Tudo se resolve, porém; as gémeas atacam a base americana, libertam o pai e a escola de Wilt acaba mesmo por receber um chorudo apoio mecenático, supostamente anónimo....

    “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 nearby prison and teaches British Culture at an American airbase to help fund his daughters' fees at a fee-paying school. Things soon get out of hand when when a student at his college and the prisoner he is teaches both die of drug overdoses and he is suspected of drug dealing. Meanwhile his wife decides their sex life needs perking up adulterates his home brew with herbal stimulants. When Wilt's begins to behave oddly during one of his weekly teaching stints at the local US airbase, he's suspected of being a Russian spy.If you have read any of the other Wilt book don't expect anything particularly new or novel. Wilt is still a hapless character who somehow gets himself into some pretty embarrassing situations and whilst I must admit that at times I had tears of laughter running down my face there is no doubt that there is an over-reliance of what could best be described as bathroom humour where painful male genitalia afflictions abound. That said if you are just looking for a good laugh then you can do worse.

    "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 irritantes. Há incidentes que relembram o livro anterior, nomeadamente com o orgão sexual de Wilt e apesar de conhecermos um novo polícia (porque Wilt tem sempre problemas com a lei), o inspector Flint volta a fazer a sua aparição, mas muito menos surpreendente. As minhas expectativas eram elevadas, esperava algo diferente, talvez um despertar da passividade de Wilt, uma mudança. Acho que algo mais normal seria, neste caso, algo diferente."As pessoas podem mudar e mudam as suas vidas de um momento para o outro e de modo assaz fundamental."

    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.

    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.

    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. Much fun is had in reading this third Wilt novel. I recommend it, and the others, to anyone looking for a good chuckle, an easy read, and a twisted obscene scene.

    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?

    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.

    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 el libro.Reconozco que me reí como 3 o 4 ocasiones con este libro, lo que la verdad dice muy poco para un humorista. No digo que el escritor de humor te tenga a cada rato carcajeandote, pero esto de la risa 3 o 4 veces es lo que pasa con un escriotr normal, que no es humorista. No termino por entender del todo el humor de Tom Sharpe. Sí, su literatura es cruel, ácida, y la verdad no es para todo público, porque puede llegar a ofender en algunas cosas, por lo mismo de la forma de pensar del autor que es muy, por no decir que demasiado abierta.En fin, igual sigo sin entender porque la gente se aferra en compararlo con P.G. Wodehouse, cuando son dos tipos de humor completamente diferentes. Uno es 100% humor negro, cuando el otro siempre se percibe ese aire de alegría, jovial en sus escritos. Con humor blanco, en su estado más puro, muy inteligente, verdaderamente gracioso, del que ya pocos no se diga escritores humoristas hacen si no los comediantes como tal, y que en lo particular es muy de mi agrado.

    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 official) and a soviet spy (By a US Air Force Base Major), and, Wilt being Wilt, things go down from there. Have no fear though. He’s not alone. Eva’s back to aid her aggravating husband any way she can, along with the devilish quads (Emmeline, Penelope, Samantha & Josephine), and Mavis Mottram & Inspector Flint even lend a hand. Written in 1984, you feel the undertones of the reactionary Reagan/Thatcher era steering the action: if Russia is the "Evil Empire" then anyone suspected of being a spy has to be hauled off without delay and anyone suspected of being a drug dealer must be put under surveillance—warrants be damned. Still George Orwell did warn everybody. And in the end, Henry Wilt recognizes that we must keep up the good fight in order to enjoy a peaceful beer in the pub of our choice. Stirring thoughts, especially after the passage of the Patriot Act, the recent revelations about the NSA and the disinformation our own governments have released to bring about war.

    [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 swear words. There is a lot of sex, some of which quite unpleasant. The story gathers speed pretty quickly and proceeds at a frantic speed.What keeps me coming back to a Sharpe novel is just its unpretentiousness. So far I haven't been able to perceive a "deep thought" in any of his novels. Food for thought...? (Pun intended LOL )When I really need a good laugh out loud or a light-hearted bit of reading I always revert to a Wilt novel. Too bad we won't have any more Wilt stories...Sometimes life demands a funny but mindless novel."

    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 than bold strokes. Wilt himself becomes little more than a victim of events, pushed around by the plot and never able to regroup. Eva serves merely as a catalyst for Wilt's initial discomfiture and then, at the eleventh hour, his rescuer, and Flint seems only in the book to give him a sort of happy ending. Whilst the principal cast work largely because we know them of old, the rest of the characters spend too little time on the page for us to really relate to them. The book's redeeming feature is the structure of its plot, but there's a nagging feeling it would have done better with a little more time to breathe.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

  • Dennis Goos

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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 .
