Format: Paperback
... that I have reached the end of this book. Having read The Godfather just prior to this I expected more of the story of Michael Corleone in Sicily.
Initially I was disappointed to see this really wasn't going to be the case, but what a fantastic read this is - so much better than The Godfather!
I can truly say this is a book where I feel I know the characters and what they are thinking, which is perhaps why it is so shocking. The story in this book is fantastic, the word-pictures of the scenery stunningly beautiful and the brutaility of bandit life stark - no punches held.
The Sicilian is utterly absorbing, taking you on a 7 year journey that seems to be over all too quickly; I was stunned by the ending - infact, I'm still shocked, but this is a book I will read again.
Without doubt this is the best book I have read in the last few years.

Format: Paperback
The Sicilian follows on from The Godfather.

Ostensibly it tells the story of Turi Guiliano, a sort of Sicilian Robin Hood but also fills in a bit of the back story of what happened to Michael Corleone during his time in Sicily. It is a standalone novel but does contain some Godfather spoilers, so if you intend to read that too then you should really read it first.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's not just a cracking gangster story, it's a lament for Sicily and the author's love of the place really shines through.

It's quite reminiscent of Hemingway's "For Whom The Bell Tolls" with very powerful masculine characters and a romantic hero fighting for his cause.

Overall - excellent.

Format: Paperback
A typical, and classic, Puzo creation, based on a historical character. He mixes his favourite literate ingredients of love, friendship, honour and betrayal to create a Robin Hood esc tale giving a great incite into the history and culture of the isle of Sicily. A must for any Puzo fan, just don't watch the crummy film, it will ruin your enjoyment.

Format: Paperback
The Sicilian once again demonstrates the cunningness of the Sicilian mafia. Don Croce fierce, respected, the chief of the Friends of the friends knows exactly what he is doing. The infamous Guiliano the Robin Hood of Sicilian country side respected like a son, but as dangerous as to Don Croce as the Socialists. Offers of friendship from the Don leads no where but to certain death.
The structure at first is quite difficult to get grasp of. But as the plot builds you will find yourself in tense story of love, betrayel heroism involving the strong Sicilian morals.

Format: Paperback
As with all of Mario Puzos books, the fight for power and freedom shines through. Certainly this book shows you hand to hand battle for the rights of the Sicilians. Take Braveheart and you've got the idea of the determination of the leader of the pack. Justice is needed and over all power of his home land to protect his family and people, who are all helping and covering up for him, even if they are to die because of his decisions. But of course there are always the few who can't keep their silence, through revenge or bribes, our Braveheart is slowly being destroyed. A battle of emotions and will certainly make this book one that I couldn't put down.

Format: Paperback
EXCELLENT! I have seen the film and read the book of The Godfather and thought that there wouldn't be anything else like it. That is until I read The Sicilian. I was jumping with excitement whilst I was reading to find that it was the sequel to The Godfather. I was praying that it would be on the level of The Godfather, and my prayer come true. The descriptions of the atmosphere, violence, passion and thoughts was OUTSTANDING!!! It had everything you would expect a gangster novel to have. Betrayal, power hungry mobsters, love and death. If you're a fan of the good old gangster novels and films, then this is definately a book to read. Enjoy! (I know I have)

Great addition to the godfather films, fits in perfectly as explains why and how Michael comes back from Sicily and is soon able to become Don he shows his intuition and shows him learning. We also meet the legendary bandit and also Don't Crochet boss of bosses.

Format: Paperback
Based on actual events of a Sicilian bandit- Salvatore Guiliano who in the early fourties led a resistance to the Roman Government and even the Mafioso. How accurate Puzo is with the facts of the legendary story requires research but none the less this book is an excellent read. The book is certainly not a sequel to the Godfather as the Corleone empire features very briefly. It is a puzzle that Guiliano is not more well known as he led a crusade very similar to Che Guevara. I cannot recommend this book enough, one of Puzo's best!
