I read “The Godfather” many, many years ago and thought it would be a nice change to pick it up again. It’s very interesting that I seem to have memorized the movie somehow, and, just like the first time I read it, I seem to have liked the movie better than the book. This is a rarity! It’s also a rarity that the movie follows the book so precisely—until I realized that Puzo also wrote the screenplay. Of course, having seen the film first probably influenced me; after all, how can you beat that incredible cast? This doesn’t mean I enjoyed the book any less; really, I think it was flawless in its execution (oops—pardon the pun). The characters were well drawn and each stood out in his or her own way. I found the book hard to put down even though I knew what was going to happen.

Is there anybody who doesn’t know the story? Interestingly, the early life of Don Corleone was inserted into the middle of the book (wasn’t this from movie number two?). It helped a lot and made the Don more approachable to the reader, I think. Also, we do get a deeper insight into the private life of Johnny the singer, for instance, and even Tom—as well as an explanation of why Tom was removed as Consigliere at the end. We get a better understanding of Kay, and why she stuck around after Michael cleaned house, so to speak. So in many ways, the book really did enhance the movie experience and certainly would have stood the test of time all by itself. It was well worth reading again.

I first read this wonderful book when I was 13. That was 1972 and the movie was out and playing to full houses. I wasn't old enough to see the movie so I read the book. The book made me want to see the movie even more than I already did. Being turned away from my local movie theater for being underage, I sat on the steps of the theater moping. The theater owner eventually, after everyone else was already in, called me in and told me to sit in the back row and keep my mouth shut. I spent the next 3 hours with my mouth wide open marvelling at an awesome movie which I still love to this day.

This is a wonderful book from Mario Puzo detailing the complex and secretive lives of one New York Mafia famiy in the 1940's. Very complex characters make up the family with Don Corleone the patriarchal figure through whom all decisions are made. Allegience first and foremost is to the family. Any devience from that rule will be dealt with harshly.

Mario Puzo's writing is crisp, colorful and moves along at a pace most readers will find enjoyable. Each character is developed with enough clarity that you'll be able to understand their motivation and maybe even predict their actions somewhat.

Such power comes at a price and the sword of Damocles hangs over the Don. He gets gunned down early on due to his refusal to partake in an emerging industry called narcotics. He survives and seeks to re-establish himself as head of the most powerful of the New York families. It's hard to do justice to such a wonderful book in a review.

Based purely on the writing style, this book is as good as any you will read. Based on the content this book is a cut above most due to the complexity and the codes these people live by. You will learn things as you wade through their lives and their circumstances.

It's a long book but you wont notice. You'll read, absorb and want more once you're done.

The Godfather 1 & 2 are arguably the greatest movies “EVER”. The book was better than the movies because it goes into detail not included in the movie. The Godfather audio-book is even better than the book or movie. Joe Mantegna narrates the book to perfection. I usually listen on my hour drive to work. For the first time in my life I could not wait to go to work so I could listen to the next chapter of the Godfather. Amazing, read the book seen the Godfather 1 & 2 numerous times, however, this audio-book is the best of all the Godfather versions. Mario Puzio was a genius!!

I’ve read The Godfather several times during the past 45+ years. My parents read it in 1969 or ‘70, and I am remember both talking about it favorably. When they didn’t say anything when I picked it up and read the first couple of paragraphs, that sealed my fate; I was going to have to read the entire book.
I’m sure I enjoyed it then because of the sex, violence and other mature themes I was just starting to read, but first and foremost, it was a page-turner like nothing else l’d picked up before.
Subsequently it seems like it was always around on a friend’s book shelf or found in the local library on the “to be shelved” cart, which made for easy accessibility and instant immersive reading bliss.
This is a ripping fine story that combines family histories and conflicts into something that seems to morph into something new and unique with each new reading.

I just finished reading The Artisan: An Artistic Assassin Thrillerwhich is a great read and an excellent, satirical but non-slapstick view of Mafia Families and it made me think of how much I loved The Godfather (Signet). Even though it's been years, this book pulled me in and read as fresh and enrapturing as it did the first time.
4 reasons why you need to read it again:
1) it reads like the movie, but there are so many things in the book that are not in the movie
2) this is such a big part of American lore and legend, it feels like coming home
3) it will remind you what an amazing story teller Mario Puzo was and you will go back and read all his books such as Omerta: A Novel
4) we read to be taken away and this book will take you far, far away.

So don't say, "I already read this." say., "It's time to read The Godfather (Signet) again!"
