The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
by Jay Bonansinga
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

5.0 out of 5 stars love the TV series and loved the book, 23 Feb. 2012
The book is original in that it isnt the dialogue of the TV series but a side story telling the tale of one of the 'comics' most notorious characters. A very good tale with indepth character developement. I wish they would put more of their comic adventures into novel format as I'm not such a big comic reader and I suspect that there audience would almost triple if they did put there works into novels.

4.0 out of 5 stars preferable to his other zombie novels, 23 Feb. 2012
I enjoyed this book. I enjoyed his other works 'Rot and Ruin' and 'Dust and Decay' but these were both for the teenage market and written as such where as this novel was very well written and obviously for the older reader.

3.0 out of 5 stars true to the script, 23 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Dawn of the Dead (Paperback)
George Romero, what more can you say....well alot really. His films were ground breaking but the book isnt that great. Dont get me wrong if you havent seen the film you would be impressed but if you have seen the film as I suspect many readers of this type of novel would have then it simply is the film in word for word.

4.0 out of 5 stars american, 23 Feb. 2012
This review is from: New Zed Order: Survive (Paperback)
a good tale but american through and through. Too much emphasis on types of weaponry, going into far too much detail that the story almost halts waiting for the dialogue to recommence.

4.0 out of 5 stars nice ending, 23 Feb. 2012
well written and a good original tale. Seems to be a bit hastily put togethor at times, as if the author wanted to write more but had to condense it, but a good story with a very original ending.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been a good gripping novel but unfortunately turns into a humorous joke, 10 Oct. 2011
This review is from: Zombie Apocalypse! (Paperback)
I bought this hoping it to be a good account (or combination of accounts) about, well, a zombie apocolypse. Written by a plathora of authors in the form of letters, e-mails, bloggs etc all with a common theme and collectively making it one story. It starts well with a good build up that quickly grabs your attention. Serious, dark and yet humurous at times which I quite enjoyed. HOWEVER, towards the end of the book it appeared that the writers had lost sight of the original premise and it quickly became a mix of humourous anecdotes. I expected it to be a bit fragmented at times, being penned by several authors, and I'm all for zombie novels trying to mix things up to grab your attention or give different takes on the zombie/horror market but it was as if they had given up on it being a serious gripping horror novel and turned it into a humorous joke. I did finnish the book with a chuckle which is what the authors obviously wanted, especially the last 2 chapters without giving too much away, but I finnished it feeling like I had read 2 different books, one serious with a dark take on a zombie apocolypse and the other light hearted and humurous, which didnt leave me feeling satisfied in any way. Read it and come to your own conclusions but I think you will be disapopinted at the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars best zombie book in decades, 23 Sept. 2011
This review is from: World War Z (Paperback)
Bought this when I heard it was being made into a film starring Brad Pitt. Not too bothered about the 'Pitt' but I love zombie films so was stoked there was a big budget film going to be made and had to read the book just to get the story before I watched the film (like to spoil myself). Anyway, the book is outstanding. Not a gory horror as most zombie books/films can be, but more atmospheric and story developing. A great read that kept me engrosed from start to finnish. An ensemble of short stories, the Zombie War being told to a reporter from the perspectives of some of the key characters in the saga. A must buy for any zombie lover. Got a feeling the film will be far from adequate though like most films from books are but will have to watch it anyway.
