Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

There are a lot of books out there that say they are the unofficial companion guides to whatever television series, but let me say up front, Ensley F. Guffey and K. Dale Koontz have found the perfect formula. Wanna Cook? is the primer for how those books should be written. --Glenn Walker, BIFF BAM POP

Présentation de l'éditeur

'I am not in danger ...I am the danger.' With those words, Breaking Bad's Walter White solidified himself as TV's greatest antihero. Wanna Cook? explores the most critically lauded series on television with analyses of the individual episodes and ongoing storylines. From details like stark settings, intricate camerawork, and jarring music to the larger themes, including the roles of violence, place, self-change, legal ethics, and fan reactions, this companion book is perfect for those diehards who have watched the Emmy Award - winning series multiple times as well as for new viewers. Wanna Cook? elucidates without spoiling, and illuminates without nit-picking. A must have for any fan's collection.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Wanna Cook? Gotta Have 8 mai 2014
Par Allen Smalling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This wonderful book has a somewhat misleading title. Despite its ample size (434 pages), WANNA COOK? THE COMPLETE, UNOFFICIAL COMPANION TO BREAKING BAD is not, nor was it intended to be, a 'Complete' compendium of trivia about the groundbreaking AMC show. For example, while each chapter deals with a new episode, they don't list each and every song in the series -- for that, you can go to IMDb dot com and get the info. for free. The book's 'Unofficial' designation is somewhat undercut by the inclusion of an interview with Michael Slovis, cinematographer for most of the show's episodes.

However, the rest of the title pays off handsomely. WANNA COOK? is indeed a powerful 'Companion' to BREAKING BAD, and a celebration too: a kind of follow-up course in what authors Ensley Guffey and Dale Koontz find interesting, and I'm guessing you will too. Certainly it's leagues above the common "fan book" cooked up (excuse me) in response to a hit show or movie. Instead of documenting every soundtrack song, the authors talk about a few that particularly interest them, such as the esoteric but witty use of the Italian song "Crapa Pelada" ("Bald Head") by the postwar pop group *Quartetto Cetra* to refer to central character Walter White and his hair loss from chemotherapy. In over sixty chapters the authors have an unerring knack of answering questions we have about the show -- even those we haven't thought to ask yet. To me, the discussion of "Uncle" Salamanca's bell and how its presence is echoed by similar sound effects is worth the price of the book. What do federal prosecutors mean by a "Queen for a Day" plea? How and why are lawyers allowed to advertise? What are the psychological preconditions that make an individual "break bad" anyway, with higher and higher levels of violence? How were the special effects obtained, and of what symbolic purpose are the photographic effects -- tinted lenses and such? All this is assembled by two highly-educated authors who have (let's not mince words) close to an obsession about this show -- and bless them for it!

The effect of this is to make WANNA COOK? compulsively readable. I found it anything but dull, even when the authors were holding forth on topics I strenuously disagree with. (They think time-lapse photography is enchanting; I think it's a visual cliché in the making.) But never mind -- see all of BREAKING BAD if you haven't already, because this book is not a Cliff's Notes to help you fill in missing episodes but an open door to an even greater appreciation of this seminal series. Guffey and Koontz try strenuously to avoid plot spoilers but really some giveaways are close to inevitable in a thoughtful book like this. After WANNA COOK? you may well want to see the whole series again. Soon you'll be telling friends and fans about the nature of Junior's disability, how the trick shot of Jesse's heroin high was achieved and just generally, why BREAKING BAD is so good. And that ain't bad at all. As of now, the offering price puts it in the same league as much thinner books on the subject.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely Essential for Any BrBa Fan 5 mai 2014
Par Andru J. Reeve - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I approached this book with great trepidation, thinking it might be yet another quickie cash-in. Thankfully, this is everything I hoped it would be, and so much more. Not only is it a handy and informative episode guide, this hefty tome also delivers several insightful essays on what will soon be universally regarded as The Greatest Television Show In The History of The Medium. I cannot comprehend ANY fan of the show being disappointed with this well-researched, beautifully-assembled companion to Breaking Bad. Highly-recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Well worth the wait!! 21 avril 2014
Par D. J. Murphy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
The book came out long after Breaking Bad wrapped last year, but I am delighted with it, and like the previous reviewer, it made me want to watch the series again, and I am doing so.
The author breaks down each episode with interesting details, but very few spoilers. In addition to notable insights into each episode, it provides fascinating information on such subjects as chemistry, air traffic controlling, law enforcement, health insurance and so forth. It seems to be well-researched and informed, and is quite humorous in places. If you love Breaking Bad, you will Love this book!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Book! Best I have found on Breaking Bad 23 avril 2015
Par Genie Angel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I am fascinated about hidden meanings and other people's take on what is happening in each episode. I was a latecomer to the series, I watched all 5 seasons in a month on Netflix. Each time I watched an episode I read the accompanying chapter. Each chapter assumes that is where you have watched up until and does not have spoilers. Then there are a few chapters that relate to the series as a whole and these have spoilers, so you simply read them after you're done with the series. Fun and comprehensive.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Good Companion Book to "Breaking Bad" But Not the Best One 30 décembre 2014
Par QUOKKA_54 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is rather a long book so this might be a long review: The book is an in depth analysis of the TV series "Breaking bad", and if you're reading this you are at least familiar with some of the series. The book discusses many aspects of the series: the character motivations, emotions and decisions, motives, both hidden and overt, and so on. The book is not too bad, discusses many aspects in depth, but is not the definitive book on the series, which I have not found yet and am still looking for.

It's no wonder so many people have become so deeply enmeshed with the characters, as the series spanned 5 years and 62 episodes - since the characters are so relatable, the drama so innovative, and the subject matter (of the illegal meth business) so provocative, it seems to fascinate a great many people on so many levels. It is one of the few "criminal dramas" (although this is somewhat like describing World war 2 as a "regional conflict") were you actually find yourself rooting for the good guy and the bad guy, sometimes even in the same episode. No other TV show could be so emotionally involving as "Breaking Bad".

Every episode in the series goes to many levels - including the obvious good vs. bad, the symbolic, and even at the subliminal/subconscious level. The actors, and creator Vince Gilligan do not explain the reason for every nuance of the story and the character motivation - they don't have to. Because much of the time it's left to the viewer to interpret meaning and motivation. Every episode of the show is made with considerable acuity, as the show never talks down or tries to moralize, nor does it try to tell you what to think. The series itself is so packed with drama, pathos, parody, and irony each episode could practically have a book of its own...and every author I've read so far who's tried to write about it has only managed to skim the surface of the entire meaning of it.

Because there are so many levels to the characters and their stories, it seems to be beyond the ability of most authors to write a really satisfying companion book to "Breaking Bad". Sooner or later perhaps someone will write the ultimate companion book - in the meantime, this book is close enough for now. A good read and well worth a look.
