This book reminded me of the movie The Happening. It has a similar premise of humans reaping what they sow by upsetting nature or in this case, animals of nature. What made this book so good for me is that "what if" or "it could happen" feel to it. Telling the animal's side of the story through Atilla was brilliant.
I listened to this book mainly in my car while driving out of town to appointments. I don't know if it was the story or the narration by Jay Snyder that made it so enjoyable for me. I have only read a dozen James Patterson books and love how real his characters seem. The narration by Jay Snyder was awesome and I will look to see what other books he narrates, love his voice and inflections. He added such good realism to the events as they unfolded.
I got the book as I liked the new TV series and was interested. The novel and TV show sort of bump in the night and share a Title... Definitely falls under the "based (loosely) on the novel". Both are good, each in its own genre.
BUT, I enjoyed the audiobook. It was engaging. The narrator has a great voice!
at first I was trying to compare this book to the movie , the book was more detailed and brought out more ideas that this could happen it gets us to realize that even the things unseen that we create can be detrimental. this is a really good book, wish there was a part 2.
Heard about the TV show and decided to listen to this before this is definitely one of those stories they took the characters out of it and change a whole lot of the rest. If you think this will be like the TV show know is totally different, but still a good story all the same.
The interaction between man and beast.
The gorilla was so kind and loving
James Patterson Aced it.
