Breaking Bad Gets Official Interactive eBook

Have you noticed parallels between Breaking Bad character Walt White (played by Bryan Cranston) and Walt Whitman? A new digital book has more about the connection.

Sony Pictures Television and the Breaking Bad creators have published Breaking Bad: Alchemy, an interactive digital book only available on iBookstore. Here’s an excerpt from an essay about “Walt Whitman Parallels” in the new book:

Walt White and Walt Whitman share not only their alliterative initials, but also several parallels in their lives and works. Both men spent the early parts of their lives and careers living lives of quiet desperation as teachers, getting by but not succeeding wildly. After being stifled for many years, each decided to break bad in their fields. For Whitman, that meant creating a new, controversial form of poetry as formally daring as it was sexually provocative.
