Review

"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
