Goodreads Book Review - The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor, Part One

The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor: Part One (The Governor Trilogy #3)The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor: Part One by Robert Kirkman

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This book, and really this series as a whole, proves one thing: all tie-ins are not created equal. However, whereas the first two books in the series were filled with original ideas while they fleshed out a character from the comic and TV series, for the most part this book is just a retelling of the events at Woodbury as they happen in the comic, but with more of a point of view focus on the Woodbury characters. Which is why I gave it two stars while the previous installment just got one from me; all the same flaws of boring repetition are still there, but it's at least more interesting when Rick and co. got involved. The side-plots about Lilly and Austin and Bob and whoever else are just anchors, however, dead weight that should be jettisoned. Or fed to walkers, whichever.
