I’m a huge fan of Breaking Bad and have been watching it ever since Season 1. So I grabbed this iBook as soon as I heard it was available – and I’m happy to say it has not disappointed. It’s quite a nice little companion book for Breaking Bad fans.
They say a great book draws you in right from the first sentence. Well, this iBook opens with the opening splash screen for the TV series and then goes straight into a short intro video from the series creator himself, Vince Gilligan – who has this to say about the iBook:
This is a look into the world of Breaking Bad that’s in-depth, immersive, and totally new. I think you’re gonna love it.
The photos in the book are great and feature many of the most fascinating characters from throughout the series.
I love this description of the Saul Goodman character:
Saul’s cunning for evading the law is nearly boundless, making him time and again Walt and Jessie’s knight in shining polyester
The book is full of good background and back story information – everything from themes and inspiration for the series to behind-the-scenes secrets and interviews with Gilligan. There are also lots of nice interactive elements, episode title breakdowns, and event timelines.
