What could have been an interesting look at zoo life and world war II in Poland was bogged down by random tangents. So, one of the zookeepers acquaintances happened to collect and mount bugs (it wasn't displayed at the zoo or anything like that). That doesn't mean I want to read/listen to pages and pages on different types of beetles!

I enjoyed most of this book. The parts about Jan's work with the Underground, sneaking Jews out of the Warsaw ghetto and just all the things that happened to the zoo and to Warsaw and the Zabinski family and friends during the war were facinating. I could have done without long passages about beetles etc. You can skip over those and not miss a thing.
