Following in the footsteps of the New York Times best-selling graphic novels and the record-breaking new television show, this debut novel in a trilogy of original Walking Dead books chronicles the back story of the comic book series' greatest villain, The Governor. In the Walking Dead universe, there is no greater villain than The Governor. The despot who runs the walled-off town of Woodbury, he has his own sick sense of justice: whether it’s forcing prisoners to battle zombies in an arena for the townspeople’s amusement, or chopping off the appendages of those who cross him. The Governor was voted “Villain of the Year” by Wizard magazine the year he debuted, and his story arc was the most controversial arc in the history of The Walking Dead comic book series. Now, for the first time, fans of The Walking Dead will discover how The Governor became the man he is, and what drove him to such extremes.
It took me a bit to get into, but once I did it was impossible to stop listening. The narrator's voice was also an adjustment to familiarize with; he speaks with a breathy voice but after an hour into the book, his narration fit the story. The last 2 hours is some of the best horror fiction I've ever read/listened. Looking forward to the next book.
Sad Tale Of Humanity
This story was great snd I wanted to both hug and slap our lead protagonist! It was a story of how, as always, we humans will kill ourselves off before the zombies will! Thanks for the listen!
Book is much more than a tale of zombies. This is a sad story of humanity.
