I've read and listened to this book. It was a good read but I loved listening to it. This is the best read book I've ever listened to. If you go in knowing it won't be The Godfather you'll enjoy it. If you expect it to be on our or better then The Godfather well I'm sorry but you're an idiot.
True to the original, this book really expands on the characters you know and love. It introduces some new ones from some intentionally-omitted "extras" in the original. This is a great read.
Nick Geraci. Brutal and smart. Like Michael.
I love's Scott's Performance. Great Italian pronunciation.
A better narrator.
Don't know liked the the Original The Godfather. Just couldn't get thru this book.
Don't think so.
Love, betrayl, redemption, all for success....but is it worth it? Get more intimate with the characters you know, and new characters you don't with this masterpiece woven into the world of the Family Corleone.
Particularly if you've been reading through all of Puzo and are hankering for the genius in details of the Godfather, this book is a fantastically satisfying romp back into the Arthurian landscape of America's 1st Family of crime, the Corleone's.
Love reading tech & business especially when it comes in a single book.
Although not as good as the original (author even says it was never meant to top it) this book is written amazingly in the same manner as Puzo wrote. Great imagery and vivid writing even during complex parts of the book.
The Godfather of course: although this doesn't top the original it isn't far behind.
The narrator did an exceptional job of playing numerous characters. I liked how he didn't over do the female voices like some do but you could tell when a female was talking. Great job.
No it is a very long audiobook meant to be taken in small bites.
I just achieved App Master!! I never thought I would make it this far!! Thanks Audible
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.
