'It is not quite proper to have printed The Carpetbaggers between the covers of a book. It should have been inscribed on the walls of a public lavatory.' (New York Times)
'With Harold's books, we'd play the guessing game. Who is that mogul, who is that actress, who is this sexually available babe?' (Jackie Collins)
Realistic, sexy, brutally honest - this notorious international bestseller was a publishing phenomenon, became a popular classic, and is now a Great Read.See all Product Description

I was NOT disappointed; I found the various stories and characters enthralling, vivid and compelling. My particular favourite is "Nevada Smith" and this was indeed spun-off as a separate film with Steve McQueen playing the eponymous role. I had remembered this story the most, from my original reading, but the surprises and linking of other characters in other aspects of the links I had forgotten made the book so enjoyable.
I would thoroughly recommend this book and it would make ideal holiday reading or to break up the time commuting.
I may have to try some other Harold Robbins books now...
