The Godfather Book
by Peter Cowie

British Making-Of book available from amazon.co.uk!



The only Godfather novel is the original The Godfather (1969). There were no separate novels for Parts II and III, although The Godfather does include the young Vito (De Niro) sequences. The rest of Part II and III were written only for the screenplay.

Similarly, there is no second novel for The Last Don. Although the mini-series on television had a Part II, The Last Don is only one novel. Mario Puzo did not write the screenplay for either miniseries, but did consult on the first installment.

The Return of SFWhile not the "official" sequel, THE RETURN OF SF became available October, 2003! I've read it, and must say it is absolutely fabulous - you will not be disappointed!

THE RETURN OF SF is the story of two brothers, Alejandro and Roberto. Join their wild journey from the streets of Cuba, to the excitement of Miami's nightlife. We follow them and their attempts to resist the drug world that doomed their father.

It is also about a major player coming back from the past. At first trying to live a normal life. But ultimately realizing that revenge is the only answer. If you like Scarface, you'll love THE RETURN OF SF!
