Iain Rob Wright's "Animal Kingdom" was Intense
November 15, 2018
At first, I wasn't too sure that I was going to like Iain Rob Wright's novel "Animal Kingdom", but once I dove in I couldn't put the book down. It was the characters that kept me glued to the novel. You have the two main characters, father and son, Joe and Danny, a black gay character named Bill, a woman who has obsessive compulsive disorder who likes to cut herself if she's not on her medication, Mason who works at the zoo; and then you have the three characters that cause much of the conflict, Randall, who, shall we say, is not a very nice guy, more of a corporate douche bag who is more of a dictator who will do anything, even murder, to get his way and Victor, who is basically Randall's thug, a homophobic and racist psychopath and a crazy religious women who believes the end of the world is coming and all of the sinners will be rounded up and taken to Hell. If it was just about the animals coming together and attacking the humans, it wouldn't have been that interesting; but with all of the character dynamics that come together and all of the conflict that ensues you can't help but have a fun time reading. Iain Rob Wright's "Animal Kingdom" is gory, twisted and very suspenseful. I highly recommend this book.
