      ”How oft did I recall the odour of ale on a barmaid’s breath, the smell of baking bread on St. Giles Street when dawn blushes like an unclothed virgin and huswifes sweep the cobbles, yea and Mistress Felsham’s bawdy-house wherein for a guinea my ardour was wont to sate itself in fleshly fragrance which outstripped the seraglio of the heathen Turk. Thus within my litter did I pass long hours sighing for Oxford, nor was there solace save in sleeping or in nosing the treasures of my portmante [...]

      Lizard World is a work of cracked genius. An outrageous story—part Philip K. Dick, part John Barth, and part Tom Jones—told in prose as rich as blood pudding, it manages to be both horrific and comedic and it never flags. Bazes’ mind seems to pour forth endless invention effortlessly, yet the reader knows that prose this burnished and melodic comes only from close attention, meticulous craftsmanship and the silver tongue of a poet. And what a tale he has concocted! There are mad scientists [...]

      Terry Richard Bazes is insanely creative. I could leave off writing this review having said only that, satisfied that I have made my point well. Because it’s true—so true. But somehow that is not enough, and there is more to say about Bazes’ wild imagination and his new novel, Lizard World. In Lizard World, the author roundly lampoons humanity’s seemingly unquenchable desire for immortality (at any cost) by pulling back the curtain and revealing it in a less than chivalric light. Griswol [...]

      The writing in "Lizard World" is breath-taking beyond belief in this incredibly inventive, dark tale which spans and flahes back and forth among different eras. The story line is one of a kind and the character development shows the mark of a truly gifted writer: every roundly drawn character has unique aspects and comes to life brilliantly. The narrative voice transforms according to the era of the chapter to adopt the writing style in which it takes place. The author has perfect pitch in captu [...]

      Book Title: "Lizard World"Author: Terry Richard BazesPublished By: Livingston PressAge Recommended: 18 +Reviewed By: Kitty BullardRaven Rating: 5Review: A mixture of English and American humor with an equal amount of the macabre thrown in for good measure; a few scaly beasts, both reptilian and human in nature; depraved swamp people clinging to their long gone heritage; and an old journal with a dark secret hidden among its brittle pages, makes for one heck of an amazing tale. I was sent a copy [...]

      If I had to describe “Lizard World” in one word, what would it be? “Depraved” comes to mind, possibly “revolting”, but also, undoubtedly “brilliant”. Another word could be “gruesome”, if “hilarious”. “Convoluted” at times, albeit “engrossing”. In truth, it is quite unlike any novel you’ll be reading in some time. The plot is complex but I’ll try to let you have an idea of it, hopefully without giving away too much. In 1687, a lecherous and rakish English earl, [...]

      Bizarro, gross, intriguing story. Well-written with varying narrators both 18th century dialect and modern hill-billy. This seeming incomprehensible mismash works. Not for the weak tummy.

      very odd book with amazingly grotesque characters. i wouldn't have liked it at all except that it is exceedingly funny.

    10. David Williams on said:

      I like how this book starts in the swamps, but doesn't wallow about in them. Early on, when we are first introduced to "Lizard World", a swamptastic theme park in Florida, I was prepared to encounter a more sci-fi twinged version of "Swamplandia", but Mr. Bazes gives us a rich tale that is really in no way like Ms. Russell's 'gator book (except of course that both novels have alligators and are simply fantastic). This ends up being a rather melancholic tale about unquenched desire, and how utter [...]

      ** I received this book through giveaways **A great well written book. Over different time periods and countries the author has done a brilliant job with the style of language used. This helped to get a clear picture of all the characters along with the description. For me once you get that connection with characters I will enjoy the book.The humour in the book is very enjoyable but it does not take over from the story as can tend to happen if an author is trying to be too funny. The plot had m [...]

      LIZARD WORLD is unlike anything I've ever read. It's wildly imaginative, and the use of language (from 17th-century English to modern-day Florida redneck-ese) is dazzling. The book has a touch of Frankenstein in it, with its unsettling vision of the possibilities of human splicing, but the moments of horror are lightened by Bazes' absurd humor. The book is a challenging read--particularly the 17th c. English parts--but it's also a pageturner right up to the delightfully surprising ending.

      Dentist, Lizards and some WTF moments puts some hilarious laughs between you finger tips. (in my case the listening of the narrator did a great job.)I actually don't know how I feel about this book, but I did enjoy this audio book.A better review to come, after I "READ" the book. Thank you to the author for the freebie code.

    14. David Stifel on said:

      An amazingly good synthesis of Johnathan Swiftian 18th century prose and Hunter Thompson Gonzo style craziness. Oh, and did I say funny? It's very wicked humor in evidence here as we examine all the monsters inhabiting the human zoo.

      Bazes' magnificent octopus blazed through my hours by drawing me in, and keeping me engrossed in the story until I absolutely positively had to go to the toilet. The storyline; and,I suspect the author; is absolutely mad in the best way possible. Read it!

    16. Sade on said:

      Amusing, but confusing. Two minds in one body can lead to hilarious hi-jinks yet sadly never quite get there. I get the feeling that at least a third of this novel - the important third - somehow got left on the cutting room floor. Bazes has a decent ear for language, and deftly handles the transition between hapless modern protagonist Smedlow and 17th century rakehell Griswold. But his plot doesn't hold together near as well as the 'splicers' Lemuel Lee's uncle Earl stitches together before dis [...]

      The first half kept my attention but the second half was just repetitive and boring. Not an author I would read again.
