A modern masterpiece, The Godfather is a searing portrayal of the 1940s criminal underworld. It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia. Still shocking 40 years after it was first published, this compelling tale of blackmail, murder, and family values is a true classic.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Godfather to be better than the print version?

With such a great performance this book comes to life far more than it could by simply reading it.

What did you like best about this story?

I liked how B-plots in the movie were explored more in the book.
