One of my favorite Crichton books. I can't believe how ridiculous the movie was. Read the book.

Deep in the heart of the darkest region of the Congo, near the legendary ruins of the Lost City of Zinj, an eight-person field expedition dies mysteriously and brutally in a matter of minutes. Ten thousand miles away, at teh Houston-based Earth Resources Technology Services, supervisor Karen Ross watches a gruesome video transmission of that ill-fated team: a camp destroyed, tents crushed and torn, equipment scattered in the mud alongside bodies--and the grainy, moving image of a dark, blurred shape. In San Francisco, primatologist Peter Elliot works with Amy, an extraordinary gorilla with a 620 "sign" vocabulary an a fondness for finger painting. Her recent drawing matches, with stunning accuracy, the frayed brittle pages of a Portuguese print dating back to 1642--a drawing of the ancient lost city. Immediately, a new expedition is sent into the Congo, descending into a secret world where the only way out may be through the grisliest death.

Loved Congo. Fast paced, very interesting topic. Usually books about lost anicent cities are in South America. This one's in Africa.
