Item Details

New York, 1933. The city and the nation are in the depths of the Great Depression. The crime families of New York have prospered in this time, but with the coming end of Prohibition, a battle is looming that will determine which organizations will rise and which will face a violent end. For Vito Corleone, nothing is more important that his family's future. While his youngest children, Michael, Fredo, and Connie, are in school, unaware of their father's true occupation, and his adopted son Tom Hagen is a college student, he worries most about Sonny, his eldest child. Vito pushes Sonny to be a businessman, but Sonny-17 years-old, impatient and reckless-wants something else: To follow in his father's footsteps and become a part of the real family business. An exhilarating and profound novel of tradition and violence, of loyalty and betrayal, The Family Corleone will appeal to the legions of fans who can never get enough of The Godfather, as well as introduce it to a whole new generation.

A great book for any Godfather fan. This book covers about 2 years in Sonny's life, from age 17-19. You see how he comes into the family business and you get glimpses of the relationship with the other crhildren (Friedo, Michael, even Connie).
Very interestingly is the background story of how Tom Hagen comes into the family and a strong backstory on Luca Brasi.
Reading this made me want to re-watch the original Godfather as most of those characters are referenced (even Lucy Mancini, Connie's bridesmaid and the mother of Sonny's illegitimate son in film III)
