Yes. The author paints a clear picture of New Jersey Italians. I don't think anyone else could describe or deliver the correct tone of the story than Jon. I am surprised that the audio book did not include the epilogue.
This was my first book of this style, so I have nothing else to compare it to.
A viable Italian/Jersey tone to the story. This is a story about the Mob in Jersey. I could not picture Patrick Stewart performing this and be credible.
At the end, reading the epilogue (that AUDIBLE.COM left out), I was moved by the death of Jerry, Jon's cousin. Many times throughout the book I laughed at the situations Jon got himself into...many I cannot repeat here in this review.
My cousin Ray told me about this book. I had the wonderful opportunity to meet Jon and hear him read the first chapter. I have listened to many books read by various individuals. It is in my opinion that a story read by the author is much better than by any actor. The author knows what he wants the reader to take from the story. Jon gave me a glimpse into the world of the Mob that only he could convey.
