Zoo by James Patterson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Zoo was thrilling and interesting in a way that you only get with a really good sci fi. This was definitely my favorite James Patterson novel. It almost felt as though he was channeling Michael Crichton as he described the feelings of fear as you see a flash of teeth and claws. The thought of your beloved pet ripping your throat out sure gave me some uncomfortable feelings. This is the fear inside of all animal lovers, do our animals really love us back?
I really enjoyed the writing style and felt connected to the snarky Oz and beautiful Chloe. The book was far better than the series. The series takes the initial idea and makes it something else entirely. The series would have been far better if it had stuck to the story line of the book. A blood thirsty chimpanzee breaking the glass to enter your apartment and rip you apart...no I don't think it needed any dramatization.
