I was expecting so much more more from this and I was really disappointed. The story was bland and more like an encyclopedia than a story. I though there would be more with the animals and actually using Jews IN the zoo. The parts that were story like were good, but they were infrequent.

Tales of strength, disaster, delight, and integrity in war time Poland are spun through the lives of the family who inhabited the "ark" of the Warsaw zoo. Beautifully read and not to be missed.
