Book: The Godfather
Author: Mario Puzo
Recommend: Great book, a lot of mature content but interesting read, especially after watching the movies.
Have you ever had a book that just seemed to take a long time to get through. Not because it was a hard read but because it just moves slowly even though you are enjoying it? Yep. That was this book. Great read but it took me a few days to get through it (of course watching the Olympics while reading probably didn’t help).
This tells the story of the Corleone family and the mafia in New York. I don’t know what it is about the mafia but I find it fascinating. I was impressed to see how accurate the movie was in comparison with the book! I didn’t expect the stories to be so close but they are extremely similar.
There is a large portion of almost every kind of mature content in this book so don’t expect a clean read when you pick this one up.
Great read but not for everyone.
