This was just OK. The Michael Corleone link is totally unnecessary so felt like a cynical way to sell the book. Adds nothing to the story-and is short. I found the path to legend totally unrealistic for the main character. If you not are interested in bandits living in a mountain give this a miss. Finished the book and felt short changed. This has no relation to the Godfather book, so don't buy if that's what you are looking for.

Strange. I always expected Godfather 2 to folow on with How they settled in Vegas. Instead there is a rather plodding novel about a Sicilian bandit. The Corleones hardly figure and could be missed altogether without changing the story in a deelp way.

Probably woorth reading once but don't expect the pace to drag you along.

Don't expect a story about Michael Corleone, but something completely different that is still a great read like The Godfather. Oh and the twist at the end will grab you!

A historical novel of the Borgia family. Well conceived and of course, very well written with the help of his long term muse.

This is a book that stays with you after reading.

I learned a lot. Fascinating!

Mario Puzo's Godfather is one of the greatest books ever and a six star book. The Sicilian is good but not great mainly due to the story line not being so gripping.

Great read felt like I was in Sicily. Many years after I read The Godfather this brought it all back.

Extremely interesting read, if you've read/watched the godfather and liked it, give it a shot. It's not as dense as the Godfather but more light and very easy to read. Plus, it is very interesting to read about Italian culture that cuts across the Mafia.
