THE WORST TRASH I HAVE EVER READ

I have been reading (am almost done with) Mario Puzo's The Last Don. A stupider, more inane novel I do not think I have EVER read. Pippi de Lena (pronounced ¿peepee¿ by me; he¿s a real pisser), the Bruglione, Hammer; Athena Aquitaine (sounds like something you¿d use for...
I have been reading (am almost done with) Mario Puzo's The Last Don. A stupider, more inane novel I do not think I have EVER read. Pippi de Lena (pronounced ¿peepee¿ by me; he¿s a real pisser), the Bruglione, Hammer; Athena Aquitaine (sounds like something you¿d use for sunburn or dry eye), the most beautiful and most perfectly formed and intelligent, internationally famous actress with the autistic daughter; Cross (Croccifuxio) de Lena, Peepee¿s incredibly handsome son and sometimes partner in crime, owner of a Las Vegas nightclub and Athena¿s love interest; Falene Fant (or Fart, as I see it), whose black ass (the most beautiful anyone has ever seen) is used as Athena¿s ass¿s double in the movie Messalina; the dentist with the girlfriend who is having sex with her German Shepherd (it¿s such a turn on for him), and, of course, the Don Clericuzio, a doddering old dufus who needs a pipe bomb placed up his rear end (maybe they can hire Falene Fart to do the job). I could go on, but I think you get the picture.

    The Last Don

    The Last Don written by Mario Puzo ¿ review by Brandon McKay<BR/><BR/><BR/> Domencio Clericuzio is the Last Don, a wise and ruthless old man who is determined to see his heirs established in a legitimate society but whose vision is threatened when secrets from the family¿s past spark a feud between two blood cousins. The Don is the most powerful man of his time and if the Clericuzio Family was the holy church for the many Mafia families scattered over the U.S. then the head of the family, Don Domencio, was the Pope admired not only for his intelligence, but also for his strength. He was a devout catholic: payment for sins in this world, forgiveness in the next. Every debt had to paid, and he was strict in his judgment in this world. He controlled an empire so large and has enough money to the point were he hopes his dream of legitimacy will be brought to reality. But that¿s what dreams are for, to be torn apart. Croccifixo and Dante, the two cousins, both grow up hidden from the life of crime but inevitably, they uncover the secrets of the past.<BR/> The Last Don is a great story that takes readers inside the equally corrupt worlds of the Mafia, the movie industry, and casinos, where beautiful actresses and ruthless hitmen are ruled by lust, and violence. Where sleazy producers, and greedy studio heads are drunk with power, where crooked cops and desperate gamblers play dangerous games of betrayal, and where one man controls them all¿ <BR/> Murder, extortion, jealousy, and romance, this book is full of it. I love the way Mario Puzo writes his stories; it¿s almost as if he lived the life of the Mob himself. If you read and like this book then you should also read the Godfather series, also by the same author.
