This is amazing look into how Rapture ends up in turmoil, setting up the beginning of the Bioshock games. I loved hearing the personal details of those who made Rapture what it was and couldn't wait to play the games again soon after listening so as to revisit all those places mentioned in the narrative with a new understanding of how it came to be that way.
I really like the story in this book. If you are a fan of the games this really should be in your queue. There is so much great world building in the series and it's nice to be able to see more of these characters and their city.
However, the performance is borderline unlistenable at times. In a story with so many distinct characters, many of whom possess very distinct accents, it baffles me that they would cast a narrator who did such a poor job performing almost every "character voice" in the book.
So if your as big of a fan as me of the bio shock games then you will love this book. Even if you have never played the games this book is awesome in its own.
I have always loved the power of story telling. When I was younger I was all about movies and now I'm in to books.
It's such a Erie and amazing place that spend some time.
I can't yet I'm still waiting for the second book.
Yes but that's called a spoiler alert.
great to have a satisfying origin story that's more than just fan service. I didn't see anything that broke the cannon arc yet it delved into lots of little details. the book is capable of standing alone and being a good read.
It was incredibly boring... I had a hard time getting into it. I was enamored with the game and the information that this book provides about the pre-story is actually something I welcome; but it is presented in such a boring way. And the Jeffrey Kafer was unable to grasp me at all.
I don't think I will... this was a horrible introduction to his work. Everything seemed rushed and it was hard to really identify with many of the characters. Everything seemed just so... uninteresting.
I have no clue, the first few Mass Effect books have a great narrator. But I'm not sure their name.
Disappointment... I was hoping this would be a good series to continue. Now I feel it was a waste of my money.
I feel regret for myself and anyone who purchases this book.
Excellent book. Very intrest in to see inside a small governed civilization. Damn shame ethics was always lacking but shows what humans would do with no laws.
