Zoo" is not a typical James Patterson novel. And yet, I loved the premise of the story which is basically that humans are so distant from "nature" that we're causing our own demise. Also, the book was co-authored by Michael Ledwidge. I chose to pick up this book because the storyline looked promising. That's the best thing I can say about this novel.

Zoo by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge. Posted on February 9, 2013 by shelleybean1. This is my first audiobook (well, apart from those terribly boring, cassette-tape ones of the Bourne something-or-other my Granny gave me when I was a teenager). After several chapters, I realized I can crochet and listen to the book, so it started going a little faster. It does, however, annoy my husband terribly when I play this in the bedroom when the kids are FINALLY abed. I wish he’d just listen with me so I could do it with him around.

The book had a great premise, but OMG does it fail to deliver. The writing feels like it's aimed at young adults - it's very simplistic, very black and white. The characters are flat, and underdeveloped. Rather than explore consequences of significant character actions (or inactions), the story just jumps ahead, by years at a time, leaving dangling plotlines in its wake. The author adds in odd pop-culture and celebrity references from years ago, which don't add anything to the book. They do, however, detract from the story and because they are old events, confuse the timeline. Plus there's a moralistic, preaching tone throughout that is really off-putting to me.

I have read statements from other reviewers that Patterson doesn't write all of his books anymore, and essentially leases out his name for ghostwriters to publish under. My guess is that's what happened here ... because this is NOT indicative of Patterson's early work at all.

Working in a library it's hard not to notice how popular (and prolific) James Patterson is. While I was skeptical of just how good anything could be when it's written by someone who spits out books at a dizzying pace, and who is probably handing much of the actual writing off to one of the other authors he seems to employ, I still figured at some point I should read something of his just to see what I thought. Being a completely standalone story, and of somewhat more interest to me than his typical "murder-of-the-month" fare, "Zoo" seemed like a good way to dip my toes in the water. It tells the story of the world's population falling victim to an uprising of animal violence and the scientist who is trying to warn everybody of the coming problem and its cause. It's a somewhat simple story, but it's told briskly and has a number of memorably suspenseful scenes. The science behind everything sounds relatively plausible, whether or not it really is I couldn't tell you, though I have my doubts. Either way, it was good enough to sell the rather dire and dramatic circumstances that unfold over the course of the novel. The characters are likable enough, but don't really feel all that fleshed out. On some other negative notes; the dialogue is sometimes quite bad and there are too many times where people make horrifically stupid decisions for reasons that I found it hard to believe would have been enough to get them to make them. That aside, it was fast paced and suspenseful enough to keep me reading. The short chapters make it feel like it's propelling along at a higher speed, even if it does seem like some sequences were ended too abruptly, negating any chance of building up real suspense. The end in particular, while logical to the story, felt pretty abrupt and left me feeling just a little unsatisfied. I enjoyed reading Mr. Patterson more than I expected I might, but I don't know that I'll be coming back for more any time soon.

I bought this book shortly after seeing the ad on TV for the series made of it. It starts slow & the main character is erratic at best. On a whim he adopts, he likes to think of what he did as freeing a captive wild animal from barbaric experimentation, a young chimpanzee. He give up his entire career by sticking like glue to a theory he has about HAV so he is forced to live in an old factory he has converted into an apartment where he is constantly bothered by the sound of the above ground trains.

When the plot finally gets going the book is pretty good though the editing surprised me it was poor at best. The plot has an authentic ring to it. The solution was at first over simplified but we humans like our creature comforts & the ending is really no ending at all. However it was much better then a cliff hanger meaning you must read the sequel to get the true ending.

I don't see how they will encompass the entire book in 3 months & I have my doubts it can be reduced for TV & be any good I guess time will tell.

This book is ridiculous. I'm willing to grant the premise, that's part of the whole suspension-of-disbelief thing. Maybe something is making animals more aggressive. But ALL animals except humans? I guess not fish, or reptiles, it doesn't mention them, but all mammals and birds. It's too much. Even chimps, so very closely related to humans, are subject to this terrifying behavior. Even given how crazy that is, the fact is, not only do the animals become more aggressive, they all turn into geniuses. And not just geniuses of their species, they all become planners and group thinkers. They all have a purpose to killing people, it's not just that they are more aggressive.

I reserve one star for books I simply could not finish. This book was short enough for me to get through it so I'm giving it two stars.

I am not recommending it.

This book was childish and ridiculous. Had to quit 50 pages before the end. Couldn't take it anymore because it was getting predictable by page 12. Definitely follows this formula: get to know the character briefly, character gets killed in some weird strange way, go back to the 2 main characters just long enough to remind yourself what idiots they are, keep moving through the book towards a great lack of satisfaction and absence of human soul. Wow. my daughter said it was a great TV show but my daughter is 10. still don't know why Grandpa even let her watch with him. if you want to read a book like this read Big Driver by Stephen King. At least in that book a woman gets revenge for something done to her. There is some sense to make of it. In Zoo? Not so much.
