Praise for "The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor: "

"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"

Praise for "The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury:

""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

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.

Familiar face a are introduced in this book, and the author doesn't hold back on the gore! Found it very difficult to put down, even through the rather grisly moments - specifically the ending. A must read for any fan of the Walking Dead.

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.

By Terry Tyler TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 23 Sept. 2016
Format: Kindle Edition
I wasn't so keen on this book; it was okay at first but towards the end I thought the writing became increasingly careless, and the torture detail is only for the strongest stomach and, much of the time, is unnecessary. It needs more characterisation, less gruesome detail. This book, more than the first two, focuses more on the dark and grisly, with nothing positive. The last twenty per cent seemed rushed. I'll still read the last one, but I won't hurry to do so now; this one was just okay.

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 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 haven't read the book yet, I received it today...I am writing the review to inform other readers that the book advertised is not this one, it is part of it.
When I pre-ordered it stated 345 pages - The Fall of the Governor. This book is 245 pages long and now titled - The Fall of the Governor PART ONE....Perhaps the creators realised at the last minute that we (the readers) would discover the fate of The Governor before Season 4 started or maybe they think we are a bunch of zombies and won't notice the rip off...

Appalling treatment of fans...As for Amazon, they notified me on Wednesday that the original pre-order had been dispatched...Customer service here I come...
