The Family Corleone

THE FAMILY CORLEONE                   ED FALCO
Posted: July 27, 2013

The Family CorleoneNew York, 1933. The city and the nation are in the depths of the Great Depression. The crime families of New York have prospered in this time, but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organizations will rise and which will face a violent end.
For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important that his family's future. While his youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation, and his adopted son Tom Hagen is a college student, he worries most about Sonny, his eldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny-17 years-old, impatient and reckless-wants something else: To follow in his father's footsteps and become a part of the real family business.
An exhilarating and profound novel of tradition and violence, of loyalty and betrayal, The Family Corleone will appeal to the legions of fans who can never get enough of The Godfather, as well as introduce it to a whole new generation.



HUBBY'S REVIEW:

Really liked this book. The author tells the story of mostly Sonny, and how he got into the family business. Most of the other characters from the book the God Father are in the story as well. The author Ed Falco did a good job staying true to the story from the book. Taking you up to Sonny getting married. There is a lot of action and family story lines. I also liked the fact that he used Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. For me that helped the story along a little better, not that it needed any help. I just liked that touch. A good story.
