About The Sicilian Audiobook by Mario Puzo – The Godfather 02
The Sicilian Audiobook (know as The Godfather audiobook 2) is a novel by Italian-American author Mario Puzo. Published in 1984, it is regarded as The Godfather’s literary sequel, standing as a groundwork of his writing – a mix of lushly romantic, unforgettable tale of bloodshed, justice, and treachery.
In The Sicilian Audiobook by Mario Puzo, the spelling of Salvatore Giuliano’s name was intentionally changed by Puzo to “Guiliano”. This novel, though a work of fiction, is based on the real-life exploits of Giuliano.
In 1987, The Sicilian was adapted into a film, directed by Michael Cimino. In this film adaption, due to copyright issue, the characters of Michael Corleone and Clemenza were not included.
The plot of The Sicilian Audiobook
The year is 1950. After two years of exile in Sicily, Michael Corleone is returning to the USA. However, the Godfather has ordered him to bring a young Sicilian bandit, Salvatore Guiliano, back with him. Guiliano is the unofficial leader of North Western Sicily, a modern Robin Hood who fights “to make Sicilians people free”, defying corruption and the Cosa Nostra. In his way to realize his intention, he made both policeman and mafia his enemies.
Now, in this complelling and dramatic sequel to the Godfather, listerners can feel suspensely Michael Corleone’s fate is entwined with the dangerous legend of Salvatore Guiliano: warrior, lover, and the ultimate Siciliano.
Mario Puzo has created a sequel to The Godfather that is every bit as compelling and dramatic. But The Sicilian is a distinct literary achievement in its historical inspiration and its vivid portrait of Sicilian peasant life.
