Rise of the Governor followed the pre-Woodbury experiences of Philip Blake, the infamous Governor of Woodbury, Georgia, in the early days of the zombie apocalypse. In The Road to Woodbury, the Governor tries to maintain control of his minions as he struggles with the duality of his personality.
This book follows the star-crossed adventures of a small group of survivors who start out in a doomed tent city and eventually make their way to Woodbury. If you're a fan of the comics, you will find discrepancies in the backstories of some of the characters in this book. The leading character is Lilly Caul, an insecure, fear-addled young woman who joined the tent city after the death of her father.
She has found a protector in Josh Lee Hamilton, a giant of a man who was a well-known chef in pre-zombie times. Josh portrays the stereotypical "magical Negro" character that has become a familiar horror-story trope for example, Duncan in Stephen King's Green Mile.
After Lilly and Josh are forced to leave the camp under unfortunate circumstances, they hit the road accompanied by Bob, an alcoholic ex-military medic; Lilly's friend, Meghan, a druggie who has begun using her body as a means of income; and Scott, Meghan's stoner boyfriend.
We follow their short road trip as they meet up with a few zombies, confront the Governor's thugs, and arrive in Woodbury, where the find Governor in the early stages of his rule over the ragtag population.
From their first moments in Woodbury, Lilly and Josh sense that bad things are happening behind the scenes, and of course they are absolutely correct. This book doesn't have the punch that Rise of the Governor had. That book was a grim but fascinating study of the development of a major Walking Dead character.
This book deals with supporting characters, and it doesn't provide many details about their pasts, so we don't always know what is driving them to do the things they do.
Lilly's rebellious actions near the end of the book seem to come out of nowhere. All along, she's been a relatively passive creature, living most of the time in crippling fear.
Then, all of a sudden, she dreams up a revolutionary plan and talks some relatively tough characters into following along with her—all of which comes across as highly improbable. I listened to the audiobook as well as reading the print version, and I highly recommend the audio version.
Fred Berman does a great job of telling the story—differentiating the voices and emphasizing the suspense, tension, and horror of the frequently graphic situations.
Fans of Walking Dead will want to read the book just for the bits of back story on Lilly, the Governor, and others even though they frequently contradict the comics.
As is always true in Walking Dead stories, this one overflows with seriously gory graphic violence and dark acts of brutality. It's not for the faint of heart, but if you're at all squeamish, you wouldn't be reading Walking Dead books anyhow—right?
