Harold Robbins (May 21, 1916 – October 14, 1997) was an American author of popular novels. Robbins was born Harold Rubin in New York City, the son of Frances "Fannie" Smith and Charles Rubin. His parents were well-educated Jewish emigrants from the Russian Empire, his father from Odessa and his mother from Neshwies, south of Minsk.

This book was an abomination. He had died and what they tried to do was make a book of unfinished works Harold had lying around. They did no justice to Harold. Too bad this had to happen.

Harold Robbins Book Club: 477 участников. Hello all book lovers, I have read most of HR books and I enjoyed them very much. Like all books I have my favourites and they are not a surprise as most of you are familiar with them. To me The Carpetbaggers and the best of all The Betsy just top the bill. They are all time greats. There are many reasons and I have mine. They are fantastic books. They take you on a motionless flight to heavenly clouds from where you can make judgments and see the world with a different perspective.

Born in 1916 in New York City, Harold Robbins was a millionaire by the time he was twenty. He lost his fortune by speculating on the price of sugar before the outbreak of World War II. Later, his fabulously successful career as a novelist, with many of his books turned into movies, would once again make him incredibly wealthy.

I thought this book was well-written and stronger than the prequel, Predator. Robbins gave a lot of life to the two POV characters, Jerry and Len...especially Len. The women were of course subjected to the same sexualized tropes but at least they were more compelling and portrayed to be a lot more smarter than is usual for Robbins. Also, I love how Robbins writes his books on different subjects from politics to business to entertainment, all are written with the view of someone who has done an awful lot of research. This may not be a literary piece, none of his works are, but I daresay you'd be hard pressed to find many novels with a better story. This one surely ranks among his best for me so far, alongside The Adventurers and The Betsy (and The Stallion).

This book seemed interesting, so I gave it a chance. There are 2 stories told by father and son, which didnt bother me. What did is the constand and blatant cheating of these two men. They both have a woman in their lives, but still cheat and the women are clueless, well one isnt and I wss hoping this one would destroy her husband, she didnt. When the char ters became involved with Chinese and Texans, I was lost. I actually skipped pages just to see if there would be a satifying ending, it did not. The last 3 pages got me and to read the last paragraph, I was dumb founded. Vicky needed more depth, to destroy her cheating husband. I give 3☆due to the fact that the beginning had me peaked, and the middle too much to take and the ending that made no sense to me. Being a powerful woman, Vicky could of stopped the affair asap and riund the empire.If you dont mind lack of morals and commitment, mindless sex and a story that seems all over, this one is for you

This one is more like Harold the Storyteller. Some of his more recent work has been as much about sex as it has been about character development-and some rather debased sex at that. Which was a shame-over his long career, Harold Robbins has created some of the most interesting and sympathetic characters I have ever encountered in fiction. Film industry pioneers. Union leaders. South American revolutionaries. Young prizefighters. Auto industry pioneers. You name it. This one is the sequel to "The Predators", the story of a lingerie industry magnate (??) and it's two novels in one-a father and his son. It switches back and forth between the two men in the way Evan Hunter's "Sons" did with three generations of American fighting men. There's one small flaw in this book which is more amusing than off-putting-in the early stages of father Jerry Cooper's setting up the undie company, he has to deal with some mob types, and I'm afraid Harold Robbins is no Mario Puzo there. You get a family with the name Boiardo and of course the head of the family is called "Chef". They have a cousin named Napolitano and everybody calls him "Ice Cream". Otherwise, this is a pretty decent book. Part of Cooper & Son's business dealings involve a subsidiary in Hong Kong around the time of the "Handover" to China (coincidently, I just finished a Stephen Coonts book set there at that time). Being that clothing is involved, the issue of sweat shop labor comes up. This is hardly a landmark book for Robbins, but it's more consistent with why I was one of his steady readers for decades. What a relief-I thought he was totally losing it. At least he goes out with something readable. Gonna miss ya, old timer.

Before I picked up this book I knew that it was written by a ghost writer, posthumously. But since it was a "sequel" I wanted to get it anyway. What a waste of time! It is obvious that Harold Robbins had jotted down some notes and ideas and someone with no talent whatsoever had tried to make it into a novel. It is fairly clear to distinguish some of the passages that are Robbins' and then there are those that he would be ashamed to even look at. There is actually a part where the same sentence is repeated, with two words changed, on the next page. The intensity of characters, the eroticism, the storytelling that are so evident in most of Robbins' work is nowhere to be found in The Secret.
I was extremely disappointed in this book. I kept waiting for something to happen besides "scanties", than technology came into play, but the storyline was so boring and nothing worth reading about happened.
