If you took out the pages that describe how good looking and morally pure our hero Turi is, a 400+ page book would be about 175 pages long. Short on actual story, Puzo spends his time fawning over one particular character. The hard cover would make a good door stop.
A far fetched character highlights this "mythic novel". The characterization is pretty weak as you are just told what they are like. Often times the author goes over the top with the character descriptions but then backs up just before the descriptions become farcical. Good people are handsome, evil people are not. This probably should have been a graphic novel. The narrative is descriptive and moves at a decent pace but there are no real internal conflicts with the characters. Read it if you like mythologies or are interested in the author's works.
Just as great probably even better than The Godfather.
Great book. Surprisingly quick read.
