  1. Mario Puzo wrote The Godfather, a book that was to become an instant classic, at a time when both his personal life and that of the United States were in transition Puzo s first two novels had not sold well, and he was almost penniless A young, up and coming author, Puzo sought to write his version of the great American novel that would also work well on the silver screen Meanwhile, in a time of war, the nation was beginning to view the mafia rather than Cowboys as the great American hero Accord [...]

  4. I m one of the people who watched the whole movie trilogy and then after that found out that The Godfatherexists as a novel Naturally, I had to purchase it It is a matter of taste, I suppose, but next to the movies so elegant and grandiose it feels a bit like reading pulp fiction Maybe it s that the book is lacking the presence of charismatic Hollywood giants Marlon Brando and Al Pacino, whose legendary performances rival those of Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh in Gone With The Wind It s hard to t [...]

  6. Puzo creates his awesome world then plays with his own elements those of detective noir and mob drama like a world class chess champion Less than a fourth into the narrative, POW the Don has been shot And, hold on a sec, who is the protagonist here I thought Michael Or the Consigliari Hagen Or Hollywood heart throb Johnny Fontaine The full display of individual destinies is what makes this better than its cinematic equivalent Here we see flesh and blood people living at a Hadean level system of [...]

  8. Indeed, dear reader, I did not hate The Godfather I h aa ted it.How much did I hate it Well I could start with a long dissemination of Mario Puzo s simplistic and repetitive prose Puzo seems to think the reader needs a reminder of plot points that occured ten pages ago, and that unnecessarily drawing out an obvious reveal by splitting it up into three points of view counts as suspense.Or I could give you a thorough cataloguing of how very poser y The Godfather, with its bombastic ideas of mascul [...]

  9. 4.8 Mario Puzo should have won a Nobel Prize for this book stars.And aside of the Blackwood sisters from We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson, I honestly hadn t met characters as seductive as the Corleone Family for a long time In fact, this book is just so insanely good Just like the movie It s damn near perfection It deserves all the stars in the night sky I would make my escape I would be rich, famous, happy Mario Puzo from Choosing A Dream Tell my father I wish to be his son [...]

  11. It was a very good book Alhamdulillah I can t wait to get The Family Corleone and The Sicilian books.My favourite characters are Vito Corleone Godfather and Michael Corleone The Godfather and The Godfather part 2 movies were awesome The Godfather part 3 was pointless The only part I actually enjoy watched The Godfather part 3 was 15 minutes before at the end of the film.

  13. I absolutely loved this book This book started my long running obsession with Mafia The Godfather is one of the best pieces of literature ever written Mario Puzo paints this elaborate picture of the Sicilian mafia through the eyes of Michael Corleone, a returning Marine Corps hero who at first wants nothing to do with the elaborate crime family that his father has built.Don Vito Corleone, an Italian immigrant who goes from poverty in Little Italy to create one of the Five Families of New York wi [...]

  14. The epic masterpiece of mafia fiction Puzo is good and entertaining elsewhere, here is great and masterful It is to mobster books what Godfather parts 1 2 are to mobster moviesa standard that can never be equalled What really intrigues me about Puzo s presentation of the Corleone family, and something that does not translate as explicitly to the screen, is the incredible sense of moral and religious conviction that what they do is right and good At times I found myself believing that the Corleon [...]

  22. I saw the movie few years ago and loved it I was unaware at that time that its an adaptation of a book of same name Courtesy I finally came to know of this fact But still I was in no mood to read the book until my friend Srividya recommended it to me.There are so many aspects of the book that I loved but characterization simply blew me away Puzo has given his characters so much depth Don Corleone, Michael, Tom Hagen, hot headed Sonny and every other character was brilliant Corleone family litera [...]

  23. 3.5 Don Corleone put his hand on the man s shoulder Good, he said, you shall have your justice Some day, and that day may never come, I will call upon you to do me a service in return.A classic among the modern classics, which I had woefully ignored, I barely even remember watching the film Clearly, the whole Godfather cult had passed me by.Well, the good thing about the book was that it was fast paced and made for utterly compelling reading from beginning to end There were a few parts that were [...]

  26. 4.5I knocked off half a star because all the women were one dimensional characters without any substance and also some of the scenes were repetitive Other than that, I loved this book It was addictive.Mario Puzo s prose might be simplistic but he presents an incredibly thrilling and intricate tale about the Mafia underworld set in the 1940 s America which is centred on the Italian American family, the Corleones.But Don t be mistaken into thinking the women of the family have anything to do with [...]
