Why this book?:
Sounding interesting. Especially the zoo aspect.
Marlin has a stutter that makes him much more comfortable with animals than people. When Marlin's famous explorer father brings a jaguar into the zoo there's a sudden upheaval within Marlin's life. This was an interesting story. I definitely predicted some major events, but other aspects surprised me. Some issues addressed are: wild vs civilization, treatment of native people and colonialism, family relations, bullying and self-confidence, differences and likenesses in beings, socioeconomic structures, etc.
