4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile read for Breaking Bad fans
I'm sure in time there will be many books that will dissect the brilliant TV show Breaking Bad, but for now this is one of the first to hit the shelves. Although it's not that big/long - comparable in size to the BFI movie/tv books, albeit with no photos - this book still manages to cover quite a lot of ground. Each chapter is relatively short - usually only half a dozen...

3.0 out of 5 stars Breaking Bad reference book
Being a big fan of Breaking Bad I bought this to see what the author had to say
Sadly nothing much original in the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile read for Breaking Bad fans, 1 Jan. 2014
By 
This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
I'm sure in time there will be many books that will dissect the brilliant TV show Breaking Bad, but for now this is one of the first to hit the shelves. Although it's not that big/long - comparable in size to the BFI movie/tv books, albeit with no photos - this book still manages to cover quite a lot of ground. Each chapter is relatively short - usually only half a dozen pages or less. There are chapters dedicated to an overview of each season (right up to the finale) which although don't go into an episode-by-episode breakdown, still manage to cover the important events and making any relevant points. Other chapters cover all the major characters (including fan favourites Saul Goodman and Mike), BB's top 10 most memorable moments, the top 10 best lines of dialogue, and even one refuting the unfair backlash against the character of Skyler White. Considering this book came out so soon after BB finished it makes quite a lot of good points and makes for an interesting read. I'm sure there will be other books that go even more in-depth with the show, but for the time being - and especially for it's price - this is definitely worth picking up if you're a BB fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars The icing on the cake, 19 Feb. 2014

Those who have rated 'Breaking Bad' as one of the best shows to ever hit the small screen will love this reminder of the characters and plot lines. It is a pretty straightforward recount of the who, the what and the how with excellent summaries of the action episode by episode throughout all 5/6 seasons. It goes deep enough into the minds and motivations of the principals without unnecessary psychobabble. A great memento for those of us coming to terms with the fact that it's all over.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT READ, 24 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
This really is a great book. It offers a concise overview of the show, from the plot development to the production, whilst gently offering opinions on Breaking Bad's themes and messages.

Perhaps as importantly, it's written with a concision and wit that makes it fun to read - no need to reach for the thesaurus here - and before you know it you've powered through it and it's finished, much like the show itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a read, 2 May 2014

This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
Actually some pretty decent character write ups. A good read but it does have spoilers in it so don't read till you have finished watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought as a present, ended up reading it myself, 14 Mar. 2014

This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
I bought this as a present for my brother who's a much bigger Breaking Bad fan than I am, however I flicked through it upon arrival and ended up reading it front to back.

It's not as thick as anticipated, but covers the entire programme in detail. It does go beyond the show in some areas but is generally a decent revision of what you see on screen.

4.0 out of 5 stars breaking my expectations, 16 Nov. 2013

Pleasantly surprised; this review is worth a read at this price if only to serve as a reminder of how enjoyable the details of the show were.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reminis the bliss of Br Ba, 21 Jan. 2015

Feeling lost and anxious realising that 62 was the end I needed one more fix before life returned to normality. Eric San Juan ignites the memories and reminds us that we have witnessed television history never to be repeated ( apart from repeat viewing!) thanks

This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
A very good book which takes you through the series and reminds you of events and gives commentary and reasoning for Walt's gradual degradation. My only complaint, it was so good I finished it too quickly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reliving Breaking Bad, 11 Mar. 2014
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book takes us through step by step, season by season, character by character through the consequences of Walter White's decision to break bad. It gives you a chance to relive the best television show ever broadcast and gain a stronger understanding of Walt's manipulations of others and his dark character that was there for all to see from the very beginning, if you just opened your eyes and looked. Great book to accompany a great show

This review is from: Breaking Down Breaking Bad: Unpeeling the Layers of Television's Greatest Drama (Paperback)
this is a good read for any Breaking Bad fans. only one slight criticism in that it doesn't go into detail about some the characters (Hank, Marie, Saul).
