Publisher's Summary

The third audiobook in Robert Kirkman's New York Times bestselling series, The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor!

The Walking Dead original novel series, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic universe, continues with The Fall of the Governor. From co-authors Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic book and executive producer of AMC's blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker Award-finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, literary saga, which began with The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

In Rise of the Governor, uber-villain Philip Blake journeyed from his humble beginnings directly into the dark heart of the zombie apocalypse, and became the self-proclaimed leader of a small town called Woodbury. In The Road to Woodbury, an innocent traveler named Lilly Caul wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake's twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury's ever tightening barricades.

And now, in The Fall of the Governor, the Governor's complex story continues in a tour de force of action and horror. Iconic characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light.

    "Either read the comics or the book. Don't do both!!"

    The Lilly story is new to me, which I was 50/50 interested. I read the comics 2 years ago and it felt word by word. I still enjoyed it, but thankfully it was short.

    Story
    "Build up of anticipation!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Fall of the Governor to be better than the print version?

    It's better for me since reading for excessive periods of time is very painful for my eyes. My vision is getting worse, so Audible is a blessing for me since it allows me to enjoy books without the discomfort.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Governor. He is my favorite because he is one of the most awesome villains ever. His ability to possess so many evil traits in a single man is just amazing! Few other villains can come close to him in my opinion.


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

    Fred Berman does a really good job with different accents, voices, monologue versus dialogue to aid in your visualization of the story.


    If you could take any character from The Fall of the Governor out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Lily, she's so damn sexy!


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend this and part 2 if you are interested in getting more of the backstory of the Governor and Woodbury.

    "Everyone sounds almost the same"

    The narrator for these books doesn't change up to much between characters causing them to sound a lot a like. Often time rick and the governor sound exactly the same. The book was good and the story line is good but not a fan of the narrator

    "Decent"

    Reader did a good job at bringing characters to life. But the sorry itself left a lot to be desired.

    "Fills in holes in the comic, but not as compelling"

    I'm a Walking Dead fan - I've read the comics in trades, watch the show, and thoroughly enjoyed the first two books in the series. This was seemed superfluous, however. While it fills in some of the holes from the comics (it is set in the comic world, not in the TV show world), there was a lot of overlap. I felt this really made the book less compelling and interesting. It's worth a read, but I'm not sure I can highly recommend it if you've already read the first 50 issues of the comic.
