One of the best works of literature, bar none. Superb writing and a cultural icon.

A very well written story of family, loyalty, and how "men of honor" live in their own world, and die by their own laws. I recommend it for adults.

Repetitious in parts - but still a classic.

The movie is great, but the book is even better. It adds more detail and background that the movie doesn't cover.

Loved this book. It was very well written and I was completely immersed. Read this book, I will almost guarantee you'll like it. Of course its going to be better than the movie.

Don Corleone nodded. "Revenge is a dish that tates best when it is cold," he said.

Sonny had been listening judiciously. "I want someboby very good, very safe, to plant that gun," he told Clemenza. "I don't want my brother coming out of that toilet with just his dick in his hand."
