'The Zoo intrigued me from the very first page. Jamie Mollart's debut novel is a grippingly dark and ultimately moving story about exploitation, destruction and the possibility of redemption.' Alison Moore, author of Man Booker shortlisted The Lighthouse
'A truly exceptional debut novel . . . sure to be one of the big hits of 2015' --The Book Trust
One of those rare books that you have to read a second time the moment you reach the end no small feat for a debut novel. This could well be the next Bret Easton Ellis.' Staff recommendation at Waterstones Leicester from Simon
'Engrossing' --Book oxygen
This was a book I read quickly and avidly, which made me think and which I will recommend. --New Books Magazine

I found this a hugely enjoyable read and await future novels from Mr Mollart with some anticipation.
Kindle version reviewed- Occasional issues with spelling, nothing egregious. Overall well ported copy
Mollart certainly is a word smith of great quality and the novel is lovingly crafted. This isn’t the usual novel I read but was transfixed from the first opening pages right until the end where the protagonist finally experiences some redemption. There are moments of splendid humour, horrific insights into the realms of personal madness and the odd comforting reference to Leicester.
Well done to author for delivering a superb debut novel and I can’t wait to get to grips with his next one.
The concept of the figurines was original and chillingly wonderful, and the part they play at the end is satisfying for the reader.
