It was the end of World War II. FDR's New Deal had redefined American politics. Taxes were at an all-time high. The bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki had created a fear of total annihilation. The rise of secret government agencies and sanctions on business had many watching their backs. America's sense of freedom was diminishing . . . and many were desperate to take that freedom back.Among them was a great dreamer, an immigrant who'd pulled himself from the depths of poverty to become one of the wealthiest and most admired men in the world. That man was Andrew Ryan, and he believed that great men and women deserved better. So he set out to create the impossible: a utopia free from government, from censorship, and from moral restrictions on science, where what you gave was what you got. He created Rapture-the shining city below the sea. But this utopia suffered a great tragedy. This is the story of how it all came to be . . . and how it all ended.

    I love this book because it brought more information and significance to the series.

    Any book the makes me go "awe" at the end is good by me.

    I couldn't make it more than five minutes into this book. The narrator is terrible. The book itself is a fun adaptation of Bioshock's story, and does a great job in depicting the buildup to the conflict within Rapture. Buy the book, though. Unless your voice is more annoying than this narrator
