    About "Mario Puzo"

      • Mario Puzo

        Puzo was born in a poor family of Neapolitan immigrants living in the Hell s Kitchen neighborhood of New York Many of his books draw heavily on this heritage After graduating from the City College of New York, he joined the United States Army Air Forces in World War II Due to his poor eyesight, the military did not let him undertake combat duties but made him a public relations officer stationed in Germany In 1950, his first short story, The Last Christmas, was published in American Vanguard After the war, he wrote his first book, The Dark Arena, which was published in 1955.At periods in the 1950s and early 1960s, Puzo worked as a writer editor for publisher Martin Goodman s Magazine Management Company Puzo, along with other writers like Bruce Jay Friedman, worked for the company line of men s magazines, pulp titles like Male, True Action, and Swank Under the pseudonym Mario Cleri, Puzo wrote World War II adventure features for True Action.Puzo s most famous work, The Godfather, was first published in 1969 after he had heard anecdotes about Mafia organizations during his time in pulp journalism He later said in an interview with Larry King that his principal motivation was to make money He had already, after all, written two books that had received great reviews, yet had not amounted to much As a government clerk with five children, he was looking to write something that would appeal to the masses With a number one bestseller for months on the New York Times Best Seller List, Mario Puzo had found his target audience The book was later developed into the film The Godfather, directed by Francis Ford Coppola The movie received 11 Academy Award nominations, winning three, including an Oscar for Puzo for Best Adapted Screenplay Coppola and Puzo collaborated then to work on sequels to the original film, The Godfather Part II and The Godfather Part III.Puzo wrote the first draft of the script for the 1974 disaster film Earthquake, which he was unable to continue working on due to his commitment to The Godfather Part II Puzo also co wrote Richard Donner s Superman and the original draft for Superman II He also collaborated on the stories for the 1982 film A Time to Die and the 1984 Francis Ford Coppola film The Cotton Club.Puzo never saw the publication of his penultimate book, Omert , but the manuscript was finished before his death, as was the manuscript for The Family However, in a review originally published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Jules Siegel, who had worked closely with Puzo at Magazine Management Company, speculated that Omert may have been completed by some talentless hack Siegel also acknowledges the temptation to rationalize avoiding what is probably the correct analysis that Puzo wrote it and it is terrible Puzo died of heart failure on July 2, 1999 at his home in Bay Shore, Long Island, New York His family now lives in East Islip, New York.

    1. Reading annually since 2006, I have yet to read a more original work which is this innovative. This has been out since 1978 and still waiting for another book to move me like Fools Die did. I've never liked a book where I loved the author more than the book I have been reading. I love Fools Die and because of it I love Puzo even more. I understood him with this work. And admired him for it. Still do. What makes Fools Die stand out among all the contemporary work, and what I truly like about this [...]


    2. أنت بتنتظر الكثير من مبدع (العرّاب ) , لما بتقرأ رواية تحمل اسمه بتعلى بسقف طموحاتك من المتعة المُنتظرة , وللحق : العمل كان عند حسن الظن به.فى افتتاحية الرواية يقول الكاتب :(تذكر أنني أستاذ في السحر , يمكنني أن أسوق هؤلاء البشر جميعًا أحياء . أستطيع أن أريك ما الذي يفكرون فيه حقا و [...]


    3. This was a very interesting and entertaining read! A mid-life crises thrusts the narrator into a world of vice and sin, where he spends many years skirting the edge of and gazing into the abyss that is this world. He watches his new friends and acquaintances fall victim to this world, and in the end finds a new appreciation for life and the importance of contentment. "Virtue is its own reward, and fools are they who die"."Only fools die". This book is by no means a suspense thriller, but rather, [...]


    4. This is a big, sloppy, at times poorly edited book. But, it was also ambitious, energetic, poetic and at times genius. Puzo swung for the fences with this book and 'tho the heavens may fall' he did whatever he wanted to. The storyline is almost nonexistent. Instead you follow Merlyn, the protagonist, as he lives his life as a sometimes gambler, government clerk, husband and father, successful writer, Hollywood hack, and loyal friend to some old Vegas buddies. I love these kinds of books. Books w [...]


