This is the best audiobook I've listened to do far! I loved it! It was exciting and keep you wondering what would happen next.
The end of the book shocked me! I never saw it coming.
The narrator was good too. It's almost like you are watching a movie.
If you like The Walking Dead tv show, then it's definitely a MUST-READ!!!!
I have been a fan of the series since it began on AMC. So, the book was an easy sell for me. I was fascinated by the back story, or prequel, giving some insight to the governors pschykey.
Although this does not match the other versions of this apocalypse that Kirkman has created, it holds strong. This book, like the comic and TV show explores the characters that may be created if zombies arose.
I think RK is trying to work out the best way to get this nightmare out of his head. He is doing very well in my humble opinion.
The narrator does an awesome job and really gets into each character. I loved this audiobook so much I am buying it for my brother so that he can finish it before next weeks The Walking Dead episode.
The most memorable part of the book has to be when Penny dies.
Phillip and Brian's friend Nick is definitely my favorite character performed by Fred Berman.
No doubt about it I would definitely want to have dinner with Brian Blake.
Just use one of your credits on it and stop hoarding them!!!
I'm an avid audible book listener. I am a huge fan of supernatural books and like stuff that is scary but well written. I live in Denver Co
I am a huge huge fan of the tv show and this was just a great book(s) to feed my addiction!
Gives insight into the governor and just gives great food for the zombie hunger!
How descriptive it is, and if you've not read the graphic novel or even if you have, it gives you the scoop on the Governor :)
Road to Woodbury, as it's the second book in the series, WHEN IS THE 3rd ONE COMING?!?!
Philip Bake taking on the highway zombies.... "I GOT THIS!"
Nah, no crying but when they're helping to clear out apartment rooms it had me on edge visualizing the tight quarters, imagining the stenches, and what might lurk on the other side of any given door. Disgusted at the things Philip did towards the end...
Outstanding listen, I believe its better than the Road to Woodbury, as it's a much more focused book, though I also gave it 5 stars across the board. Philip Blake's strength, rage, and insanity combined with Brian's transformation makes for a gut wrenchingly addictive listen. I have about a 45 min ride to and from work each day and often found myself sitting in the drive way at the end of the day, even after I'd arrived home, to finish a chapter or get to a stopping point.
If you enjoyed the graphic novels, and watch the series, then this is a great back story on how the governor comes to power, and how he finds woodberry.
Phillip Blake, but not but not because he's a great guy, but he is the driving force of the story.
The ending, blew me away! I was shocked! It's great.
Yes - Fred Berman really brought the words to life. Enjoyed it very much.
Brian Blake - His character evolution and
Fred Berman does a splendid job of breathing life into the characters and really making you feel for them in their situations.
The Walking Dead: Origin of The Govenor
Loved this book so much that I'm listening to The Walking Dead: Road to Woodbury
what a great book. i felt i had to write a review cause every time i read the ones listed i find them so whinny, neg and quite frankly way off that you hardly even get the right impression. so many people complain about this and that, saying its to descriptive and what not....all i have to say is read the f'in book its great!!!! what a rollercoster and a surprise twist ending what else do you want out of a book. to all those with such neg reviews i want to say pull your heads out of your asses and start enjoying things for what they are and stop trying to make verbal improvements were none are needed. the book was a 10 out of 10 and a must read not only for WD fans but for anyone that wants to read a good book!!!!
The narrator was great. Emotion, voice changes for different characters.
The surprise at the end, was worth the whole book.
The narrator continues to deliver in each book.
