Stuck in a job he doesn't want - but can't afford to lose - as nominal Head of the Communications Department at Fenland University, Wilt is still subject to the whims of The Powers That Be, both in and outside of work. The demands of his snobbish wife Eva, and the stupendous school fees of his despicable quadruplet daughters, cause him the biggest headaches When Eva signs him up for a summer job, teaching the gun-toting idiot son of a lusty local aristocrat, Wilt is not amused. But, as circumstances unravel and the summer goes on, Wilt sees that the situation could be put to his financial advantage, as well as giving Eva some headaches of her own. With Tom Sharpe's famous dark humour in full evidence, and an explosive plot which takes its readers to places they never realised they wanted to visit, The Wilt Inheritance is another instant classic from the British master of farce.
The 'jokes' are childish whilst the author's forays into the 'edgy' topics of sex or delinquancy are clumsy and embarrassing. Upon discovering Tom Sharpe's age, this is perhaps expected of an octogenarian writing for a contemporary audience. But for the sake of th Maybe I would appreciate this book more had I read some of the series' previous entries first. But for the sake of the readership and the author's own credibility, I would sincerely advise the publishers to put him out to pasture now, or at very least vet the books for the irritating overuse of certain phrases.
Perhaps the only credible merit I could give the book would be the truly bizarre characters and the strength of their convictions that Sharpe manages to give them. Jun 02, Georg rated it did not like it Shelves: Look at the staff of his story: Wilt, a sentimental cynic who — naturally — hates his wife, Eva, a pain in the ass. Four teenagers who escaped from an Enyd-Blyton story, and a lunatic boy who shoots at everything and everyone he can aim at. Maybe in the times of P.
Wodehouse or Buster Keaton. As a novel published in it looks like a Prussian Castle rebuilt in Berlin in the year Not funny. Jul 26, Tenzin rated it did not like it. Sharpe and his explosive plot takes you to visit places you never knew you wanted to visit, but can this hero survive against the bottomless vulgarity and hysteria of our cartoonish times? The protagonist Henry Wilt has had experiences in life which have left him with a rather cynical outlook, augmented further by the antics of his wicked quadruplets and overbearing, sexually repulsive wife, Eva.
We encounter larger than life characters like nymphomaniac, alcoholic Lady Clarrisa and her lunatic Sharpe and his explosive plot takes you to visit places you never knew you wanted to visit, but can this hero survive against the bottomless vulgarity and hysteria of our cartoonish times?
We encounter larger than life characters like nymphomaniac, alcoholic Lady Clarrisa and her lunatic son whom Wilt is to tutor in preparation for Porterhouse, Cambridge. We soon realise the futility of the summer as the son is unlikely to even catch the right train to Cambridge, let alone gain admission, he is a dim-wit, a dim-wit with a passion to shoot at just about anything. But the novel isn't funny, it pales in comparison to other Sharpe works which literally make you weep amidst peals of laughter.

The playing on the idea of the stereotypical prim English culture which hides a tumultuous sea of deceit and sexual anarchy is not outrageous anymore. The scenarios are just too obvious, the jokes rubbish and the farcical bits are artless, feeble and far too desperate to elicit laughter. All I witnessed was a series of events that successfully won in chipping Wilt's spirit.
In defense, it is still very Wilt-ish, if you can bring yourself to laugh at slap-stick comedy then you are guaranteed rattling good company, but a forgettable one at that. I suppose it is unfair to judge the novel by the standards of Porterhouse Blues, but it is almost sad in how much it lacks evidence of the original dark humour.
Nov 14, Bill Lawrence rated it did not like it. Not so. It's difficult to believe that it would have been published without the series to support it. It is a very weak story. There are few if any comic moments. I do remember a slight exhalation of breath that may have been a laugh. The characters barely count as stereotypes they are so thinly drawn.
Beyond being given names, there is little to describe them apart from some ludicrous adjectives. In fact, it is really badly written, so much so that it almost comes across as a parody of bad writing. And maybe it is.
Maybe the joke is on us. View 1 comment. A riotous, fun-filled romp lacking only in general riotousness and fun-fillery, although there is the occasional romp mentioned.

