Item Details

"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 the New York Times bestselling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor"--Provided by publisher. "First came the ground-breaking comic book series. Then came the record-breaking television show. Next, the bestselling novel, Rise of the Governor. Now, having peered into the Governor's horrific past in the first book, this riveting sequel delves into Philip Blake's ascension as the leader of Woodbury. But it won't be easy . . . there are those within this walled-off city who don't trust Philip or his motives . . . or the strange scratching sounds that come from his apartment. But Philip Blake is determined to turn Woodbury into a haven from the post-apocalyptic nightmare surrounding Woodbury, and he'll do whatever necessary to make sure that his vision sees fruition. Even if that means killing the people currently in charge"--Provided by publisher.

I love the series, purchased DVDs & have watched more than once. With Kirkman involved, I expected much better. Forced myself to read 30 pages, but couldn't take anymore.

I love the television drama series, ‘The Walking Dead.’ The Road to Woodbury - The Walking Dead was somewhat interesting. Not recommended for children whatsoever due to the content. Doctor-at-Bass! T. A.

Excellent book!!! Any walking dead fan would love this book.

Only character from the show is Martinez and the Govener.
BUT it will tied you over until the next episode. Does NOT give away anything from the actual show.

We start the story meeting a survivor named Lilly, who we follow along as she makes her way to Woodbury with a small group of survivors.

The governor has just taken control of Woodbury.

The story is well written, and moves along nicely, though in the end I was wondering, what about Bob.
