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 ver...

I'm one of the people who watched the whole movie trilogy and then after that found out that The Godfather exists 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'...

"Come in." "Ah, Don Corleone, I'm sorry to trouble you -" "Sit down." "Thank you, Don Corleone -" "Where is your mother from?" "I'm sorry?" "Your mother, she is from Italia. Which town?" The rest of this review is available elsewhere (the location cannot be given for Goodreads policy reasons)

I'm gonna make him an offer he can't refuse. قد تكون هي الجملة الأشهر فى تاريخ صناعة السينما , ولكن قبل أن ينطق بها العظيم مارلون براندو , كان قد خطها قلم روائي مبدع فى أحد الروايات الخالدة . الفيلم الذى نادرا ما تجد أحد يكرهه (خاصة لو رجل ) فهو سحر السينما مجسدًا , فله تأثير السحر ومفعوله وبريقه ا...

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 Consigliar...

“He smelled the garden, the yellow shield of light smote his eyes, and he whispered, "Life is so beautiful."

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...

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...