After struggling my way through this book over several weeks, I finally finished it and was left feeling profoundly underwhelmed and thinking 'Well that was certainly a sequence of words printed on paper'.
I will certainly refrain from reading any further 'Wilt' books in future. It's when Riotous Assembly was suggested to me in that my reading really took off.
I read Sharpe's books in Dutch first, the switched to English. And I read them all with great pleasure, stories of unimaginable mayhem. Although I still read any new story that comes out, and still enjoy them, I never catch myself laughing out loud anymore. Is it me? Is it the stories?
Difficult to say. Still a pleasant read though. Aug 14, Siddharth Mitra rated it liked it. The authors style of writing clearly resembles PG Wodehouse, but maybe not as funny. I'm sure a lot of people, including myself, love Wodehouse in as much as they did decades ago. Sharpe on the other feels like a cheap knockoff. The book is absurd at points, merely vulgar at most, and takes a sharp no pun turn towards some sort of light sadism at the end.
Read to complete the set! En una palabra: Dec 06, Alana Henderson rated it it was amazing. Tom Sharpe's Wilt series is always entertaining British satire at its best.
The Wilt Inheritance doesn't disappoint. Wilt's likeable personality leads him inadvertently into often frustrating and generally unintended adventures, spiked with a good dose of humour.
In the disguise of misfortune, he manages to question the behaviours of those in positions of power. Sharpe innocently weaves events around Wilt , so that they always get their 'come-uppance', though we're not always sure about the end Tom Sharpe's Wilt series is always entertaining British satire at its best. Sharpe innocently weaves events around Wilt , so that they always get their 'come-uppance', though we're not always sure about the end, until it happens.
Sharpe shows his astute analysis of people's behaviour and takes the reader along the various threads of the story, culminating with a dramatic ending. Wilt is still working at what is now Fenland University lecturing in computer studies, but not earning enough to keep his four quads daughters at the school his wife thinks they should attend.
All this plus a free holiday for his family in a cottage on the rich family's estate. Needless to say, in true Wilt fashion everything goes wrong including Wilt is still working at what is now Fenland University lecturing in computer studies, but not earning enough to keep his four quads daughters at the school his wife thinks they should attend.

Needless to say, in true Wilt fashion everything goes wrong including his wife asking the local vicar to bury a coffin which is found to contain no more than a log. Well you will need to read to find out! Erstwhile satirist Sharpe seems here merely to have given up on the world. Dec 30, Angel Serrano rated it liked it Shelves: Los gastos del colegio privado de sus cuatro hijas fuerzan a Wilt a aceptar un trabajo de verano. Dar clases privadas al heredero de una familia nobiliaria cuyo mayor objetivo es ser soldado para matar gente.
El retrato de la nobleza obsoleta y los problemas de la gente normal se meclan de forma hilarante. Wilt remains a consistent and likeable character but Eva is now simply a harridan and the quads are downright sociopathic; I actually found their actions quite distasteful. An easy read but even for a farce, it stretched credibility to breaking point.
Plus Myra Hindley jokes are really never okay. Jun 17, Bindu Vinod rated it it was amazing Shelves: The author is amazing with his style of writing. A serious situation which would interpret to take 4 pages would be covered by Tom in 10 lines and in the most laughable way possible. Thank you for a book which makes you smile. Glimpses of the old magic, but not up to the standard of the others in this series. Sep 19, Daniel rated it it was ok. Tom Sharpe in his prime was one of the funniest writers around.
Sadly this is not nearly as good as his earlier work. Still enjoyable but lacking the comic invention of previous Wilt books. It is a marvelous book which I read with pleasure. Mar 07, Poendree added it. Oct 09, Richard Barnes rated it liked it. In short, Tom Sharpe's last book is sadly nowhere near his best. However, it is always fun in a bleak, black and biting way to find out how Henry Wilt, raging fall-guy for the postmodern age, is getting on. I wouldn't recommend this to readers who are unfamiliar with Wilt start with "Wilt" - definitely one of Sharpe's best - half the fun comes from seeing his increasingly psychotic quads growing up, but it helps to know where they come from before you get to this book.
The plot is weak, Wilt g In short, Tom Sharpe's last book is sadly nowhere near his best. The plot is weak, Wilt goes to a house load of deranged pseudo-aristocrats to attempt to tutor their deranged son, and chaos ensues.
It kicks into gear towards the end when we see flashes of the Wilt we love butting heads with the usual thug-like police of Sharpe's novels - always out to pin a crime on someone, regardless of whether there is a crime happening.
