tiny print

Had to order another copy of this iconic book because the print was so small, I couldn't read it. I am not blind, nor particularly far sighted, I am not sure anyone could read it without a magnifying glass. Wish they had said something about small print in the description.

I am currently reading the other copy of it, and I love it. Read it many years ago, and, of course, saw the movies many times, but am still really enjoying the book. It is excellent.

Still great after all these years

I read this book when it was first published. It is a great read, and equal, if not better, to the movie. I gave it to my son for Christmas, who I'm sure will love it. Plan to re-read it after he's done.

Just Excellent.

This book is a masterpiece. The movies are good too, but they are not as good as the book.

The good father is one of the books I have read so many times I can't count them. I am writting this review because I bought a copy, as I did lose mine in a taxi, at a trip in Milan.

Movie was actually better

I don't believe I've ever made that statement before in my life, but I really think the movie was decidedly better than the novel. The writing level of this book was sub par in my opinion; great story, but weak writing.
