Winegardner's novel is like an Italian feast--the food is plentiful and tasty, but it takes a long time to get to the main course. Still, Winegardner's writing will keep you listening. His twists and turns are expert, and he never does the obvious. Scott Brick's performance never gets tiresome, though it does take a while to get to the inevitable clash between Godfather Michael Corleone and Nick Geraci, the scheming Cleveland criminal who wants it all. Brick makes the hours slide on by. Listeners love his flourishes, like the way he ends his sentences with a little upturn. Yeah, Brick's got style. He makes a great book even better.
