Top Customer Reviews
In between stories about his family, there are critiques and comments about all of the Godfather films. What I enjoyed was the great comments about Part III, a much maligned film. Yes, GIII has flaws, some fatal, but it is an intelligent film and there are many aspects of it that fit into the Saga. Santopietro breaks it all down and puts it in a great perspective.
Fans of the Saga will enjoy this book immensely and, as a true Godfather fan, I recommend it.
