Even if you’ve seen the movies, you need to read The Godfather. I couldn’t put it down. Almost six hundred pages and I swallowed the whole thing in a week. As soon as you think the dust has settled, the author Mario Puzo throws something else at you.
It’s one of the best books I’ve ever read, and there are significant differences between the book and the movie. So fast, complex, entertaining.
I start editing my crime novel, Mad City, this week. Before I started, I wanted to learn from one of the best crime novels ever written. Please, give it a read ASAP.
