The outline for this book was done before the third Godfather Movie was made and Mario Puzo took sick and died. Mark Winegardner who had worked with Mr. Puzo and also published the Godfather Returns finished this book in fine style. I enjoyed reading it very much.
I really enjoyed this book. The author did a good job of breathing new life into the characters from the oringial Godfather and putting his own spin on them. He's made a fascinating, cross-generational, multi-layered story about the Corleone family. If you read the original Godfather and The Godfather's Return (i'm pretty sure that's what it's called) you'll like this book, otherwise you might be really confused.
