I love the whole Wilt Series. He's such an unlucky guy, misfortune and misunderstandings just seem to follow him around.

The late Tom Sharpe has as always an acid wit, and Wilt's adventures are hilarious!
He will be greatly missed!

For all those men who are starting to think like Victor Meldrew but still have that rebellious side then this book is for you. Wilt is the hero without the muscles or the fantastic skills and abilities, he's the one beset with problems, goes through hell but wins through in the end. He doesn't set the world alight but he does give both hope and sheer entertainment to the readers. Well done - another small victory against all those prats who are determined to interfere with our lives- Tom Sharpe - you are the master! If you have read Tom Sharpe -you will not be disappointed, if this is the first time - enjoy and get the rest!

I enjoyed reading Sharpe's previous novel, The Gropes, but felt that the first half of it was all exposition and back story. The Wilt Inheritance was better, but this was probably helped by the fact that this one is based around characters we already know (if you've read the other Wilt novels - which I would recommend.) It's not brilliant - the earlier Wilt novels are better, but it is still an enjoyable read.

Poor proofreading has meant that on page 310 there is an opening speech mark for a piece of descriptive text, which was confusing to begin with.
