Would you consider the audio edition of Omerta to be better than the print version?

No idea, I usually either buy a book or listen to a book. But I enjoyed the narrator.


What other book might you compare Omerta to, and why?

The Godfather, obviously, and being a big fan of the films I started reading/listening to books of Mario Puzo. I was not dissapointed, he has a real talent for letting you into the lives of both the police inspectors and the maffiosi and show you that good an bad is not all that black and white.


What about Richard Ferrone’s performance did you like?

I enjoyed the fact that his voice was very well suited to read out this kind of book. He really contributed to the atmosphere of the book. When listening for instance to the part set in Sicily, I really could picture myself there.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I enjoyed it but it did not make me cry nor laugh.


Any additional comments?

Well worth listening to!
