Definitely! There was so much going on throughout the entire story. I will definitely be listening to this again.
The surprises. I thought I pretty much knew what was going to be the outcome of this book. I was completely wrong!!!
Narrator was excellent. He did a really great job with the volatile Phillip.
Anger, so many characters infuriated me in this story.... Other characters made me feel so sad! This is a well written book! Can't wait to read part 2.
I put off reading this book, because I watch the show. I didn't want to waste a credit if they were exactly the same. But the book is so much better than the show. (as usual)
boring, predictable, maybe the vulgarity could be excepted if not for the story....looking for a walking dead fix can i get my money back
as good as possible
Fantasy geek, literature lover!
I'd reccomend it to anyone who likes the TV show in particular and the comics too. The book evokes the world of despair and
Brian, its "descent" into villainy. Philip is just a tad too crazy.
His performance as Philip was too much "cooked", if you get my meaning. He seems always on the point of breaking, it's just too much. Well done as for Nick and the Chalmer sisters. The Penny-Brian relationship too.
No, please... I'd be seriously worried if it had!
OK the southern accent: marked but still understandable for us not US residents. Berman's a professional, of course, and he does his job with a certain skill. His Philip was really annoying, sometimes too much.
Just love listing to audiobooks. Some of my favorite authors are Vince Flynn and Brad Thor
Yes, if you love just really good zombie books this is for you. Also, if your a fan of the show you will love it as well
Brian, his development threw out the hole book.
The final scene.
Just a great movie for the zombie fan!!
Probably, its a pretty good story, but the terrible editing take away from it alot
I have not
Yes, but barely
Tons of really stupid technical mistakes. Not just the annoying little stuff that fanboys love to point out, but stuff that a lot of everyday people would pick up on. For examples, Ford doesn't make the S-10 pickup, Chevy does and The Delta Force is not part of the Marine Corps. These are just two GLARING examples. There's a lot more subtle stuff two, things that any 5th grader with an internet connection could have check on and corrected. One or two of these is understandable, but this book is LOUSY with them! It really takes away from the experience.
One of my favorite books listened to it twice now.
I've read the actual book and I liked it but Berman's performance made me love it very well done
The narrator did an amazing job bringing the characters to life. Each personality sounded unique and he was capable of translating the emotional turmoil the characters experience within storyline perfectly!
The storyline became a little overwhelming at times, to the point that all their great escapes and small victories felt hurried & un- impressive after a while.
It truly is a good story, but if you are looking for a book that will leave you with any kind of fondness for the characters that you stared of the journey with; this book is not for you!
I believe that the audiobook brings a new depth in the characters,specially that of Phil's brother. The audio book narration gives you a even deeper concept of the emotional disarray & confusion this character go's thru, even from before the zombies started to hit the fan.
The walking dead; Death of all hope.
(corny, but I bet that once you read it; you will understand)
Lover of books with a good plot, strong characters, lots of action, no whiners allowed, and only a small amount of well placed cheese
Yes, edgy story line. Great suspence. I couldn't wait to get back to it every time I had to put it down.
The whole Penny dying part, I knew Philip was going to lose and Brian would pay the price.
If I could have I would have.
This should be made into a movie - I can't wait to listen to the next one, The Road to Woodbury. I hope it's just as good.
Spreadhead and Biblioholic.
Okay, so this isn't Tolstoy by any means, or even Stephen King. But it was a diverting read and allows me to cryptically make comments to other Walking Dead fans indicating I know more than they do about The Governor. I had meant this as a temporary break from what I consider more worthwhile reading, but downloaded the second book in the series as soon as I finished the first. I'm trying to space it out since the TV series does not resume til October (would that I had I their work schedule), but I keep hitting the second book like it's a crack pipe.
In summary, if you aren't a fan of the show OR the genre, steer clear. If you like the genre but have never seen the show, (once you come out of your cave) give this book a try. If you like the genre and the show, I think you'll love the book.
This is a must read for Walkind Dead fans. Well narrated.
