This one was written when Robbins still seemed to give a damn about writing novels, but you can tell he got tired of it before finishing it. The sexy stuff was pretty graphic for its time and its popularity. Think of teenagers with a ton of money and no repercussions (didn't someone once say Hollywood is like that?) and you got an idea what motivates many of the characters.

Lady or no, she ate like a stevedore yself to bring myself up to the day. You Americans eat such enormous breakfasts, she said between mouthfuls. We certainly did, I thought as I poured myself a fourth cup of coffee. The phone rang and I picked it up. Mr. Carroll at the front desk, the voice identified itself. Sorry to disturb you, Mr. Perino. Quite all right, Mr. Carroll.

In The Betsy, Harold Robbins breaks open the shocking world of the automobile industry. A world of savage ambition, searing passion, and breathtaking fortunes won or lost in a desperate struggle for power! They were two men bound together by their daring, their vision - and their erotic power over women. Angelo Perino rose from an immigrant family to life on the razor's edge, where fast cars and faster women were his for the taking. Loren Hardeman was the patriarch of a giant automobile empire - and of a family sliding into decadence, adultery and destruction. From Detroit to the lavish estates of Grosse Pointe, Miami and the Riviera, they conspired to build the world's most advanced automobile - The Betsy. To do it, they would risk everything they had - and the destinies of the men and women caught in the fire of their dream!

BOND
I had read this when it was first published and liked it. I liked it when I read it this time, too, though maybe for different reasons. I was glad to see the pictures and have the names of the actors who portrayed the characters in the movie. Tommy Lee Jones (a younger version) will always be Angelo in my mind. Enjoyable fast read, though a bit dated in style, as should be expected for a book written more than 30 years ago.
Unereel
Love the author.

Re-read every so often, a good leisure read. These reviews need to be longer than they need to be written.
Ann
This is probably one of the all time greats. For maybe the third time, it was fun to reread and experience the car business. Robbins was a giant in his story telling ability.

Great book , am now reading sequel The Stallion. Best to read them one after the other.
ARE
Old book, but interesting reading. Despite (I'm sure) considerable research and consultation, Robbins displays on almost every page his ignorance of automobiles, the auto industry and how things work. The book is mostly about a fictitious auto company founder/CEO and his family, focuses on family politics and intrigue, with some good sex thrown in for good measure, and does not even resolve at its end whether or not its radical gas-turbine-powered "Betsy" car even reaches production, let alone succeeds. Which of course it never could have done. One (of many) egregious errors that jumped out at me (was there not an editor) was his mistaken assertion that Detroit time was one hour behind Florida time. Really?
It was OK
