This is the book to read for anyone who had an unnatural obession with The Sopranos. This book changed a lot for AMerica without it we would not have athat wonderful horse head in the bed scene and all the copycuts that followed. This is a favorite of mine

Sherry A wonderful book(and one of my top fave movies)
I read anything I could get my hands on by Mario Puzo as a result.I had such a crush on Michael as well.

I think that if it was not for this book America would not be as Mafia happy as it is.


Tera (TheBookishAbyss) | 91 comments I just finished this one and found it utterly breathtaking. The detail, the plot, the strength of character. No wonder The Godfather has remained such a strong phenomenon in America.

people laugh when I tell them its one of my favorites but once they read it they understand

Jeff This is a great book. If you ever have the chance (and 14 spare hours) to listen to it on audio, I seriously recommend it. There is a set of voices, not just one, which makes for a wonderfully vivid experience.

Wow thanks for the tip Jeff

Jeff Hey, Mike. Can you believe I'd never seen the movie before I heard the story? One trip to Florida and back is all I needed!
By the way, as good as the movie is, listening to it was better.

OMG never seen the movie. I love the movie- the book was way better but the movie is so good. The horses head in the bed scene is a classic movie moment
