I post book reviews as often as possible but at least once a week every Wednesday! I hope they help you to find some new books that you'll love as much as I did!
My first thought when I started reading was how rich the descriptions were. They felt realistic and really gave a feel for the decade and the community.
The characters of Sal, Tony and Chris were well developed and they really added to the themes and values woven throughout the plot and the presentation of 1980s America.
For me, it took a little while longer to get into the 'main events' of the story than I would've liked. There was lots of background information which I felt could've been cut down a little. Once I got about half-way through the book, I became a lot more immersed and enjoyed the story very much. The pace picked up and although some parts were quite violent, it also had a great depth to it and some very interesting themes.
It's veering a little off of my usual genre, but I enjoyed it and would give it 4 out of 5 for the genre that it was. I'd recommend it for fans of Mafia family stories and especially if you like reading about the bonds and the lifestyle of these families.
