I was at a friends house for dinner and wandered into his den. He has a wall of books. I pulled out The Godfather. I said that I had never read the book. Everyone at the dinner who had read the book chimed in that it was one of the best books ever. Well the movie is certainly one of the finest ever made so it would make sense that the book is excellent.
I picked up the book and finished it in a few days. It is probably the first time I have read a book after seeing the movie not before. Doing it this way gives you a little peek into how the screenplay was written for The Godfather.
The book is fantastic. I am so glad I read it. If you were looking for something to dive into for some stellar summer reading sometimes reaching back in time makes sense.
