    1. Hang on - "When a fleshless corpse is found on a Florida estate, a reclusive caretaker, an investigative reporter, a police officer, and a woman discover" "When a fleshless corpse is found on a Florida estate, a reclusive caretaker, an investigative reporter, a police officer, and a woman discover" "When a fleshless corpse is found on a Florida estate, a reclusive caretaker, an investigative reporter, a police officer, and a woman discover"Um.Ok.Guessing the "woman" doesn't have a job/personalit [...]


    2. I know that going back and rating long-ago-read books is probably a little silly, but this book was seared into my brain as an adolescent.I picked it up because I was in high school and loving much of Anthony's work (Cluster series, Incarnations of Immortality, Apprentice Adept, etc - everything but Xanth) and I saw it at BookStop. What I found was one was one of the most disturbing novels I'll ever read in my lifetime. An alien uses pheromones to lure in victims to devour them from the inside o [...]


    3. I liked it as a teen, but in retrospect, this book is endlessly creepy (in bad ways) and is the one that finally began to clue me in to Piers Anthony's recurring paedophilic themes.


    4. We don't ban books anymore. That is what the Chinese did to ensure ignorance of the masses. Plus murdering the scholars and burning the libraries. Confucius lost, civilisations crippled. Russia. Throw the thinking people under lock and key. Imprisoned their shining stars. However, I have torn 2 to shreds in my life and this shall be number 3. Hi Piers. Ha. You ruined your one great series many moons ago with lechery. Since Heinlein's great fall I have watched a few great male authors descend int [...]


    5. Dafuq did I just read? This was more like a deranged repressed child molester's fan fiction than fantasy. Yeesh.



    6. All right, so Piers Anthony is long established, and this book has been out for years and years, too. So why am I reviewing it? Well, first of all, I think it's important to talk about past books too, whether we loved or hated them. The wonder and magic of books is that they stay around - look at examples like Pride and Prejudice, after all. Books have the power to be read and influence people far into the future. So I think it's important that I touch on this book because to be honest, when I t [...]


    7. The cover flap says "Be warned. No previous work by Piers Anthony can prepare you for the experience of Firefly." So I think "I've read 4 volumes of Bio of a Space Tyrant, I think I can handle this." I was so very wrong.This book is a love letter to rape. It catalogs various ways in which people, mostly women, are raped. It outlines the reasons why victims encourage rape. A grim parody of a Washington Irving tale explains how a rape can be justified and even reward the rapist. The true monster i [...]


    8. This book sealed the fate of Piers Anthony as an author for me. Most of his stories have too much questionable (at best) content, and this one flew over the line like an ICBM from Russia.Any female child the age he portrays subjected to especially one scene he writes, would have to be hospitalized - PERIOD. It's sick, twisted, perverse, depraved, and other similes I can't even dredge up.I respect the man for his prolific writing, and for his attempts to help break down the barriers of the publis [...]


    9. Bizarre, pedofilic sex scenes and alien anal penetration. Not at ALL like Anthony's normal writing. Reads like bad erotic fiction and the 5-year old sex scene is incredibly graphic and shocking.


    10. It's a trick. Get an axe.If you come across this book, do not read this book. Do not touch this book. Get a can of gasoline and a match and burn this book to ashes.Normally, it would pain me to say such things. I believe firmly in the exploration of ideas, even ideas we find repugnant or off-putting. However, there are ideas which I believe merit no argument or discussion, because they are wrong. There is no argument that can be made for them. And a whole great chunk of this book has, at its cor [...]


    11. You see, I'm reviewing a book I did not really read and have no wish to read. I read parts of it, and it was so horrible I had to comment about it.This book has a graphic scene of a 5-year old having sex with a pedophile in a POSITIVE light. And then, when the perpetrator goes into trial, what follows is the corniest scene ever, with everyone in the courtroom being "moved" by their "love", in tears, etcGH. ARGH. ARGH.So with no further ado, if you want to know what I'm talking about, read on her [...]


    12. The premise of this story was unique. I felt, the whole time I was reading that it was bordering on science fiction, fantasy, horror, and erotica.The description of the formless beast and explanation of how it lived was excellent. Some of the erotic elements bordered on disturbing, but I was prompted to keep reading because I was waiting for some redemption for the main (character?)



    13. Probably gonna shelf this one. Piers is my favorite author of all time, and it's my goal to read all of his many hundreds of books, but this one is just boring the crap out of me. I was really intrigued to see for myself what most reviewers of this book are pissing, moaning and calling for the head of Piers for, but alas, I'm just bored by the inundation of information I'm getting on every known form of plant and wildlife in Florida.


