Library Book: The Walking Dead Volume 2: Miles Behind Us
So yes, after writing that last blog post, I immediately started reading The Walking Dead Volume 2: Miles Behind Us. It picks up pretty much exactly where Volume 1 left off. Rick and company are finally breaking camp in search of a safer place to live. They pack up the RV and begin their search.
They first find a gated neighbourhood which seems perfect. There's lots of canned goods and the houses are big; every family will have a good life. Well, that plan is interrupted when they realize the whole place is infested with the undead! The group escapes, but not without casualties.
They spend a week foraging, desperately looking for things to eat when Carl, Rick's boy gets shot. The perpetrator, a scared individual named Otis, thought they were zombies; he brings them to his friend's place. His friend Hershel is a veterinarian and is able to save Carl's life. He invites everyone to stay until Carl is better. But relations between the Rick's group and Hershel's family start to deterioriate when Rick discovers the undead Hershel is keeping in his barn....
The Walking Dead: Miles Behind Us was another excellent read by Robert Kirkman. I'm looking forward to whenever I'm able to read the next volume!
*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.