    5. I'm having a hard time deciding how to rate this book. I truly enjoyed the first half of it, I was hooked from the very first Chapter and once again blown away by Puzo's masterful writing. Some scenes felt like they were coming right out of a movie (the gambling ones in particular) and I quickly became attached to the characters, with their believable background stories, their flaws and their motivations. But then, this all turned into a big mess and a big waste when it became apparent the book [...]


    6. This is Puzo's finest hour.except no one really gets it. This book is about real people and fate and magic. The story goes in several directions but manages to come back home in a solid fashion. Everyone should give it a read, I've read it several times.


    7. Един Пузо, съвсем различен от онзи, когото срещнах в „Кръстника”. „Умират глупаците” за мен е трудът на живота му. Някаква определена сюжетна нишка, за която да се хванеш, липсва. Книгата е особена. Много повече е израз на философията на Пузо, отколкото просто роман. Хаотич [...]


    8. كتاب جعلني أعيش المعني الحرفي لعبارة " طفح الكيل" في الصفحات الأولي من الكتاب , كتب المؤلف مقدمة , تجعلك تشعر و كأنك بصدد إحدي روائع دوستويفسكي , بل و ربما أروع , بل إن الكاتب يعدُك فيما يعدك بأنك ستزداد فهماً للحياة بعد هذا الكتاب و أشياء أخري كثيرة من هذا القبيل . في الحقيقة , هذ [...]


    9. I've tried listening to this twice. The introduction is awful - long & boring about what sort of story this would be. I think it was supposed to be funny, but it was just grating. I remembered it well enough that I skipped through it quickly.The story itself starts off by introducing 4 or 5 people in a Las Vegas casino. There was a lot of detail without much happening. I didn't like any of them nor did I care enough about them to even dislike them. The 'action' picked up to some gambling &am [...]


    10. Definitely took some time to get in to, but once I was in I was hooked.I read several reviews of this book claiming that it was a departure from Puzo's normal style, and that it was unlike his masterpeice, The Godfather. I totally disagree. The story here follows big and powerful people, skipping cross-country through a dizzying melee of sex, money, power, fame, love, hatred, blame, denial, loss, and luck - and remains the whole while to be an ultimately human experience. That's really what Puzo [...]


    11. This book is like a different Puzo. Reading the reviews at the beginning I got the feeling that the critics were not especially crazy about this one and after reading it I understood why. Puzo's The Godfather earned him the reputation of a writer that gives the reader a good thrill. No need to really enter the minds of the characters, their deeds speak for them. When you see a Puzo you expect a down and dirty tale of men's vices, violence and deeds done in the dark, especially those of the Mafia [...]


    12. Just an opinion butI feel Mario Puzo was resting on his laurels from The Godfather when he wrote this book. It rambles on for over 5oo pages without going anywhere different, exciting or important. I really wanted to like it but by the end I was choking my way through it!


    13. this book truly took me to another world and I was completely swept up into the world of gambling and literary critique occupied by the main character. another excellent piece by a fantastic author. highly recommend it


    14. A big disappointment from someone like Mario Puzo.Seems a bit stretched and is quite boring in between.He has written better books so don't waste your time on this.An Average read!


    15. I opened this book with a big urge to read it. After all it was the second Mario Puzo book i had picked up after being thoroughly engrossed and impressed with 'The Godfather'. This book surprised me as it wasn't a regular Puzo style writing.The book begins with the story of four people who became friends at a Las Vegas casino and plays all night, leading a wave of luck. Merlyn, who changed his name after making sure that he was the magician of King Arthur, Cully, the master of the 21 counts, Jor [...]


    16. This is a book from the author best known for The Godfather. In this one, the author tells a story about love. It isn't exactly a love story. It tells about different viewpoints of relationships and different kinds of relationships. This isn't my typical book but I was immediately engrossed by this novel. The author does a fantastic job of setting the mood. We open in Las Vegas where four strangers have become friends because of the gambling world. We don't see the glam side of Vegas but we get [...]


    17. Just one thing - do not believe to the reviewer that is inevitably quoted on the back-page of this book saying that this book is better than the Godfather. It clearly is not, as you expect other type of books when reading Puzo. Still worth the try.



