Reviews - What do customers think about Blood Covenant (Repack)?

Great story  Dec 20, 2005
First off, let me say that a lot of these previous reviewers are missing the point of his story. Blood Covenant is not just about his days as a mobster, but about what how and why he quit the mob in the first place. To explain his reasoning he had to give a detailed look into his background. And he does an excellent job at that. I did some digging and what Franzese says in his book is true according to what was made public. I've seen both Goodfellas and Godfather and Franzese's story puts both those movies to shame because his story is the real deal. If anything, the movies were trying to portray the mafia life; it is not the other way around for those who think that Franzese is a liar.
As for the second part of his book, it does not surprise me that so many people do not understand and accept his explanation of how he came to know Christ and the role God played in his life. By telling you how he came to completely trust in God, Franzese does a good job of creating the message that God forgives EVERYTHING that you do that is not pleasing to him. Because many people do not accept the simple concept of God's grace, so many find this book to be a blow off towards the end. It is the exact opposite. Franzese's book explains God's grace and what it did for him in ways that most pastors and other religious leaders cannot explain. That does not make him a fanatic; it means he is telling the truth...a truth many do not understand and therefore refuse to accept.
Here is my message: if you are looking for an ending that tells how he paid everyone back or how he fell back into the life, then this book is not for you. However, if you are someone who wants to see a true example of God's grace and the way he can use one person to change someone's life while getting the bonus of knowing the insides of the mafia life, I highly recommend this book to you.
ripp off  Dec 8, 2005
I think this book is a compleet ripp off.
Michael Franzese is trying to sell his new book,but is realy selling his first book and added a few pages.
I think the guy is a compleet fake.
OK  Mar 10, 2004
For those who like books about the mob this is a reasonably good book. Be prepared though, Franzese is VERY determined to convince you that you should become a religous fanatic like him, and that because he is a true believer today, all his past sins are now forgiven. It is understandable why he would have that view on things, but depeding on your belief system, it becomes a bit of a drag in the end.
However, he is a great story teller and the book is easily read.
Goodfellas in writing  Mar 7, 2004
If you are not interested in snoring through 404 pages of garbage, add Goodfellas to your Netflix rental que. I mean this guy must have seen that movie ten thousand times, because his story goes line by line and phrase by phrase from that box office thriller and he still proclaims he had nothing to do with the death of numerous people close to him. I think he talks about religion far too much considering that he robbed people and did several stints in Federal prisons across the country. I don't buy much of his nonsense. I tell it how it is and that is the truth.
a real cop out  Feb 15, 2004
A lot of people are not going to like this review!

After having read Franzese's first book, "Quitting the Mob", I found this one to be full of the same holes as the first one, only more so.

For example: Franzese, by his own admission, stole hundreds of millions of dollars. What happened to it? How come the mob never came after him after he testified in front of the grand jury? What did he do to break parole and get sent back to prison?

The real problem I have, though, is this: If Michael is really sincere about his faith and repentence, then how does he deal with his admissions on pages 400-401? MF admits that he infiltrated casinos, defrauded several major companies, stole hundreds of millions in his daisy chain scheme, etc, etc. If he is really sincere, why doesn't he pay this back????? (or, at least attempt to)

In addition, MF intimates that he was involved in several murders, as well as numerous beatings. Is he making restitution? Don't make me laugh.

I'm really not very interested in some career criminal telling me the uniqueness of the bible. I can't help thinking that this entire conversion is just another scam by Franzese.
