Publisher's Summary

From the blockbuster author of The Godfather comes this bold international best-seller about the feverish world of a big-time gambler.

Merlyn and his brother, Artie, obey their own code of honor in the ferment of contemporary America, where law and organized crime are one and the same.

Set within America's golden triangle of corruption and excess—New York, Hollywood, Las Vegas—the novel plunges into the glittering and ruthless worlds of gambling, publishing, and the film industry, where greed, lust, and violence hold sway. As high rollers, hustlers, and scheming manipulators use power, sex, and betrayal to win, the strongest survive—but fools die.

    "some good, some tedious"

    Parts of this are interesting and move right along, and other parts, particularly the parts where the narrator is perseverating about women, get extremely tedious. The reader is wonderful. The best reader I've ever heard. I actually chose this book partially because he was the reader.

    "Great story, lousy audio"

    This story is really fun. The audio is perhaps the poorest effort from audible.com.

    Story
    "Excellent Performance Of A Total Mess Of A Novel"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This book was universally panned when it was published and I can see why. It is a mixed-up mess of abrupt shifts in tone, implausible actions, anti women screed, mach philosophizing and self pity.


    Would you recommend Fools Die to your friends? Why or why not?

    I cannot recommend the book although individual scenes were very good.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The insights into the running of a casino were quite interesting.


    Did Fools Die inspire you to do anything?

    It convinced me not to buy another Puzo book, although I loved the Godfather.
