I read this while visiting my parents after my younger brother recommended it to me (we have very similar taste). What can I say except I finished the >700 pages in 24h. It is thrilling, the story keeps changing and developing, it engaged me to think about moral issues and entertained me all the way through.
This is an absolute classic for me and I recently picked it up again. The fictional story of brave 11-years old Marc fighting not only the Mafia but also the american government while trying to protect his mother and younger breaks my heart every time. My edition is quite tattered by now as I’ve personally read it at least 5 times and both my siblings also grabbed it at some point.
