Comments Mob Daughter: The Mafia, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, and Me!

  • Holly

    I bought this book for two reasons. One being that I read her father's book Underboss. The second being that I watch Mob Wives every single Sunday. I regret buying this book. Its horrible. Sentences are clipped. Thoughts are all over the place. At one point she goes from talking about her family being arrested to her nephew almost drowning. Like waitwhat? The first, and really only time, she mentioned fellow cast mate Renee Graziano was when she said "She throws her fathers name around all the t [...]


  • Andrea

    I really liked this story. I know some people said that the story jumped around a lot, but I really didn't see it.Yes, the beginning started off where she eventually ended her story, but that is not so much of a stretch that people should have had a hard time grasping the concept.Also, I think people need to realize that this is the story told from KAREN'S POINT OF VIEW. That doesn't mean that it is gospel, and I am not 100% positive that everything she claims is truthful, but its still her poin [...]

    Mob DaughterKaren GravanoClose your eyes and visualize yourself surrounded by four walls, no windows, cameras all around you and no access to the outside world. Keep your eyes closed, as your world is just a black as what you are seeing at this moment. Imagine your family at home wondering if you were alive, what was happening to you and when they might see you again. The world of mob boss Sammy Gravano was now exactly what I have described but ten times worse. No access to his family, one 15-mi [...]

    Well. It's certainly not Shakespeare, but I knew that going in. It's not the worst book ever written, and does have some interesting-ish insight on mob life, albeit on a second-grade reading level. The audiobook in particular, read by Gravano herself, is pretty awful. She stumbles over difficult words, and from the way she reads, it sounds like she hasn't finished a book herself for a looooong time.


  • Jeanice

    I passed by this book in the library and figured, why not read it? I honestly thought it was gonna suck, but I was pleasantly surprised. The book isn't about all the female drama that the show portrays, she talks only a little about the show. The book is about exactly what she says it is about, growing up with as a mob daughter and the impact that it had on her family. Well written, intriguing, and a hard to put down. Shout out to Karen!


  • Angela

    The book is poorly written, jumping from one subject to the next in the same paragraph. The only reason I read it was I watch Mob Wives every week and reality is my weakness. I do have to hand it to Karen, she's brave in showing her face and story of things that she is obviously not proud of. Could I have done the same? I don't know. I do want to read her father, Sammy the Bull's book to compare. I initially gave the book two stars but didn't think that was fair because the story is real and it [...]


  • Janet

    The punctuation could of been better yet I enjoyed the book. It focused on her love for her father her point of view as a child. You can feel through the text the love she has for him. You can understand why she is glorified by the power and respect he gained through being an underboss. Loved the book I felt it was real and from the heart.


  • Deenanicole

    I read this book in 2 days it was amazing and I recommend everyone to read it. Karen is a great person inside and out. I myself am very family oriented so reading this book brought back some good and bad memories. I would love to meet her and tell her how wonderful she is! She deserves all the credit in the world! Great book!! Love you Karen from one aesthetician to another!!


  • Elizabeth

    I didn't know what to expect with this book. But I can say I was disappointed in it. She repeated herself a lot.


  • Paul Pessolano

    “MobDaughter” by Karen Gravano with Lisa Pulitzer, published by Ft. Martin’s Press.Category – True CrimeKaren Gravano was living the “life” of “lifestyle”. This is another way of saying that her family was part of the “Mafia” or the “Cosa Nostra”.Karen’s father was Sammy the Bull Gravano. Sammy held several distinctions; he was one of the most feared hit men with at least nineteen murders to his name, and he became the highest ranking gangster to turn State’s evidence [...]


  • Paul

    Not at all as bad as I thought it might be.Not alot of talk about her dad as a cold blooded killer,just how he was as a dad and he seemed pretty nice to his children.He was a killer because that was the business he chose.She did have many advantages of being a mob daughter like her dad buying her a florist shop when she was 18 which immediately became the 'go-to" spot for mob funerals,weddings,christenings etc if you were in that life you went to her shop. I don't feel bad for anything she or an [...]


  • Penny

    I've always had an interest in the mob and have read a few books on that topic. It was refreshing to read a book about the mob from the daughter's point of view. You could tell by reading Karen's book how difficult it was growing up knowing there was something going on in your father's life but too afraid to ask questions. I also felt Karen's pain not only when her father got in trouble with the feds, but when he agreed to cooperate. She respected him and understood the rules of being in the mob [...]


  • Teri Smith

    I almost didn't finish this book. Another reviewer said it first: I hope I don't get whacked for this review.This is hands down the worst book I've ever read. The coauthor should be ashamed of what was put on the page. The main author has a middling high school education, and it shows. There is no cohesion to the story. The sentences are poorly written. There is liberal use of slang. It's the world the author lives in, but using words like "whacked" makes her look uneducated.The first third to h [...]


  • Rosey

    this was a very enlightening book into the life of what people of this life style go through. I feel like I learned a lot. I see values in the way she was raised and how she speaks in the book is very encouraging. I'm happy that she was able to let go of all the anger and try to move on positively with her life. and I'm a huge fan and will probably buy any product for skin she comes out with cause I think it will be amazing. I admire her on so many levels after reading her story and all that she [...]


