it was amazing
Recommended for: absolutely not under age people

"I'll make an offer he can't refuse"
That is one quotation of Vito Corleone, the Godfather, the most powerful Don in US. Seeing his figure, I saw a man with a strong principle and willingness accompanied with a bravery to do all things needed to achieve his goal. More than those two things; his determination and his wit. This book shows a story of a mafia family, the Corleones. The family who had been very strong and seemed to be unbreakable that found its biggest challenge when the Don was shot and got severe injury. Revenge and attack done in brutality were provided much in this book. Yet, the most interesting thing I like in this book is how the Don (Vito and later on Michael, his last son and successor) used a brilliant strategy to obtain their goal. I couldnt stop my eyed from reading this book; the thrills it gives fascinated me so much. The best part is of course when Micahel ended all the conflicts happened, so smart and cruel in a way. Yet, don't let me tell you that here; I will ruin your joy reading this book. It is brilliantly smart, violent, tragic, and vulgar; absolutely not a reading for under age.
One of the best books I've ever read!
