Having loved JURASSIC PARK,i gave this a go,expecting to be not so impressed,but i loved this one too.
An expedition goes wrong,disturbing footage is sent and stories going around get another team going back to the seemingly dangerous area.
Some interesting characters from the start get this story rolling along nicely,then AMY the sign language gorilla,comes into it and it gets even more intersting. Heading into the jungle,led by a headstrong woman,they go to find the desired materials and the truth of what happened to the others.
The question being: are they ready for the truth?
For me,the story moved along at a great pace and i don't understand why this book is so slated,still that's opinions for you.
All i can say on top of this is if this isn't of Crichton's better books,i must be in for a real treat when i get around to reading some others of his.
It had me turning pages faster than i expected,thumbs up for a great story,brilliantly told.
