ZOO by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
If you shivered through THE BIRDS, you will have a panic attack reading ZOO. The premise of this one plot book is simple – the animals wake up one morning and realize they hate humans thanks to the manipulation of our environment by scientists and the inaction of Congress.
The one person who sees the scope of the problem of seemingly unrelated animal attacks is the one fully formed character. Attila the chimp is also fairly nuanced. Everything else is pretty one note. This is a quick, albeit terrifying, read.
Patterson has written better books. It will be interesting to see what the TV mini-series soon to come to our small screens will do to flesh out the skimpy plot/story.
