    Already a BBC documentary miniseries and excerpted in the Guardian, We Bought a Zoo is a profoundly moving portrait of an unforgettable family living in the most extraordinary circumstances. This touching memoir is set to be a major motion picture starring Scarlett Johansson and Matt Damon, in theaters December 23, 2011.

    Christie says: "Fabulous narrator."
    "We bought a zoo -- Why???"

    Story
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    A good story for listening while you're walking, etc. as there are no major plot twists or mysteries to have to keep up with. This is the real story - not the movie - and it takes place in England. I recommend this for a time when you just can't decide what you want - and you're not in the mood for more murder, mayhem, political intrigue.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Would have liked to get to know the characters more. More indepth on the children, interaction with the animals.


    What about Gildart Jackson’s performance did you like?

    Narrators performance is great.


    Do you think We Bought a Zoo needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I would read a follow-up book - if he puts a little more "beef" in it.


    Any additional comments?

    I realize the author was giving us his real life "diary" of events and not making up sensational happenings.
