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 made into a film directed by Frank Marshall.

Michael Crichton is one of my favorite authors this book is no exception to his excellent work if you are a fan of the movie like any book this will be very different but still worth the read The book is far superior to the movie I know the narrator is getting a low rating but I thought she did an excellent job tried to pull out several different voices made it interesting to listen to

Narrator was great, despite the other low ratings I believe she was exceptional. This book far surpasses the movie. If you like the movie you’ll love the novel.
