• "Hugely effective fiction ... [Puzo] keeps his pack with readers to unfailingly deliver the goods"

    Literary Review
  • "Here is all the classic material of Mafia mythology ... spins a spell all its own"

    The Times
  • "Puzo's genius was to create a world so thick with personality and acknowledged rules of behaviour, along with its crime and violence, that reading his books becomes a seriously guilty pleasure"

    New York Post
