The Godfather is an extraordinary novel which has become a modern-day classic. Puzo pulls us inside the violent society of the Mafia and its gang wars.

The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power. His command post is a fortress on Long Island from which he presides over a vast underground empire that includes the rackets, gambling, bookmaking, and unions. His influence runs through all levels of American society, from the cop on the beat to the nation's mighty.

Mario Puzo, a master storyteller, introduces us to unforgettable characters, and the elements of this world explode to life in this violent and impassioned chronicle.

A multi-voice production, including narrators Dan Price, Lorna Johnson, Don Stroup, Terry Bozeman, Richard Lavin, Amy Sunshine, Larry Brandenburg, Rose Nadolsky, Peter Syvertsen, Jane Brody, Bob O'Donnell, Joe Van Slyke, Marie Chambers, Si Osborne, Chuck Winter, Charles Fuller, and Malcolm Rothman.

    " I would prefer to give it four-and-a-half stars as I feel five should be reserved for "the 'absolute' classics" and other such monumental works, but as it is.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kara | 2/12/2014

    " The movie was so much better than the book. This is the only book I have ever said that about. Coppola did some really good editing to chop out all the random crap in this novel (ie- 2 pages about some irrelevant character's vaginal reconstructive surgery???) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 2/12/2014

    " I'm glad - very, sincerely glad - Francis Ford Coppola saw what he did in this novel. A rare instance where the movie was better (and then some) than the book. "

    " THE MASTERPIECE "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aisha | 12/17/2013

    " Mario Puzo's debut novel about the Italian-American mafia is striking in its simplicity. A timeless tale about family and loyalty molded in the ends of a masterful artist. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cheryl | 12/15/2013

    " was a good book, better then the movie as always.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Barbara | 12/14/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter Griffin | 11/20/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suchit Meshram | 10/13/2013

    " I watched the movie series first. But I was not satisfied. Then I read the book. Can I have the rough pages of it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christina | 8/27/2013

    " Wonderful wonderful action-packed novel. I especially liked the women in this story, which surprised me based on its reputation as a novel that reeks testosterone! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joni | 7/22/2013

    " I was given this to read for Italian homework, and enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. Chilling in places. Sad in others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Frank Roberts | 7/21/2013

    " I don't say this often: the movie was better. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cyn | 7/8/2013

    " Don't know why it took me over 30 years to read this! Impressed with how close the film stayed to it. Really enjoyed the way Puzo described the characters. His writing really pulled me in even though I knew everything that would happen. So much fun to get as engrossed in this book as I did. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sashi | 7/6/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Letitia | 7/10/2012

    " I read this book when I was much younger. It taught me how power structures work and are set up. Puzo gives the reader an in-depth insight into his character that are to be rivaled by few authors. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charlie Londono | 11/24/2011

    " I loved it and of course now am thinking of all the things the movie changed. Why does the big screen do that?! I don't know how people can NOT like this book. Easy read, good plot, interesting characters. The whole thing is just plain ole good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 5/23/2011

    " Simply superb. Nothing more to say. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Madina | 5/18/2011

    " What an excellent read! This story is not only that of the mafioso life and gangsters, but this book is about family; how family is the most important part of anyone's life. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 5/16/2011

    " Excellent book. I loved the pace of the story and the occasional flashbacks. Very well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 5/15/2011

    " Well...the movie was a 5, but the book was no slouch. Puzo's nove was not artistic, but it worked. "

    " Muy bueno, tiene una parte medio lenta, pero en general es buenísimo. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurie | 5/9/2011

    " I loved this book even more the second time around...I read it many years ago. The charachters are rich and engaging and the storyline is great. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 James | 5/8/2011

    " Very simple review this... if you are at all interested in this story, watch the film. The book is stodgy, slow and poorly written, though the underlying story is compelling, and done so much more justice by Coppola "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jolene | 5/7/2011

    " Hooray for fiction! The pulpier, the better! "

    " This is a book I've re-read several times & a movie that is in my collection & never will tire of. It's a classic. It's a must-read & a must-see, even if it's not your usual genre. Do it! "
