Summary

The history of the films, cartoons, toys, and more: The Back to the Future series is a timeless collection that is greatly revered by all audiences. The beauty of this audiobook by Brad Gilmore is that it doesn't present the history of the film as textbook information. Gilmore discusses these films from a place of passion and so effectively reveals how the history behind the movies is just as engaging as the films themselves.

From a fan, for the fans: There's a host of information out there on the Back to the Future trilogy, but never before has there been an audiobook like this. Gilmore, a radio and television host, also happens to be a die-hard fan of the movies. As a fan speaking to fellow fans, Gilmore dives into fan theories and provides the answers to all the questions listeners could possibly have - because they are the very questions he himself has asked.

Unheard details and trivia: Not only is Gilmore a die-hard fan, but he is also an expert on all things Back to the Future, a fact made evident by the podcast he hosts, Back to the Future: The Podcast. Pairing his knowledge with his passion for the films, Gilmore uses this audiobook to discuss details and movie trivia that reveal just why these movies have stood the test of time.

Tremendous fun

From the very start It's clear that this is a perfect book for real fans of the Back to the Future series. Brad Gilmore absolutely LOVES this series, and the introduction chapter actually gave me goosebumps.
After placing the reader squarely in the center of Hill Valley, this book takes you on a ride to all the major sights and people in this beloved town. Enjoy the ride!

Every Back to the Future fan should check this out.

I listened to all of this within a day. Clearly written by a diehard fan who adores this franchise and is narrated by someone with equal passion. I can’t recommend this enough.

Extremely weak

I very rarely return books but I got half an hour through this one and it’s so dire I had no choice. It was like reading a Wikipedia page written by a kid. No thanks!

Meh

I would have liked to have heard a whole lot more about the BTTF trilogy itself, behind the scenes, inside stories, trivia, etc. I got a little of that but a whole lot more about related theme park rides, animated children's shows, and rankings of DeLorean time machine iterations, side characters, Doc's inventions, and discussions of BTTF games and musicals. Unless all that appeals to you, I'd give this a pass
