    Possibly the most cheerfully cruel thing I've encountered since the live organ donor sketch in Monty Python's Meaning of Life. The body count is immense, the characters vacillate between vile and moronic, and I cannot see much by way of redeeming social qualities in the work. It is also the funniest book I have ever read and, beneath the humor and bloodshed, it is incredibly well-written. Sharpe has a recognizable and finely honed style, and he is every bit as capable of turning out a beautiful [...]

    I've enjoyed several of Tom Sharpe's novels and will happily read the next one I come across, but for some reason this one struck me as crueler and less funny than the others. The attraction of his books is their black humor and outlandish comic situations; this one fell short of the standard in my estimation. It is the tale of an illegitimate son raised in isolation by a wealthy and eccentric grandfather in a castle on a Yorkshire moor. When the pair go on a doctor-ordered cruise they meet a fo [...]

    Geoff (G. Robbins) (merda constat variat altitudo)
    I've always loved Tom Sharpe's books and The Throwback is one of the best examples of his work.Lockhart Flawse (aka The Bastard) left orphaned at birth and illegitimate is raised by his grandfather and taught by private tutors who were specifically informed to avoid sex education. Both grandfather and grandson marry on a cruise ship to a mother and daughter. The mother, a scheming gold digger and the daughter who has been raised on romantic novels and for whom the term 'chaste' is an understatem [...]

    Very few books make me laugh out loud but this one did and it brought tears to my eyes.The best Tom Sharpe novel I have read.

    Lynn Neeves
    by far the funniest book i have ever read and can read again and again and still find it hilarious, particularly the main main character's antics to get rid of his tenants!

    Víctor Antón
    A mí es que me encanta el humor de Sharpe, tan subido de tono, tan sardónico y pasado de rosca. De no ser por la presencia de ese elemento este libro tendría mucho menos interés y quizás lo limite precisamente por eso, porque te debe gustar esa forma de hacer reír para que pases por alto los numerosos trucos de chistera (se saca el autor demasiados deus ex machina de la nada y esa manía acaba irritando) para resolver unas tramas tan enloquecidas que, por momentos, parecen escapar de las m [...]

    After a somewhat muted start, this book did not disappoint. If you want work-stopping, chest-hurting, tear-inducing laughter then this book delivers. Clever use of zeugma adds to the humour: ‘Dodd gave the window a wide berth and Mrs Flawse no dinner’. It’s one of the funniest books I’ve read!

    David Anderson
    This book served as my introduction the incredible British humour of Tom Sharpe. I was immediately hooked. I don't read too much fiction, but I have read just about every book of Sharpe's and have even re-read them, and will probaby re-read them again. This one combines the mystique of old money, the belligerence of the rebellious, broadsword- carrying highlander (in this case Northumbrian--but there's a bit of Scottish there too), a bit of history, and the awkwardness of a social misfit tryig t [...]

    one of my favourite books ever - it takes you on a hilarious journey that will make you wet your pants laughing so hard!

    This entire story was mad-capped mayhem with a touch of hilarity. I spent most of the book in disbelief that that had just happened and it had a quite a bit of slap-stick misunderstandings, but it struck me right and I just thought the whole thing very funny. I actually laughed out loud at several points. Probably one of the weirdest books I have read.

    Inge Powell
    Nearly wet myself on the tube train reading this, just soo funny

    Tim Schmidt
    This book left me feeling unfulfilled honestly.I disliked the main character (I think you're meant to, he is thoroughly unlikable.) and I must admit I was hoping for bad things to happen to him.

    Muriel E Cham
    On se demande parfois jusqu'où la farce va aller, et l'auteur continue, pour notre plus grand plaisir

    I'm not entirely positive, but this could have been the first Sharpe book I read and it left quite an impression. It's part of that British 'awkward' humour where one finds onself shouting 'No, why would you do that?' over and over again at the pages (whilst laughing of course!).Remains one of my absolute favourites. Worth a re-read!

    Caustic humor is a long and noble British tradition. What sets Tom Sharpe ahead of the pack is not the depth of his perversion (which is deep enough) or the sheer volume of comic mayhem that he can squeeze into two hundred pages, but that he can make you laugh out loud at the most appalling things, and keep you coming back for more. Part of his secret is that the stories are laced with Awful Truth. It’s hard to conceive that a writer who uses penis mutilation as a recurring motif and whose cha [...]

    While not as widely known as the Wilt books, the Porterhouse novels or his blistering South African satires, this pitch black comedy has a twisted appeal all of its own.Perhaps best described as 'Kind Hearts and Coronets turned up to eleven', The Throwback is the story of Lockhart Flawse, the illegitimate scion of an old Northumbrian family who seizes his birthright with both hands and disposes of anyone in his path in a number of wickedly funny ways.It's a very typical Tom Sharpe novel, full of [...]

    Manuel Antão
    Northumbrian Humour: "The Throwback" by Tom Sharpe Far, far away, in a distant magical land where only Sharpe’s books existed.  Manuel and Ana were entering the room. "Hay Ana" said ManuelAna was looking unhappy though."Bad news Manuel. We are broke""Hu? But after our last adventure we were rich""Yes, but after paying the taxes we are broke. In fact, we owe money now because taxes are high for rich people""Ow. Darn it. What will we do?" said Manuel to Ana."We need to make a lot of money to [...]

