Comment: After reading the first I immediatly wanted to continue with the second book in this series. The group is back on the road again and ends up at a farm, where they meet Hershel and his family. New characters are introduced, but like the first novel most characters are pretty one-dimensional. And this story went so fast, that there wasn't any room for character development. There were some new relationships, like Dale and Andrea (pretty weird if you know the show) and Glenn and Maggie. I still love the graphics and I like the fact that it's in black and white. I think it might be to gruesome if it was in color. And like the first one I liked the story, because it picks up where the first one left of. I do prefer the first book over this one. And I also think the TV-show is better then the books.
Rating: 3/ 5
