Too much sex, too much BJs, too much jerking off. A cheap sex story writer finds his way to Hollywood as a scriptwriter for the sensuous B movies right after WWII. There he experiences all sorts of sex, gets new cunts everyday. 'Let's fuck' is the most obvious and probably the only way to celebrate any occasion. And dope too. Sex and dope; that's nearly all about Hollywood. I am not sure whether Harold Robbins tried to portray the screwed up lives of Hollywood or just tried to increase his sales ...more

Really not his best. And I'm actually a fan (even though I put brown paper bag covers on them when I ride the train.)

Impressive . Great plot and an unbelievable ending. Very entertaining.

Can't be anything but a five stars. It's a Harold Robbins book; one of the greatest writers.
Recommend it to anyone that loves a hard to put down book.
Loved the plot, the characters and the unbelievable ending.

A great book, really inspiring. Love the way, how the author takes the reader from dark valleys to extravagant parties. I really admire, the starting and the ending and all the events that connect the start and the end. It really gives us the lesson on how we need to maneuver through as a young adult.

all in all "A PLEASURE TO READ"

Una novela ligera, muy entretenida. Con un toque de erotismo dentro del mundo del cine y con un final que puede sorprender.

One of the worst. I really liked some of his novels, but this is very bad.
