Prepare. Move. Survive.
The death of Josh Hamilton. I liked his character, much as I liked T Dog from the TV show and Tyrese from the Comic and TV show.
Fred Berman is an excellent narrator. He accents each character with a uniqueness giving each of them a voice. He also provides much needed pauses in the reading allowing the listener to visualize the scene.
If you are a fan of the Comics and TV Show on AMC, then you should read this book and The Rise of the Governor. That way you can get the full back story of the Governor!
dont spend too much time on characters lives and activities. First book was better held my interest
cesar martinez and bruce. the accents were great
Story not very good. Suppose to be a zombie book. Too much time spent on characters lives and activities. First book was better held my interest. Most likely will not purchase another book of this series without some great rating.
I know the series. I know the comic books. I had originally purchased the hardcover and became spoiled with audio books, so I purchased this in audio and started listening and could not "put it down." Walking the dog, sitting on my porch, before I feel asleep. It's a fantastic story, a great back story to the series and a phenomenal story even if you don't ever pick up a comic or watch the series. The narrator is fantastic!!!! One of the best I've ever heard, his range of voices is astounding. Once I'm done with this one, I'm on to the Rise and the Fall of the Governor (books 2 & 3). But I suggest you start with this one, where it all began.
A very scary-cool view into the Governor's decent into madness.
This guy does a great job in my opinion, great Afro-American, great southern and great latino accents - throw in some old men and distinct women voices - very talented voice!
Poorly written storyline that used an absurd amount of adjectives and adverbs creating a much longer story than necessary. Not only did it feel long but it also did not develop the characters properly leading to large leaps in relationships that were unbelievable.
It has not turned me off from this series because I am addicted to the "The Walking Dead" series as a whole, but I will admit to reading this book as a guilty pleasure and feel a little ashamed.
Outstanding performance by Fred Berman. With out his strong performance I would not have made it through this book.
