'The Walking Dead': Exclusive audio from the new book -- NSFW

Walking-Dead-4-05.jpg

The fourth and final installment in Robert Kirkman and Jay Bonansinga’s Governor-related Walking Dead book series will be available next Tuesday when The Walking Dead: The Fall of the Governor, Part Two is released in both print and audiobook formats. The novel will feature the final face-off between Rick Grimes and Philip Blake, and you can get your first taste right here and right now with a clip from the Macmillian audiobook version read by Fred Berman.

But be warned! This clip not only features massive zombie and human carnage — as evidenced by lines like “ragged bodies collapsing in a synchronized line dance of death” — but also some major NSFW language. Like, we’re talking multiple uses of multiple curse words. So grab some headphones and prepare yourself for a harrowing alley encounter between the living and the undead that may or may not end with a bit of nostril stabbing.

Here’s the official description: “Twelve people dead, in the space of a few hours. Five murderers: neighbors, relatives, friends. All of them so normal. All of them seemingly harmless. All of them now dead by their own hand…except one. And that one has no answers to offer the shattered town. She doesn’t even know why she killed—or whether she’ll do it again.”

It’s the kind of page-turner that you’ll probably want to read while it’s still light outside. (Or maybe that’s just me who was totally creeped out—in a good way—by the haunting story that unfolds.) Here, Wasserman answers some of my (spoiler free!) burning questions and talks about her inspiration for the novel (hint: Stephen King).
