Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Oz, a former PhD student in biology, is determined to prove his theory of HAC (human-animal conflict). Unfortunately, the rest of the world doesn’t want to listen. But with animal attacks on the rise, Oz’s theory holds growing weight, though his warnings may come too late to save humanity. Yen continues its streak of graphic-novel adaptations of popular novels with this dark and violent apocalyptic tale. MacDonald’s black-and-white color palette and strong, realistic art style make the characters and settings—and the animal attacks—stand out, but keep the story from drowning in the gore that might have come from a full-color rendition. He doesn’t waste time on words when images should carry the tale, and when the dialogue is heavy he varies panel perspective to keep the story flowing. Readers may wish for a bit more character development, but the brooding ending wraps things up nicely. Graphic violence, sexual situations, nudity, and strong language make this one for adults, especially lovers of end-of-the-world stories. --Snow Wildsmith

About the Author

Andy MacDonald is a veteran comic book artist who has worked with virtually every major comic book publishing house and was one of the co-creators of the series NYC Mech. He lives in Brooklyn, NY.

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

More About the Author

It is no surprise that in January, 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James Patterson on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing," and that Time magazine hailed him as "The Man Who Can't Miss." Recently, NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams profiled Patterson's prolific career, AARP named him one of the "50 Most Influential People Who Make Our Days a Little Brighter," and Variety featured him in a cover story highlighting his adventures in Hollywood.

In 2013, it was estimated that one-in-five of all hardcover suspense/thriller novels sold was written by James Patterson, his books have sold over 300 million copies worldwide, and he holds the Guinness record for the most #1 New York Times bestsellers of any author. And his success isn't based solely on thrillers like the perennially popular Alex Cross, Women's Murder Club and Michael Bennett series. Patterson is now also the current bestselling author in the young adult and middle grade categories.

He's been called the busiest man in publishing, and that's not just because of his own books. For the past decade, James has been devoting more and more of his time to championing books and reading. From the James Patterson Pageturner Awards, to his website ReadKiddoRead.com, to his College Book Bucks scholarships and his regular donations of hundreds of thousands of books to schools here in the states and troops overseas (see interviews on Fox & Friends, The Dennis Miller Radio Show and CNN.com), Patterson has passed on his passion of books and reading and supported those who do the same. Jim personally funded a major ad campaign re-printing a recent opinion piece on CNN.com about how it is our responsibility to get our kids reading. The ad has run in the New York Times, The New Yorker, and USA Today. Those ads are a call to action to parents to make their kids reading a top priority; and were featured by USA Today here. Patterson believes that we cannot rely on schools, teachers or the government to get our kids reading; only parents can make this crucial change in the reading habits of our kids. Here are links to some interviews on his first-ever dual lay down (two books, one for parents and one for kids, in one day): AOL's You've Got, NBC's "Today Show" with Hoda and Kathie Lee, USA Today and Family Circle, NBC's "Today Show" with Al Roker, as well as an interview with AARP.

When I first picked up this novel and began reading it, I didn't know what to expect, and I put it down again because it seemed a far reach from the other novels I had read by Patterson. But, he and his co-author have done an excellent job. I have to admit it. This book will keep one reading even when you want to grab your favorite blankie and curl up in the closet with a baseball bat. It will even cause you to look suspiciously upon the family dog or cat the next time they act a bit strange. I have also listened to the audio edition of this book, and enjoyed it just as much, even already knowing the outcome, which definitely is out of the ordinary. The reader did an excellent job. I was just a bit unnerved when, while listening to it late at night, the coyotes down by the river in the rural area where I live started crooning at the tops of their lungs. There was that fleeting concern, you know, that it might not be fiction after all. Oh so glad that it is.

If you're looking for a truly suspenseful and somewhat terrifying book to read, then take on this challenge. It is most certainly worth the investment of your time and money. As for me, I think I'll stick with the other books, the ones with bad guys and their bad attitudes. They're fewer and farther between and they don't run in packs -- unless you're reading Patterson's Michael Bennett stories. Then you can ignore that last statement.

The description of the book was not clear at all. i ordered the book for a friend because i liked it so much. I had no idea it was in comic book form, and i was very disappointed when i found out. i would not have ordered it if the description was clear.

Im a sucker for graphic novels. I read at least 2 a week. I came across Zoo and decided to have a go at it even do it wasn't in color. Once I started, I just simply couldn't put it down. The story is amazingly well told. I can understand why some people wont like it like I did because there is too much dialogue, but it is SO well written that it totally drives you forward. It had me the whole time at the edge of my seat as I turned the pages. I can honestly say that ZOO is one of the best graphic novels I've read in my life. And like I said, I read A LOT of them!!!

Got this for my boyfriend after he read the full novel and he really liked it. He liked that it followed the story line of the book so closely.
