Once in a lifetime, a writer puts it all together. This is James Patterson's best book ever.

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.

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 from "One of the best of the best."

After watching the TV series which I loved I just had to read the book but I was completely disappointed. I am not sure if I read the book before the TV series that I would like it any less then I do now.

I am not sure what was worse. The story line, the characters that were written about or the writing style. All have their own downsides.

I just don’t know what I was thinking when I thought I would read this. The writing was just terrible and I think that is where the plot line went wrong. If it was written in a different way or angle it would have been a passable story but it wasn’t. It had so much potential. I mean who doesn’t want to read a book about animals turning against humans, well not me anymore.

I can’t even put into words how much I just didn’t like this story which annoys me, I just know that I have total regret in reading it.
