4 Original and UniqueDon1Juan | 25/01/2008 | See all Don1Juan's reviews (2)Puzo shows us that the Mafia is nothing compared to the corruption that exists around us - from Government employees to authors themselves.This unique story shows us that this author is one of the bes story-tellers that the world has ever seen. Every page in this book is filled with surprises. It also shows that not everything is what it seems, and that everythig can be bought with money, and a little persuasion. There can be no honesty in a man that intends to survive this world that is driven with greed, lust and power. But one man's values can be enough to make him keep his head up high.Puzo highlights the fact that the world is a dog eat dog world, and like in "The Godfather", everybody has to "make his own bones" and hold to his values to gain respect.
