Much like The Godfather meandering off into the minutiae of Johnny Fontaine this one is padded out with so much Hollywood I almost forgot it was about a Son. Unlike The Godfather the rest just didn't do it for me.
I really enjoyed this book and flew through it as it was so entertaining. The characters are though rather shallow and one dimensional and at times it did remind me of an American TV mini-series!
But maybe I'm shallow too, as I loved it!
I read psychology, business, and marketing related books but also enjoy the odd biography too. Big film fan, especially documentaries.
A good book that stands up with the fist two, and bears little resemblance to the third film.
to have been able to distinguish what was being said, sound quality very poor especially in the first chapters
Love the Godfather and thought the the series link meant this would be a continuation but sadly not the case.
not worth having as the sound very poor, misleading in my view as listed as part of the Godfather series.
I've read 3 of Mario Putzos books now and the man tells a story like no other, if you are a romantic, a cynic or just like a good old fashioned mafia story this is for you, it's got everything and is superbly written.
This is a mixed story nothing to do with the godfather or the sicilian it's really a story about Hollywood and the ups and downs and ins and outs of the movie bussiness .
