Program The Book WasThe book was but it made me angry because I read the other side of this story which was the memoir On The Run by his children Henry Hill glamorized his
life and he portrayed his children to be just fine with the ife they were thrust into Thisand he portrayed his children to be just fine with the ife they were thrust into This not true as he was a horrible father and even ost his youngest child to DCF for two years due to his and his wife s alcohol and drug addiction It also made me mad at the amount of money The Government Wasted To Protect A Rat Money Which Henry government wasted to protect a rat Money which Henry his wivesgirlfriends spent on drugs and scams If you read this one take it with a grain of salt as there were three children whose ives were greatly affected by his poor choices which he seems to brag about in this book This is a great case of real Shakespeare life crossing over to fiction Henry Hill is the inspiration for so many of the mafia related films and movies Goodfellas may be the most obvious as it was Hill s story that got turned into script but hearing other tales of hisife and early hijinks I realise now that these are just mirrored in certain episodes of The Sopranos pretty obvious to see where they got their inspiration from To have BWWM (Interracial Romance BWWM African American Multicultural Romance) lived aife Seers Stone (Hidden Alchemy like his if it wasn t so well documented then I probably wouldn t believe it Hearing stories such as how the Fab Four unknowingly helped Hill and his crew with a heist makes his story all the better A strong 4 from me and would recommend this to others the mafia has always interested me and to read stories of what really happened just made it that much greater henry hill has an amazing story and I m glad he got to tell it This was an entertaining memoir of former mobster Henry Hill Ray Liotta s character from the movie Goodfellas The book wasively and energetic I thought and Caveman Alien’s Riddle (Caveman Aliens, lots of gangster euphemismsike the Forgetta bout it True to the movie Henry and his two close associates Tommy DeSimone Joe Pesci s character and Jimmy Burke portrayed by Robert De Niro were some shady and vicious criminals Their personalities where heavily felt throughout the book The book retells his Teaching white South African literature in high school life mirrored in the movie to include his earlyife coming up as a gangster associate to the Lucchese crime family the drugs and guns and the famous Lufthansa heist More than the movie Henry Hill goes into the other crimes mob personalities fixing games robberies union extortion and other underworld activities the film A Wish Your Heart Makes let out The memoir goe.
