Mario Puzo


Th Last Don

by Mario Puzo

Rating: **.8

 

The mafia master returns from The Godfather in a lukewarm saga of the last great American crime family and its reach into Hollywood and Las Vegas. With keen insights into the authentic life of the mafia, Puzo tells the story of Domenico Clericuzio, a ferocious old man who is determined to secure his family's future in an era of legalized gambling, movie investments, and the threat of government informers. Don't expect a lot of blood and guts, but a good story.

The Godfather

by Mario Puzo

Rating: ****

 

The story of Don Vito Corleone, the head of a New York Mafia family, inspired some of the most successful movies ever. It is in Mario Puzo's The Godfather that Corleone first appears. As Corleone's desperate struggle to control the Mafia underworld unfolds, so does the story of his family. The novel is full of exquisitely detailed characters who, despite leading unconventional lifestyles within a notorious crime family, experience the triumphs and failures of the human condition. Filled with the requisite valor, love, and rancor of a great epic, The Godfather is the definitive gangster novel.
