Michael Corleone is returning to the U.S. after the two-year exile to Sicily in which reader left him in

The Godfather.

But he is ordered to bring with him the young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, who is the unofficial ruler of northwestern Sicily. In his fight "to make Sicilians free people," the young folk hero, based on the real-life Giuliano of the 1940's, has made both the police and the Mafia his enemies. So when Don Croce Malo, chief of the Sicilian Mafia, and the policemen who has been tracking Guiliano each offer to help Corleone find the elusive Robin Hood, betrayal seems inevitable.

Mario Puzo has created a sequel to The Godfather that is every bit as compelling and dramatic. But The Sicilian is a distinct literary achievement in its historical inspiration and its vivid portrait of Sicilian peasant life.

    " Another fine book - read this one night while on alert duty in the Air Force. Real vivid characters, good story - cannot help but picture Brando & Pacino in the garden, telling this tale. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 1/24/2014

    " I liked the Sicilian..The movie (made for TV) was a dud. Kind of a "Robin Hood" tale. Always enjoy the way Puzo paints a vivid image of Italy, and in this case, Sicily. Typical themes of conspiracy, corruption, loyalty, but somehow only Puzo can do it like this.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gaurav Mathur | 1/19/2014

    " Many think its even better than 'The Godfather'. I don't disagree. Brilliant storytelling, and it becomes even more captivating when you know that almost everything in the book really happened. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Wiggins | 4/13/2013

    " Loved this book as a fun read - which is why no higher stars... Rating is so hard! But I would say it's a 5-star fun read, but not a 5-star knock-me-on-my-butt amazingness like I rated Les Mis or something... hence the 3 stars. Plus it takes place in Sicily, different culture, etc. It was fun. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Frank Maiorana | 2/5/2013

    " This is an unbelievable journey into Sicily and the makings of where the mafia began and it's original purpose. Mario Puzo really makes you feel like you present in the story watching it unfold instead of reading words on a page. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dodi Mekenx | 1/17/2013

    " Another great story about mafia. I like Puzzo's style. You never know ending the story until you finish the book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eli | 4/3/2011

    " Liked Godfather better, but good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve | 1/17/2011

    " One of my favorite all-time books, I read this one in High School after finishing the Godfather. This book is like a 1940's Sicilian version of Robin Hood, packed with crooked mobsters and great characters. I loved this book "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Feliciano | 1/16/2011

    " I read The Godfather first which led me to The Sicilian which I enjoyed in a different way than The Godfather because it was about a Guy who decides to become somebody no matter what the cost. He took on the Godfathers of Sicily and gained their respect but more than that the respect of the people. "

    " One of my personal favorites. "So Die, all who betray Gulliano!" "
