About The Godfather Audiobook by Mario Puzo
The Godfather audiobook is a famous crime novel of Puzo, originally published in 1969 by G. P. Putnam’s Sons. The audiobook is about the story of a fiction Mafia in New York, headed by Don Vito Corleone, who became synonymous with the Italian Mafia. The novel covers the years from 1945 to 1955, and also provides the back story of Vito Corleone from early childhood to adulthood.
The Godfather is, in many ways, not just a novel – it is an experience, after which your life will never be the same again. I have not the least of doubts in calling it ‘the best, most influential and deep-cutting that I have ever read.’ In its sheer departure from being just a general, run-of-the-mill tale about idolizing a particular individual, the novel presents to us with a ringside view of the workings of the Mafia, and more importantly, the lives of the people who are involved in it, directly or indirectly.
When The Godfather Audiobook by Mario Puzo was first released, critics talked about it as one of the greatest novels which was “big, turbulent, highly entertaining”. It soon became a part of the USA’s national culture, as well as a trilogy of landmark motion pictures.
Now, in this newly-repackaged audiobook series, listeners old and new can experience this timeless tale of crime for themselves. From the lavish wedding of Don Corleone’s daughter where he entertains guests and conducts business…to his son, Michael, who takes his father’s place to fight for his family…to the bloody climax where all family business is finished, The Godfather is an epic story of family, loyalty, and how “men of honor” live in their own world, and die by their own laws. The audiobook introduced Italian criminal terms like consigliere, caporegime, Cosa Nostra, and omertà to an English-speaking audience.
