Summary:

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.

    Absolutely required reading for any Godfather aficionado! Answers all the questions about how Vito Corleone came to have so much power. The narrator is wonderful, brings this to life and make it so enjoyable that I can listen to over and over again.

  • Jackie Vance

    Excellent! I wanted the audiobook to keep going. I liked the hearing the development of the characters you don't get by say watching a movie.
