message 38: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Hey, I just went one step ahead and watched the movie. :)
The theme music is super awesome. Maybe you could also try watching the movie after reading the book. Have a bookish weekend. ;)


message 39: by Satheesh (new)

Satheesh | 24 comments Finished the book :)
Watched Godfather I part few years back.
I liked the book better :)


message 40: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Yeah, me too. I liked the book better. In the movie they left out some important dialogues between Don Vito and Michael.


message 41: by Satheesh (last edited Nov 08, 2014 08:01AM) (new)

Satheesh | 24 comments Yup. So what are you planning to start next ??


message 42: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Oh, wait.. Aren't we supposed to discuss Godfather. The good parts, the bad parts... It doesn't make sense if we just read and move on to another book. We should discuss Godfather first.

As to your question, I already started reading. The Wonderful wizard of Oz :)


message 43: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Knock knock? You there buddy?


message 44: by Satheesh (new)

Satheesh | 24 comments Hi Buddy. Sorry got stuck with some work lately.
At least I was able to complete Godfather :)
Seems it will take few weeks/months before I can start reading again. :(


message 45: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Oh.. that's sad :(
Do you want to discuss Godfather or wait until you have some more free time?


message 46: by Satheesh (new)

Satheesh | 24 comments We will discuss it.
How did you like the story narration?
Your opinion on Don Corleone?


message 47: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments The narration was really good. I loved the way the story went back and forth. I really liked Don Vito Corleone. He was a man of character. I loved the way he kept his temper. Being quite short tempered myself, I would like to imbibe that quality.


message 48: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments I started writing a review but couldn't get it done because of shortage of time. Lots and lots of work :( :(


message 49: by Satheesh (new)

Satheesh | 24 comments You too running short of time. Welcome to the club :)
And about novel the narration is too too good. The way the author introduced the Don is awesome.
“For justice we must go on our knees to Don Corleone.”
He has made us travel in mafia world witnessing their own law, friendship, betrayal etc...
And about Godfather, even when Don Vito Corleone assured five families that he is not going to avenge for Sonny's death he secretly desires it.
“Revenge is a dish that tastes best when it is cold”.
This shows even he took something personnel and not everything as business.

In simple words its a CLASSIC MASTERPIECE.
**OMERTA**


message 50: by Reshma (new)

Reshma (ReadAway) | 58 comments Hey, I finally found some time to write something about Godfather. It is not much of a review but do check it out if you find time...

omerta ;)
