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