The Godfather by Mario Puzo
(#91 on The Big Read. My combined score: 23)
This is a book I have intended to read for years after having seen and loved the movie.
Total: 23 out of 30
Overall: I wasn’t disappointed at all but was surprised that other than the story of Johnny Fontane there wasn’t a lot of extra material in the book. I guess that’s a testament to Frances Ford Coppola and what an outstanding job he did with the movie.
Recommendations: Anyone who likes mob/crime stories or who likes the movie. And who doesn’t like the movie?
