    The Godfather

    Literary tip for the upcoming holiday weekend. While the movie version of the godfather is widely renowned as one of the greatest films ever made, many people have never read the book. The book is actually even better than the movie and i would suggest that all godfather fans get a copy and enjoy it. Fools Die is a fantastic mario puzo book about the casino business in vegas, along with the usual lessons regarding life. The Sicilian, also by puzo, which was a horrible movie, is a terrific book.

    ramming speed to all

    Thanks for the tip, GC. I'm actually catching up with some Ambrose books right now given the holiday but I'll definitely check those out.

    Re: The Godfather

    After I watched the "Godfather" when it first came out, I immediately went out and bought the book.The book was actually better than the movie IMO and the movie is a classic. The Sicilian (I never saw the movie -- who was in it?) is beautifully written -- I have read it three times over the years.

    Have any of you Clan Ram members ever happened across the Patrick O'Brian series of novels featuring Captain Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin?? Also classics are the series of books written by James Herriot -- compilations of true stories of his life as a country vet in the Yorkshire Dales of England. Herriot (James Wight was his real name) is truly a wordsmith and describes his daily life as a vet with clever wit and often self-deprecating humor.
