Summary

The Last Don is Mario Puzo at his finest - a masterful saga of the last great American crime family, the Clericuzios, and their powerful reach into Hollywood and Las Vegas.

Domenico Clericuzio is a wise and ruthless man who, in his old age, is determined to create a life free from criminal activities for his grandchildren. But as he strives to establish his heirs in legitimate society, secrets from his family's past spark a vicious and bloody war between cousins....

Too much Hollywood

Much like The Godfather meandering off into the minutiae of Johnny Fontaine this one is padded out with so much Hollywood I almost forgot it was about a Son. Unlike The Godfather the rest just didn't do it for me.

The Godfather Light!

Any additional comments?

I really enjoyed this book and flew through it as it was so entertaining. The characters are though rather shallow and one dimensional and at times it did remind me of an American TV mini-series!
But maybe I'm shallow too, as I loved it!

The lost don

This is a mixed story nothing to do with the godfather or the sicilian it's really a story about Hollywood and the ups and downs and ins and outs of the movie bussiness .

A bit slow paced but decent story and good character development that you could invest in.

Intrigues and clever

The book will take you through the sunset of the Don and his plans and machinations for his family to get clean. Clever, full of intrigues, crimes and power struggles. I Truly recommend it.
