    1 thought on “Old Country

    1. Old Country, Welsh writer Leonardo Donofrio’s 2016 novel takes the themes of The Godfather and Goodfellas in a different direction and has created a smooth, entertaining crime fiction.Set in America and Italy, Donofrio describes a situation where a famous but reclusive assassin refuses to carry out a hit and thus runs afoul of his erstwhile employers.Donofrio succeeds with his characterization and dialogue, two elements in a good fiction for which I always look. Eschewing stereotypical goombah [...]

    2. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to the author, Leonardo Donofrio, for providing me with a copy. Before embarking on the journey portrayed within this book's pages I knew only one thing about this book: it was similar to the Godfather. I might not have read the book yet but I was well aware of the story. I was intrigued and excited to begin something of which I had so little knowledge and no experience or association with. Old Country is a tale of Italian mob culture [...]

    3. Received a free copy of this book for my honest review. Noooooo, it's over! I tried to read as slowly as I could, but I've finally come to the end. Just brilliant. This is one of those books that, for various reasons, shouldn't have worked for me, but it just DID. I will start by saying that if you're looking for a mafia book that's all about killing, violence, backdoor deals and mob business this isn't the book for you. This is very much an ensemble piece and is a book to read slowly and savor, [...]

    4. I LOVED the movie "Goodfellas". If you're looking for a good book like "Goodfellas", then this ain't it. So many reviewers beautifully summed up the strengths and the flaws of the book, but I must say that what makes this book a gem is the reality aspect. Even made men have daily lives so I thought the simplicity of the love of making wine and honey were excellent. Normal life mixed with ultra-violence. This balance creates a delicious slow burn where you hate and love each character yet don't f [...]

    5. I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book. “Old Country” is a book I don’t think I would have discovered on my own so I am grateful to the author for sending me a free copy. “Old Country” follows Marco Rizzo, a very effective assassin, as he attempts to cut his ties to organised crime in order to pursue a quiet life in the Italian countryside. However, his American contact has other ideas and believes that Marco still owes him one last favour. Marco’s pay is [...]

    6. I borrowed this book from Prime Lender's Library based upon a group recommendation. It is not, fundamentally, a mafia crime novel although there are several scenes in which murders are committed ruthlessly. Most of the story is a tediously paced biography of a family whose lives are intertwined with the mafia both in Italy and the USA. Despite various attempts by the two main characters, Marco and Primo, to leave that life behind, they cannot escape its tentacles. In the final section of the b [...]

    7. I was offered this book to read and review by the author via . The book had a good start, drawing you in and leading you through the story. It also had a good ending, although about 3/4 of the way through you had a fair idea of how it would end. Even so, you felt you needed to continue reading, just in case you were wrong,mor there was a major twist. The biggest disappointment, however, was the middle section. It seemed to go on forever. There was so much descriptive writing, explaining, more de [...]

    8. In a tale very reminiscent of The Godfather we follow Marco Rizzo, The Winemaker. When he’s offered a job to whack a female reporter Marco says no, but then is given an ultimatum by Flavio the mob boss. This set up is one of the reasons I really liked the book, it had a clear goal, motivations, and obstacles faced by our protag. Not many indie novelists grasp the basic fiction structure, and their work suffers horribly from it, but here we’re treated to a well framed and thought out plot.One [...]

    9. As some of the previous reviews have picked up on this is a different take on the standard mafia novel, very much character driven, and focusing on two families living in Italy and America, who eventually collide in a final showdown.If you're looking for a mindless, thrills and spills, page turner, full of two dimensional characters, bland dialogue, and improbable plots twists, this may not be for youIf you're looking for something with a heart and soul, and complex, multifaceted characters, thi [...]

    10. A simple story, beautifully and intricately told, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested along the way. Full of authentic, flesh and bone characters, and snappy dialogue, the book really did capture the beauty and brutality (and rugged humour) of rural Southern Italy. Was far more 'Italian' than other mafia books I have read, and far more emotional. Detailed descriptions of Italian countryside, and meanderings on the joys of winemaking and beekeeping, may not be everyones ide [...]

    11. Old Country is written by Leonardo Donofrio. It is a different book and I am still not sure how I felt about it. It is the story of the demise of the men who surround Flavio. Flavio has taken over the New York Mafia and is running it with the help of his consiglieri, Robert. Flavio needs a woman reporter killed before she can ruin him via the newspaper. He has Robert contact the best, Marco the winemaker. However, Marco informs him that he will not do the job. He reminds Robert of Marco’s rule [...]
