New 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good book for 'Godfather' fans! Having been made an eternal fan of the 'Godfather' series after reading Mario Puzo's original book, I was amazed to find this book recently released on the shelf. I had to buy it! Having now gotten around to reading it and finishing it, I must say I was impressed. The flow of this book is very different from 'The Godfather'. It focusses more on short-term; individual chapters, and the stories that the long list of characters engage in. There is the hot, there is the sad, there is the horror, there is the romantic, there is the action, and there is the loyalty and there is the gold. I must say that my favourite part of the book was the romance between Sonny and Sandra. Bottom line: if you are a 'Godfather' fan, read it!
