Goodreads Book Review - The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury

The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury (The Govenor Trilogy, #2)The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury by Robert Kirkman

My rating: 1 of 5 stars

This book is nominally a sequel to Rise of the Governor; I say nominally because we don't see an of the characters or plot threads from that book until this one is about half over. So in that regard, right off the bat this book disappoints. What about in other regards? To be honest, it isn't very well-written. The characters are deeply stupid and the writing is incredibly repetitive, and that is a bad, bad combination. I lost count of how many times the narration would point out that because of what they were doing, the characters didn't notice walkers around them and suddenly they were in danger. It just got boring and annoying after awhile, as did the poorly developed romances and sudden changes in a character's personality. Honestly, the only reason I could give anyone to read this book is that it provides a bit of back story about some of what goes on in Woodbury... but other than that, there's not much value here. And since even the back story really isn't necessary, you can skip this book entirely.
