Overview

California in the 1960s is a time of free love and peace on Earth. But the times, they are a'changing, and Gareth Brendan is trying his best to keep up. When his wealthy, powerful uncle gives him control of an underground newspaper, Gareth finds an outlet for all the radical thoughts and ideas he's kept inside. Suddenly, he's the head of an empire of casinos and clubs, movies and magazines, surrounded by models and pimps who cater to the ultra-rich.

Dreams Die First is an explosive story of one man's vision of liberated sexuality and how he turns that vision into a life of fame and fantasy. But all that power comes at a price, as a ruthless underworld syndicate seeks to topple Gareth's throne.

Harold Robbins, the world's bestselling novelist, does it again in Dreams Die First, a tale of power and passion that transports readers to another place and time.

    THIS IS A BOOK THAT AGES LIKE A FINE WINE.

    I've been a fan of Harold Robbins since my Freshman year in High School, and this is with out adoubt his GREATEST WORK. From the beginning the charaters grab you and they hold on to the end, Harold Robbins and Jackie Collins are masters of the Game of Sex, Power, Love, and Deception

    Gareth as a Cultural Hero

    The first time I read DDF, I was a teenager trying to find literature that touched on the 'normalness' of sexualities. I was in search of a Hero. I found him in Gareth Brendan. Throughout the story, you have a man in search of who he is, all the time accepting 'that which he is not' with admirable style. He is a man who places humanity before sexuality. He admires the beauty of difference while abhorring the violence effected within distinct societal circles. Harrold Robbins achieved greatness in the simplicity of this complex character. For in him we find a bit of each of us.
