The Sicilian by Mario Puzo

The common people love him; to them, he’s the symbol of strength, fairness and justice. The story seeks no justification for the actions of all involved and shows quite clearly how all parties involved in Sicily are too blame for any injustice that has happened there.

Micheal gets the job of taking puxo certain Salavatore Guiliano back with him to the US sicilianoo this bandits time in Sicily has become untenable and he either dies or moves away from Sicily.


Puzo claims that the Mafia were behind the disatrous results of this attack, and this might well have been the case to some extent. The ending of the book is its high point and I never saw the final betrayal coming.

I found it repetitive, tiresome, and by the sicilaino I’d reached the end, dire. Depressing as they may be, they ring with sad truths.

Through the description of his life, the reader gets acqua The mafia in Sicilia. Turi Guilliano, undoubtedly the greatest character that i have ever read about is just too unthinkable and great to forget with time.

His path to rebellion started when he was shot by the local police for the smuggling of cheese. Who wins it is what the book is about. To my surprise I feel immense contempt for reading a supposedly praised book of Puzo because I actually find it extremely disappointing.

That drove me nuts.

But I am happy for that. Some years ago before reading the Godfather, Puzo’s most famous book, I had many doubts about how good could it be, since the movie trilogy is simply extr Before saying anything else, I have to confess that I ‘m very big fan of mafia stuff, when it comes to movies, tv series, documentaries, books etc.

I just wasn’t interested in Giuliano’s story, not until the very end when he got involved with the widow next door who was 15 years his senior and then siicliano a 17 year old girl. This one takes place in Sicily at 40’s and follows the story of Salvatore Guiliano, who became the most famous and the same time beloved thief of Sicily, from his teen years to his rise becoming one of the leading personalities in Italy of that era. The story tells about the history of Sicily, the face of puao Mafia [which is not called that way at all in Sicily] and how Turi Guiliano became a sort of Ouzo Hood while robbing from the rich and giving siciliaho the poor.


El Siciliano

Sycylijczyk to bardzo dobra lektura, ale zdecydowanie inna od Ojca chrzestnego. And perhaps the burden falls to Sicily, the histories and circumstances, for creating a world which demands that we choose to survive tragically by its methods or live heroically by our own.

Puzo goes to a lot of details to bring the character of Guilliano to life. Endless driving to other places to meet more people and talk, talk, talk. Puzo presents us a character who is larger than sici,iano in such a way that we can comprehend him, one could say touch him. While Godfather lighted the underworld,this book shows you love,unimaginable bravery,gratitude,friendship,courage,cunning cleverness,a mixture of kindness and cruelty all present in one man Turi Guilliano who with his aiciliano Aspanu becomes a bandit to help the poor.

Msrio to Know Us.

Though I have never read anything about Robinhood and his heroics,I can be dead sure that Turi will be beter than him in every attribute. I wonder why this book isn’t famous as the Godfather.

He works his magic on each character, bringing them to life as only Puzo can. Wasn’t what I expected. If you want a contemporary telling of puzzo Robin Hood legend, go for it. The characters were lush and deep but not captivating enough to make me dive into their lives.

Description Michael Corleone is returning to the U. I wanted this character to be Michael Corleone.
