If you follow me on Goodreads you already know my thoughts on the novel that inspired this TV series.
All in all, Zoo is a good premise but in the book, at least, it was executed poorly. I was hopeful for the TV series because things that are glaring in written word can sometimes be less obnoxious on television.
Unfortunately, two episodes in and I already found myself questioning and rolling my eyes more than I should have for a story of this type.
For me, with stories like this, the key is realism. If I don’t feel like this could ACTUALLY happen, I can’t enjoy it. Having characters that make questionable decisions is one thing, having things happen that simply couldn’t happen is another.
I don’t want this review to have spoilers, so I’m not going to specifically name the moments that made me roll my eyes and go: Riiiiiiight. Instead, I’ll let you either find or not find those elements for yourself.
Without the eye rolling I would probably enjoy Zoo. I think the premise is interesting and entertaining. The suspense is very well paced.
It’s just those dang eye rolls… they get me every time.
All in all I WOULD tell people to give this one a try but just know if you’re like me you’ll probably be too annoyed to really get into it.
