Better than anticipated - Joe Barrett adds class

After doing The Godfather (excellent) and The Sicilian (ok story, poor performance) I didn't know what to expect with The Last Don - but despite having no link to the earlier books, this was a great journey and Joe Barrett has such a great voice that it elevates every character he reads.

Too much Hollywood

Much like The Godfather meandering off into the minutiae of Johnny Fontaine this one is padded out with so much Hollywood I almost forgot it was about a Son. Unlike The Godfather the rest just didn't do it for me.

The Godfather Light!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book and flew through it as it was so entertaining. The characters are though rather shallow and one dimensional and at times it did remind me of an American TV mini-series!
But maybe I'm shallow too, as I loved it!

Classic Mario Puzo

Not on power with The Godfather but still a great story with great characters. Revenge at its finest.
