Summary

Arthur Winter, his wife, and daughter move to Rapture with the promise of a better life, and more importantly a new start. He intends to work hard and one day be wealthy just like Ryan promises everyone who moves to Rapture.

He opens a small business. For a few years things are good, almost idyllic.

The good life is shattered when one day his daughter mysteriously vanishes without a trace.

The police of Rapture don't seem to want to help.

So Arthur sets out to find her himself.

He is lead down into a seedy underworld that exists below the upmarket facade of Rapture.

But can he find her in time?

Good Fan fiction, but only if you played the games

This is overall a good, albeit a short audiobook that is worth purchasing if you are a BioShock fan. To get the most out of this story you should have already finished BioShock 1 and 2. Or alternatively just watch the whole story explained somewhere on YouTube. This is a good fanfiction, wish there was more.

Every little girl needs a big daddy

Would you consider the audio edition of Rapture: The Big Daddy to be better than the print version?

Yes, it very easy and very useful than print version

What did you like best about this story?

The author made me feel as though I was experiencing a completely new kind of criminal underworld that was wonderfully depicted by the author's own captivating and brilliant imagination. The plot is unlike any that I've read before and I was glued to the book the whole time.

Any additional comments?

I recommend this small story as it really gives a good description of Rapture's corrupted society. It was also nice to see small references to the characters and areas found in the first game.

Overall it was a fun book to read. If you love Bioshock. You might like this.

Absolutely awesome

Where does Rapture: The Big Daddy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Definently in the top 3.

What did you like best about this story?

The amazingly written story from the perspective of an ordinary citizen in Rapture. A great tale about Arthur Winter brilliantly weaved into the Bioshock lore.

Which character – as performed by Steve White – was your favorite?

The protaganist Arthur Winter without a doubt.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, but for the sake of spoilers I won't mention it.

Any additional comments?

Get it! (Also Dustin, please get the other Rapture books available for audio! Ordered the paperback versions but I'd love to be able to listen to them as well!)

Bit Short

Wasn't a bad book, but it was pretty short. Like a side short story of the big Daddy's of Rapture.

Good story if you enjoy the series

Good book and good story. A little slow at first and towards the end it all snowballs together quickly. Overall good story and entertaining if you like the series.
