Seven out of ten.

The remaining survivors find refuge in a prison. However, living together may prove more difficult than living with the undead...

Review by

The group led by Rick have found a prison to secure themselves against the Walking Dead. But life is not peaches and cream. Some members of the group die, by zombies or humans or even by their own hand. Michonne shows up and asks for refuge, and Rick is voted out of the leadership because of some drastic actions he has been forced to take. The writing is notable for delving into the ethics and reality of the hard choices that a Zombie apocalypse would bring about, and thus the series is far more textured and complex that the various movies that only deal with Zombieland at its beginning.

Kirkman is great at plot and cliffhangers. Don't start reading this series if you don't want to feel like you have to keep reading it forever. You just can't stop. I have the same gripe as I had with the first collection- the dialogue can be pretty bad. If I'm talking to someone, I don't feel the need to say their name every other sentence. There are also some minor spelling errors. Other than that, this is exceptional zombie fare.

I didn't like this one as much as the first hardcover. I think it does a good job of portraying what this type of zombie apocalypse would do to one's sanity though, and how different people would react to this new messed-up world. Lori and Rick started to really annoy me (she is constantly screaming and bitching about everything; he's always running around doing whatever he wants without thinking about the consequences at all), so I was really happy that several new characters were brought in to shake things up. I'm looking forward to seeing how the second season of The Walking Dead translates these new events. Most of this book takes place in a prison compound so I'm thinking they'll probably continue to tweak the story line quite a bit to keep things exciting and interesting enough for TV. Looking forward to it!

Review by

After finding a prison the group hopes that their major problems surviving will end. They have shelter, food, and some semblance of safety. However, once the zombies are removed from the equation the group is still far from safe. The story line is more intense and the stakes are raised in the second installment of this zombie series. The limits of human survival are pushed when it is not the walking dead that are the imminent threat, but the person standing next to you.
