The kids in my class had given me scads of Amazon gift certificates for Teacher Appreciation Week, so I was looking for books to fill up my Kindle and enjoy reading during the nice summer break. As a relative late-comer to the zombie experience (reading about them, that is), I’ve explored many books in the genre over the past few months. Most were awful, some were OK, and a few were downright great.
I’ve enjoyed most of the classic zombie movies over the years, but have never read an illustrated book about them. This meant I missed out on The Walking Dead until it appeared on my television. I enjoyed it for the most part, but have no real interest in reading graphic novels. However, since it appeared that Rise of the Governor was a normal-style novella, I bought it. I’ve hesitated reading it, in fear that I will spoil Season 3 of TWD when it airs in the fall.
Please don’t spoil anything with your answer to my question: If I read about the governor, is it likely to diminish my enjoyment of the TV series?
