The sequel to Puzo's epic and brutal Mafia classic The Godfather. Once again Puzo brings the history of the Corleone family to life.
Michael Corleone's exile in Sicily is ending, but on the instructions of his father, The Godfather, he must bring back to him the young man known as Salvatore Giuliano - if he can find him.
At sea amid the treacheries of a brutal and unfamiliar land, Michael must find a way through the labyrinthine deceits that surround him while Giuliano prepares himself for a final confrontation with Don Croce, capo di capi of the Sicilian Mafia.
A novel of explosive suspense, heroic action - and evil on an epic scale.
In the hands of Mario Puzo's brilliantly sinister talent, the listener comes to know again the terrible magic of the Mafia.

Sounds like Family Guy does The Godfather
The Godfather was a great book and the narration by Joe Montegna was also great. By contrast, The Sicilian sounds like a Dragnet spoof where some wiseguy speaks quickly out of the side of his mouth but without getting to the punchline. The different characters sound like they were recorded on an old tape recorder in various locations by gangster impressionists, then badly edited in some time later. There's no flow - the characters sound out of context.
The Priest - if an Italian Mickey Mouse Balloon Priest could talk, this is how I think he'd sound.
The narrator spoke too quickly and it didn't seem to match the pace of the story. I believe for another kind of book he'd actually be good, but for this, it just didn't work. I suspect the other actors could probably also have done better under different circumstances (did they have to record their own parts at home and send them in?)
Mario Puzo can write a good story even if the editing and accents were distracting
I think I'll listen to a sample before buying next time...
Stick with it
