Review by: Simon Jenner on Oct. 14, 2012 :
The story is well set up with a father and son taking a bonding visit to a new kind of zoo where the visitors can feed wild animals. The relationship feels real and you are routing for the protagonists right from the start.

I guess, given the title and genre, readers will reader expect things to turn nasty and this won’t disappoint. The tension builds well as you wait for things to start getting messy. The story has vague echoes of the movie ‘Cabin In The Woods’ whilst being slightly more reality based.

If you like your horror uncomplicated and bloody then this one’s for you. If you see an advert for this zoo near you, I suggest you go and see a scary movie instead.

A new twist on a zoo visit, this short story was something completely different from what I’ve ever read before! But if I say too much, I’ll be giving it all away so I’ll keep my review short. This is not a read for squeamish readers, so if you can’t handle gore, then give this one a miss. For hardcore horror fans – such as myself – this novella is a delightful little treat. No plot twists, character development or doe-eyed lovers. Nope. Purely sixteen pages of all-out nail biting thrills and chills. A quick read that shouldn’t take more than fifteen minutes of your time, “Please DO Feed the Animals Zoo” will leave you thinking of zoos much differently.

Review by: Ever Star on Sep. 12, 2012 :
I received this book from the author to give an honest review.

This was a very chilling short story. A dad who wants to spend some time with his son and decides to take him to the zoo. But this is not your regular type zoo, this is one that you would never want to go to if you knew what it really was. There is blood shed in this book so reader beware but nothing too gory or at least not to me.

The dad and son realize that something is not as it seems with this zoo and the animals actually do eat humans. Will the father and son survive? Or will they fall victims to this zoo? You will have to read this book to find out.

I was given this story in return for an honest review. I have never actually read a horror story before and believe me when I tell you it had me gripping the chair. It's a short read, but it works. The father in the story wants to spend some time with his son, so he decides to take them to this new zoo that has come to town. Well, needless to say the zoo isn't exactly what it seems. I don't want to give anything away but it's a zoo with some pretty scary patrons running it with some really messed up intentions. The patrons of the zoo themselves had me cringing just reading the descriptions about them and what they look like. I think I would have ran for the hills if those people came anywhere near me. In the end there's some pretty bloody and gory scenes. I was clenching my teeth the whole time.

Please DO Feed the Animals ZOO

4 Stars

This is a very short horror story, consisting of around only 5000 words. However, the gore factor is there, the story is well written and overall a quick and entertaining read. Is it scary, sadly not. Far from it. But then, as people know, it takes a hell of a lot to scare me. I’m a horror fanatic, seen and read dozens upon dozens, so nothing is scary these days.

When I realized this was about a father and sons trip to a zoo, I thought, hmm, ok, what am I getting myself into. However, it is Unique, this is NOT your typical zoo, I never thought of anything like this before and I just wish it were longer. I like this authors writing style, its flows well, and even though its short and fast paced. You’re still able to visualise everything perfectly.

Disturbing but well-paced, tention rising by the minute, a very surprising ending and some visuals that would make your skin shiver! In other words, a terrific read! Too bad it was too short, I would have loved more horror development in each maze-room because the author knows her genre and she knows it well.

Review by: Brian McKinley on Aug. 16, 2012 :
It's a very straight-forward, well written story with a lot of gory detail and a grisly premise. I would recommend this story as being much better than a lot that I've read.

A great short story with an unexpected ending! The story really captures the attention of the reader with the vivid details. The details were quite gruesome in areas, perfect in a horror/suspense story!

I enjoyed this chilling tale of a man and his teen-aged son on a trip to an "unusual" zoo. A nicely crafted story. Well worth the read!
