Elie The book that i read is very interesting and fantastic, it makes you excited and it lets you read more and more to find out what is happening


Susan I read this book a long time ago. Right after the movie came out. Loved the book...loved the movie!!!


Feliks I don't think that's exactly true. He grew up in Hell's Kitchen sure--but as an adult he worked as a writer for men's magazines; he picked up bits-and-piece of the concept and put it all together based on word-of-mouth and various writings he came across. I wouldn't say he 'followed the mafia' in any energetic manner.


Gary I read the book before the movie came out. I enjoyed the book and thought they did a good job with the movie version by sticking closely to the book. No one gets the inside scoop on the Mafia without being a higher up in the family, so Puzo did the best with what information he could get.

Your English sounds just fine to me! I'm glad you don't let your newness to the language keep you from reading good books.

Bluemilk thanks,i,ll work hard


Steven P. Marini As I recall, the guy who made it well known that there were "families" who made up organized crime was Joe Vallachi (spl?). Puzo might have worked from that.
