Publisher's Summary

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).

Love Patterson, but this was just SILLY

I love Patterson's books, and I've loved his cooperative endeavors with other authors as well. Still, this book seemed a bit preposterous and silly -- and this is from an avid reader of fantasy and sci-fi! The performance was very good, and the book had a decent flow and suspenseful feel. Heck, I didn't even mind the ending. Nevertheless, this seemed to be one of those "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" type of things that I just couldn't quite take seriously enough to enjoy, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't meant to be comical. I'll certainly read the NEXT Patterson book, hoping for more.

Not a typical James Patterson

What disappointed you about Zoo?

The plot. It was ridiculous. Chimpanzees, dogs, squirrels and rats in a pack hunting humans. Really?

What could James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not much. I love James Patterson but my guess is Micharl Ledwidge must have written most of this book.

What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

Good narration. The narration was probably the only thing that kept me listening.

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

Not cut but add. The chimpanzee kills the former girlfriend and then all of a sudden it's five years later. I needed to hear a little emotion.

Any additional comments?

I automatically purchase any James Patterson book. From now on I will pay more attention to the co-author.
