I kind of figured, being a fan of the show and the graphic novels, that this book would be a little redundant, but it wasn't. It gives a very interesting back story into one of the most interesting characters in the graphic novels. Really great read for any zombie fan, whether they like the series or not.

Format: Paperback
The Walking Dead franchise is taking off beyond the graphic novels and television show. There are talks of a theme park and a movie and now there is this full length novel. It tells the story of how "The Governor" became the man he is in a world where society has forever changed. The story is gritty, close and uncomfortable which serves to put the reader into the clutches of the undead. The characters and situations are raw. But its greatest asset is the 'Agatha Christie-like Ten Little Indians" plot that provides entertaining twists and turns. It is high-quality zombie convention delivered at a time when there is too much sub-par work being produced through the wonders of self-publishing. I look forward to other novels from this franchise.

Such a great insight into the governor, I went back and re-read some of the Walking Dead comics again, but with my new understanding and knowledge! Fast paced and a great read. So great to have a back story and such a complex and interesting one at that! can't say enough good things, just read it!, a must have for Walking Dead fans!!

If you're going to or have already read the Walking Dead graphic novels, definitely pick this book up too. It's a terrific addition to the story. I enjoyed it much more than the WD graphic novels because I prefer a book with no pictures. Well written and informative, it's definitely worth the money!

This is the story that follows the Governor from the beginning of the Zombie outbreak. It shows the kind of person he was and what made him the man he became. It's really great and I love the twist at the end. This is the first book in the series. I recommend it if you are a fan of the show.

Terrible writing. I really expected a better novel than this. A very confusing narrative of the Governor character if you're a fan of the comic and television show. I understand that this novel is about the comic character but the show utilizes some aspects of this story.

Story explaining what kind of man was the Governor and what made him the character he is in the "Walking Dead series". Really nice writing. This writer was an excellent choice to make the "Walking Dead" side stories shine.
