When Mario Puzo's blockbuster saga, The Godfather, was first published in 1969, critics hailed it as one of the greatest novels of our time, and "big, turbulent, highly entertaining." Since then, The Godfather has gone on to become a part of America's national culture, as well as a trilogy of landmark motion pictures. Now, in this newly-repackaged 30th Anniversary Edition, readers old and new can experience this timeless tale of crime for themselves. From the lavish opening scene where Don Corleone entertains guests and conducts business at his daughter's wedding...to his son, Michael, who takes his father's place to fight for his family...to the bloody climax where all family business is finished, The Godfather is an epic story of family, loyalty, and how "men of honor" live in their own world, and die by their own laws.

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)
This book is not for the faint of heart. It has violence, murder, and sexy times. Also cheating. This book was great, really engaging in it's story telling. It sucked me in. The descriptions were really vivid. I felt like I was there. It was like watching a movie. Don Vito was my favorite charact...
