The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia.
At first, Woodbury seems like a perfect sanctuary. Squatters barter services for food, people have roofs over their heads, and the barricade expands, growing stronger every day. Best of all, a mysterious self-proclaimed leader named Philip Blake keeps the citizens in line. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems.... Blake, who has recently begun to call himself The Governor, has disturbing ideas about law and order.
Ultimately, Lilly and a band of rebels open up a Pandora’s box of mayhem and destruction when they challenge The Governor’s reign - and the road to Woodbury becomes the highway to hell in this riveting follow-up to Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga's New York Times best-selling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

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!
I'm not a huge fan of the narrator. It's not that he does a bad job. I just don't like his voice. But that could just be me.
Solid read. Like I said, fans of the comic will enjoy this. It ties in very nicely.
Yes Berman's performance makes you more involved in the characters
When the butcher and one of Lilly's friends get into a fight I wanted to kill him my self.Trying not to spoil it for anyone by not elaborating on it
I'm a hardcore W.D. fan. Read the comics, the books and listened to the TV show.
While I liked this book, I much prefered "The Walking Dead: Rise of The Governor" story and plot.
However, this book is still a great addition the gives us a little more information about Woodbury and the Governor.
