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).

    "A bit strange"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Zoo to be better than the print version?

    Never read the print version - I like all audio books better, as I can do something else while enjoying a book (like driving)


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge ’s story?

    The freaking end!!!! Oh man, really????


    What does Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Some emotion that I might miss with just my brain!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, almost did it too!

    "Absurd Plot and Predicable Story"
    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge again?

    NO.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Zoo?

    The scenes where they gun down and drive over domesticated dogs. That seemed like overkill.


    Any additional comments?

    First of all, there are 98 chapters for an 8 hour book. That is ridiculous and unnecessary. The book was very predictable and boring. It wasn't well written; a book for the masses.

    I wasn't terribly fond of the cocky, doomsaying main character either (who keeps a chimp in his apartment when he is preaching about the dangers of increasing animal aggression/killings?). He is the hero who saves a damsel in distress. The book plays into gendered stereotypes; the suave, brave man saves the helpless, sexy french woman who is completely dependent & has a panic attacks when he is away from her.

    The premise of the book and the subsequent solution are absurd and totally nonsensical. It's funny that the science of this book could be so wrong despite all the main characters being scientists. I can suspend my disbelief to an extent, but the solution was instantly effective where in reality it would probably take years before any slight difference would have occurred, especially since it took so many years for the problem to develop. Animals aren't light switches.

    Story
    "Almost nothing like the TV show."

    Good spin on how humans engineered their own demise. Don't quite like the narrator voice when he tries to speak for the female. Good voice for the male. Plot dies out towards the end. It kept me engaged and wanting to hear more.

    "Super sucks"

    The story line was ludacris and impossible. The characters were flat and uninteresting. Don't even get me started on the ending... perhaps one of the worst endings I've ever read or listened to.

    "Disappointed"

    I usually like Patterson but this was just plain stupid. Poorly written and overly performed. An ad for radical "green" groups perhaps? I will never get another book from this author combo. Shame on you.

    "good story sexiest character writing"

    the token females in this story were weak. Patterson approached them with clear disdain, making it hard to enjoy the book
