Book Description

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 Continue

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 . . .

    Uno de los peores libros de Michael Crichton. No te aburres al leerlo, eso es verdad, pero tampoco te deja mayor huella, ni sacas conclusiones claras de toda la historia. Se deja leer y eso ya es algo. Recomendado únicamente, si no se tiene nada más que leer.

    è stato il primo romanzo di crichton che ho letto : meraviglioso! soprattutto perchè odio letteralmente il genere fantasy. e poi, non si può parlare male dei morti

    Mah, tutto questo miscuglio di scienza, tecnologia, avventura e storia un po' "alla Voyager" mi ha lasciato un po' perplesso. Voglio dire, alla fine il risultato è abbastanza piacevole, ma a mio parere un po' superficiale.

    "...l'impressione era quella di un vasto, smisurato mondo grigio-verde, di un luogo estraneo e inospitale."
