Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

The story of Don Vito Corleone, the head of a New York Mafia family, inspired some of the most successful movies ever. It is in Mario Puzo's The Godfather that Corleone first appears. As Corleone's desperate struggle to control the Mafia underworld unfolds, so does the story of his family. The novel is full of exquisitely detailed characters who, despite leading unconventional lifestyles within a notorious crime family, experience the triumphs and failures of the human condition. Filled with the requisite valor, love, and rancor of a great epic, The Godfather is the definitive gangster novel.

Format: Taschenbuch
It becomes clear after watching the movie before reading the book that The Godfather novel is better than the movie even though I rank The Godfather movies as one of the best ever. This saga about Corleone Family, gives the best definition of the mafia genre than all the written works that may be known. The character development is unrivalled, the plot is marvelous, the pace is fast, the setting is engrossing and with the complex though fascinating lessons contained within the lines, one gets something close to a catechism. I think that is why Francis Ford Coppola did not have to alter much in the story to produce the movies.
"Behind every great fortune, there is a crime," Wrote the French novelist Balzac. This quote is the forerunner to The Godfather. It takes a short while into the novel to realize that The Godfather transcends being just a novel. Many readers have confessed that it altered their perception of life after reading it. It certainly is a classic with the most influential and deep-cutting influence on the minds of its readers. This novel presents us with the uncommon code and workings of the Mafia. It also explores the lives of the people who are directly or indirectly involved in it. Throughout the novel, one is forced to view Don Corleone as a very good bad man.
Mario Puzo's The Godfather is rich with wide-ranging characters as well. There is Don Corleone's first son-the short-tempered Sonny, Fredo the weak-minded second son, Michael the reluctant son with his father's steel-mindedness who ends up to save the family and Connie the baby sister who follows her impulses all the time.

2 von 2 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Christopher J. Schillig am 13. Juli 2000
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a totally engrossing novel centering on the exploits of a fictional family of gangsters, their violent lives and deaths. Puzo tells a complex story brimming over with interesting characters, and while his narrative is sometimes overly sketchy, it is always riveting. The real crime committed in my version (the 30th anniversary mass market paperback) is the horrendous proofreading. Typos abound, most of them glaring and easily corrected with even the most rudimentary spell checking. Such things pull me out of a story quickly, and it's a testament to Puzo's power as a storyteller that I still found myself enjoying the story as much as I did.

I was totally clueless when it came to the subject of "The Godfather" up until about one week ago. I had never seen the movies, though, truth be known, I always wanted to. I had never read the book, but it was one of my mother's favorites. Now, a week later, I have veiwed our copies of "The Godfather", parts I and II, at least 5 times each, and rented (and saw) part III. A day ago I took a walk down to the local used book store and bought the last copy they had of the book, a crappy second hand copy of "The Godfather", printed somewhere around 1971 (A book almost exactly twice as old as me) theat was all but falling apart in my hands. Today, I finished the book and am going at it for a second time. I found it informative, but don't take that the wrong way. Some people say "it was informative" as a way of saying "it was as boring as anything" less bluntly. But I don't mean it that way at all. What I mean is that it told more about the MAFIA than any other book I have ever read. And it was very, VERY interesting. I was captivated by it. If it weren't interesting, why would I read it twice? I am Italian and, at one time, some of my family had been involved with the Cosa Nostra. Not the whole family, but a few people. And so, for my thirteen years, I have been very interested in organized crime and the likes. I read history books to learn about it, but I did not expect to get so much information from a novel as I did from The Godfather. I got this book to read for pleasure, not for more info. I read it for the plotand I got much more than I expected. Well written, exciting, informative (did I mention that) and overall the most enjoyable book I ever read.

I first read _The Godfather_ in 1978 when I was 12 years old. I thought that it was a good book then but being a callow youth I didn't realize how brilliant it was. Recently I went on a long trip and picked this up to read on the plane. I was enthralled. Mario Puzo wrote a brilliant classic in this book, on one level _The Godfather_ is a straight crime novel about a Mafia family and can be enjoyed on that level. On another level _The Godfather_ is a brilliant rumination on the meaning of the American Dream and how it is pursued. Reading _The Godfather_ is also fun because you try to figure out who some of the characters are based on. Johnny Fontaine is supposed to be based on Frank Sinatra, who had significant mob ties. The Jewish gangster character Moe Green is supposedly based on Bugsy Siegel. If you haven't read this book then buy it right now. You won't be disappointed, and if you haven't read the book or seen the movie you should buy both of them, the movie is one of the most brilliant adaptations of a novel ever to hit the screen.
