4.0 out of 5 stars Loving and courage developed side by side, 9 Oct 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: The Godfather (Hardcover)
Feel blocked in telling your loved ones how you feel for them - by reading this witty, down-to-earth story, its power of deliverance will lead you to show and express your affection for others in a simple and effective manner. Owen Whittaker is able to capture the real essence of a how 'The godfather' under unsuspected circumstances comes to terms with showing his feelings and love for his godchildren and others. Developed by the riddance of his own self pity and his enveloping 'self' style of living as a writer, the godfather nutures the grievance of his two godchildren who lose their parents in a tragic accident. The blossoming of a small community under the roof of the godfather's house in Ireland takes you on a journey of everyday eventualities when looking after children. Full of humour the story winds up with the fruits of loving being harvested through the full courageuos endeavours of all those willing to expose their true feelings.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously funny, moving, sad, and at times, slightly dark, 4 May 2000
This review is from: The Godfather (Paperback)
I just happened to pick this book because it had a glossy shiny cover, so I thought, yeah, this looks good! It was!
Max Patterson is a very succesful author of horror novels who, wheelchair bound, lives in a "gothic" mansion in Ireland, along with a live-in eccentric irish couple, Eugene and Maeve.
His ideal existence is put into turmoil when his best friend dies in a boating accident along with his wife, and it is then up to Max to bring up his two godchildren Caroline and Nigel. They all have to learn to live with each other, and at the same time cope with the grief which has consumed them all, with the help of Kate, Max's new Girl Friday.
This book can go from being very very funny one minute, then very very sad the next, and sometimes you want to swear at the author and say "NO, You Can't do THAT!"
It is a very uplifting novel, and although I say it can be sad, it is the sort of novel to read when your feeling down, to give you that extra push.