    14. I read this book several years ago (sometime in 1995/1996). Not my favorite work by Piers Anthony (Incarnations series gets that honor) but decent and really different and defintely not material for everyone. What I want to address here is the extreme reaction to the sex scene with the five year old girl in chapter 32 that is giving everyone the heebee jeebies. I recently came across reviews of that and thought "I don't even remember that part" so I went and check out the book again and re-read [...]


    15. Without a doubt, the single worst book I have ever read. Not for the nauseating pedophilia, but because it's just bad writing. Poorly developed characters who say things no real people would ever say. Characters that are neither likable or even necessary to the plot. Plot devices that make no sense, like one character who makes up ridiculous, nonsensical stories that become so annoying to read that you just want to skip over them completely. An unseen villain who is never fully fleshed out, expl [...]


    16. For erotic horror, it wasn't terrible. The "pedophilia" content was far less disturbing than reviews would lead one to believe but it could be troubling to some. Certainly not the sort of youth fantasy the author is known for, this novel was all grown up and went far further than the typical horror novel would in exploring human sexuality. It wasn't very appealing as erotica would go, but it certainly went to places untouched by most. I wouldn't suggest this to most readers as it was troubling a [...]


    17. If you’re familiar with this author at all, you’ll know him for his whimsical humorous stories. This is his first (and only?) attempt at horror, and I must say – the man has a sick, twisted mind.


    18. Living in Florida, I love stories that weave the essense of what old Florida is like. This is definitely a weird read. It has been a long time since I read it, but it made a lasting impression.


    19. This book wasrange.Now, to be honest, most of Piers Anthony's books are strange - it's what I love about them. But they're strange in a good way, while this was justrange in a strange way.I got this book from a free shelf at a thrift store. I was like 'Ooh, free Piers Anthony, yay!' Then I started reading itd mostly just got confused.I'm not sure if this is intended to be horrorrilleroticamance It sort of ended up a jumbled mess of nothing in particular.Many people, I imagine, take offense at so [...]


    20. As a teenager I was hooked on Piers Anthony's "Xanth" series. Naturally, when he came out with "Firefly," a supposedly more mature, serious novel, I read it. And I regretted that decision more and more as I forced myself to read it.This book was beyond terrible. Setting aside the whole issue of whether he's justifying child molestation, it is pure literary drivel. Its only redeeming quality is as an example to aspiring authors of how *not* to write.This book is touted as "horror." The story was [...]


    21. Huge, HUGE trigger warnings for pedophilia and child abuse.If it were possible to give a book negative stars, I would. It was a viable, if rather creepy, alien invasion storyen came the flashback/interview with the little girl. No, no, NO. Sex with a child--a child of, I believe, six or seven--is never all right and never consensual, and making the child the instigator is fucking disgusting and trying to paint their relationship as loving and affectionate and a viable kind of wife-husbandry is s [...]


    22. I picked this up thinking it was the Joss Whedon thing (you know how they all steal their ideas from popular books, and I never bother to keep track of who made what).It wasn't.It's long, tedious, features questionable subject matter (up to and including a rather graphic sex scene with a 5-year-old - I suspect that under the latest child protection laws this book might actually be illegal to own as a result, not to mention ewwww), can't decide between a failed monster novel and rather dull eroti [...]


    23. One of the first erotic books I read as a teenager. I loved Anthony's Xanth series and picked this up because of his name. At the time, I loved it -- but after picking it up again recently, the writing (especially the dialogue) is justt good.


    24. lovely book. I hardly could keep it down let alone not read certain passages more than once. The themes of insanity, sexuality and horror were so beautifully span in this tale successfully to produce an instant classical work of art. Strictly for mature readers only!!!



    25. I read this book when I was about 14. I thought it was part of Piers Anthony's Xanth series. Man was I wrong, I really enjoyed it but definitely was not expecting my first sexual thriller.


    26. I am at a loss of how to rate this book.SpoilersThe prose was well written and the story far exceeded my expectations of a monster of the week book.There is a monster and it does kill people in a gruesome way but there is a lot more here.Two different love stories, characters with diverse backgrounds and who grow and change throughout the arc. Short stories mixed in through the narrative that relate to the characters and their history in an allegorical way. If this was all I think I would give t [...]


    27. There is so much wrong with this book. Piers attempt at erotic horror not only fails it's one of the worst. I would say this is the equivalent of The Room for books, but that seems harsh cause The Room is entertaining. It's not just cause of the pedo scene. It's cause when you really think and break down the book you find that nothing holds water. Everything from top to bottom is just plainly terrible. The only good thing it can offer is showing aspiring writers what not to do. I explain more he [...]
