Synopsis

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

Total

For 36 years, James Patterson has written unputdownable, pulse-racing novels. Now, he has written a book 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, non-stop thrill-ride from "One of the best of the best." (TIME)

Great read. Hard to put down!
December 10th, 2015
This book was absolutely amazing. It really showcased how humans are going to be their own undoing. Seeing things from both the animals P.O.V and the people's, made reading the book more interesting. Zoo has definitely left a lasting impression. I highly recommend it.

A fictional account of what we are doing to planet
August 30th, 2015
Have never read any of James Patterson's books before....but I will read more. Saw commercials for a TV series based on this book.... Decided it looked good. I was right. Did not see it on TV....books are usually better. This just proves we as a species are destroying the planet with our greed and selfishness.

It was pretty good.
August 3rd, 2015
I liked the book. I saw many reviews where other readers complained about it having an abrupt ending with nothing resolved. I did not feel that way. I think the ending was very appropriate because it forces you to see what we as humans are doing to the world. It is the nasty truth that people don't want to think about. If you are looking for a feel-good kind of story with hero's that save everyone, then find something else to read. This is a very dark and disturbing look at mankind and how it is killing itself for the sake of technology and luxury. Makes you really think....

I absolutely loved this book! I have been watching the TV series named after this book, and although they share the title, the stories have some following of the book. There are many details that are different and I found those differences made the book much more interesting. James & Michael make the personalities a lot more depth and substance. You feel their every emotion and pain. As well his description of the animals thoughts gives you a much more real time understanding of what's happening to them. They also give the reader a feeling of being there and the hope that it truly never actually happens. Congratulations to Mr. Patterson and Mr. Ledwidge on a novel so well done!!!

Remarkable I can't believe how this book ends, You must read this book, It speaks so loudly of human nature, that I couldn't imagine anyone not touched by the depth of emotion that this book conveys, you will likely find it unforgettable

I really enjoyed this book! Well-written, suspenseful, and thought-provoking. Humans have survived on wit and cunning rather than tooth and claw. But we are soft, defenseless prey against highly evolved predators that now roam the streets. I can't wait to see how the TV show reflects the story on screen!

Disappointed
May 23rd, 2015
I enjoyed this book somewhat. I was a little surprised by the ending it is unresolved which left me with a sense of disappointment in the whole story . It did seem a little preachy in the end hitting home the message of our impeding doom because we use electricity.

Not a book for everyone but it is a break from the normal routine. Doesn't take forever to read so that makes it a perfect downtime for a hectic life. The storyline draws you in and holds you to it.

Awesome book but ending sucked. Felt like he forgot to add a ending chapter at all. I didnt even realize it was over i actually went back to content and reread everything but ends kinda mid sentence or mid thought. Besides that a really good book and very thought provoking.

Zoo by Paterson and Ledwidge
October 29th, 2013
Every now & then Paterson & company write a stand alone novel that is outstanding. Honeymoon & Now You See Me come to mind. This novel is quite suspenseful. This will make one heck of a movie! I didn't give it 5 stars because I was kind of disappointed by the abrupt ending. I would say 4 and a half stars. Read this one!
