“The Inheritors” is Robbins’ final book in his trilogy about Hollywood and the American movie business. It started with “The Dream Merchants”, the continued with “The Carpetbaggers” and finishes with “The Inheritors”. I’ve read the last two, but not “The Dream Merchants”. Having read a number of Robbins books, and observed that a number of his later novels were clearly written by a ghost writer after he’d had a stroke, “The Inheritors” was clearly written by Robbins when he was healthy and at the top of his game. The characters are original and well-drawn, the plot strong and the book extremely readable. Despite his reputation for lurid sex, Robbins uses sex and depictions of sex only when it is appropriate to do so, and in a completely natural way – it is not gratuitous – which is why it works so well. I think what many readers forget, is just how enjoyable a Harold Robbins novel is. His characters are very human, with all of the dreams, failings and excesses that characterise real world individuals. You genuinely, laugh, cry and empathise with their journeys and are drawn into their world. “The Inheritors” may not be as big a book as “The Carpetbaggers”, but it is just as tightly written and as immensely enjoyable. It is the second time I have read the novel, having originally read it more than a decade ago, and it still holds up well to the test of time.

HAROLD Robbins is the king of fiction, I remember growing up reading many of his books and they are incomparable to King, Grisham, and other modern novelist. none of those guys can touch him!

My way to reward myself is to pick up a Harold Robbins book. Only He could tell a story bridging a lifetime and make it real. Wish there were still authors of his stature.
