Publisher's Summary

Once in a lifetime, a writer puts it all together. This is James Patterson's best work ever.

Total

For 36 years, James Patterson has written unstopable, pulse-racing novels. Now, he has written an audiobook that surpasses all of them. Zoo is the thriller he was born to write.

World

All over the world, brutal attacks are crippling entire cities. Jackson Oz, a young biologist, watches the escalating events with an increasing sense of dread. When he witnesses a coordinated lion ambush in Africa, the enormity of the violence to come becomes terrifyingly clear.

Destruction

With the help of ecologist Chloe Tousignant, Oz races to warn world leaders before it's too late. The attacks are growing in ferocity, cunning, and planning, and soon there will be no place left for humans to hide. With wildly inventive imagination and white-knuckle suspense that rivals Stephen King at his very best, James Patterson's Zoo is an epic, nonstop thrill ride from "One of the best of the best" (Time).

    "Disappointing Story line"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A different story direction. It started out good, but got a little ridiculous the further into the book we went.


    What could James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it more believable - It was far more science fiction than I like.

    "Bad Book"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and/or Jay Snyder?

    Yes, normally these authors pen great books, but this book is a loser for them.

    Story
    "meh..."

    Okay, great premise for a story..then *letdown*..The performer has the cocky sounding attitude that fits the character and dialogue but the dialogue tries too hard to be clever and come up with a wisecrack suitable for every situation.
    The story was more like an abridged version and that would be okay if it had been sold that way, but it felt like something was missing. Maybe James Patterson/Michael Ledwidge have run their collaboration course and need to give it a rest if this is what they are going to churn out.
    I was disappointed and won't buy any more of the stories from these authors. Sometimes, Mr Patterson, maybe quailty should be of more importance than quantity.

    "A captivating book"

    Captivating story which has a lot of reality to it could actually happen in this world at some point in time. Hard to put down. Very easy to visualize the main characters and to see the rose that they play

    "Pretty good Not inspiring"

    A bit too one sided politically speaking

    Weak plausibility If billed as Sci Fi it would be more understandable

    "Worth the read"

    I was leary of this book after reading other reviews. however, it was well worth the read. it is fiction and should be read that way...don't read it as a scientist, but as someone who enjoys a fictional book.

    "Good story but could be better."

    The story was pretty good but it created more questions that weren't resolved for me. The wrap up was a little too simple.

    "Often contrived"
    Any additional comments?

    Unfortunately, this book seemed to be written by the two different authors. The beginning and end were filled with clichés, forced humor, and stereotypical responses and characterizations. The middle had much of the stuff that one expects from a Patterson book. The premise is interesting--the reason I will likely read another book by Patterson.

    "Never a dull moment."

    Well written as usual. Another James Patterson/Michael Ledwidge masterpiece. Really enjoyed the performance as well, it topped off an already great read.

    "Anticlimactic"

    Fast paced, exciting, but end seemed rushed and flat. Either another book(s) are yet coming or Patterson just got tired left me needing more to finish.
