An analysis of the characters in the last don by mario puzo

Vito also had a daughter, Connie who went through the pain of the family business and she was not even involved in it. Finally, there is the adopted son Tom who Sunny found in the streets of New York homeless. He had four sons. While Michael was in Sicily, he fell in love and got married to a woman named Apolonia but their love was short lived because a hit was put out on Michael.

Also, while Michael was in Sicily, the bosses put a hit on Sunny.

The Last Don

The Clericuzio clan is After the wedding, Virgo Salatso, a herione dealer from Italy is looking for the Corleone family backing by money and protection from the law, as they have control over the local government. At the beginning of the book, we see Don Clericuzio who is at the height of his power made plan for his loved ones: A few weeks later the Corleone family moved to Las Vegas.

Okay, back to the story itself. On the way he had to ggo through a tollbooth where he was met by heavy machine gun fire and was killed. With Sunny dead and Vito tired and rapidly aging, he needed to pass the responsibility of the family over to Michael. The next son is Fredo and the youngest son is Mechael which was in the military at the start of the movie and later stepped up to be the head of the family business.

Vito wants no part of the heroine dealer and little does he know all of the other mob bosses are going along with Salatso. The quick to act older son is Santino, also known as Sunny. He asks her to never ask him about the family business again.

As light-hearted and delightful those Hollywood characters can be, all these lengthy Hollywood-plots still weights the whole story down!!!! As to the romance s However, in The Last Don we see a lot more about how the members of the third generation of a powerful crime family would turn up to be: Carlo beat yup Connie and Sunny and was sent to her aid.

After this, the family sent Michael to Sicily to hide out. XD I think the main reason why The Last Don fails to outperform The Godfather is that the sense of urgency in the story and my own emotional investment with the characters is both weaker this time. Vito promises Carlo a good future, but will not ever let him be a part of the family business.

Yet, the ending part really does make up for the shortcoming of this novel. In The Godfather, the Corleone Family is at great risk when we meet them: As a main character, Cross has better development and internal struggles than Dante--the latter is painted as a violent, unlikable jerk throughout the book.

Michael called a meeting of the five families to announce the Corleone was going to drop all of their operations in New York and go to Las Vegas, but before the y moved to Las Vegas, Michael had to settle all debts.

After everything died down, Michael was summoned back to America.Like Puzo's earlier novel, The Last Don is episodic with a large cast of characters. In addition to a main plot, which could only fill a novel perhaps 1/3rd the size, Puzo fleshes out the characters and situations by flashing back to earlier times in the characters.
