Zoo
Zoo | James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge
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."

This was the first book that came to mind if taking this prompt to mean Person Vs Animal. I never read this and doubt I would but it was hard to miss promos for the TV show back when it was on.

5✨ This was a wild ride! Constant action throughout and humor to lighten the tone. We follow Oz who is not a very accredited scientist who is trying to enlighten the world on an increase in animal attacks on humans. Naturally, he is seen as a nut job. I‘ll be following this author for his adrenaline pumping work and humorous wit. Read for #LMPBC

Tattooedteacher I saw this series listed in Netflix I think. Good to know you liked it. 5mo

Animals have gone crazy. All over the world, humans are being attacked, and not just by wild animals - pets are going after their owners, too!

Jackson Oz is an American biologist who is determined to prove what and why this is happening.

But will he be too late?

I liked how this book started, and it was a great concept, but the ending fell flat for me. Still a quick read with some entertaining scenes !

Twainy I think I liked the tv show more 😳 2y
BeckyHart I got this as an audio book for a long car trip because I thought my husband might not hate it. I hated the audio book reader because he did the female voices in a strange way. Didn‘t love it either. 2y

Something is causing the entire animal kingdom to act aggressively, making man no longer the dominant force in nature. In most cases, the book is better than the show. Not in this case. It felt like this was only half a book - that it ended just as it was beginning to get good. The scientists solved the problem too quickly & then when it didn't hold they abandoned their base in the US for a place in the Arctic & that's when the book ends. What? 😕

This is only the second Patterson book I‘ve read. So far nothing above an “eh, it‘s ok” I do like his straight forward style though.

Turns out an apocalypse actually comes on pretty slowly. Not fire and brimstone, but rust and dandelions. Not a bang but a whimper.

I‘m not sure how I feel about this book. It was an “end of the world “ book and I really don‘t like that genre. Some very gross scenes. Yes, some interesting parts and it did keep moving.

Finished this as book 2 in my #4in48Readathon This book is okay but I think I‘d struggle to give it more than 2,5 stars. It didn‘t totally engage me and kept my interest enough but that‘s about all I could say. Think I need to avoid James Patterson apart from The Women‘s Murder Club.

Onto Book3!

TrishB Same! Although I‘m intrigued by his next collaboration- Bill Clinton co-writing! 4y

I️ finished my Z book tonight for #litsyatoz. Just four more books to go. I️ thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced with a decent explanation for animals gone wild. I‘m a slow reader but raced through this one thanks to the writing style and great storytelling. I‘ll have to check out more Patterson books.

Such a fun book for my "Z" read. Mostly far fetched account of animals taking over the world, but major props to the audiobook narrator- he was EXCELLENT!

This is a throwback pic. When I was reading Zoo, I looked up and Harpy was sticking her tongue out at me. A little creepy. As for the book, I give it between ⭐️⭐️ 1/2 - ⭐️⭐️⭐️. It was entertaining with a few problems in the middle. I did enjoy it and also read the short sequel, Zoo 2. I recommend the tv show too.

LiteraryinLawrence It looks like she was looming high above you. Is that true or just a trick of perspective? 5y

I read this book earlier this year & have started in on the TV adaptation. While the show is solid, they've kept a few characters' names, the main idea of "animals hate us & want us dead now," & NOTHING else. I get that changes have to be made to make a discrete story work as an ongoing series, but this has about as much in common with the book as the Daredevil TV show does with the Thor movies - technically the same universe, but that's about it.
