It is unfair to compare "The Last Don" with "The Godfather" because "The Godfather" was in, and still remains, in a class all by itself. That being said, The Last Don is still a first-class, engaging and entertaining read.

from the box:

"To the Clericuzio family, life is like a box of hand grenades.

Mario Puzo is back with a vengeance in his first Mafia novel since The Godfather, a thrilling saga of the last great American crime family and its reach into Hollywood and Las Vegas...

The Last Don proves once again that Mario Puzo knows where the bodies are buried."

If you liked the Godfather series, this book is a must. I personally lost interest in it, but that doesn't mean you will.

I hate to be one of those people that say "the movie was better" but to me the movie was better. I found the book slow and I losr interest quickly. I ended up just skipping around and reading certain parts. It is very well written though and if you like mafia/mob stories, I don't really, then you'll love it.
