Zoo [Hardcover]

I've finished "Zoo" by James Patterson.

Product Description

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.

My Review:

This book opens with a couple of brutal lion attacks against people (pretty gruesome stuff).  This book shows you what happens when animals are tired of being locked up in a cage, tired of being stuck in a house and eating really bad food.

The main character is Jackson a brilliant scientist who is complete smart ass.  He has hot sex-buddy who is with him even though he is known as a joke among the scientist world.  No one believes him about the animals being crazy - the ones that are still living.  He lives with a three-year old chimp named Attila who he stole from the research company he formerly worked for.  While working in Africa studying lion attacks his life is forever changed when he arrives home to find his former lover brutally murdered by Attila.

It was pretty shocking to hear what is causing all the animals to become murderous and dangerous.  It has to do with pheromones that triggers their killing instincts to attack in brutal fashion.

This book was a fast paced chilling and scary ride which will keep you up all night.
