A desire is a hunger, a craving, a preoccupation, and an internal aim for an external conquest. A desire, when broken down to one word, is a wish. No one has ever taught us how to desire. You can accomplish desire without practicing. Sickness and even old age do not diminish desire; they just change what we desire. To stop desiring we would have to be in a complete vegetative or meditative state, and even then we would have to desire not to desire.

A baby girl desires milk, a little girl desires acceptance, a woman desires affection and an older woman desires assistance. A baby boy desires a toy, a little boy desires a friend, a man desires a woman, and an old man desires a legacy. It does not matter our gender or our age, we all have desires. But, if our desires at age 40 are the same as our desires at age 10, then something is retarded about our desires.

Now that we are saved, our desires should be different from when we were not saved. This series will help you assess your desires and think about Why We Want What We Want.

    " Even as things get increasingly complicated and terrible, I still want to read these... WHY??? lol "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 2/15/2014

    " The adventure continues as a whole bunch of people die and one new (and extremely fun) character arrives to the prison sanctuary. I can't ever imagine this series getting boring... "

    " Zombies are fun--mainly because of their contemporary cultural symbolic potential and because they eat brains and other body parts raw. I am a fan of the TV show, so I thought I'd take a look at the comics--especially since Watchmen was exceptionally good. This series is not so much. The TV show is better by far--which I don't want to say since I am a print guy from the start. I also read the first three, and all of them fall short of expectations after I started watching the show. I'll be not reading the rest for a while--but mainly not to spoil the surprises the show might pick up from the comics. I also have to agree with previous readers that Kirkman has a very large issue with women, for whom he does not appear to care greatly. On one hand, what can we expect? The guy draws comics for a living, certainly the dream job of a fourteen-year-old. On the other hand, the whole culture is in a massive backlash against women on all levels, much to my disappointment and disgust. On the third hand, which is possible in a zombie world, Kirkman may grow up eventually when he has grandchildren, which seems to be when most men who finally do get it finally do get it. There is hope. He's creative. He works hard. And he does seem to want to be liked. All of that will generate growth even in a world where being compassionate and mature is not the goal of most humans, even those who aren't pursuing us to take a bite from our flesh. "

    " There were some awesome moments in this one, mainly when all the fighting was taking place and when judgement was being wrought, but the relationship side of this volume was a bit cheesy in places. Carol's character is just bizarre and seems so out of place with the rest of the story. Maybe that's why they haven't put her in the show (yet). Still awesome though! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nissa | 1/8/2014

    " The relationships between these characters just keep evolving, and this volume had some major shifts. There is really a lot of anger and distrust between everyone here, and I have to wonder if I'd be like that under the circumstances. That much anger takes a lot of energy to keep up - is it doing any of them any good? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Kennedy | 1/2/2014

    " #4 in the series, same as first three. Nothing mind blowing, but interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David De | 1/1/2014

    " Lots of conflict among the group. Nothing major among the roamers, but plenty of dialogue among everyone. Skeletons are revealed and relationships are changed. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zach | 1/1/2014

    " The ending of this graphic novel is one of the finest moments in "The Walking Dead" series so far. Once again, the author keeps the human drama at the forefront and succeeds in spinning another compelling yarn. Kudos. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/23/2013

    " My least favorite of the series so far, but still pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cassie | 12/15/2013

    " Interesting to see how the group dynamic falls apart and corrects itself. Sometimes Kirkman kind of veers into melodrama, but he's great at creating tension and each issue always leaves me wanting more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karl | 1/17/2013

    " 4th volume of Walking Dead series, great shape. $4. "

    " ditto what i said for Vol 3 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meezan Ali Mir | 10/2/2011

    " One of the defining moments of the whole series comes towards the end of this volume. As compared to the other volumes its a little stale but it all comes together towards the end. My favorite volume up-till now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mr Bootle | 3/10/2011

    " More about the relationships that have formed and have formed in the new society they have set up. Get's better near the end and Michonne is a very intriguing character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charlene | 12/21/2010

    " Poor Rick. If they thought comic book Rick was crazy they should have met TV show Rick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Malinda | 12/16/2010

    " Did not like this one as much as the first 3. It is getting boring now that it seems to be all about killing zombies or each other and having sex. I have peeked at the next book and am not sure I am going to continue with the series. Again, tons of violence and less of a storyline. We shall see. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matt | 7/16/2010

    " When I buy one of these books I now have to set aside the proper amount of time to read it in one sitting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shayna L | 3/5/2010

    " Except for getting a little soap opera-ish, this is up to par with the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracie | 3/2/2010

    " Just read this one during my lunch break, and, seriously, I can't say this enough: I cannot wait for this television series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Unsolved Mystery | 2/28/2010

    " So far, I don't care too much for the books of The Walking Dead, although, I absolutely love the TV version. "
