The story i I read this a few years ago and completely forgot to review it here. Not very interesting to me. Its main hero is the bandit Salvatore Giuliano, who is portrayed rather too sympathetically as a kind of Robin Hood character, robbing the rich to help the poor. Endless driving to other places to meet more people and talk, talk, talk. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews. But as it turns out the book is about Turi and Michael is hardly in it.

Nov 15, Orinoco Womble tidy bag and all rated it did not like it Shelves: He shares half the earnings of banditry with the common people.

Puzzo reading The Sicilianthe same idea, or theme, creeps further out of the shadows and permits the light to artfully sketch its image. And perhaps the burden falls to Sicily, the histories and circumstances, for creating a world which demands that we choose to survive tragically by sjciliano methods or live heroically by our own. To my surprise I feel immense contempt for reading a supposedly praised book of Puzo because I actually find it extremely disappointing.

Don’t have a Kindle? Whatever it might be,I honestly beleive ‘The Sicillian’ is far more heart-breaking than ‘The Godfather’ both the books and the men wrapped in their names.

So when Don Croce Malo, chief of the Sicilian Mafia, and the policemen who has been tracking Guiliano each offer to help Corleone find the elusive Robin Hood, betrayal seems inevitable. Reading Mario Puzo is a new experience for siciljano, and this is only my second to truly compare sicciliano against his own. For someone who has just got into books and reading a book every ten days,it was too much to swallow.


El Siciliano

Nevertheless, this book makes for a great read. Puzo claims that the Mafia were behind the disatrous results of this attack, and this might well have been the case to some extent.

The second best thing about the book is its character building. IMO, don’t bother with this one, just read the original Godfather.

Nov 18, Vikalp Trivedi rated it liked it Shelves: Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. The big old “suprise reveal” at the end was totally predictable; Puzo began to telegraph that particular punch in the first half of this very long book, so by the time it landed, it was hardly even a tap. The story seeks no justification for the actions of all involved and shows quite clearly how all parties involved in Sicily are too blame for any injustice that has happened there.

He learns to control the most powerful Mafia family America has ever seen. The story tells about the history of Sicily, the face of the Mafia [which is not called that way at all in Sicily] and how Turi Guiliano became a sort of Robin Hood while robbing from the rich and giving to the poor.

Then we drag the story through the obligatory “sweeping saga” thing, ensuring a nice thick “airport novel” of over pages Amazon Rapids Fun stories for kids on the go.

Moving on, the theme of the book is somewhat ambiguous yet the countless incidents of the story surely amplified aspects of Loyalty and Pride. This book is about survival, be a antagonist or protagonist who survives wins.

Jul 31, Ram rated it really liked it Shelves: Puzo is truly a Crime Mastermind!!! The second best thing about the book is its ‘The Sicilian’ is the sequel to the cult classic ‘The Godfather’ and chronicles the times of Michael Corleone’s exile in Sicily.
