Authors Henry Hill and Bryon Schreckengost, have obviously worked hard on creating a unique and informative tour of the 'real' New York. And with Henry's true life experiences, have delivered an exciting and nostalgic look at the infamous places where the mob hung out (and in some cases still do).
I thoroughly enjoyed it and can't wait to get back to NYC to check out some of the recommended eateries and other venues!
It reads like someone who's trying to live up to the stereotype of a mobster as opposed to a real person who lived and breathed it. Mostly, it's a collection of old and tired mob cliches without anything new or insightful about Henry Hill or the New York mob. It reads like cardboard must taste.
The second thing that really bugged me is the fact that the book is littered with what I'm guessing is mob surveillance photos yet no description is given of who the people are or what the context of the photo is. They don't seem to be connected with the text in any way. It's just baffling.
If this book does have any value its that it does give street addresses to places mentioned in the book and the movie. So if you are in New York and just can't wait to see 'where they buried spider' or 'Tommy's mother's house' this book would make a good reference. Otherwise, don't waste your money.
I'm not sure if I'd even want to go to some of these places, but they're fun to read about nonetheless. This is no literary masterpiece, I mean the guy's a gangster- but it's refreshing prose.
this thing is going on my coffeetable for sure!
It's really easy to read, nicely researched and great fun.
