    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."
    "Boring"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Written as if a project plan. Dry and boring. I am an animal lover, and the concept was appealing, given the additional attractiveness of settings in France and England. I gave up about half way through. Perhaps others who enjoy those same things will persevere. I could not.


    Has We Bought a Zoo turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Actually, yes! I was steadily listening to books, one after the other. This one was not completed, and it has been several months before my return.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Weariness! I tried hard to get through it, but the story was written as a documentary, a project plan --- "next we did this". Not at all compelling.
