This book was great! The author writes about a man's real life experience during the time of war and it reads like a novel. This book is set in Iraq when ISIS takes over and unfortunately the zookeeper Abu Laith's zoo. He and his family and friends risk their lives to try and save the animals. His favorite lion Zombie and other animals are on the verge of death and are starving. Luckily Dr. Amir is able to help get the animals through all the checkpoints. Quite a heroic tale and I am grateful that there was someone who was willing to go to great lengths to save the animals of the Mosul Zoo. If you are into a heartfelt story with a little humor this is it. I honestly hadn't heard of this story before so I am glad I was able to get this book to review.
