After checking out ZOO by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and enjoying it immensely, I wanted to be sure to check out the follow-up ZOO 2 by Patterson and Max DiLallo. But before we get to my thoughts, let’s learn a little more about it…
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.
The story itself really made me think of the possibilities—could the overstimulation of our brains from radio signals and the like really awake something more primitive in our DNA? I would hate to think it’s possible, but until it happens, you never know what’s possible.
In theory, the story was terrifying which made for a delightfully frightful listen. I found myself getting pulled along with the characters and that’s not always an easy thing to do. It was a very enjoyable follow-up to the first book. I would highly recommend it.
