Enjoyed it very much! The films (1&2) stuck very closely to the book and it was great getting more details. I think any fan of the movies will love the book. ( )

For some reason I've never watched the movie, so I was able to go into this without any preformed images in my head. It's basically a very well-written pulp novel that is very entertaining and enjoyable. ( )

The classic story of the Corleone family and their power they had over New York City in the late 40's early 50's. Very good overall story with very interesting character explanations and descriptions of plots on revenge or simply to increase power. Also gives a glimpse into the cut-throat underworld that probably still exists today. Now it's time to watch the movies! ( )

Who does not know the name Don Vito Corleone? Who doesn't know the infamous "horse head" scene? I haven't seen the movie but even I have known about these details of The Godfather for decades. People just couldn't stop talking about the son who was hung like a horse (speaking of horses).
The year is 1945 and World War II is over. Mr. Corleone can go back to his "olive oil" business, if that's what you want to call it. In reality, this is the story of the Mafia society and all its inner workings. Vito Corleone rules his family from Long Island inside a well fortified compound. Outwardly, he is a quiet, friendly, benevolent, and fair man. He never forgets a debt. Underneath his reasonableness is a ruthless and vengeful gang leader who will stop at nothing to protect his empire of gambling, bookmaking, and controlling the unions. Other "families" are branching out; delving in drugs and prostitution. Don Corleone wants no part of that action but how long can he control business when these vices grow stronger? Even his own sons look like they might betray him. Who will take up the charge and protect the Corleone name? ( )

I must admit I never read The Godfather in my younger days and what a treat I missed. The movie follows the novel very closely with great performances from James Cann as the somewhat unpredictable Sonny Corleone, Robert Duvall “a lawyer with a briefcase can steal more than a hundred men with guns”, and the unmissable Al Pacino as the quiet, softly spoken Michael his destiny to become the Don. To achieve this Michael proves that underneath his sober exterior is a latent and ruthless ability to decisively order executions in the name and preservation of the Corleone family.

I enjoyed the way Mario Puzo introduced minor characters and we follow their story none better than crooner Johnny Fontane played perfectly by Al Martino as the aging narcissist. The book is a delight and very easy read even a 600+ pages with some wonderful quotes and observations along the way…” a friend should always underestimate your virtues and an enemy overestimate your faults”....”The Don considered a use of threats the most foolish kind of exposure, the unleashing of anger without forethought as the most dangerous indulgence”.......”But great men are not born great, they grow great and so it was with Vito Corleone”....”He had long ago learned that society imposes insults that must be borne, comforted by the knowledge that in this world there comes a time when the most humble of men, if he keeps his eyes open, can take his revenge on the most powerful”..........A truly great read that the passing of time has done nothing to diminish. Highly, highly recommended. ( )
