    One thought on “Young Al Capone: The Untold Story of Scarface in New York, 1899-1925”

    1. All around I liked this book. I had trouble following the names and who was who sometimes. Along with a nother reviewer I question the validity of conversation and gap fillers in jobs that went down. However, it was interesting to get a glimpse in to the crime life of early New York. I didn't think this was from Capone's first person viewpoint but more of a early New York crime syndicate beginnings.

    2. The best Capone book I have read! This book fills in the holes that most Capone books only briefly touch on. It contains chapters of Capone's early years whereas other books only contain sentences.

    3. I get what authors were trying to to here - create a "prequel" to what is widely known about gangster Al Capone, by making up a fictional account of the first 25 years of Capone's life by setting up reasons for Capone's sociopathic behavior later when he took over the Chicago mob. The problem is that the Balsamo's don't have the least sense of what "literary license" means. They just made up things which belie credibility. How are we to believe that a seasoned Mafia leader like Johnny Torrio qua [...]

    4. The subject matter is very interesting but this seems to me like the Hollywood version of Capone's life. I am sure the characters and events depicted are all accurate but I wonder where the authors pull all of the dialogue from that is spoken between the characters. It was obviously made up to make the story more interesting and read like a story rather than a biography. But, if you just accept it for what it is it is an enjoyable read.

    5. This was a solid read. If you are looking for background on the early days fo Capone in new York and Chicago this is a good summary. The book also does a decent job in setting the scene with suggestions around what the specific dialog would be between the real life characters. I would say this book is about a 3.5 overall but a 4 for any who is not a "Caponiac". Overall I would receommend.

    6. I enjoyed this story of young Capone growing up in Brooklyn. The well written story is easy to read and although I took the detailed descriptions with a grain of salt I have no reason to believe that the two mobster descendant's story was overall untrue.

    7. This book offers such vivid details of secretive encounters that it would be foolish to assume it is all fact. Still, the stories are fascinating--particularly the social history and how Capone wove himself into the mobster lifestyle so early in his life.

    8. I thought the book varied from some parts to be slow and uninteresting while others were very exciting and fast.

    9. Pretty fascinating book, but I question the validity of conversations quoted supposedly word for word that occurred some 90 years ago.

    10. Very interesting and a nice read. Some events seemed a little too stretched for non-fiction but nonetheless great.
