Product Description

Tyrant, blackmailer, racketeer, murderer - his influence reaches every level of American society. Meet Don Corleone, a friendly man, a just man, a reasonable man.

The deadliest lord of the Cosa Nostra. The Godfather. A modern masterpiece, The Godfather is a searing portrayal of the 1940s criminal underworld. It is also the intimate story of the Corleone family, at once drawn together and ripped apart by its unique position at the core of the American Mafia. Still shocking forty years after it was first published, this compelling tale of blackmail, murder and family values is a true classic.

    Comments about The Godfather:

    Like most people, I've seen and loved the movie... this book just ads another dimension...

    The book is brilliantly written and gives the characters a depth that the movie never could...

    I'm glad I'd seen the movie first, as it allowed me to visualise the legendary cast each time I read the characters name.

    Comment on this reviewHelp Icon

    "The narrative bowls along... to keep readers turning pages all the way to an explosive showdown." Daily Mail "Here is all the classic material of Mafia mythology... spins a spell all its own" The Times "The Godfather, one of the most entertaining and absorbing popular novels of the postwar period... Puzo's masterpiece" -- Robert McCrum Observer "A splendid and distinguished blood saga of the Cosa Nostra, the American Mafia, and of the whirl created by five families of mafiosi at war in New York" Sunday Times "Puzo's genius was to create a world so thick with personality and acknowledged rules of behaviour, along with its crime and violence, that reading his books becomes a seriously guilty pleasure" New York Post
