Publisher's Summary

The fourth and final audiobook in Robert Kirkman's New York Times best-selling series, The Walking Dead: Fall of the Governor, Part Two!

The Walking Dead series of original novels, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic comic, reaches its crescendo in The Fall of the Governor, Part Two. From coauthors Robert 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 fourth and final 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 Book Two, 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.

In The Fall of the Governor, Part One, classic characters from both the comic and television series, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally made their appearance in the Walking Dead novel series, only to discover that the Governor is a very dangerous enemy. Now, after a pulse-pounding series of events, the Governor and Rick face off one last time, and only one of them will be left standing...

    Story
    "Enthralling from the start to the finish!"
    If you could sum up The Fall of the Governor, Part Two in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense. Horror. Hope.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fall of the Governor, Part Two?

    Austin's brave sacrifice to save the remaining Woodbury Militia and his love, Lily. Bitten by a walker, exhausted from combat, the infection spreading, he still conjures up the strength and courage to draw a horde of walkers away while the others escape. While being fed upon by the hungry mob of the undead, his final thoughts are of Lily.


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

    The Governor


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

    I don't know if just this one book would enough material for an entire film, but I would gander a tagline would be The Walking Dead: The Angel of Woodbury.
    The reason I would name it The Angel of Woodbury is because of Lily's character and how she rids Woodbury of the Governor and becomes its leader.


    Any additional comments?

    Highly recommend if you are a fan of both the comics and the TV show.

    "I couldn't get through this book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    People who enjoy reading books with an over abundance of detail!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga again?

    I don't know. I love The Walking Dead graphic novels but I just didn't enjoy this series of books.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fred Berman?

    Yes, the narration was on point.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Fall of the Governor, Part Two?

    Not sure I'd cut any scene. The story, the amount I was able to get through, was good. It was just too "wordy" or should I say long-winded, verbose, prolix, lengthy, protracted, long-drawn-out, overlong, rambling, circumlocutory, periphrastic, pleonastic; loquacious, garrulous, voluble. I don't need you to describe how sad someone feels by using 50 different words to describe that emotion.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel as though the authors love using a thesaurus and wanted to show how smart they are by using so many different words to describe the most mundane things. Geez I get it already!

    "Another great story documenting the governor"

    I've really enjoyed all of the books in this series. This one finishes up the fall of the governor. The narrator is perfect for these books and does a great job keeping you into the story.

    Looking forward to more.

    "Another great Five-star audio-book!"

    Jay Bonansinga knocks another one out of the park. Fred Berman's narrative breathes excellent life into this fine written work, another fine Audible listen! I can't wait for more! Five-stars all across the board!

    "Amazing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Each book on the Governor only gets better as you read along. This one is no different.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Fall of the Governor, Part Two?

    The Governor's demise was the most memorable part of this book for me; with the fall of a leader comes the birth of a leader.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Austin helped what remained of the survivors escape from the prison.


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

    This is a hard question, but I would like to take Martinez out to dinner to hear more about his story and what it is that keeps him going.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is my second favorite of the series. Mainly because everything in the series has been building up to this last book, and partly because of some of the heart stringing moments that were experienced by the characters. By this point you have pretty much made a connection with all the characters and feel their pain as they progress through the end of the Governor's reign. Hate or like The Governor, his reign kept the people of Woodbury alive.

    Loved this entire series, getting to know the whole story of the governor and the residents of woodberry. A little disappointed that some of the original characters from the tv show did not play a bigger role in the book, however it did not take away from this story. I would say this final book had more climatic action and was just as well written and narrorated as the previous 3 books. It wont let you down.

    "Open ending, could there be more?"

    OK, so the has been a bunch of controversy surrounding the last two books of this four book trilogy, I understand that many are angry, hurt, feeling betrayed and the like. But that does not take away from the brilliance of Kirkman and Bonansinga, being able to keep everything far more gruesome than the TV show and yet somehow more satisfying. Fall of the Governor Part 2 picks up immediately where Part One leaves off, almost as if there wasn't a call for the separation of books. A majority of the first half is about the Governor picking himself up and putting himself back together and recovering from the brutally horrific assault that Michonne gave him. While he fights his own internal battle we are gifted with more character coming to light and becoming a large part of the overall story. Bob the drunk actually becomes, against all odds, the Governer's savior. Lilly has struggles of her own to overcome. What I was most surprised about was how different the siege of the prison was compared to the TV show, I only wish the show followed this storyline more. I like how this set of books leaves Rick and the gang out of the picture for the most part. However, if we follow that we know how the battle ends, for the most part, as there are many survivors left to continue on and hopefully Kirkman and Bonansinga will see the need to continue building on and within this superbly planned out universe.

    Audiobook purchased by me.

    A good if slightly disappointing end to the Governor trilogy. Definitely worth a punt though.
