Publisher's Summary

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.

    "The first book is better"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I was really looking forward to this book after reading "The Rise of the Governor." The first book was interesting and kept your attention. This book just does not have the same interesting story. It was a chore trying to finish it :(


    Has The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None really.


    Do you think The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. I believe the writers can put out another book as good as the first one.

    Story
    "Good follow-on to the "Governor" storyline."
    Where does The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very engaging. Not a stand-alone story.The writing style is good, the narration top-notch. I cannot imagine the immense talent and dedication required to be a good presenter for this type of material.

    Meshes well with the AMC series.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The continuation of the "Governor" storyline.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is very good. Consistent with other titles in this line.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    The story of the Governor's rise to power.

    Story
    "A step down from Rise of the Governor"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This book continues the ever-expanding Walking Dead universe, and it makes for a decent and quick listen. It’s got a little bit of drama, a little bit of love, a whole lot of action, and plenty of zombie gore.


    Would you recommend The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury to your friends? Why or why not?

    I didn’t personally find the book as compelling or satisfying as Rise of the Governor. Some of the storylines just seemed re-hashed from previous Walking Dead material. But I still enjoyed the book face-value as a quick and dirty read.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I’ve heard quite a lot of complaints about Fred Berman’s narration style, particularly from some Walking Dead fan podcasts. I’ve enjoyed his narration in both books and don’t really see the complaints. He adds drama when appropriate and is a rather good voice actor for this type of materials. True, he overdoes it at times, but for a book of this style, with so much gratuity, swearing, and death, I can’t complain.

    "Killer listen!"
    Would you listen to The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury again? Why?

    Yes. How can someone possibly get enough of Walking dead anything? Plus the Governor really gets interesting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Lilly and her relationships and how drastically things change so quickly. Plus did I mention the Governor?


    Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favorite?

    Definitely the Governor with Lilly a close second.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This is a survival book, but even knowing that it still surprised me several times. No time for tears in Woodbury.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are not a fan of walking dead you will still love this book. Amazingly the humans are more dangerous than the walkers.

    "Hard to believe same author"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    SNOREFEST. Really not very good as a follow up. Characters are not interesting at all. Way too much time about how hot for each other two of the main characters are ... I got it after the first ten minute stretch of how they want to bone each other. Very limited action, story is lame. LOVED the first one, but dont like this one at all. Probably the first zombie audio book I almost didnt finish.


    What could Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    start over


    What about Fred Berman’s performance did you like?

    he actually was really good. Sometimes a little too dramatic on minor events.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    sleep

    "Good Story....Great Narrator"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury to be better than the print version?

    I really enjoyed the audio version of this book because the narrator really added something to the story through his telling of it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Great action and it is a good companion to the series.


    Have you listened to any of Fred Berman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I haven't listened to any other of his performances but will look for them in the future.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "A must for horror lovers!"

    I LOVE this series of books! The Rise of the Governor gave us an insight that isn’t available in the graphic novels or TV series. This second book is more in depth still. I never read a graphic novel before The Walking Dead (assuming that at 44 I was a little old for them!) but the whole lot, graphic novels, TV series and now novels are amazing! If you like zombies you will love these books but they are also great on the human level too. Give them a go, you won’t be disappointed!

    "If you love The Walking Dead on TV then...."
    If you could sum up The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury in three words, what would they be?

    Engrossing, Tense. Brilliant


    What does Fred Berman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Fred Berman brings this book alive, was sooo glad that he narrates all the books.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely


    Any additional comments?

    If you love The Walking Dead on TV then buy these four books, you will not be disappointed. You will learn so much more about the Governor than you do in the Tv programme.

    "More Amazing!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury the most enjoyable?

    Ok, the first book was good, but this is on a different level! From start to finish it is twitchy, dark, tragic and compelling. Characters are even better than "The Rise" and the utter despair conveyed throughout is on a par with "The Road". At times i found myself shaking my head, staring into space and lost in what i had just read. Its no surprise to fans that the true horror in these books is not found in the zombie hordes but in the decisions and deeds that ordinary people find themselves immersed in but this book captures that essence brilliantly!Best book i have had so far and i have over 120 books in my audible library


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Josh. He was hope


    Which character – as performed by Fred Berman – was your favourite?

    Bob


    If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You're not locked out, you're locked in!!


    Any additional comments?

    Gripping from start to finish and the finest performance i have heard so far

    "walking great"

    I have been reading the walking dead comic since issue 1 years ago and still can't wait for the next issue each time. Now we have the 2 novels about the governor which is a major story arch in the comic, so to have the blanks filled in on the reason for his evilness was something i just couldn't pass up. Not going to give the story away but the twists in this 2nd novel and the character detail make this a must for any walking dead comic or tv show fan. well written and well narrated.
