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).

    "Worst JP I've heard"

    If you love James Patterson you will hate this one. It's nothing like his normal great books. I'm glad I only paid $4.95.

    "Great book."

    This book was awesome. I really enjoyed it. I picked it up as a daily deal after hearing about the TV show. I listened to this book in a day and a half couldn't put it down. I tried to watch the TV show but couldn't get into it at all the book was so much better.

    "A Man's Best Friend?"

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It was very interesting, full of adventure and held your attention until the end. Especially when it became a television series, you wanted to read to get ahead of the next episode. Would recommend this book to anyone that loves a good suspense, action packed story. Happy Reading. ....

    "So Mostly Predictable"

    Of COURSE the main character has a chimp as a pet. He brought up several side characters in other chapters that either live or die then you never hear from them again, which starts to make you not care. The end was a bit of a surprise but other than that everything EVERYTHING was so predictable and his two main female characters were over top. Damsel in distress in africa happens to have a french accent, is super skinny, gorgeous, and is also a super intelligent scientist? Riiiiiiiight.

    "Language!"

    I wish Patterson would've encouraged his partner to scale back on the profanity. It was used excessively and wasn't necessary more than half of the time.

    "Suspense"

    This book will keep you on the edge. It will also make you angry at man's never ending self entitlement towards others, animals and the earth. Makes you think as well as entertain.

    I am the author of "Inner Fears", a thriller by MFKing. I am a social media manager for Jazz Social Media. Audio books are my main entertainment, and I think the best entertainment offered today.

    "great idea, awesome reader, science & writing lax"

    the reading was the best I've ever heard. the story could not suspend my belief. the writing was critique-group bad. character point-of-view was ridiculous--chimps thinking of electrons as metaphor. the metaphors were all conceived without character. all on all, the book was.tolerable because of the new conception of a Movie apocalypse, and the totally entertaining narrator.

    "Really good book"

    I really enjoyed this one. It was suspenseful fun and I couldn't wait to find out what happened next. I sure hope there is a sequel coming out. The narrator did a fantastic job. All in all I highly recommend this book.

    "Easy read."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If people behaved more rationally, and if a few of the events were more realistic. No beef with the science fiction portion as that part is the basis that the rest is built off of. Once you establish the scenario, the people should behave appropriately to the situation they have been thrust into.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Secrets of a D-List Super Hero, by Jim Bernheimer. Already 80% done and loving it. People are behaving in character and appropriately to the story :)


    What aspect of Jay Snyder’s performance would you have changed?

    He needed to tone down his reading for this book. The style he used would be great for a super hero or tough talking bad ass.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was popped back into the real world too often as I thought about the various things that happened that were unsupported by character personality or by the disaster as understood at a given point. Some was explained later and brought previous concerns to rest, but coupled with other concerns about logic, it brought down the story.


    Any additional comments?

    A very clean writing style. Even with my reaction to the story, I got through the book just fine. If you aren't one to second guess the author, you will probably enjoy the book, assuming the premise works for you.

    I was fine with the explanation for what causes the disruption in the animal sphere.

    Good news for watchers of the TV show. It takes a different direction than the book. The two share a few character names and have almost the same premise, but otherwise are two different works. Patterson said he expected the series, with its' changes, to be better than the book. I think it had its' chance. Great casting and filming. Bad writing in my opinion.

    This was my 5th, and probably last, Patterson book. What he chooses to write doesn't thrill me. If you think what he writes is gold, this book should be another great one for you.

    "Disappointed"

    Started off great, good plot and well researched. The ending was terribly disappointing. Really?? Washington elite causing a resurgence of the animal savagery. Too bad. Wouldn't recommend to any friends
