Library Book: The Walking Dead Volume 6: This Sorrowful Life
The Walking Dead Volume 6: This Sorrowful Life was a bit of a let down. Rick, Glenn and Michonne were all taken prisoner by the governor of Woodbury. Rick lost his hand, Michonne was tortured, and Glenn was largely left alone. In Woodbury, they stage fights to the death in an arena filled with zombies, and the governor said he'd be sending Rick into the arena once his arm healed up. But when the opportunity arose, it wasn't Rick who went into the arena but Michonne.
Anyway, This Sorrowful Life is all about escape. The three of them need to escape Woodbury and the governor. In some ways it was relatively predictable, which lessened my enjoyment. And where Volume 5 had some nasty stuff in it, Volume 6 actually showed some rather nasty stuff (not everything, mind you, but way too much for my liking). So overall this one wasn't my favourite by any stretch of the imagination.
But it did end on a real cliffhanger, so I'm going to get the next volumes from the library as soon as I can.
*As of September 24/15, I am not taking any more requests from authors to read their books. I currently have too many books to read. I'll update this if/when that changes.*
I currently have 164 fiction books just sitting in my room to read (although that doesn't stop me from randomly picking books up at work or buying them on Kindle!). I've been keeping track of them on a paper list for years. This blog shares what I read as I attempt to get "the List" down to a more manageable number.
If you'd like to know what books are on the List, check out my Goodreads shelf devoted to them - it's my physical list digitized! I've also got a shelf for every book I've reviewed here on this blog.
Not everything I review here is actually on the List. Some books come from the library, some books are nonfiction (which are not included on the List), some books are on my Kindle (which have never been included on the List), and some books are given to me by friends and family.
Note: as of April 12/14, I am not going to add the *spoiler* warning I used to when I'm giving away details of books. I want to talk about the books I've read in whatever detail I'd like. So if you haven't read a book I'm reviewing, you might not want to read the review.
