With The Family Corleone Audiobook, Ed Falco becomes the third author to contribute to the Godfather series. Specifically, it details the formative events of the Corleone family business from Fall 1933 through the summer of 1935.

With The Family Corleone Audiobook, Ed Falco becomes the third author to contribute to the Godfather series. He undoubtedly benefited from having a screenplay to work from by Mario Puzo, the man who started it all. It’s a prequel that could serve as an excellent starting point for readers new to this crime saga. According to Francis Ford Coppola, this is part of a time period that Puzo referred to as the happy years when they killed everyone and no one killed them

This is an outstanding prequel to the original "Godfather" novel and movie, following the Corleone family from the events after the bulk of the flashback portion of "The Godfather Part II" but before the final scene of that movie, when a young Michael Corleone announced to his stunned family that he had enlisted in the Navy.

This novel focuses on the backstory not just of Vito Corleone, but of Sonny, Luca Brasi and, to a lesser extent, Tom Hagen. Brasi comes across as not just "a scary guy," as Kay once called him, but an inhuman monster; some of the passages involving his atrocities are difficult reading, but they could explain a lot in terms of how he's portrayed in the first movie. Also figuring prominently is the original Corleone consigliere, Genco Abbandando, whose role in the family was only hinted at in "The Godfather Part II." The younger Corleone children — Fredo, Michael and Connie — are of course just kids but make the occasional cameo appearance. Other characters from the novel and movies are included in important roles that are wisely not just gratuitous.

This is an engrossing book; one hopes that it becomes enshrined in "Godfather" canon as a movie, which I believe is a possibility. For now, though, fans of the saga should pick up this novel; you won't be disappointed.

I got the book for my mother for her birthday. I had a copy but I loaned to my sister to read. Excellent read and I could tell Mario Puzos touch was ALL in the book. Eddie Falco did a wonderful job as well. I'm hoping in my life time soon, they will make this a movie soon. I really enjoyed the story about Luca Brasi & how he came to know Don Vito Corleone. Good read.

Although The Godfather will always be the best of this series i really thought this book was very well written. Everything you want in a good story a great flow, great characters and a well thought out plot.

As a big fan of "The Godfather" trilogy of movies, as well as the Mario Puzo original novel, I was hopeful that "Family Corleone" by Ed Falco was going to bring something interesting and fresh to the story. After being disappointed with other post-Puzo attempts at the story of the Corleone's, I have to say that Falco's novel did the characters and the saga proud.

"The Family Corleone" is set in the early 1930's, as the Corleone Family jockeys for position and power in New York City's underworld. We see Vito Corleone in his prime as his looks to expand his criminal empire. Facing danger from a powerful rival and his allies, the Don bides his time as he plans his next moves, which will either bring him ultimate power or death.

In Falco's novel, we get to see the advent of the "Five Families", and old familiar characters, such as Tessio, Clemenza, and Tom Hagen. But there are two particular story features that really put some meat on the bone of Falco's effort.

The first is the initiation into the "family business" of Santino "Sonny" Corleone, who in "The Family Corleone" is in his late teens. Against his father's wishes, the hot-tempered Sonny begins his career in crime with fellow Italian and Irish teens, unbeknownst to the Don. Soon Sonny's gang runs afoul of other mob elements, which in turn draw in the Corleone Family and set them on a collision course with the powerful boss, Joe Mariposa.

The other interesting character study is that of the feared Corleone enforcer, Luca Brasi. As Falco begins his story, Brasi is an independent low-level leader of his own gang, who find themselves the frequent victims of Sonny Corleone's gang of thieves. "The Family Corleone" begins to then trace Brasi's dark and horrific descent into the most feared man in the underworld, and eventually, Vito Corleone's private messenger of death.

While Mario Puzo set the bar so high that no one else's treatment of the Corleone family's saga can compete, Ed Falco's novel is a very enjoyable read and, in my opinion, breaks new ground with these fascinating literary characters.

Very entertaining! Based on a Mario Puzo screenplay and authorized by Puzo's estate, it is written in a similar style as The Godfather. There is a lot of focus on Sonny and Luca Brasi. It does a good job of conveying what it was like growing up in the Corleone family.

Even though this was fiction I still enjoyed it very much...especially after getting Thanksgiving dinner on the table and wondering how in the world did those Italian women ever get enough cooked to feed the family for one meal time after time. I very much like reading about the culture of an Italian family and even more so about the 'family' when those around them did not even know of the connection. The 'families' from the different countries and how they worked together or against each other was fascinating. My book came from Amazon and I would rec ommend it to anyone who lke a good read.

Mr. Falco is a very good writer. He colors the period of time very well. His characters are well rounded out. In several cases, however, his fleshing outs of events of the Godfather (flashbooks in the original, here as in "real-time") are inconsistent with Puzo's novel. I would recommend to a Godfather fan but be aware that these exist.

Ed Falco did a wonderful job. It shows the rise of the Corelone family. Mario Puzo would have been proud. Vito tries to keep his children from being part of his business. But alas it doesn't happen. Santino with his temper gets him in trouble. It's a book you just can't put down. It is a must read for Godfather fans.
