A solid stenchy read,
This review is from: The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury (Walking Dead Book 2) (Paperback)
A different angle on the Walking Dead Universe which gets a thumbs up from this fan of the comic and the TV show. As such it is limited by certain constraints (eg I know which characters are definitely going to survive!) - but yet it still manages to be an enthralling read (and is a distinct improvement on the 'Rise of the Governor').
The main character, Lilly, is an engaging young woman with many of the frailties that one would expect of anyone thrust into a Zombie Apocalypse, and as so instantly grabs the reader's attention as we live through the increasingly bleak world along with her.
All in all this is a good read even if you aren't familiar with the WD World, and works just as well as a one-off read - 4 stars out of 5. It loses one point for a rather weak ending which feels somewhat forced.
NB - There are a few concepts which TWD and other Zombie stories haven't covered which I'm saving for my own Zombie novel when I get around to it!
