Overview

The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor, Part One by Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga

The third book in Robert Kirkman's New York Times bestselling series: The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor – Part One!

The Walking Dead original novel series, set in the universe of Robert Kirkman's iconic comic book, continues with The Fall of the Governor – Part One. From co-authors Kirkman, creator of the Eisner Award-winning comic as well as executive producer of AMC's blockbuster TV series, and Jay Bonansinga, Stoker Award-finalist and internationally acclaimed author, comes the gripping third novel in this richly woven, page-turning 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 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.

And now, in The Fall of the Governor – Part One, the Governor's descent into madness finally erupts in a tour de force of action and horror. Beloved characters from the comic book, including Rick, Michonne and Glenn, finally make their entrance onto this nightmarish stage, and fans of The Walking Dead will see these characters in a whole new light. Simmering grudges boil over into unthinkable confrontations, battle lines are drawn, and unexpected twists seal the fates of the innocent and guilty alike.

I usually love all things "Walking Dead." However, this book seemed to be cashing in on the popularity of the series. It rehashed an old story line with gore and cruelty. As always the characters are fully realized and well done. The plot was spotty. The writing didn't reach these authors' normal standards Not my favorite of any of the series, whether it be the television show, graphic novels or books.

When I read this book I had the same reaction that I did when I read Road to Woodberry...... I get the impression that the authors did not want to write these books but was contractually obligated to do so.... They both felt forced.. The very first book rise of the governor was the best and remains in that spot.. Also in these other two (later) books.... characters use some of the same mannerisms and speech that Brian, Phillip and Nick used among themselves... Could have used more editing before pub....

The Fall of the Governor part 1 is probably the best Walking Dead novel yet. Much of this is because its the first novel in the series to directly intersect with the comics. Just like the previous novel the story is told through the perspective of various Woodbury residents and The Governor himself. As comic fans know the events that happen to the characters(Prison and Woodbury alike) during this story arc are pretty extreme and seeing them from a Woodbury/Governor perspective only makes them more disturbing.

She grabbed her gun."Alex!!!" she screamed for her friend. He ran in and saw leo and donnie pushing her against the cool hard ground. Leo had a dagger in hand and Donnie was on a testing device. Donnie turned his head to see Alex carrying a sheath and sword. Leo saw Alex heading towards Donnie pointing his gun at Donnie. Leo stood up and stared he grinned. "Well isn't your poor boyfriend" he said crossing arms. Avi had warm tears running down her cheeks. Alex bit his lip "she isn't my girlfriend!" Anger slipped in his throat. Donnie picked up Avi and shoved her into Alex. April walked in staring at Donnie. "What's going on?" She asked Leo with a strict face. Leo didn't respond he just put his head down. April walked over to Avi. Avi turned to her and gave her a soft small hug. April brushed her tears away. Zombies made some noise. Avi looked up and heard the mysterious noise. "ZOMBIES!!!" She screeched. April had horror in her eyes. Leo smelled gas coming from upstairs. "We better go!" He replied giving Avi a glare...a happy one. He walked over and put his finger on her chin. "Until next time" he said getting closer. Avi pushed away groing and cursing under her breath. April put her hand on her shoulder. "Let's go-fast!" She frowned. Part 2 coming soon at res 3 byyyee.
