"Puzo is a master storyteller."
After Mario Puzo wrote his internationally acclaimed The Godfather, he has often been imitated but never equaled. Puzo's classic novel, The Sicilian, stands as a cornerstone of his work--a lushly romantic, unforgettable tale of bloodshed, justice, and treachery. . . .
The year is 1950. Michael Corleone is nearing the end of his exile in Sicily. The Godfather has commanded Michael to bring a young Sicilian bandit named Salvatore Guiliano back with him to America. But Guiliano is a man entwined in a bloody web of violence and vendettas. In Sicily, Guiliano is a modern day Robin Hood who has defied corruption--and defied the Cosa Nostra. Now, in the land of mist-shrouded mountains and ancient ruins, Michael Corleone's fate is entwined with the dangerous legend of Salvatore Guiliano: warrior, lover, and the ultimate Siciliano.
Interesting book, if you enjoyed The Godfather you should probably give this a shot.Published 18 days ago by Michael Stack
Well paced, beautifully written, intriguing, and so very tragic. The stories of Michael Corleone and Turi Giuliano woven together like fine Sicilian embroidery.Published 25 days ago by Atanaz Mykvei
Mario Puzo is probably best known for The Godfather, which was published in 1969. Puzo won the Oscar for the screenplay of both “The Godfather” and its follow-up. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Craobh Rua
I was disappointed that the book did not deal more with Michael Corleone's exile to Sicily, which is what I expected the book to be about.Published 1 month ago by Reece
