THE GODFATHER by Mario Puzo (1969)

The biggest small book I have ever read! And chances are you may have too, but if you haven’t, and enjoy crime mysteries, it’s a great read and of course much better than the film. With its brilliant and brutal portrayal of the Corleone family, ‘The Godfather’ instantly burned its way into the national consciousness and became one of the bestselling novels in publishing history.
