I adore The Godfather - the book was lovely pulp fun and, of course, Coppolla turned into something much much more with his films (even the third one that left a lot to be desired). Mr. Fusilli's novel suffers from covering similar territory and not doing it nearly as well.

This book covers quite a bit of territory with some interesting and vital characters contained within, although the most interesting characters are not the major ones. I really wanted that New York City early Mob days feel, and you get that from this, but for me I was unable to stop comparing the book to The Godfather and that's unfortunate.

A good story, well told, but not what I thought it would be.
