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...

this is a must read back story for fans of The Walking Dead comic if further explores the breakdown of society
If you love TWD you MUST read these books!
The Govenor, David Morrissey recommended them to me!
It's Robert Kirkman
What's not to love?
Just the backstory of this character is amazing
Great strong female character
Read all these books
this was great from start to finish. like a rollercoaster ride up ,down, sideways then back and gently comes to a rest. I enjoyed all these books. I hope I get to read or hear all of them.
Suspense. Horror. Hope.
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.
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.
Highly recommend if you are a fan of both the comics and the TV show.
People who enjoy reading books with an over abundance of detail!
I don't know. I love The Walking Dead graphic novels but I just didn't enjoy this series of books.
Yes, the narration was on point.
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.
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!
"The fall of the Governor"
If you're a fan of The Walking Dead and ever wonder what the Governor's deal was then thus series is for you.
Set in the time same time frame as Rick's arrival to Woodbury hit told from the other perspective.
Well told and nice voice acting from the reader, Fred Burman.
"Top and tailed"
Top story with a satisfying ending. There is so much more that could be explored which is why the walking dead TV series is so good.
"Interesting story arc."
A good if slightly disappointing end to the Governor trilogy. Definitely worth a punt though.