  • Jessica

    Let's be honeste isn't Tolstoy. That being said, it is a very interesting, quick and easy read. You can definitely sense that this story is in her own wordse wasn't influenced by anyone in the "lifestyle" and wrote the truth. Although she had a ghostwriter you can't tell. I thought that she did a great job explaining her father's actions. You see a human side of Sammy Gravano and I personally ended up liking him at the end of the book. Definitely a must-read for all Mob Wives fans.


  • Michiko

    I chose to read this book as a fan of VH1's Mob Wives. Unfortunately, I was extremely disappointed with the writing, which made it extremely hard to continue to power through to the next chapter. The book gave very little detail on her "mob" life, which is already known, if you are watching the show. Honestly, if you want to know about Sammy the Bull, his bosses and hits, and the ecstasy ring in AZ, google it, because you will find more information there then in the book.


  • Julie O'Neal

    Mob Wives is my guilty pleasure. It's ridiculous and that's why I had to read this book. I definitely was not expecting a mind-blowing book and it wasn't. If you're a fan of the show, you'll probably enjoy reading this semi-biography of Karen Gravano growing up with her prominent mob father. Otherwise, the awkward writing and redundancy will probably frustrate you to the point of abandoning this book.


  • Marisa Gonzalez

    Karen Gravano tells her side of the story growing up as the daughter of Sammy "The Bull" Gravano. This book was OK but I thought her dad's book "Underboss" was a lot better and more interesting. If you want to read a really good book about growing up with a dad in the Mob then I highly recommend you read "Mafia Princess" by Antoinette Giancana. I believe the book is currently out of print but can usually be found in libraries.


  • Afj683

    I was skeptical about reading this book, especially after watching 2 seasons of Mob Wives. In the show I find that Karen tends to manipulate what people say just to start drama. After reading the prologue, I was sucked into the book. Karen's choices may not have been the best at times, but I give her credit for overcoming a lot of obstacles and making the best out of her situations. Overall the book was entertaining.


  • Corinna

    This wasn't a bad book at all. I love the show (about one of the only reality shows that I do enjoy) and liked hearing about how it was to grow up with a mob father. The whole subject fascinates me, and this book did too. I must admit though it isn't for someone with a soft stomach or someone who doesn't realize that these people are human like we are. You have to be willing to forget what your morals are while your reading the book or you won't make it through the first few chapters.


  • Kitty

    This was so boring that I couldn't finish it. I even skimmed the rest of it, just in case, but nope: BORING. Luckily, this is a book by the woman on Mob Wives who used the phrase "escape goat," so there's a good chance her ghostwriter did all the work, she can't even read this herself, and she won't put out a hit on me for bashing her glorified entry on her own father.


  • Jo

    I selected this book because I am addicted to the realizty show Mob Wives. It gabe a background on various cast members and satisfied my basic curiosity. However, the book is poorly wirtten. Numerous times I had to go back and re-read to follow the train of thought. Mid-paragraphs switch ideas. Characters appear without introduction. Mod Daughter had co-author. I expected better.


  • Lucy

    Completely underwhelming and boring. Revealed nothing, I don't even know why she was given a deal. The writing was terrible, the stories were repetitive, the book went nowhere. I found myself skipping through pages just to get to the end. Save your money, you can glean more info searching the internet or watching the show. Better yet, buy her fathers book, Underboss.


  • Linda

    HORRIBLE PERSON! HORRIBLE BOOK! NO CLASS, NO RESPECT, MOST OF ALL NO REMORSE!! This book is trash.This book is terrible


  • Buffy Moore

    This book captured so many things I love to read about - autobiographies, organized crime and how people think and act.Growing up in the 80s I remember the Gotti trials. I never really knew all the key players including Sammy the Bull Gravano. Reading the author's accounts as the daughter "In the Life" was fascinating. I really wished there were more chapters. She was also able to give her family's side of the story a voice.I "read" the audio version narrated by the author Karen Gravano. Which I [...]


  • Christa

    The first half or so was better than the ending. In the beginning, things went in order. You learned about the family history, how things came to be. Then all of the sudden John Gotti shows up. You get that her father was in the mob, but I wasn't really sure what he did, or even what he went to prison for.The reading was choppy, even though it was the author reading it. At the end she mentions the "Mob Wives" show, which is probably why I wanted to read the book in the first place. It did make m [...]


  • Sarah -

    The writing is passable but not spectacular, which is about what I expected. I checked this one out from the library, which is the way I recommend reading it. I watched a season or two of mob wives AGES ago and as of right now do not even know if it is still on the air or not because I am too lazy to look. The story is interesting but not necessarily Karen's perspective. I will definitely be reading her father's book when I get a chance.


  • Raymond Luis

    It's not the greatest book I've read. The writing follows almost a dream of consciousness pattern, and you can easily see where the two authors' voices split. That being said, the story is compelling. It's an interesting sight into the world of a mafia princess. And the last few chapters are emotional!Enjoyed it and thought it earned by 4/5 star rating


  • Tyra Renaud

    Been a fan the show mob wives since the first season. Finally got a chance to sit down and read this book. Karen Gravano pulls no punches & truly shows the world a view into life as Sammy the bull’s daughter as well as what coming out of his shadow meant for her. Loved this book!


  • Joan

    It was just ok.
