A worthwhile read for Breaking Bad fans
on 1 January 2014
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.
