This just in: Godfather sequel is so-so

Elsewhere in the Times, Michiko Kakutani spends 1000 words on a conscientious and thoughtful review of why Mark Winegardner's Godfather sequel The Godfather Returns isn't very good. Surely that is the least-surprising news of the day.

Reading her take on it confirms my suspicions of the book without even laying eyes on it. Why the Times thought this worth the space, though, is a puzzler.
