Great read, but did the author get bored at the end?
on 15 July 2002
I bought the book for a casual read, and couldn't put it down. The 'sound bytes' of each characters lives are enthralling - I hated putting the book down. But what happened at the end? The whole book builds up on the theme of the evil, manipulating Godfather, and his assortment of grandchildren - and then it ends. No explanation on who Marcus is, why he did what he did and what his plans were for the Godchildren. He sums up what's happened to each character throughout the book, and that's that. Or did the publishers miss out the last chapter in my version?! It's such a shame as you can't put the book down, and when you get to the end, you realise there is no story.
