Publisher's Summary

For thirty-six years, James Patterson has written un-put-down-able, pulse-racing novels. Now, he has written a book 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, non-stop thrill-ride.

    "Brilliant"

    Wasn't too sure about this but wanted a new book for 1st October. This book is one of the best I have downloaded. Fast pace from start to finish, always felt like something was coming. I listened to it almost in one day. The narrator had the right tone and voice, one I will listen too over and over.

    "Fantastic read"

    What a great book, I thoroughly enjoyed listening to it, it was definitlly one of those books you just don't want to put down and can't wait to pick up again once you have. The idea behind the story is really simple but its something fresh and exciting. Don't miss this book.

    "Fantastic"

    A novel with James Patterson never usually let's you down and this audiobook doesn't disappoint. In the world we live, the nature of our lifestyles are used to make a book that maybe totally unbelievable relevant and exciting to listen to.

    "Good listen but......."

    A enjoyable read with a relivant 'cause' for the effect. Most of the story leads to why things are changing. The gap in years between part 1 and 2 was a little bit of a let down as I expected much movement on the cause effect. I cannot disclose the completion of the story only that the cure was already there, so why the lead into an amaggendon surviviour senario.

    "As Expected"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If somebody else other than James Patterson had written it.


    Has Zoo put you off other books in this genre?

    No, because I am a sucker for punishment.


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

    Didn't really like his voices for Chloe or Eli.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was a great idea.


    Any additional comments?

    I wanted to listen to this book after watching the first series on TV, I was somewhat put off by the fact that James Patterson wrote it, but I did find the series quite good. However I was right to be reluctant when it came to the book, James Patterson's writing was everything I've come to expect from him and more. Basically pretty awful. A friend and I had a great time laughing at some of the really shockingly bad cliche`s that were used. Just unbelievable that this guy gets to number one on the best sellers list, it's obviously got to be the airport sales as that's the only time anybody would read them. When there basically isn't anything else left to do. I felt sorry for the guy reading it as I honestly don't know how he didn't keep a straight face with phrases like 'the sheer bigness of the animal' and 'I fell to my knees in the sucking, reedy mud like a sinner in church'. Poor bloke. Otherwise I thought it was a good idea just very poorly executed.

    "Really different storyline that reeled me in."

    It took me a while to get into this story, however long after I finished the book I found myself thinking about the story line, a sign of a great book.
