Not a sequel to Mario Puzo's bestseller, THE GODFATHER RETURNS is, rather, a rousing addition to that acclaimed novel, which broadens and deepens the characters and plot of the original story. Happily, it can stand alone as a complicated and compelling story that fascinates and repulses, but ultimately captures our imagination. New information about the familiar characters and their actions enlarges our appreciation for this classic morality tale. Joe Grifasi narrates brilliantly. Kudos also for an enlightening interview with author Winegardner and his editor, Jonathan Karp, who define the original story and this successor as "somewhere between pulp and Proust."
