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).

The first half of the book did not flow well from story to story around the world. Less descriptive brutality.
The African scenes
Certainly. It held my interest. But I wish I had not read it.
Nice entertaining listen. Not a terribly complex story, but it holds your attention. Interesting commentary on modern society.
I usually like these books that Patterson writes with others but this one was just bad and improbable.
Interesting premise if only it had been written and developed better.
In the past I have really enjoyed James Patterson. This book was awful. Absurd premise, disorganized and poorly written. If this was the result of Michael Ledwidge then I certainly hope that the collaboration is at an end
destroyed the originaldraft
yes and no. Both have great qualities.
Attila because I felt sympathetic for him. Similar to humans but not quite the same. In a cage but allowed to be free also. I saw he really did not want to hurt anyone but could not help it, nature finally took over and he became what he was meant to be.. a wild animal.
Attla, same as above
yes, it was hard to stop.
I'm not a die hard Patterson fan. I pick up one of his books once in awhile. I really enjoyed this one. I had no idea where it was going to go but was pleased with where it took me.
Author, rabid Audible listener.
Animals are suddenly attacking humans and there is only one person who has dedicated his career trying to convince others bad things are happening. This is an entertaining book with some thought provoking ideas but it is just that.. entertaining. I enjoyed it well enough. Jay Snider played the characters quite well.
cocky, surface, meh
if you have nothing better to do.
narrator did an ok job but the voice he used for the kid was annoying.
a better story
not very realistic, a little too sci fi for me.
I haven't listened to any of his other work but he did a nice job.
non realistic a little goofy.
What little plot there was wandered all over the place. Story seemed to be stitched together.
Not a Patterson novel.
None. I seriously considered asking audible for a refund. I rarely review my listens, but felt a warning to others was warranted.
Books Co-authored by "name" writers are rarely a good as their indivuidual work. This selection is spectacularly bad.
