Inhaltsangabe

Deep in the African rain forest, near the legendary ruins of the Lost City of Zinj, an expedition of eight American geologists are mysteriously and brutally killed in a matter of minutes.

Ten thousand miles away, Karen Ross, the Congo Project Supervisor, watches a gruesome video transmission of the aftermath: a camp destroyed, tents crushed and torn, equipment scattered in the mud alongside dead bodies - all motionless except for one moving image - a grainy, dark, man-shaped blur.

In San Francisco, primatologist Peter Elliot works with Amy, a gorilla with an extraordinary vocabulary of 620 "signs," the most ever learned by a primate, and she likes to finger paint. But recently her behavior has been erratic and her drawings match, with stunning accuracy, the brittle pages of a Portuguese print dating back to 1642…a drawing of an ancient lost city. A new expedition - along with Amy - is sent into the Congo, where they enter a secret world, and the only way out may be through a horrifying death.....

Congo was adapted to the screen and directed by Frank Marshall.

    Geschichte
    "Interesting but a bit outdated nowadays"

    Michael Crichton is a good read - normally.
    In this special case the setting of the book is placed in the US / Congo / Africa during the late 1970s. Crichton speaks about loads of technical stuff (which is his usual way) that still does not exist in 2017.
    So basically it might have been a good science fiction at the time but nowadays you cannot help but laugh at some of his ideas.
    Nevertheless: Should you like to know all of Crichton's books, you should read it.
