Straight from the horses mouth...

This is an awesome audio book, period. Rarely do you get a chance to hear this kind of stuff from someone who was actually 'in' the mafia... You will hear some things that are not in the movie. One final point about this is that Joe Pistone (author and narrator), is easy to listen to. Johnny Depp came scarily close to imitating his voice in the film, its easy to imagine its actually him narrating this at times. You will not be disappointed!

Not as good as it could have been

What did you like best about Donnie Brasco? What did you like least?

I love the Donnie Brasco movie and I've been wanting to read this memoir for quite some time. I wish he had hired a writer to help him with this memoir because this story has so much potential to be incredible. But it's just a memoir from a guy who isn't a writer in any way trying to communicate this incredible thing that happened. And then they let him narrate it. He's not a performer. It takes a lot of talent to perform audio books. It's not just something you do, much like writing a book takes skill.

But I will say this, I Really appreciated and enjoyed the real life audio clips between the characters in the story.
