I did not know that.I suppose we could cut Jay a little slack. It must be hard writing someone else's story.

Agree not the best writing, but I wouldn't say it's bad. I have about 30 pages left of Road, and I've enjoyed it thoroughly, about as much as Rise.
These novels are absolute must reads if you are a WD fan, especially a comic WD fan.
I agree, I especially think Rise is imperative to read if you've read through the comics. The story is very strong in that book. I liked Road too; I think it starts a little slow, then gets really good, then sort of coasts to the end after that. It didn't have the suspense and excitement of the first book, but was still a very interesting read, and it's intriguing to see how Woodbury is developed. The only thing about Road that I really didn't like was the ending, or the 'epilogue' or whatever. I didn't think it made much sense, but it did get me excited for the third book.

I consider myself an avid reader, and always have a book I am actively reading. When I read the two novels I thought they were pretty good, but Rise was my least favorite of the two. I did not realize why until reading this thread. It's the adjectives! There's a scene in Rise that is so gruesome and vile. I read it while eating dinner one night. I had to put the tacos away. It made my stomach turn. Uggggh.
So yeah, nasty taste in my mouth about that one.
