La publicacion de El Padrino en 1969 convulsiono el mundo literario. Por primera vez, la Mafia protagonizaba una novela y era retratada desde dentro. Mario Puzo la presentaba no como una mera asociacion de facinerosos, sino como una compleja sociedad con una cultura propia y una jerarquia aceptada incluso mas alla de los circulos de delincuencia. El Padrino narra la historia de un hombre: Vito Corleone, el capo mas respetado de Nueva York. Despota benevolente, implacable con sus rivales, inteligente y fiel a los principios del honor y la amistad, Don Corleone dirige un emporio que abarca el fraude y la extorsion, los juegos de azar y el control de los sindicatos. La vida y negocios de Don Corleone, asi como los de su hijo y heredero Michael, conforman el eje de esta magistral obra. Con El Padrino, Mario Puzo consiguio crear un genero.

Onto review: Like I said in the first comment, the thing that pulls you in immediately is the perfect setting up of the magnetism, the why clans work. The comfort of belonging, the empowe...

Set in the 1940s and 1950s in mostly New York, the Corleone family is at the heart of a well organized crime ring. Vito Corleone, the Don of the family, keeps his fingers in all the local businesses, legal or otherwise. He’s always a gentleman, holding manners and respect in high regard. However, no...

5.0 The Godfather
Excellent! I liked this book very much. Being 1/4 Italian I could relate a lot to many parts of this book (though none of my family were in the mafia), because so many things were common culturally, such as, honor the family (if you bring any dishonor to the family/name you are disowned, etc.), men ...

5.0 The Godfather (Mario Puzo's Mafia #1)

The descriptions were really vivid. I felt like I was there. It was like watching a movie. Don Vito was my favorite charact...