    18. رواية جميلة جدا لماريو بوزو فليس غريبا على من كتب الاب الروحى أروع فيلم فى التاريخ أن يكتب رواية مثل هذه


    19. Mario Puzo is an author I have been hearing about for years, mostly due to the Godfather films. When I found a few of his books for sale, I decided to check them out. Fools Die was the first of his books that I read. Perhaps I went into it expecting a bit more blood and guts; a bit more action and violence. After all, what would a Godfather fan expect?The story revolved around a budding author and the events that occur in his life following a gambling streak in Las Vegas. Well, I was disappointe [...]


    20. Non so come, oggi mi è tornato in mente questo libro. L'ho letto due volte; la prima quando avevo circa 16 anni e mi era piaciuto molto, mi aveva colpito parecchio per motivi che allora non riuscivo ad individuare, ma aveva lasciato il segno. L'ho riletto qualche anno dopo, non ricordo di preciso quando, forse intorno ai 21, per cercare di svelare il mistero del mio amore verso questo libro. Ho potuto cogliere qualcosa di più, in maniera più matura, il capitolo di Janelle - che già la prima [...]


    21. Pocas palabras pueden hacerle justicia a este libro, solo queda recomendarlo. Contiene en sus casi 600 páginas ideas tan grandes que no cabrían en un simple prólogo. De hecho la edición que leí, ni siquiera tenía una.Me sentí tentado de leerlo por varias razones, entre ellas:1. Mario Puzo es el autor de la novela "El padrino"2. Nunca había leído nada de este autor.3. La portada de mi libro El inicio engancha, pero luego se tarda unas 100 páginas en tomar forma y asentarse, una vez lleg [...]


    22. This was the second book I read by Mario Puzo. I fell in love with this book and the charachters. I tried to envision this as a movie the whole way through, and it was a good one. It was a little slow at the start if I recall, but pace picks up rather quickly. I have read several times, not I can not find the darn thing. It would be a nice friend to sit with for a few days.I was working a summer job after high school when an older guy and I were talking about books and such on the the job. He su [...]


    23. i have watched The Godfather, never got a chance to read the novel though. before i started reading Fool's Die, i was unfamiliar with Puzo's writing style. it took me a while to get used to the style and to understand the characters. yeah the starting is slow and there are some ,you know, boring parts in between. but i enjoyed reading it most of the time. characters are nicely and some times beautifully sketched specially Osano's! yeah the ending could've been much better! looking forward to rea [...]


    24. Written by a man, about men, in the 1970s it's not current, and it's not feminine, at all! But that's okay, I enjoy reading different types of authors, it keeps me on my toes and opens me up to worlds I wouldn't otherwise be aware of! It was hard to get into at first, but I'm glad I stuck with it I can't think of anyone I'd recommend this book to, but interestingly enough, I learned my mother had read it years ago. That's probably why it ended up in my bookshelf, from hers.


    25. Was so glad I read this, Puzo's most personal novel. Where as all his books have been historical fictions on topics like: the Pope, Italian Immigrants, Italian Countryside, American Mafia, I felt this was a historical fiction on himself. The main character is a square writer who maneuvers into getting a book published and a film made and falls into the world of Hollywood. The writing is still so addicting though his female characters are always less believable than their male counterparts.


    26. Mario Puzo writes brilliantly although his prose is occasionally cliche-laden. This, however is one of my faves of his, up there with The Godfather. I enjoyed how he tied together two people who met randomly and are connected for tragic reasons. The back and forth between third person and first person from Merlyn's perspective was quite interesting. I would have liked to hear a bit more about Diane, shame she was such a bit character.


    27. Written very well. Lots of rich characters but I simply didn't like where they went. Plus, I never really liked any of the main players. It was hard to make a strong connection to any of them because I found them all to be a bit too slimy. Overall, a sad experience. Give it a try, though. You might find something I've completely missed.


    28. I honestly thought this was a masterpiece. Dated, certainly. Both in style and in content. But beyond that, it was gripping, enthralling, and fascinating. I couldn't put it down, despite not being a particular fan of the author or this genre.


    29. One of the first books that kick started my readingI wish to God I knew what the compelling factor was, but all and all I just cant explain why this book started my addictive reading habits!
