Such an amazing book and experience, whether or not you’ve seen the movie this book is a must read!

The Godfather tells the story of a mob family, every mother, father and child, every aspect through the beginning when the Godfather got his start, to having children, running the family business, enforcing the rules, and eventually to his demise.

It was such a great story to read and be told. Every character is so unique and Puzo does an amazing job bringing the reader into this life and making you feel for everyone, regardless of their actions.

It’s hard to put into words this masterpiece, but I highly recommend it to everyone and I look forward to watching the movie again and gaining the full experience. I’ll probably even look into the other books in the series.
