Produktbeschreibungen

Kurzbeschreibung

For those readers tired of zombies comes a new kind of apocalypse. Iain Rob Wright creates a world where man's best friend no longer exists and the only laws left are the those of the jungle. A frightening read with very sharp teeth.

--65k words in length plus 10k words of special edition bonus content
--From bestselling author, Iain Rob Wright
--BONUS MATERIAL: includes 7 additional short stories based in the Animal Kingdom Universe


An ordinary day is about to turn very very bad...
Joe has taken his wrestling-mad son, Danny, to the zoo for his weekend of custody. Everything is going just great until a bizarre snake attack sends everybody in the zoo running for cover. It's a horrific attack, one Joe's poor son is unlikely to forget, but the terror does not yet seem to be over.

There's a lot more going on than a simple snake attack - and if the hungry lions, bellowing gorillas, and rampaging elephants have anything to do with it, there'll be more bloodshed to come. The animals are attacking, all of them at once. It's almost as if they have a plan.
Welcome to the bottom of the food chain...

5.0 von 5 Sternen An excellent premise well presented. 30. März 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The idea that ALL the animals in the world would suddenly start a war on humanity may sound preposterous, but Iain Rob Wright handles it so cleverly that the reader moves into high gear as of the first page and doesn't look back.
The constellation of the characters thrown together work nicely to generate a steady undercurrent of tension throughout the whole story, so our "hero", (a father who has taken his son to the zoo for the day) is not only battling against the forces of nature, but also the petty greeds and aspirations of a couple of the other survivors. As the friction among the group heats up, you'll start to wonder who really are the bad guys, the man eating animals or the ambition hungry people held under siege?
I really enjoyed Animal Kingdom and recommend it to anyone.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An exciting read! 30. Oktober 2012
Von laurathomas61 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
With Animal Kingdom I got everything I was expecting and more!

It was supposed to be a special day. Since the divorce, Danny really missed his dad and had ants in his pants when he found out Joe was taking him to the zoo. Joe was just glad to have his son with him. It didn't matter what they did but he knew Danny would love the animals.

Everything is great until the reptile show starts. The handler has a giant boa constrictor wrapped around his body. While he tells the gathering crowd about the snake it suddenly begins to wrap its thick coils around his neck, constricting and crushing the man. Joe does his best to help him, but the snake is too strong and time runs out for the handler.

The crowd panics and runs in all directions, horrified by the grotesque killing. As Joe grabs Danny and rushes to get help, he notices people are screaming and running from all directions. They couldn't all have been at the exhibit. Then all of the animals start making a racket. Something bad is happening elsewhere in the zoo.

Deciding to get inside, away from whatever is occurring, Joe ducks into the new visitor's center. Most people were running for the exits, but Joe had to get Danny to safety quickly. There were several people inside, along with the zoo's curator. The curators protestations that an animal attack couldn't be happening are cut short. When Joe turns to see what he's looking at, he can't believe what he's seeing. There in the doorway are four massive lions, snarling and revealing their thick fangs, dripping with blood.

This is where the story really cranks up. The animals, for some unknown reason, have gained intelligence and have turned on mankind. From the lowly spiders to the gigantic elephants, they all want everyone dead.

The diverse group of people trapped in the visitor's center are safe for the moment, or so they think. The animals won't be denied, and find ways to get in. How the individual characters react to this is very interesting. As you'd expect, there are the one or two bad apples that think their way is the only way, you have an older woman spouting prophecy, a young girl without her medication, Joe, whose main concern is his son Danny, the curator, not much help there, and an older man with some fight in him. It's up to them to work together. Otherwise, no one will get out of this alive.

Except that the story takes place in a zoo with animals from all over the world, it reminded of a book I read years ago. I also watched the movie and really enjoyed both. It was Day of the Animals.

The author gave me the same sense of dread and gut-wrenching fear with Animal Kingdom. You just knew people were going to die and die horribly. The animals are too many to fight off.

Reading scenes about the group dynamics was very real. People react differently when their lives are at stake. Some step up, some cower, and some act like blustering buffoons. I can't figure out why some people can't see past their own arrogance, or should I say ignorance.

This is a book about a war we may not be able to win. About surviving minute by minute and always looking for the way out.

At the end of the book there are some short Bonus stories. They all tie into the Animal Kingdom book and the one by Eric. S. Brown, Night of the Squirrels, is very interesting!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A revamp = even more scary! (some spoilers) 6. Oktober 2013
Von Vix Kirkpatrick - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A day out at the zoo becomes a fight for survival and not just from the animals!

