Publisher's 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 Short story for fans of the Series."
    Would you listen to Rapture: The Big Daddy again? Why?

    This book is great I have listened to it a few times now and plan to listen to it again. I'm a big fan of the bioshock series and reading the lore just makes me wanna play the games over and over again.


    Any additional comments?

    I find this book, along with others written about Rapture to be great accompaniments to the games. This book in particular have me a glimpse into the little sisters and big daddies. It was well thought out and written. The story was engrossing and creative. Definitely worth a look. An excellent story that follows perfectly the Bioshock universe. Aside from a few misused words this book is great. Anyone who enjoyed the first two Bioshock games will love this book.

    "Another Amazing Side Story Set In Rapture"
    What made the experience of listening to Rapture: The Big Daddy the most enjoyable?

    Steve White is a master of reading these guides and making them easy and enjoyable to listen to.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rapture: The Big Daddy?

    Once again, it is amazing how little storylines can paint an entire picture of a fictional place based on a videogame called Bioshock. the fictional underwater city of Rapture explaining how a big daddy came to be through the eyes of a character that lives there.


    Have you listened to any of Steve White’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    Steve White does an excellent job narrating this book. He is articulate, pleasant and very easy to listen to. He relays the information in a casual, yet professional, manner.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I would suggest listening this if you can enjoy a mystery that will leave you wanting more or even if you just want listen a great story.

    Story
    "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.

    "Great book by Brubaker"
    Would you listen to Rapture: The Big Daddy again? Why?

    The Big Daddy is an entertaining science fiction read. Interesting take on the Big Daddy. Pretty sad, though. Wanna make me listen to it over and over again.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I gave rapture the big daddy five stars because one I was always curious about the whole big daddy and little sister bit in the video games like how did it all start and why and now I have my answer in this little short story we get a insight into the first big daddy Mr Arthur winters it starts with him and his family moving into rapture with a dream only to end in a nightmare which I don't want to give to much away but I did enjoy this short read I thought it was well told and aside from some misplaced words I did enjoy it I recommend.

    "Overall a pretty good short story"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. I definitely recommend this audio book to a friend because it is well narrated and simple enough to follow while not compromising quality content.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The writing and pacing of the story is very well done. The author takes us through the city of Rapture and its many districts and provides satisfying amounts of detail without detracting from the advancement of the story.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, I was really feeling emotional,


    Any additional comments?

    This story takes place before the events of the first game. It goes into the background of some of the supporting characters of the first game. Identifying with the main character and his new start in life is easy and when things take a turn for the worst you’ll be eager to keep listening to find out what happens. This story can easily be enjoyed in a single sitting and it’s a great example of well-executed short form fiction. I’d highly recommend this book to anyone regardless of their taste for science fiction.