    Richard Barnes
    Cathartic is what I'd call this book. Who of us has not raged at inordinate amounts of tax ripped from our hands, or how it is legal for some to evade it but how most of must obey, or the blinding, soul-crushing meaningless of it all??? In The Throwback, we have a modern day hero in Lockhart Flawse who is prepared to not merely get angry, but to smash it all apart.There is a sick vein of black, black humour running through here - as always with Sharpe, depraved sexuality is exploited, enjoyed an [...]

    Bâtard de son état, le jeune Lockhart Flawse a reçu de son grand-père une étrange éducation. Capable de lire l'Ancien Testament en ourdou, de réciter ses tables en latin, il est, à dix-huit ans, totalement ignorant des choses du sexe. Aussi, lorsqu'il tombe amoureux, sa vie se transforme-t-elle en farce cocasse. Pour Évelyne Pieiller (Le Magazine littéraire) : « Tom Sharpe est un affreux. Un Pied Nickelé punky, tendance iroquois, qui serait né du mariage contre nature d'une Jane Aus [...]

    I didn't read Tom Sharpe when he was new published back in the 70s. I've finally caught up thanks to a collection of books cleared out of the library as too battered and worn! Pity I missed them the first time out. I shall look forward to reading the other titles. This one is hilarious.Sharpe has a keen ear and eye for the ridiculous. He takes the cliched situation and rewrites it as a really funny story. Here we have the castle in Scotland, the ancient lord of the manor, his bastard grandchild [...]

    Cindy Tomamichel
    Tom Sharpe writes books that will make you cry with laughter, horrified at the trainwreck that he crafts with care. It is hard to like any of his characters, and so it is easy to enjoy their downfall. Each action is developed from the personality of the main character, and while the resultant action is quite insane, it all makes perfect sense.His writing is comedy genius. While it is often obscene and disgusting, it is also something that keeps you reading and laughing into the dark hours of the [...]

    Close to three stars, but I figured in the end that it did deserve the fourth one as well (it was never anywhere near a five star rating). I particularly liked the way the .ard approached the problem of how to get rid of the tenants living in Sandicott Crescent. As usual Sharpe goes a bit too far for comfort (in my opinion), in the sense that it he makes it really unnecessarily hard to maintain a willing suspension of disbelief, but one thing that helped (and probably in the final analysis what [...]

    The endearing tale of Lockhart Flawse, raised in isolation on the fells by his grandfather, and oblivious to all matters relating to women or sex. When he meets the lovely Jessica his world changes, and so do the lives of many of his pending victims. As long as you are OK with the Englishness of the style, this is one of the funniest books you will ever read. WARNING - Do not read this book in public or whilst you are eating. Years later I am still laughing about this book. It is a comedy treasu [...]

    Creía haber leído todo/casi todo de Tom Sharpe y me encontré en la librería con este ejemplar, dudando si formaba parte o no de mi librería. Para más inri, toda mi colección Sharpiana se la había dejado a un buen amigo y no podía comprobarlo, así que lo compré y aunque no puedo estar seguro, creo que era un "falti" ya solventado. Comprobaremos este extremo y, de tenerlo duplicado, será un buen regalo para alguien.Como en el resto de casos, ágil lectura, y un humor muy propio del aut [...]

    Well, I was fond of Sharpe's Wilt, which was read in '90, and then I've read The Throwback in Russian. And now I wanted to reread it in English. Well, well From one side, I've read it from A to Z, maybe not all slang was understandable, but it was interesting, what will be the end (you know, I'm a bad guesser) From other side, I'm not a fan of these matter-of-facts deaths and murders. I cannot imagine the author, who add another touch to already bloody scene Want to check Wilt again and compare [...]

    Malcolm Campbell
    A disappointing collection of sketches, contrived and without any depth of character. Actually most of Tom Sharpe's stories have similar properties but in most you get to care about a character, to empathise with them and so to wail, bemoan or cheer for them in their escapades. In the case of Lockhart Flawse I found I just couldn't care.There's no doubting the skill of Sharpe's writing, in particular his verse when it appears in Scots brogue. But that's all I can commend from this novel. It's Pu [...]

    Lockhart Flawse, a bastard of unknown parentage, claims his ancestral Hall and lands through means devious, illegal, and violent. Among his victims are his London tenants, tax-men, and his unbeloved mother-in-law, who keeps the estate unless his father can be found. Black humor doesn't come much more graphic and vindictive than this; it's funny in places, but hardly worthwhile reading. Full of undeveloped premises, utterly lacking in character development, and wholly unrealistic even within its [...]

    Harry Maier
    Situational irony at its most brilliant: I listened to this book on my Kindle while driving around the Dolomites for a few days earlier in the month. I almost drove off several mountain passes as the tears of laughter streamed down my face. This is pure escape and the perfect way to enjoy the therapy of uncontrollable laughter.

    Jo Evans
    Hilarious. Far better than some of Sharpe's other works. I have laughed out loud to this book on numerous occasions (at least 4) and fully expect to read it again before it moves on. Not for the fainthearted or those whose tender ears flinch at mention of such things as dildos, cheese graters and condoms all in the same chapters!
