    One thought on “L'uomo di Filadelfia”

    1. NO SPOILERS. This book is plot-driven more than story-driven, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. The author takes you through the many events that lead up to the life of the Philadelphian of the title, and then he takes you through the title character's life. There is very much a through-line, but it consists of "moments in the plot" versus a "complicated story". The reason it still absolutely rates five stars is that it is extraordinarily well-written. Richard Powell's ability to draw an a [...]

    2. this was a decent read. i have to admit, i skimmed all the stuff about tony in the war. i always enjoy reading about philadelphia, even if it's fiction.but dude. i do not get the obsession with "society" and the lengths people will go to to be a part of it. i suppose that there is still a "philadelphia way of life" and "society" that i don't know about. i don't fit in in those circles. apparently the movie is terrible.would i read this again? no. but i wouldn't disrecommend it to anyone either.

    3. A rather well-written and well-structured novel telling the inspiring story of how, through determination and wits, impoverished immigrants can in a few generations can produce a hot shot lawyer who joins high society, helps corporations dodge tax liabilities, and generally betrays his struggling ancestors' class interests (because that's what they would have wanted).

    4. Wish there was more about the older generations. Fun reading a book set in Philly. Overall good. Much better than the movie that was based on it.

    5. Oh man, what a delight this was to read. Now mind you, it only gets three start cause its structure was pretty conventional (sometimes boring and predictable) and it wasn't badly written per se, but it wasn't exactly literature.But what this was a love letter to Philadelphia and even though it was written 50 years ago, it captures the same crazy devotion many of us have today.Plot: a poor Irish lass escaping famine travels to the US, becomes a maid, seduces the young son of the fancy society peo [...]

    6. This is the first book of R. Powell that I have read, many years ago while still in college, and loved the story very much! It might have been written as an expose at the time, but for me, it's a story of the real struggles a boy went through, and the tough decisions he had to make as a man to beat the odds. An excellent read!

    7. I have read this book in Thai edition. First time i looked at the book, i hesitated to start reading because of its thickness. Finally, i took just only 3 days to finish feeling like i couldn't put it down. The story is good. I also fall in love with all characters in this book but the third part broke my heart.

    8. A classic that builds slowly through three generations of ancestry, before following the life of the main character from school to war to work, all within the confines of regimented Philadelphia society.

    9. I read the Readers Digest condensed version because it was available and I knew it wouldn't take me long to read it. I'm sure I would have liked the original version because I do like lawyer books. It was a good book. If I ever have time I would read the longer version.

    10. I read the Readers Digest Condensed version. Although the morals of the story are sometimes doubtful but it fabulously written, haven't enjoyed a story this much in a long time!

    11. La storia delle tre donne è bellissima.La stora del protagonista è piuttosto scontata, ma gradevole.Ricordo il film con Paul Newman abbastanza piacevole, ma nulla più.

    12. Same story - immigrants moving up in society - Philadelphia references only thing enjoyable about the book . . .

    13. I read this book in five days - I barely finish books in three months, let alone less than a week. I really enjoyed Powell's writing style and unique story-telling sense. This was quite enjoyable.

    14. I had to read it for my History of Philadelphia class. It was an enjoyable book but I would not have read it otherwise. I only found it enjoyable due to its Philadelphia references.
