The Walking Dead: The Road To Woodbury Review + Giveaway
The Walking Dead – The Road to Woodbury Review
The Road to Woodbury is the 2nd book in The Governor Series and doesn’t heavily follow The Governors story like the 1st book did. This one is mostly about a group of survivors who travel together in Kirkman’s zombie apocalypse as they try to find a safe haven from zombies…and other survivors. It is a third person narrative and mostly focuses on a survivor named Lilly Caul who “wound up in the terrifying thrall of Phillip Blake’s (The Governor) twisted, violent dictatorship within Woodbury’s ever tightening barricades”.
I didn’t enjoy reading The Road to Woodbury as much as I LOVED Rise of the Governor. The character’s were not as well written, the plot was a bit thin and there just wasn’t enough of the evil Governor in The Road to Woodbury to make it a 5/5 read for me! The action (zombie attacks/fights) were the best part of this book and there was no shortage of them and that’s the only reason this book wasn’t rated lower.
I really think The Road to Woodbury felt a tad bit rushed with too many plot holes. So many times I was left thinking “why didn’t any of these people call out so and so on this behavior?” or “why didn’t the writers explore that plot turn more?”. It just felt like character development wasn’t there and most of the creative writing was spent on insignificant things. Bottom line is that The Road to Woodbury felt like a “filler” book to me that wasn’t necessary in the story of The Governor and probably could have been left out of this series.
