Title: The Godfather
Author: Mario Puzo
Date Finished: August 18, 2018
I caught the last half of this movie last summer – right when Sonny was killed – come on, that can’t be a spoiler almost 50 years later. It struck me that this was a hit book back in 1969 before it was a novel. It turned out to be a fantastic summer page-turner.
The movie is very faithful to the book although the novel – as they do by virtue of their longer format – gives more background to the characters.
If you are looking for a quick, exciting read – though with the suspense gone if you’ve seen the movie – pick it up.
