The science and the setting of "The Great Zoo of China" make the scenario completely believable. The action is overwhelming, making the reader feel giddy as the pages fly. You will believe that dragons are real.
I enjoyed The Great Zoo of China from start to finish and found it difficult to put down. It's fun, it's tense, action-packed and rewarding with a subtle humour that offsets all the action and bloodletting. A Hollywood Blockbuster in Book form.
Jurassic Park with dragons instead of dinosaurs... so compellingly written that you get caught up in the furiously dramatic story... THE GREAT ZOO OF CHINA is a blockbuster of a book that tears along at a shrieking pace.
When it comes to thrillers from Matthew Reilly, phrases like 'high octane' and 'intense action' don't even come close to adequately convey how much insanity he manages to cram into every novel. I've come to expect twisty-turny plots that rattle along at a breakneck pace and that I'll be so caught up that I'll be frightened to even blink. The good news is that The Great Zoo of China is no exception to this rule.
A very exciting book... I loved every page of The Great Zoo of China. It's undemanding, great fun to read, thrilling, exciting, gory and did I say thrilling?
Brace yourself for non-stop action... Fast furious, this is a must read for fans of Matthew Reilly and the action genre.
'If you liked Jurassic Park prepared to be totally blown away by this action-packed blockbuster.'
