The Godfather by Mario Puzo

Official Thrillerfix Review by C.G. Cooper

31 October 2017

What’s it about? Don Corleone. The Godfather. Master of his family. Patriarch of New York. This isn’t just a story about mob hits. This is a twisted tale of the American Dream.

What makes it special? I’ve read this book too many times to count. The story is told like a working-man’s tale; to the point and engaging. Puzo makes you fall in love with murderers like Sonny Corleone, embrace reluctant heroes like Michael Corleone, and sympathize with the power grab of Don Vito Corleone.
