Review: The Zoo by Christopher Wilson | The Fountain
Sometimes you read a blurb and you look at a cover and you expect to read the book and forget about it in less than a week feeling nothing more than lukewarm affection towards the characters and the story. The Zoo by Christopher Wilson looks like one of these books but once you start reading it The Zoo offers a pleasant surprise as it certainly delivers a good story and memorable characters in less than 250 pages. In times of political unrest and abundance of satirical pieces Wilson shifts the focus from America and Britain towards Russia in the 1950s.
