    One thought on “Wilt On High

    1. Peter on said:

      “Do go on,' he said. 'There's nothing I enjoy more than listening to a highly trained intelligence leapfrogging common sense and coming to the wrong conclusions. It gives me renewed faith in parliamentary democracy.”This book is the third of five humourous books about the hapless Henry Wilt. Henry Wilt is Head of Liberal Studies at Fenland Technical College, husband of Eva and father of four demonic girl quads. As well as his duties at the college he also teaches a serial criminal at a nearb [...]

      "Os dias só são normais quando nada corre mal."Terceiro livro da série do Wilt. O humor, tipicamente britânico, continua a criar vários momentos divertidos. Mas, no fundo, é mais do mesmo. Gostava que as personagens fossem devolvidas e houvesse uma evolução no tempo, mas apesar de o tempo passar, tudo se mantém relativamente na mesma. Eva podia ser menos previsível e as quatro gémeas seriam mais interessantes se fossem um pouco mais que um grupo de meninas absurdas, maníacas e irrita [...]

      Typically British. I wonder how the author came up with the "icing syringe and herbal Viagra" plot line I wish Eva's character was more developed-- I would have liked to see her as more than just a frigid housewife, and I wish the quads were more that just absurd, maniacal plot distractions. Oh well.

    4. Anayansi on said:

      Me reí muchísimo. Nada como un poco de humor negro inteligente mezclado con la mala suerte del pobre Wilt. Definitivamente de mis personajes literarios favoritos.

    5. JonSnow on said:

      4.5/5A wonderful motley of humor as usual. There were more laugh out loud moments in the previous book, but plenty enough in this one as well. It was nice to see old Flint rewarded for a change and thoroughly pleasing to see dumb Hodge demoted. And I must say, Wilts four hellspawn daughters are positively amusing with every scene they're presented in! Of the hilarity of vile filthy mouthed yet innocent children spouting off profanity and provocative inquiries and statement of explicit nature. Mu [...]

    6. Jeremy on said:

      Loved this one. The most outlandish plot imaginable with a laugh a minute at pompous academics. He used the term educated idiot, I had no idea it was in use in the early 1980s lol. Loved the quads too, or this that 4?

    7. Bindee on said:

      typical tom sharperidiculous situations. Loved it but not quite as good as Wilt.

    8. David on said:

      Porque el humor también se lee. Siguiente libro de las peripecias de Wilt, con más protagonismo para su mujer Eva y las cuatrillizas. Como siempre, humor crítico, esta vez con el ejército de por medio.

    9. Miguel Jiménez on said:

      Un libro que me costó mucho(no por el precio, si no por la lectura). No es el lenguaje, o la forma de narrar que utiliza lo que se me hizo complicado, más bien fue la historia. Siento que alargó demasiado tanto la situación de que Wilt había tenido que ver en algo en la muerte de la jovencita en el baño de la escuela como de que Wilt también estaba enrolado con la muerte del asesino McCullum. Siento que quería contar muchas cosas, metiendo muchos personajes y a su vez haciendo aburrido e [...]

      Don't pity Henry Wilt. Sure, over the course of 2 novels he's been suspected of murdering his wife (Wilt) and been taken hostage by terrorists (The Wilt Alternative), but he's managed to extricate himself from these predicaments by, well, just being Wilt. Which makes one wonder how he's going to get himself out of the situation he finds himself in Tom Sharpe’s Wilt On High. In this entry in the Wilt canon, he's accused of being a drug dealer (By the police), a communist (By a visiting school o [...]

    11. Manuel Antão on said:

      [image error]Blimey!Fast-paced absurdity multiplied to the nth power. Another winner from Tom Sharpe. The entire book is a rollercoaster ride through a bunch of well organised sub-plots and what makes it even better is that all of it makes sense in the end. Satire is the true essence of the novel.Along with Joseph Connolly, Tom Sharpe was one of the two best comic british writers. His characters do not shy away from vulgarity. They embrace vulgarity and there is also a fair "small" amount of swe [...]

    12. Andrew Fish on said:

      Wilt is in trouble again. This time, his wife has become convinced that he has a low sex drive, the police are convinced he is selling drugs, and when they bug his car to monitor his movements, he finds himself in trouble at the US base where he is teaching classes.Upping the stakes and complexity is an obvious thing to do when writing a sequel. In the case of Wilt, however, it weakens what made the original work so well. Whilst the boxes are all ticked, they are done so more in a faint pencil t [...]

    13. Usfromdk on said:

      Better than the second book but not as good as the first one in the series. I was closer to 5 stars than 3. People who intend to read this book should note that it's a *very* good idea to read Sharpe's Wilt books in the order they're written, and that this is really the only way to read them; a lot of stuff in this book will make a lot less sense, and be much less amusing, if you don't know the backstory.

    14. Rory McKay on said:

      Laugh out loud on the train funny.Dribble of wee funny.Aching jaw funny.Uncomfortable, disturbed, looking half-away from the page funny.Tom Sharpe is simply one of the funniest writers I have ever read, and I've read a lot of books.A master of the art of schadenfreude - the art of laughing at someone else's misfortune.So what more can I say?Highly recommended.

    15. Alberto G. on said:

      My own expectations for this book was bigger than others, this is the main reason to make predictable my critic.Wilt's personality hasn't developed correctly as last books. The lunatic and fanatic that makes mad anyone needs to wake up. While you're reading, you're waiting for Wilt's awaking but all circumstances goes normally. Straight book

    16. Mark Cain on said:

      Fun yarn from Tom Sharpe about the hapless, buffeted, and constantly on the wrong end of the misunderstanding Henry Wilt, dealing with his overbearing wife Eva and 4 foulmouthed daughters. The situations are more extreme than the first book, and is on a similar level to the first sequel, but its fun and grotesquely charming.

    17. Dennis Goos on said:

      Drugs, voyeurism, murderous criminals, the US Air Force and the usual scathing humour toward the status quo are tied together more tightly than some of the Wilt books. May be Sharpe's best written book as media but not the funniest.

    18. Thom Swennes on said:

      This was my first Tom Sharpe book but it won't be the last. It is highly readable and funny. It had me laughing out loud. It has the zaney inspiration of Joseph Heller's catch 22. Tom Sharpe could very well be the British Heller.

    19. Tony Mischkinis on said:

      Great bookTrue vintage Tom Sharpe showing what can happen when simple things go wrong. That could!d never happen, but it does, though not with the exaggerated results shown in this book. I thought I had forgotten how to belly laugh.

    20. Sarah on said:

      Funny, insane, sublimely ridiculous, although I found the American military part sometimes annoying, definitely over the top! Typical Sharpe, nonetheless.

    21. Andreea on said:

      If you ignore the fact that the logic of premises is bit forced (cannot be that all decision factors are so stupid and egocentric) then all go smooth and funny, indeed .

    22. Swanny on said:

      read this on a train, bus or anywhere public at your own risk! people will think you've gone nuts,.hing your head off.

    23. P.D.R. Lindsay on said:

      I think the Wilt trilogy is probably the best of Sharpe!

    24. Gerdav on said:

      It was my 'bag book' easy to pick up and read in short bursts - an amusing farce

    25. Jenny(hades2) (Chocolate Chunky Munkie) on said:

      Totally mad and hilarious from start to finish.
