, use a larger font and wide margins. It is the story that counts, not the number of pages.

Hi, Im a walking dead fan, collected the comics since 2002 (which turned out rather lucrative)
Not a fan of TV show as its a bit tame with too many 'eh?' moments.
Slightly enjoyed the 1st book, "Rise of the Govenor" and the 2nd "Road to Woodbury" I'd say this book has nothing out of the ordinary in it, a generic zombie bok which adds little to the walking dead story line. It was bought as a present which was nice but my opinion on these books is to get them from a library, you could read each in a day or 2, they aren't worth the shelf space whereas the graphic novels certainly are.

I'm not going to post a book review mainly because I haven't finished it and I don't want to give any spoilers away. I've read the rest of the books in the series so I can say that whilst it's not going to win any major literary awards (the quality of writing is a little hit and miss), it's an enjoyable detour from the main story arc and follows the TV show more closely than the comic books. It's possible to blitz through it in a few hours, or else make the commute far more pleasant over a week.

The seller I bought mine from initially sent Part Two, but once I made them aware they got Part One out to me in double quick time, so I can't fault their service.

I fell in love with the first book, suffered through the second and found that this third book really isn't that great. Without giving the plot away, characterization that has been worked on throughout the last book feels like it's just been thrown out the window and replaced with a totally different personality! The book writing style is also fairly difficult to read, especially when you've lost any connection with the characters.

Anyway, I think 3* is generous, unfortunately I won't be buying the next in the series since I've lost interest now.

I love the TV show of The Walking Dead, and also the comic books... So thought I'd give the 4 novels a try, in-between waiting for the next TV series and next lot of comic books. Got to say, I really enjoyed reading all 4 of them, although the first 1 was standout, with the others not quite so good. If you're a fan of the TV show/comic books, then these 4 novels will be a really enjoyable read and put an extra spin on things... Basically you see things from a different perspective, ie - The Governors! Well worth a try.
