I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was a very interesting story of what goes on behind the scenes at a zoo with the animals, the people, and the politics of it all. Though written very objectively the book tells of all the little interesting stories of the individual animals and thier histories. It also chronicles the rise and fall of the zoo'z CEO Lex Salisbury, his successes and some of his shortcomings. Also, the devoted people that work as zookeepers and thier triumphs and tragedies. i give it 2 thumbs up!

After seeing many very positive reviews, I went ahead and read Zoo Story. I found it to be ok, but nothing special. Rather than pointing out systemic problems with zoos and exotic animal collection, as reviews had led to believe were detailed within, this really is just a good look at the operations of one zoo in Tampa. While a good job was done there, it was not the depth of reporting that I was looking for.
