One of the few I didn't finish

So, I don't often start a book and not finish it. This just didn't grab me. It was well written, I just didn't care about the characters (I started it because I care about animals). I usually give a book 50 pages before abandoning it. This one I gave almost 100 (87 to be exact). Abu was boring. No, the story written about Abu, Zombie and Lula was boring. Too much back story, too much back and forth, too much extraneous information. So I leapt to the epilogue where I learned the animals from the Mosul Zoo had been brought back to health (and beautiful coats) and were now being properly cared for. Unfortunately the humans did not fair as well under ISIS.
Perhaps a better writer could have made this tale more interesting. It SHOULD have been interesting, unfortunately it was not.
