THE INTERSTATE IS ON FIRE
My favorite show is Game of Thrones, followed by The Walking Dead. I waited a long time for this to go on sale and snatched it up the first time it did. I was so disappointed. It is just guys running around killing zombies. Kirkman and Bonansinga do try to be the T.S. Eliot of the zombie genre with their elegant language and big words, but the story sucks or the lack of story, I should say. This is one of the few times when the written word is worse than the show or movie.
Pass on this one.
HE WAS A GOD DAMN GOOD MAN AND HE DIED LIKE A MAN.

I am a fan of the series and so picking up this book was a no-brainer. (Pun intended...)
But the book takes on a "they run...they kill zombies...then they run to a different place" feel that is tedious after a while. If you're looking for backstory on "the Governor" don't expect much. Because it only comes out in the last few minutes.
Author tries to create tension but in the end we're left with one-dimensional completely predictable (although sometimes gross) character actions and motivations.
The narrator is excellent -- trying to do his best with an essentially flatlined story.
Is it listen-able. Sure.
Are there better options? Absolutely.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor to be better than the print version?
I havent read the print version but the performance for me really added to the story so I would expect the audio edition to be better than the print version.
What did you like best about this story?
Some pretty dark areas are covered within the story which were really insightful and added a great deal to the background of the walking dead series.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
When the group were in Atlanta, I wont go into more detail as to avoid spoilers .

Loved Fred Berman's narration and the book itself is great. I can not wait for the 2nd book.
