Michael is all grown up and running the family!!! Michael is trying to go legit but he finds out that is easier said than done!! Freddy is still a mess up and the book really goes into his life, much more than the movie!! Half brother Tom runs for congress and wins but in the end he is always by The Don's side!!! Also cousin Johnny is still singing and slaying the girls!!! Sonny's kids are all grown up and the twin girls have a great roll in the book!! If you liked the first book and the movies you need to grab this book!!!! You won't be disappointed!!!! And if you don't Michael will give you an offer you can't refuse!!! Lol
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
This was a great sequeal to the Godfather. Although Mario Puzo didn't write it you can tell that the author spent alot of time and energy to continue the same kind of "voice".
The narrator did a great job.
If you are a fan of the Godfather you might like this.
I couldn't wait to read this book. I found it drawn out and not very much going on, very wordy until the beginning of the last book of 3. Disappointing when compared to the Puzo stuff. Wanted it to be great and it wasn't.
Stephen King says that the road to hell is paved with adverbs. GR is a good example of that principal in action. No detail is left to chance. Every scene is written in excruciating detail, all thoughts and motivations are explored ad nauseum in truly insipid dialogues. Every decriptive sentence (and there are so, so many) flatten out the characters just a little more. The mystery of the semi-hidden personal forces that drove the characters in the Godfather is completely stripped away. So earnestly are you asked to believe in these characters, spending the hours it takes to make it through the book is akin to spending several hours sparring with an aggressive telemarketer or your cousin who is trying to get you signed up with Amway.
In short, I didn't care for it much. Mario Puzo himself had a very sketchy time writing sequels (of a sort) to the Godfather. Mr. Weingartner certainly didn't succeed where he had trouble.
Just let The Godfather die in peace.The trilogy was enough. You need a score card to remember the names of the players.Boring,trite and a waste of money.
