This is one of those gems that I would never had known about were it not for a wonderful online book club. I love stories like this: about the smaller-scale heroes of WWII. Regular people who did what they could in the face of extraordinary evil. It's a story that serves to be known and I enjoyed it immensely. ( )

I thought the story was very moving and that the Zabinskis where very interseting people. I realize it is a true story but I wish it were written a little bit more like a novel and less like a History book. I would have liked to have heard more about this incredible family and the inhabitants of the villa rather than the events of the war, but at the end of the day I'm glad I read it. ( )

After watching the movie, which I thought was excellent, I read the book, which I also thought was excellent, but not exactly what I thought it was going to be....just another historical novel.

This is actually a true story of the life of Jan Zabinski and his wife, Antonina, written from the author's point of view, using Jan and Antonina's journals during World War II. It is evident that God must have placed them in just the right place to be able to hide and save hundreds of Jews from death. They also had the right temperament to pull it off.

A lot of research went into their story as the author seamlessly intertwined quotes from their journals and at the same time adding other stories in Warsaw as they unfolded. She also captured the family's love of animals so well. She personalized and gave life to this writing. You will even find a few family photos of Jan & Antonina. She did describe quite a few photos in the story that she had seen but weren't included in the book. I wonder where we can find those photos? If only all history could be told in this manner.

At the end of the book, the author lets you know what happens to Jan and Antonina, and her family, as well as a few other people, after the war. She was also able to travel back to Warsaw and see some of the damage that still remains today, and writes of how they have progressed in building back the city and capital of Poland. ( )

The full title of this book is The Zoo Keeper's Wife ( A War Story). The first part of the title is well in keeping with the kind of subject matter that has made me a long time favorite of Diane Ackerman. This is a true account of Jan & Antonia Zabinsky keepers of the Warsaw Zoo before Hitler and the Nazis invaded Poland. Once the invasion takes place the zoo is destroyed and most of the animals are either killed outright or shipped to German Zoos. The few remaining animals become household pets of the Zabinsky's villa which turns into a safe house for members of the Warsaw resistance. Ironically,with the horrific depravity of the War waging outside the zoo gates, taking care of the remaining animals is one of the few ways in which the characters are able to maintain their humanity.
The book went back & forth from the relative calmness of life at the zoo, to the horrors facing the people of the Warsaw ghetto.
And this is where I had a problem with the book. It's like Ackerman couldn't decide on whether she wanted to write a serious account of the Warsaw ghetto or a light and airy treatise on the antics of the animals inhabiting the Zabinsky villa. I often felt that the harrowing depictions of The Warsaw Ghetto immediately followed by some amusing anecdote about a tipsy hamster or a bunch crumb eating parakeets, trivialized what happened in the ghetto.

2.5 stars. I listened to the audiobook. It took me some time to figure out that when the reader slipped into accented English, she was narrating a direct quote from Antonina Zabinski's journals. This was a bit distracting. Overall, I'm sure the Zabinski's role in harboring Jews at their Zoo property was heroic and fascinating, but this book did not make their story vivid or bring it to life in any way. ( )

At dawn in an outlying district of Warsaw, sunlight swarmed around the trunks of blooming linden trees and crept up the white walls of a 1930s stucco and glass villa where the zoo director and his wife slept in a bed crafted from white birch, a pale wood used in canoes, tongue depressors, and Windsor chairs.
