This review is from: Gomorra: Viaggio Nell'impero Economico e Nel Sogno di Dominio Della Camorra (Strade Blu) (Paperback)
The various Italian criminal organisations have always attracted much attention.We all like to read about them.Unfortunately,few books are worth a second look.Some owe their fame to a screened version like THE GODFATHER films,acknowledged masterpieces based on Mario Puzo's forgettable novel.Away from the American mafia ,some like John Dickie's COSA NOSTRA,in its Sicilian setting, are wonderfully informative and entertaining.But in my eyes the award must go to Roberto Saviano's disturbing,harrowing story of the Napolitan Camorra.Brilliantly written,it reads like a first class thriller and yet it is all true.When you think that the writer is only in his twenties,...

5.0 out of 5 stars A matter of entrepreneurship, 6 Mar 2010

After reading this book, I couldn't stop myself from thinking what would be Italy nowadays like, if camorra's entrepreneurial skills had been used for creating regular legal businesses rather than criminal activities. The complexity of the organization is at the same time amazing and shocking.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gomorra: Viaggio Nell'impero Economico e Nel Sogno di Dominio Della Camorra (Strade Blu) (Paperback)
This is a brilliant book.
It makes you understand that there is a part of Italy which is completely different from the rest of it. It opens your eyes and your mind.
Saviano is a modern hero.
