Review: THE ZOOKEEPER’S WIFE by Diane Ackerman

zookeeperswifeChristopher from Doolittle’s recently posted a review of The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman.  Here’s a snippet:

The Zookeeper’s Wife is a harrowing (non-fiction) tale of the an intellectual Polish family who risk everything to hide enemies of Nazi Germany (mostly Jews, but others as well) in Warsaw under occupation. The amazing thing about the book is how light-hearted it comes across. Ackerman has a real skill for conjuring the presence of her title character, Antonina. Even with all the stresses of daily Polish life under German rule, we can feel Antonina’s effusive personality flowing through her crazy household.
