My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This one was a little boring because of the overlap with the main events from the comic(/show), and at times it was frustrating that the characters just blindly followed the Governor even when his behaviour was extreme.
However, it was interesting to read it from the other side of the conflict, and get an idea of how other groups where handling the pressures of the walker plague.
The writing is great in general, fast paced, and flows well. There was a bit of repetition that could’ve been edited out, such as how often we needed to read about the morning/afternoon/evening air. Without revealing anything, I will say that I was pretty sure the continuous mention of something else made me think it was going to be a major plot point but wasn’t. I supposed it might be in the next book, but if it’s not, then this is an example of the unnecessary repetition.
