I finished reading this book a day or two ago, and what an awesome book it is too. I must confess that I have only read the first few comics in the Walking Dead series before I then got hooked on the TV show. I made a tuff call dropped the comic and went with the TV show and I haven't looked back since.
The Rise of the Governor is a novel set before the start of the TV show and as the title states tells the story of the rise of one of its most interesting characters; The Governor.
This book is brilliant, it had me on the edge of my seat throughout. The story is a real emotional ride that will have you scared out of your wits one minute, your stomach churning the next, to crying your eyes out and then reeling with shock.
If you are a fan of the TV show, The Rise of the Governor is a must read. This is and easy 5 out of 5 for me, so-much-so as soon as I finished it within five minutes I was online buying the second book.
