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.

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.

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

Very interesting facts about the best TV series ever produced by the Americans. Deals with each series and the characters, plot development and adds lots of little known facts to the story. A good read.

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.

I bought this as part of my boyfriends Father's Day present. We are currently watching the final series so my partner thought it would be safe to starting reading it straight away. Beware, this was to the case as it did indicate whAt was to happen. Like previous reviews mentioned here, the book isn't that big, but it looks a good read and can't wait to read it myself.

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.

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.

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 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).
