3.0 out of 5 stars bit of a return to form, 6 Jun 2011
This review is from: The Wilt Inheritance: (Wilt Series 5) (Paperback)
This is a bit of a return to form after the very disappointing "Gropes", but it is a very short book, Just over 300 pages and in quite large type-face. It is amazing that Tom Sharpe, at the age of 83 is still able to produce the goods, although The Wilt Inheritance, while pleasingly diverting, will not be remembered with the same affection as his earlier novels.

Here we have the usual ingredients, Over-bearing women, outrageous characters and utter mayhem. Wilt is forced by his wife to take a summer job teaching a half-wit History, while his wife and their four vile daughters get a free holiday on the grounds of the estate where Wilt will be teaching. Cue a magistrate with an obsession for fat women, a psychotic teenager and a nymphomaniac coming up against the members of the Wilt family.

So not bad, but not one of the classic Sharpe novels.
