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

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.
The idea that animals are not "dumb" as a lot of people think. They can organize, control and plot courses of action towards a planned result.
I didn't feel the closure I experience with most of his books....but then, perhaps I wasn't supposed to.
I felt as though I took a personal ride along side the main character
Keep a wary eye on animals particularly lions
While I'm not into doomsday scenarios, this story made me want to build a well stocked, impenetrable bomb shelter! Well done!
I prefer books Mr. Patterson writes on his own (or so he says) but selected this one after seeing the ad for the new TV series. Interesting theories and entertaining but could have done without the cheap shots at Fox News Channel & Megyn Kelly. I don't mind the promoting of your agenda but don't disparage others in a situation where they cannot respond. Shame on you, Mr. Patterson.
This book was very well written and greatly enjoyable. I got through the whole book in less than four days because I couldn't stop listening to it and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I definitely recommend this if you enjoy James Patterson.
The book itself is short on substance. Characters are more or less flat though there was hope for the protagonist in the beginning. Sub stories weave in and out without really the book together or adding to the substance of the novel. These subplots seem more a vehicle for Patterson to practice his horror and graphic material writing. The plot was woven so loosely that characters PPP in and out without introduction or salutation. I initially wondered if I'd accidentally purchased a badly annotated abridged copy.
Great boob as always. I Can not wait to see the TV show... I really wanna see how close to the book they stick, and the Visual effects, are going to have to be out of this world.....
