Will the last humans on Earth please turn out the lights?
James Patterson’s ZOO was just the beginning. The planet is still under violent siege by ferocious animals. Humans are their desperate prey. Except some humans are evolving, mutating into a savage species that could save civilization-or end it.
Jackson Oz (the hero in Book One) starts in Arctic area (where he thought his family would be safer) with wife Chloe and son Eli then is called back into service to continue helping to find an end to murdering wild animals.
Now this book is only 140 pages long but Oz travels to the following places and performs amazing feats in each one:
Paris drops off Chloe and Eli
London for a meeting
Bali to find why animal attacks are not happening
Johannesburg to find feral human.
Idaho to drop off feral human, Helen. Oz and gang are attacked by mustangs but one look at Helen and they flee.
Japan to find more feral humans.
Plane. Japanese scientist turns feral. Why? No clue. Does it happen due to their body shifting or can it be transmitted from human to human. No idea.
Middle of Pacific.
Back to Idaho where Chloe and Eli show up next. Oh plus Helen escapes. Of course Chloe and Eli have to be in trouble again.
Pearl Harbor for a phone call and trip to airport.
Salt Lake City Jackson Chloe, Eli together again.
Roadtrip to Vegas. Of course where else would you go to gamble on vaccine for feral humans.
Las Vegas of course where you find cure and city falls.
Deep underground with President.
Seriously a bad novel and highly unbearable . At one airport (I forget which one) Oz had to pay over $29,000 for a ticket. Also an obssession to hit as many places as possible, maybe they threw darts at a global map to decided where to next send Oz and gang. I also have no clue what turns folks feral. It was never hinted at and I doubt there will be a Zoo 3 so we may never know.
Don’t waste your time with this one!