Joe is good man, his character is flawed and has the IRW usual aspects of heroism laced just enough with, WTF to make him believable.

Grace I found irritating, especially at the end. Bill was lovely and I think he could have played a bigger part. Shirley the necessary "nut job" was on hand at all the right moments, not enough back story on her. Mason? hmmmm a waste of space for me.

Randall and Victor - villains, and good ones but a bit too OTT, and with no extended fleshing out to them it was hard not to just find them predictable.

IRW characters are usually always full & rounded characters, with a drip feed of back stories which make you love, loathe or have a mixture of feelings about them, but I really thought that with this revamp he would/could have developed them more.

There are no corners cut on the gore! and some bits are mostly definitely written to make you squirm.

I was sad to see the goldfish story removed, as I found it highly amusing, but more epilogue stories are added to give a "nice" rounded edge to the global horror.

IRW states at the end this is a stand alone novel, but he has comments and little nods to many of his other novels.

*** SPOILER ***
I was disappointed that no reason was given just left open for readers imagination.
I was also hoping that he would comment on a sequel.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Animal Kingdom: an apocalyptic survival horror novel 1. Oktober 2011
Von RandiTS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book made me cancel my trip to the zoo this weekend AND look at my yorkies a little bit differently..

A new outlook on why an apocalyptic event took place - no flu, no zombies, just really really annoyed animals..

The main character and his son are at the zoo during his weekend visitation. They are talking to one of the zoo keepers when the animal he is holding goes crazy and kills the keeper. While trying to get help, the Dad and son notice everyone is running around in a panic so they head to the education center to get out of the pandemonium to find someone to report the incident to. Unfortunately, some of the animals come along and start eating people. (trying not to write any spoilers here)

The story revolves around a group of strangers that took shelter in the Education building and how they are trying to survive. Turns out, it isn't just the zoo animals that are having a bad day but ALL animals, including cats and dogs, have revolted against mankind and we are now on the bottom of the food chain.

Very creative scenes of how the animals attack and your usual run of crazies that you seem to get stuck with when an apocalyptic event happens. I did like the fact that the main character wasn't some "super hero" type but just a normal Dad protecting his child.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Don't Bother 10. Februar 2013
Von E. J. Hughes - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Joe is visiting the zoo with his son, Danny, when something goes terribly wrong. At the snake show, the snake-keeper is strangled by his python. Joe runs from the snake house with Danny only to find that snakes aren't the only thing going amuck. Joe goes into a visitor's center & research facility along with other fleeing visitors. Joe notifies the only staff member he sees, Mason, but before they can make any plans, four lions appear and start killing people. Strangely though, they aren't killing for food, they're just killing.

A news clip reveals to them that this isn't an isolated event; all over the world, animals have turned on humans, killing indiscriminately. And it's not just zoo animals, it's every type of animal. Bugs, rodents, housepets, and wild animals.

Those who survive the lion massacre are Joe, Danny, Grace, Mason, Randall, Bill, Shirley, & Victor. They barricade themselves in the employees' area. Randall is a businessman who immediately threatens to sue the zoo and bellyaches about missing a Very Important Meeting. Victor is a rough Scotsman who is revealed to be a racist homophobe, which is a problem because Bill is black and gay. Shirley is a religious person who declares the bizarre attacks to be God's punishment on sinners. Grace is a young woman who'd been at the zoo for an interview.

While the premise was interesting, I hated the one-dimensional characters who populate the book. The three creeps are all portrayed as narrow-minded bigots who immediately want to take advantage of the situation to do what they've always wanted to do: stab things, seize power, & preach their beliefs to a captive audience. The good guys are all open-minded and noble. One of the supposed good guys does do a turnaround about 2/3 thru the book but it's so out of line with the character traits & sensible nature that had been written of the character previously that it was ludicrous.

Bottom-line: I wouldn't waste your money on this poorly written tripe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved this book! 24. April 2013
Von S. Hendricks - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read it now several times. Iain Rob Wright is now one of my favorite horror writers and I hunger for his next ghoulish(in the best way) creation. Imagine having an innocent trip to the zoo with your son turn into unspeakable terror as the animals within not only turn on their keepers but also become frightfully intelligent and band together to come after you!!! Not going to say much more except if you love gore and you love a delightful shiver down your back, then this book is for you!
