had beat the heck out of him for hitting his sister before. Sonny on his way to get Carlo, he was blocked in to a security gate and shot at. Luca Brasi, one that was feared by all but only feared the Godfather, got erased by Tattalia and Solazzo. Luca Brasi was brought to a meeting with Tattalia and Solazzo to be offered a more generous dividend for his efforts. The two thought that such a brute force on their side would be a benefit to them. Luca Brasi’s life ended when they had strangled him to death. Don Vito Corleone, the Godfather of the Corleone family, reflected the same person in both forms of the story. “Don Vito Corleone was a man to whom everybody came for help, and never were they disappointed.”, verbatim from the book. Words of “I’ll give them an offer that

cannot refuse” were mearly a reference to a part of his personality. He made no empty promises, for he didn’t let anyone down. Don Corleone would take other people’s problems to heart. The things that he did for people were looked at as a favor. He didn’t look for pay out of a deal, at least not directly. Don Vito Corleone believed in the theory that you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours. Between the two ( book and the movie ) there was a happy medium in how the Godfather was shot by Solazzo and others not mentioned. Solazzo shot the Godfather because he did not want the family to do anything with dealing drugs. Solazzo being pro drugs, thought he could get his way if he killed the Don. Michael Corleone was the youngest son of Don Corleone and the only child who had

refused the Godfather’s direction with the business. The description of the physical appearance matched that of the book. The literature and the film were also both synomous with Michael Corleone in regards to his personality, how he killed Solazzo, how he killed Captain McCluskey, and how he became the Don. In summation of the book and the film, I feel that each has their entities. The vivid descriptions that Mario Puzo uses to effect the readers’ minds could not brought to life without Francis Ford Coppola’s film version. Reading the book was sincerely my first positive experience I have ever had with reading a book. Honestly, I have opened myself for the first time to reading books. That is why I am happy that the book and the novel are so closely related. I liked the

book more because I will always look back at it. To sum it all up the differences are certain specifics of the characters, setting, and dialog. The similarities consist of violence, Don Vito Corleone, and Michael Corleone.
