ED FALCO THE FAMILY CORLEONE PDF

Burning Man Falco remains one of the most powerful short fiction writers of his generation. This synthesis——of the sinister and immanent, evil and sublime——gives his work its indelible emotional depth and uncanny resonance. No one has written anything quite like these deeply engrossing, lovely-harrowing stories. Falco has more talent than ought to be legal or mortal.

As a novel, the There many different ways to try and review this novel but I suppose the easiest way is the way that Paramount approached it when they launched the lawsuit against the Puzo estate As a novel, the book is an entertaining read. It has the basic tenets of any mafia story present. And they ARE characters most Godfather fans will know. There is nothing new here. Why he was the focus of this novel is questionable both in content and marketability.

There is nothing to really demonstrate or explain why Vito became the character readers love so much later on. A bigger issue that hit me personally was the lack of accurate research. The author chooses to bring in real life mobsters which is always a controversial choice.

You have to be so amazingly diligent with your research when doing this and in this the author failed. My issue was a much bigger one that even an average reader will likely note: could there be more mentions of Al Capone? I mean, really, this got so tiresome. Vito is in NY and anyone who has done any nonfiction reading on the mafia knows that he would be answering to the likes of Luciano, Lansky and Costello and not Al Capone.

Luciano and his family neither feared nor answered to Capone over in Chicago and most legitimate history books of the time will note how he was just a thorn in their side for his constant publicity. Even more damaging is the time period in question. Well, even a quick google search will tell you that would simply be impossible.

In Capone had his famous arrest for tax evasion and by has already been sent to Alcatraz. The writing style was another thing that nagged me. It was clearly written with a screenplay in mind and this becomes more and more evident as the novel wears on. The first few chapters are much stronger in style: we are treated to inner thoughts, well written if sparse settings, and just a generally more flowing storyline. By midway, though, it degenerates into almost all dialogue. Even the descriptions of events are very timeline affected: he hits him, he bleeds, they clean their weapons and run away.

Screenplay writing Visual yes but not a visual approach in the sense of a novel where we are taken through the tense emotions and regrets or pleasure such an event would cause. Will it transfer to the screen? Undoubtedly since it would require little rewriting to make it a screenplay. Does that make it great reading for a novel? Unfortunately, no. Once I read a few chapters I sat back and realized that I should read this more as just another mafia novel than a novel about the Corleone family.

And, as a standard mainstream mafia novel this book does well. For many, this is unacceptable. It just is sort of Neither good nor bad and kind of irrelevant. Entertaining as a novel, flawed in execution but not nearly bad enough to cause some great harm to the original Godfather.

Is it such a resounding success that it deserves a movie that will make Paramount tons of money? With the cost of movie making these days, this novel is just not one that will stand the test of time. It lacks the emotional ties that brought the original to life. The writing style would clearly make it easy to adapt to screen but this is not a new story or even a creative retelling of an old one.

So, overall opinion? Enjoy this book as a mafia novel and not a part of the Godfather story you already know. If you can do that, it should be an entertaining read.
