  • I am obsessed with The Walking Dead.That's right. I said it. OBSESSED. I own the entire series, and I make it a point to buy it as soon as I see it hit the shelf. When the latest season isn't airing (IS IT OCTOBER YET?!), I binge watch the show from start to finish—once a month. (And no, I don't think that's excessive at all. My family on the other hand well, that's a different story.) I've watched it so much, I've unintentionally memorized pretty much all of the dialogue. We have a TWD trivia [...]



  • I didn't really know what I was getting into when I picked this book up since I only watched a few minutes of one of the episodes, but I sure am glad I did pick it up.Paul Vigna from the Wall Street Journal knows how to review and analyze a show so that you really get engrossed in what you are reading. Walkling Dead fans should really pick this book up.It makes me want to watch the show (past,present, and future).


  • I read this before, while and after watching episode 100 of this popular television show, of which I have read some of the novels based on it, all of the compendiums that I know about and the after show The Talking Dead. Yeah, I’m a fan. The zombie apocalypse is the setting ofThe Walking Dead story, rather than its antagonist. Mostly, zombies are avoidable, it’s other humans living in different sociological groups that are the antagonists. Also, there is a lot in here about religion, lack of [...]


  • Fun read despite some glaring mistakes (Tara was holed up with her sister, NIECE (not nephew) and father). Would have been nice to have had some photos but otherwise, interesting for fans like myself.


  • As a huge fan of the comics and the tv show, I loved this book. A great look at the making of the tv show, how it correlates with the comics, and break downs of episodes. Thank you so much for writing this book. Hope another one is in the works for future episodes.


  • I would like to first thank Dey Street Books and for this free advanced reader copy of Guts to read and review. This book is a must for any and all Walking Dead fans. This book takes you through all 7 seasons leading up to the premiere of season 8 (October 2017). Each section starts with a recap of 1 of the seasons followed by 2 chapters that dig deep into parts of the history and culture of the show. There are interviews and quotes from actors as well as behind the scenes people from the show. [...]


  • Guts : The Anatomy Of The Walking Dead is a guide of everything that celebrates the show, the characters and why The Walking Dead has such a huge following. As Paul Vigna digs into the Guts of what has made The Walking Dead so popular with story lines, characters and why this has turned into a huge TV hit show. You get a detailed season recap from the very first episode to the seventh season finale, you are able to dive more into what really made some episode really stand out for what happens wi [...]


  • I love the opinions of the author, and recaps of the whole series so far! There was explanations for behind the scenes stuff and how the author met some of the walking dead characters/actors at walking con! It was really awesome to see how much the Walking Dead related too real life and how many different ways it can be interpreted from scholars, to fans! Still love the Walking dead and this is a great book to read for any fan!! The author does warn of spoilers if you haven’t watched all the s [...]


  • Pretty good quick read. Not too much I didn’t know about The Walking Dead but entertaining otherwise. I was at Walker Stalker Con in Charlotte but I would like to mention that the actors aren’t really there for fans.unless you want to shell out 40 bucks (the cheapest) for an autograph. If you want Jesus or Abraham then you are paying 60 to 80. I don’t want people to fall in the same trap I did. Pay 50 to get in and then have to shell out that much. Not a great experience.


  • Fans of the Walking Dead already know the show isn't really about the zombies. It's the characters, and the persistent question, what would you do if the world ended as we know it? I enjoyed this analysis of the cultural, psychological, religious, and philosophical messages and dilemmas of the show. The author, a writer for the Wall Street Journal, took this book seriously. I appreciated that, and I tore through it like a zombie through brains (haha, couldn't resist).


  • This is a signed copy from NYCC 2017. I got to meet the author and talk with him which always makes the books more enjoyable. I am obsessed with The Walking Dead and this was so neat to see other perspectives of people and their thoughts on this show. He does a lot of research, way more I would ever do so to ready the stats and things he found out is interesting. Also, I did miss a few little things in the show that this book definitely pointed out to me.


  • Fantastic analysis for one of my favorite shows, but not sure how it would play if you were not already a fan of The Walking Dead. The author is going to be so sad with Season 8's midseason finale, I wish he and I could text about it.






  • My oldest daughter is a HUGE fan, never missing an episode of The Walking Dead. I am giving her this book and she is so excited. I am sure she will devour it from cover to cover. I won a copy of this book during a giveaway. I am under no obligation to leave a review or rating and do so voluntarily. I am paying it forward by passing this book along to a family member who I know will enjoy it too.
