For Every Godfather Fan! Aug 21, 2008
This has to be the best gift anyone can give to a Godfather aficionado. It truly captures the spirit of the original Godfather film. The design and packaging are beautiful. I was very surprised at the details in the artwork and even the material the publisher used for the outside of the book... it may be leather (I can't tell) with gold stamping-- but it's a real treat to hold and read... and all the great moments are here, page after page, such as, "Make him and offer he can't refuse..." or "Leave the gun take the cannoli" -- This book makes a great gift for someone or yourself!
Great Coffee Table Book Jan 7, 2008
All the great quotes that we all remember. All done tastefully in a nice package. The art work and set up for the quotes are a great back drop on every page. Buy this book or "They will make you an offer you can't refuse"
Any Godfather aficionado will love this Dec 27, 2007
From the time he penned his 1969 novel, Mario Puzo's "The Godfather" became a runaway success--a best-selling book and one of the greatest films of all time. "The Godfather" lit up the silver screen with its cast of iconic characters and phrases that have crept into modern vernacular like Pete Clemenza's "Leave the gun. Take the cannolis."
So it's fitting, then, that Cider Mill Press has released The Godfather Classic Quotes, a leather-bound book filled with sayings and illustrations so vivid you can almost hear Marlon Brando's wheezy breath whooshing out of the pages.
The Godfather Classic Quotes includes a forward with the history of Mario Puzo's novel and how, with the help of Francis Ford Coppola, it translated to the big screen.
The book takes us on the rough-and-tumble journey through the torrid mafia underworld of the first Godfather movie, where there are two main allegiances--to family and to the crime family.
From Connie Corleone's wedding to the downfall of Don Vito Corleone to Michael Corleone's rise to power, the book relives the magic of Francis Ford Coppola's film, all milestones can be summed up by the family lawyer Tom Hagen: "This is business, not personal."
The book relives Corleone's rise to the top and his moral struggles along the way. The quotes taken from "The Godfather" movie are shrouded in violence, revenge and an insatiable love of power with reckless abandon for family.
This stunning, small book with photos and vivid graphics is a book any Godfather aficionado can't refuse.
Armchair Interviews agrees.
More then expected Dec 25, 2007
I ordered this product not fully knowing what to expect. What I got was more then expected! This product has a very nice front and back cover and the pages are lined in gold - think of Bibles that have gold on the page lining. It shows great classic quotes and backs most of them up with clips from the movie. My friend loves Godfather and absolutely loved this book when he unwrapped it! 5 stars well deserved!
A Book Offering You Can't Refuse! Oct 16, 2007
This book has been a long time coming. One of the absolute greatest movies of all time has been quoted in all it's glory. Each of the classic lines are here from "Fredo you're my older brother" to "Luca Brasi sleeps with the fishes!" Each page is elegantly illustrated and some quotes even reference their refering shot from the actual film. No true Godfather fan should be with out this classic addition to the original work.
