The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor: Part Two

The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor: Part Two - Jay Bonansinga, Robert Kirkman My full Fall of the Governor Part 2 - The Walking Dead audiobook review can be found at Audiobook Reviewer.

OK, so the has been a bunch of controversy surrounding the last two books of this four book trilogy, I understand that many are angry, hurt, feeling betrayed and the like. But that does not take away from the brilliance of Kirkman and Bonansinga, being able to keep everything far more gruesome than the TV show and yet somehow more satisfying. Fall of the Governor Part 2 picks up immediately where Part One leaves off, almost as if there wasn't a call for the separation of books. A majority of the first half is about the Governor picking himself up and putting himself back together and recovering from the brutally horrific assault that Michonne gave him. While he fights his own internal battle we are gifted with more character coming to light and becoming a large part of the overall story. Bob the drunk actually becomes, against all odds, the Governer's savior. Lilly has struggles of her own to overcome. What I was most surprised about was how different the siege of the prison was compared to the TV show, I only wish the show followed this storyline more. I like how this set of books leaves Rick and the gang out of the picture for the most part. However, if we follow that we know how the battle ends, for the most part, as there are many survivors left to continue on and hopefully Kirkman and Bonansinga will see the need to continue building on and within this superbly planned out universe.
