A terrifying roller-coaster ride.

A fresh and unique novel from a very talented writer. From the very first death it makes you want to explore the world of dragons.

Usual glorious, improbably silliness

Where does The Great Zoo Of China rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The usual silly, glorious, improbable, hillarious, impossible plot twists and developments that one expects from a Matthew Reilly novel.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Always sad to reach the end of an MK novel, as the belly-laughs that the plot developments ellicit are always welcomed.

Have you listened to any of Sean Mangan’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Enjoyed the narrator's performance, would happily listen to more.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

'You've seen it all before'

Any additional comments?

No, it's not your imagination, it's closely aligned to at least two other major movie themes......
