Product Description

Review

Praise for The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor:

"Zombie-apocalypse stories are perfect for miserable winter weather regardless, but for those obsessed with The Walking Dead (such as yours truly), this is essential reading. This is the epitome of a page-turner, and makes subway rides just breeze by. And, that end –woof."
—REFINERY29

“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

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.

If you're a fan of the show you'll love this book.

In this book you get more of an insight on the Governors life and how he came to be the evil person you see in the show.

Interesting read. You wouldn't have to be a fan to read it. Actually, in some ways, you might be better off to seeing season 3.

I enjoy the TV show and the comics as well. I'm not a fan of Spinoffs but I thought I'd give this a try. Starting with the Kindle sample, I was hooked and have to say when I got to the end, my jaw dropped and now I'm on a mission to convince my wife (A fan of the show) to read this as well.
