New Customer Review - The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor

The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor
by Robert Kirkman [Kirkman]

The story by itself was alright but when added to the Walking Dead universe it feels very lacking. The awkward third person present tense narrative adds to the confused atmosphere of the novel -- at times I like it and think it adds dimension; at many other places though it's just plain odd. I have read all the comics and they are thematic masterpieces, I had hoped a written format would add to the awsomeness, against my hopes however it fell flat. The twist ending was in a few words was disapointing, odd, against all previous character developments, and just plain stupid. If you discounted the Walking Dead comics tie in it would work, I do not however feel it worked here. For die hard Walking Dead comics fans or someone who is just looking for a good undead action story. -- review submitted by Wyatt P. - a customer of the Gere Branch Library
