Publisher's Summary

The sequel to Puzo's epic and brutal Mafia classic The Godfather. Once again Puzo brings the history of the Corleone family to life.

Michael Corleone's exile in Sicily is ending, but on the instructions of his father, The Godfather, he must bring back to him the young man known as Salvatore Giuliano - if he can find him.

At sea amid the treacheries of a brutal and unfamiliar land, Michael must find a way through the labyrinthine deceits that surround him while Giuliano prepares himself for a final confrontation with Don Croce, capo di capi of the Sicilian Mafia.

A novel of explosive suspense, heroic action - and evil on an epic scale.

In the hands of Mario Puzo's brilliantly sinister talent, the listener comes to know again the terrible magic of the Mafia.

    Story
    "Sounds like Family Guy does The Godfather"
    Would you try another book written by Mario Puzo or narrated by the narrators?

    The Godfather was a great book and the narration by Joe Montegna was also great. By contrast, The Sicilian sounds like a Dragnet spoof where some wiseguy speaks quickly out of the side of his mouth but without getting to the punchline. The different characters sound like they were recorded on an old tape recorder in various locations by gangster impressionists, then badly edited in some time later. There's no flow - the characters sound out of context.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Priest - if an Italian Mickey Mouse Balloon Priest could talk, this is how I think he'd sound.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator spoke too quickly and it didn't seem to match the pace of the story. I believe for another kind of book he'd actually be good, but for this, it just didn't work. I suspect the other actors could probably also have done better under different circumstances (did they have to record their own parts at home and send them in?)


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

    Mario Puzo can write a good story even if the editing and accents were distracting


    Any additional comments?

    I think I'll listen to a sample before buying next time...

    "Great book, Superbly produced"

    This story fits neatly into The Godfather saga sharing several characters, not only covering Michael Corleone's lost years in Sicily but the life of another equally charismatic character. Puzo's style remains the same.
    The performance is pacy but clear, subtly enhanced, in the most-part, by additional voices for the main characters.

    "A fantastic tale let down by sub par production"

    This is a great story you won't already know from the films, however it is massively let down by some poor casting choices for the voices and the whole thing being every so slightly sped up. These things will probably bug you but the speed thing disappears from notice after listening for a short while and the main narrator is good so t he grating voices are only sparsely present.

    "Choose another version!"

    A Puzzo novel always tells a great story!
    Unfortunately the bunch of readers made it a mockery, reading it far too fast! Should have listened to the sample first...

    "I can't blame him for cashing in. It is what it is"

    I personally think a full cast was not needed although a few voices shine through a single narrative gives at least me a chance to be active in the story and build my own personalities.

    Story
    "Poorly Narrated"

    I was looking forward to listening to this book, after having thoroughly enjoyed The Godfather, read by Joe Mantegna.

    This however, was quite disappointing.

    This is largely due to the narration in the style of a bored parent trying to read a bedtime story as fast as possible in order to get back to the second half of the football on TV. The voicings are inserted by actors, roughly edited and just sounds cheap.

    The story itself is ok, but the author doesn't half love the protagonist, cringe worthy at times.

    Story
    "Not as good as The Godfather"

    The story is based on Salvatore Giuliano, a Don who Michael Corleone meets and learn about.

    The story fails to continue from where you last left and tend to resets itself without your input.

    "All the production values of a school play"

    Dreadful narration. Never got near finishing it as a result. A shame as The Godfather was brilliant.

    "fantastic"

    I expected something quite different but was fantastically surprised with a great story and wonderful descriptions of Sicily and it's peasants.
