Intrigues and clever

The book will take you through the sunset of the Don and his plans and machinations for his family to get clean. Clever, full of intrigues, crimes and power struggles. I Truly recommend it.

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!

The lost don

This is a mixed story nothing to do with the godfather or the sicilian it's really a story about Hollywood and the ups and downs and ins and outs of the movie bussiness .

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.
