3.0 out of 5 stars Animal Kingdom, 17 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Animal Kingdom: An Apocalyptic Horror Novel (Kindle Edition)
This is Iain Rob Wrights second book, downloaded without reading reviews as his first book "The Final Winter" was riviting. Animal Kingdom is set within a Zoo, nice place to be if the wild life was not so intent on killing all humans. It starts out pretty good, introducing the characters add to that a few fast deaths to begin with, followed by panic among staff and visitors as the entire zoo population goes on a frenzy to kill all Humans. Not just in the zoo, but across the world, or so it suggests.
The main characters have to survive different attacks from the zoo animals, from monkeys, lions and even Giraffes/Elephants and not to be left out Gorillas (Grey Back) and throw in a couple of pesky chimps, creepy crawlies. The book itself is a good read, however struggles to become anything like his first. The characters even though they are well developed are thrown into a building and have to survive not only the constant attacks from the beasties from outside trying to get in, but from each other as the baddie of the book attempts to become the Main Leader of whats left of mankind.....this is where the book falls flat, in my honest opinion. Even though its brimming with action and events, it falls away from the dangers outside and leans towards surviving the Baddie inside....which he turns out to be harder to kill off than you average Terminator. It all started so well too. Only three stars as it left a lot to be answered and left me feeling rather short changed. (At one stage I wanted a T Rex to break its way through the sky roof and eat the entire occupants just for killing off the story line....) Sorry, I know peeps are going to slate this review, but would not add this to my likable list. The Final Winter would be better to download, and give this one a miss, as The Final Winter is his best read!!! This being his, well, average....sorry ;(
