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.

    "Different but so good!"

    The books are not like the show at all so don't order if you think this. The books, at least the first couple are all the back story of the governor.
    I was so surprised at how much I truly enjoy TWD books. If you're a fan you really need to listen to the book series.

    "Big fan of the walking dead, but..."

    ...this story was lazy and predictable. Lots of eye rolling plot turns. The narration was good but way to frenetic at times. There was very little of a story with flat characters who I never found myself rooting for or caring about.

    "Awesome....as always!"

    Love it; sad when it ended! Reader is massively talented, with the ability to create and persuasively sound like a wide range of characters. Writing is exciting as always!

    "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!

    "a shame"

    i kinda wish I never got this book
    it's hard to listen to I have no problem with the voice but it's just the story I thought was really poor
    of course other people will have there view on it and think it was really good
    for what I did listen to I thought it was boring and regret my purchase in the long run

    "Brilliant!"

    I'm really enjoying this series so far. As a fan of The Walking Dead TV show, I was worried it might not live up to my expectations but it surpassed them. It provides more background for The Governor and Woodbury and I haven't been able to put it down as the narrator builds suspense well. Really looking forward to the introduction of Rick and the gang in the next one.

    "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.
