The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury: The Road to Woodbury

by Robert Kirkman, Jay Bonansinga

St. Martin's Press | June 4, 2013 | Trade Paperback

The Walking Dead: The Road to Woodbury: The Road to Woodbury is rated 4.1538 out of 5 by 13.

The first book explained how the Governor was created; this thrilling sequel to The New York Times bestseller further reveals his ruthless, inhuman conquest of Woodbury

The zombie plague unleashes its horrors on the suburbs of Atlanta without warning, pitting the living against the dead. Caught in the mass exodus, Lilly Caul struggles to survive in a series of ragtag encampments and improvised shelters. But the Walkers are multiplying. Dogged by their feral hunger for flesh and crippled by fear, Lilly relies on the protection of good Samaritans by seeking refuge in a walled-in town once known as Woodbury, Georgia.

At first, Woodbury seems like a perfect sanctuary. Squatters barter services for food, people have roofs over their heads, and the barricade expands, growing stronger every day. Best of all, a mysterious self-proclaimed leader named Philip Blake keeps the citizens in line. But Lilly begins to suspect that all is not as it seems. . . . Blake, who has recently begun to call himself The Governor, has disturbing ideas about law and order.

Ultimately, Lilly and a band of rebels open up a Pandora's box of mayhem and destruction when they challenge The Governor's reign . . . and the road to Woodbury becomes the highway to hell in this riveting follow-up to Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga's New York Times bestselling The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two for Two, Shall We Make it Three? As stated in my review of book one, damn fine writing on par with Stephen King. Zombies aside, thisis some fine stylized writing. Episodic by design, looking forward to book three!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Read way too fast - GREAT BOOK! Ever start reading a book you know your going to love, wanting to read it nice and slow, to savor each and every page, and then end up reading it too darn fast because it's just THAT GOOD?? Now as I sit here writing this review, I am at a loss to describe the emptiness I feel knowing I have just finished the last of the novel series, The Walking Dead, that allowed me to immerse myself in its pages, get to know each character, whether good or bad, and in fact, MAKING me read it too fast to its finale BECAUSE it was just that good. I will miss you, and I will savor the hours of immersion in that very disturbing, believable, world that you afforded me. Oh, and I so recommend it to any one looking for great writing, and nail-biting suspense.

Rated out of 5 by from Hm I've been checking everyday since release as well in my area as well...and still nothing. I went to order it in store, but they talked me out of it (twice), saying that they'd have it in store sooner than if I ordered it. Pretty lame!
Date published: 2012-10-26
Rated out of 5 by from this is some BS; why no store has the book that was released a week ago and is clearly a popular seller is absurd. I've been checking daily and not one store within 100kms has had a copy since the 16th. ANYONE WHO WANTS THIS BOOK SHOULD MAKE THEIR PURCHASE ELSEWHERE REGARDLESS IF CHAPTERS EVENTUALLY GETS THEM (NO ONLINE ORDERS EITHER) BOYCOTT THE COMPANY THATS WILLING TO TELL YOU ITS COMING IN THEIR STORES THE 16th BUT THEN GOES "MEH, I DONT KNOW, ITS THE SUPPLIERS FAULT, THEYRE DELAYED WITH THEIR SHIPMENTS...." BULL -- I'VE SEEN COMMENTS FROM LOTS OF PEOPLE ONLINE SAYING THE COPY THEY ORDERED ONLINE HAS ALREADY ARRIVED AT THEIR HOUSE ... SO THIS IS A CHAPTERS PROBLEM. F CHAPTERS!

Rated out of 5 by from I've gone to multiple Chapters and none of them have this product.. It was supposed to be out October 16th, it's the 19th Now. I ordered it online but still haven't gotten anything.

About the Book

Building on the groundbreaking comic book series, television show, and the "New York Times"-bestselling novel "Rise of the Governor," this riveting sequel delves into Philip Blake's ascension as the leader of Woodbury.

Read from the Book

 ONENo one in the clearing hears the biters coming through the high trees.The metallic ringing noises of tent stakes going into the cold, stubborn Georgia clay drowns the distant footsteps—the intruders still a good five hundred yards off in the shadows of neighboring pines. No one hears the twigs snapping under the north wind, or the telltale guttural moaning noises, as faint as loons behind the treetops. No one detects the trace odors of putrid meat and black mold marinating in feces. The tang of autumn wood smoke and rotting fruit on the mid-afternoon breeze masks the smell of the walking dead.In fact, for quite a while, not a single one of the settlers in the burgeoning encampment registers any imminent danger whatsoever—most of the survivors now busily heaving up support beams hewn from found objects such as railroad ties, telephone poles, and rusty lengths of rebar.“Pathetic … look at me,” the slender young woman in the ponytail comments with an exasperated groan, crouching awkwardly by a square of paint-spattered tent canvas folded on the ground over by the northwest corner of the lot. She shivers in her bulky Georgia Tech sweatshirt, antique jewelry, and ripped jeans. Ruddy and freckled, with long, deep brown hair that dangles in tendrils wound with delicate little feathers, Lilly Caul is a bundle of nervous tics, from the constant yanking of stray wisps of hair back behind her ears to the compulsive gnawing of fingernails. Now, with her small hand she clutches the h

Editorial Reviews

"An entertaining read." -ComicBookMovie.com"The novel fleshes out . . . backstories and connects them, giving depth to people who remained largely mysteries in the comic books. For comic book readers, the novel is full of easter eggs and surprise connections, making it not only entertaining, but necessarily for filling in the gaps left by the comic books . . . 'The Road to Woodbury' is an essential read for any fan of 'The Walking Dead'." -Examiner.com"Zombie-apocalypse stories are perfect for miserable winter weather regardless, but for those obsessed with The Walking Dead (such as yours truly), this is essential reading. This is the epitome of a page-turner, and makes subway rides just breeze by. And, that end -woof." -REFINERY29 on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor"An excellent companion to the The Walking Dead comic books. The story is enriched by the novel format, and the characterization of the series' most hated villain is something no fan will want to miss." -Examiner.com on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor"This book stands alone and is a compelling read for fans of the series or just fans of zombies. Watch out though, because once you get a taste of the particular Kirkman brand of zombie mayhem, catching up on past issues is just around the corner." -The Ossuary on The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor"The story makes a great novel. You'll get sucked in and can easily visualize everything that is happening. It's simply a great read." -Comicvine.com on Th
