El padrino

Front Cover
Ediciones B, 2001 - Fiction - 480 pages
35 Reviews
More than thirty years ago, a classic was born. A searing evocation of the Mafia underworld, this novel introduced readers to the first family of American crime fiction, the Corleones, and the powerful legacy of tradition, blood, and honor that would be passed on from father to son. The novel stands out due to its exquisitely detailed characters who, despite leading unconventional lifestyles within a notorious crime family, experience the triumphs and failures of the human condition. With its themes of the seduction of power, the pitfalls of greed, and family allegiance, this is the definitive gangster novel.

El Padrino es el mejor libro que me he leido en mi vida.
Sin exagerar, te atrapa desde la primera página.
Es de esos libros que no quieres que terminen porque siempre se va poniendo cada vez mejor
. Si te gustó la película, el libro te va a transtornar porque aunque la historia es la misma, es mucho más completa.
