Mario Puzo’s novel, The Godfather, has dominated the cinema and book culture for years and left behind an unparalleled legacy. The superlatives used to describe the life and times of Don Corleone, a renowned Sicilian mobster and a feared mafia lord of the Cosa Nostra in the 60’s New York and his familial ties portray a powerful picture of the mafia world. The characters have been described as gritty and hardened at first; but slowly the novel reveals how greed and ambition transforms a man from a powerful entity to a sad microcosm. Amidst all the violence and chaos, readers are left with the most spine-chilling questions of all: How far would you go to save your family?
