Alternative Godfather Sequel

Entertaining, inasmuch as it yields the opportunity to revisit some of the old favorites from the Godfather saga, and certainly better than the actual 3rd installment of the movie series.

Entertaining, inasmuch as it yields the opportunity to revisit some of the old favorites from the Godfather saga, and certainly better than the actual 3rd installment of the movie series.
It felt bogged down a bit at times, but usually was enjoyable, and the characters were nicely drawn. The historical references were nice, also.
Godfather snobs may be put off by the dream sequence early, as I kind of was. Still, I think it wuld be fun for people who enjoy books about the MAFIA, especially about the Corleones.

Revenge as Only the Corleones Can Serve-Up!

The Godfather's Revenge is a fitting coda to Mario Puzo's classic world-view of America's crime families. In my humble opinion, Mark Winegardner has redeemed himself for the disappointing, "The Godfather Returns," by creating believable new characters and building upon the lesser-knowns. The reader will discover: how Tom Hagen shed his mortal coil; how politics and crime really are one-in-the-same; and why Michael Corleone outlasted all his contemporaries. Unlike "Return," Winegardner is truer to the characters and themes that made Puzo's novel the ultimate crime saga. I can only hope that the Puzo Estate will commission yet another Winegardner-penned Godfather novel. The last 100 pages had my heart racing and the stunning conclusion does not disappoint. I'm only sorry it took me three years to finally purchase and read it!

    Total Miss

    Characters were excellent and the plot was convoluted and thrilling- until the end. Instead of a big ending which tied everything up, the author let everything trickle away. In fact, my question was "Where's the revenge?" If the author's point was that Michael Corleone had lost his edge, this audio book illustrated that perfectly. But that could have been done in a much shorter work. This audio book fails the sniff test because the ending stinks
