The Godfather
The Godfather | Mario Puzo
More than thirty years ago, a classic was born. A searing novel of the Mafia underworld, The Godfather introduced readers to the first family of American crime fiction, the Corleones, and the powerful legacy of tradition, blood, and honor that was passed on from father to son. With its themes of the seduction of power, the pitfalls of greed, and family allegiance, it resonated with millions of readers across the worldand became the definitive novel of the virile, violent subculture that remains steeped in intrigue, in controversy, and in our collective consciousness.

I enjoyed this and I'm looking forward to watching the movie now and perhaps even getting into other gangster movies and books.

Wild ride, Crazy story. A look into corruption like never seen before. I'd give this book 5 stars if it wasn't for the filthy parts, If I had a hard copy I'd mark them out with a Black Marker. 😂 My innocent self will not tolerate such things 😂.
I won't be reading a Crime Novel for a long time.
It was well written, the Author always seemed to find the right words.
PS: I know The Godfather is a famous movie; I've never watched.

Sometimes the movie is just as good, if not better than, the book. These two definitely fall into that category. It‘s been over ten years since I‘ve read either. No desire to pick them up again, but am now definitely in the mood for some Pacino and Deniro. Maybe I skip both The Godfather and Goodfellas (based on Wiseguy) and go straight to the best: The Godfather Part II! 🍿 🎥

I finally finished my Best Sellers puzzle. A little extra challenging because two of the books shown on the puzzle box were different than what the puzzle actually ended up being. And then the puppy got a hold of two pieces and they were fairly unrecognizable and very soggy by the time I retrieved them. It turns out both pieces were from the same book, The Godfather 😂😂😂 Oh Brix, do you know who you were messing with LOL 😂🤣😅

Such a quick read and very enjoyable. I watched the film many years ago. The book has a lot of back story not featured in the film that is really fascinating.
Of course it is stuffed full of violence, as to be expected, but I thought some of the sex scenes were unnecessarily detailed and gratuitous. Other than this it was a good read.

MayJasper Yes me too @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled and how Don Corleone got started. It is so easy to get caught up in the lives of the characters and forget that they are murderers, extortionists, racists, misogynists and many more unpleasant ...ists and how they dress their actions up as family loyalty. 13mo

I knew this book existed, but When I saw Don Draper on Mad Men reading it I mentioned it to my fiancé and he told me I should read it. Oh boy I wish I hadn‘t waited so long to read it. This book is full of character development and change. I don‘t want to give too much away. It is like A Game Of Thrones, but it came first. I give this book two thumbs up.

This is a definite classic and shows the workings of the mafia. I never read the book before but I have seen the movie. Who could forget the dead horse's head in the bed? I enjoyed the book for all the extra information that was not in the movie. I listened to the audio and enjoyed it very much. If you haven't read this book, what are you waiting for?

Book 9 of #MountTBR - It took me a while to read this one, but not because the book isn‘t good or interesting. I think it was because the movie is such a good adaptation. I knew what was going to happen, except for a few small parts. If I hadn‘t seen the movie first, I think this would have been one that was hard to put down. #GARBingo #Booked2018 #friendship (Friendship, loyalty and omerta are important to the Family.)

Never thought I‘d even ever look at this book much less read it, mafia stuff is not my thing but this #ClassicCrimeThriller is worth 4 1/2 ⭐️‘s

Finished the audiobook of this today. Overall I liked it a lot, I find the way women are described and treated in it hugely problematic but I was trying to bear in mind that it was written in the 60s and that I don‘t think the mafia were big on feminism! Despite my issues with it I still found it oddly compelling and it held my attention well considering it was a long audiobook! A tentative ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Settings There's a character who could have been replaced by a walking vagina and nothing would have changed - the narrative sees her vagina as her most important characteristic and the major source of her self worth and ability to find happiness. Think not big on feminism is putting it lightly... 2y
Christine11 @anoplph0ra That is so true, all of the female characters are just set pieces really, with no valid opinions or personality. It is pretty shocking and did really bother me. 2y
Settings @Christine11 Yeah, it's a style of writing I'm finding more and more is typical only of a relatively narrow time period too. I mean, even in historical works where women are economic chattel they get agency and worth. That could be more indicative of the types of works likely to survive to the modern day though. 2y

I‘ve been listening to the audiobook of The Godfather whenever I‘ve been out walking. I know it‘s partly based on real people but I wonder if that is what the mafia was actually like? My feelings are mixed, I hate the way women are treated in the book but I guess that‘s partly due to it being written in the 60s. I‘m still finding it quite a compelling read though! If you‘ve read it I‘d be fascinated to know your thoughts!

Cathythoughts Love this movie too 👍🏻💫💫 2y
Librarybelle Thank you, @dariazeoli ! I‘ve seen the movies but have not read the book! 2y
AmyG I love this movie, too. The book is great. I remember reading it in 8th grade. The book got passed around (not by me) so we could all read about Sonny‘s “interlude” during his sister‘s wedding. Page 26??? (edited) 2y

Liatrek Love this movie. I didn‘t realize it was a book until my boss told me. I have a copy and it‘s been on my TBR pile for awhile. I hope I get to it this year 😊 2y

A few of my favorite movie posters and their corresponding books 🎥📚Although my Halloween stuff usually looks better with my movie collection, I like my white #poinsettia too. #jingleshelves
