    Couldn't put it down

    Seriously good read. The honesty is amazing and will definitely give you insight into the hard life of being the child of a mobster.

    Wow

    Not much to this book. After reading it I finally see just how bad of a person Henry Hill really was. How he beat his wife and children. I had planned on buying other books by Henry Hill but will not give that slime ball a penny of my money.

    Very good book

    This is not the typical 'mafia' story. It is not a story about goodfellas and mobsters as much as it is a story of what impact a life of crime has on family members. This book gives you insight into the mafia in a way no other book does. At first it started kind of slow and I almost put it down but it really takes off. It is as shocking and as funny as much as the subject matter will allow. I have to say by the books end I really enjoyed it.

    Great Read

    This was a great, sad story . After seeing the movie 'Goodfella's' , you form and opinion of Henry Hill through the actor who played him (Ray Liotta). But after reading this book , I have a totally different and apalling view of Henry Hill and how he was as a person, husband and father. I enjoyed reading the view from both children and how different they were. I wish the book was longer. It was very easy reading and the pages flew by.
