About the Author
Top Customer Reviews
SPOILER ALERT: human-induced ecological collapse is a neat premise. The accidental generation of a pheromone that makes animals hate people is a bit of a stretch. The way in which these premises and plot-whoppers are worked into the story, however, is stupefyingly clumsy to the point of being insulting.
The publisher says "Zoo is the thriller he was born to write." That's a little bit like saying "this cardboard box is the mansion he was born to build," or "this steaming pile of excrement is the meal he was born to eat." My only consolation for having my intelligence insulted by Patterson is that Patterson's publisher has inadvertently insulted him with the glowing praise.
The problem is that a different voice appears in every book. Haven't heard the masters voice in years. Pity.
This book is sadly not what the real James Patterson would have written all those years ago.
One star is a much higher rating than this book deserves. It is just awful.
Even a science fiction writer would not choose such a ridiculous premise to base a book upon.
The plot starts out bad and only gets worse. Completely absurd is a good choice of words for it.
Save your time...read anything else. At least then you will not have wasted your time.

On the edge of my seat, my bed, the sofa, the lounge chair by the pool. It was a page turner. I liked the book better than the TV series.Published 21 days ago by IrishSpanishgirl
