    Michael Corleone is returning to the U.S. after the two-year exile to Sicily in which listeners left him in The Godfather. But he is ordered to bring with him the young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, who is the unofficial ruler of northwestern Sicily. In his fight "to make Sicilians free people", the young folk hero, based on the real-life Giuliano of the 1940s, has made both the police and the Mafia his enemies.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    How about a plot where the peopel featured as heroes, 1 don't get killed. and 2 others in the story have true honor rather than wearing cowardice as a badge of honor, and calling that "honor"!


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mario Puzo again?

    It depends! His first book in this so-called series, was excellent, and skillfully written. His second book looks like he's gone soft in the head in his old age, or something. It's a piece of crap!


    Have you listened to any of Larry Brandenburg, Jane Brody, Walter Brody, Charl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. As the last recording was good, so is this one in performance.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Absolutely not! I wish I'd never even thought about, let alone downloaded this trash! Disgusting! Disgusting! Disgusting!


    Any additional comments?

    Yes! If there are anymore crapstorms from this author, I would seriously consider no longer stocking his books.

    The Godfather is an extraordinary novel which has become a modern-day classic. Puzo pulls us inside the violent society of the Mafia and its gang wars. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power.

    What made the experience of listening to The Godfather the most enjoyable?

    The dramatization using multiple voices for different persons in the story, was a thrilling change from the dull single narrators. The action was great, the writer has much depth and feeling in his book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Godfather?

    One of the most memorable moments, one of my personal favorites, is a tossup between the revenge on Solotso and the cop and the excecution of the other dons.


    What about the narrator’s performance did you like?

    The narrators were great, their accents perfectly authentic, and read with true feeling, and most excellent delivery!


    If you could rename The Godfather, what would you call it?

    The Italian


    Any additional comments?

    Definitely a worthy purchase, and addition to any lover of fiction.
