Book review about the godfather by mario puzo

A Look Inside and other miscellany about the film: The complete lack of any moral verdict or judgmental coloring by the author leaves the reader free to draw his or her own conclusions about the characters and it is perhaps this reason that has most endeared it to the legions of it's readers.

Corleone's wife through forty years of marriage was never able to be his equal partner. But it's not the same. The Godfather DVD Collection was released on October 9, in a package [27] that contained all three films—each with a commentary track by Coppola—and a bonus disc that featured a minute documentary from entitled The Godfather Family: But, finally, there is Michael, the youngest Corleone who refuses to conform to family tradition.

In Don Corleone, Mario Puzo has created a persona who shifts people's views of the role of the mafia. Though Guilliano was shown to listen to his good judgement, and to his heart, the book leaves us with two powerful lessons in the different correction.

A young, up and coming author, Puzo sought to write his version of the great American novel that would also work well on the silver screen. The characters, so hardened and caustic at first glance, are in truth foolish or at least under the influence of greed and blood-thirsty ambition.

After viewing the movie for the first time, I am impressed how closely it stuck to the book down to the minutest detail. Other significant members of the organization include enforcers Luca Brasi and Albert Neri and upcoming soldier Rocco Lampone.

This book is powerful and simply brilliant. While there might be killings in revenge on occasion, the Don assists his people in a time of need in the role of an inner city Italian Robin Hood.

The Godfather

But when his father takes a turn for the worse and old tensions between the five great mafia families of New York intensify, Michael begins to give in to intrinsic Sicilian pride and with betrayal, embitterment, bloodshed and a narcotics operation fraught with the eminence of capital punishment, he falls.

Like his father before him, Michael Corleone differentiates his marriage from his place in the family business. Family values are taken to a new, frankly preposterous high.

Because of his poor eyesight, he was not allowed to undertake combat duties, but he was made a public relations officer stationed in Germany. Following The Godfather's debut on screen, Mario Puzo never again rose to a high level of prominence.

The Godfather referred to in the title is generally taken to be Vito. Despite the awe with which people viewed the Don, even he did not feel safe outside of his self-made mall fortress on Long Island. Meanwhile, in a time of war, the nation was beginning to view the mafia rather than Cowboys as the great American hero.The Godfather is a crime novel written by American author Mario Puzo, originally published in by G.
