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 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.

Not worth the 10+ hours

The story is simplistic and not particularly engaging. It is filled out with monotonous historical and biodiversity lessons. The characters are superficial. The narrator fair, although I had difficulty differentiating between her characters/voices.
Not recommended, unfortunately.

Boring

The writer just drowns on and on. Although the reader is quite excellent, she couldn't save this one.

This book kept me interested from the first page to the last Suspense intrigue adventure and pathos

Well done

#Audible1
Good performance. Was very pleasant to listen to, spoke clearly and crisply. Wish that there was a second performer for the male voices as it was a little distracting. Great pick up on the “daily deal”

Not super into the reader

I didn't really like it I find the narrator's out when she tries to do male voices. C has a nice voice and it would probably be better if she didn't try to do so many other voices. Plus the story was pretty bogus and the ending was lame . I'm glad I got this sale

Fantastic - better the second time around

I originally read this 20 years ago and have recently started re-listening to Michael Crichton books this year. Congo is one of the best books, in my opinion, that Crichton ever wrote. Great character development, realistic mix of science / fantasy, and steady plot development.

Good not Great

Any additional comments?

I found this particular novel from Crichton to be less interesting that the others of his that I have read. The story itself was good, and it had his scientific details that really help to absorb the reader into a world where the events are actually taking place. But the story seems to be a ton of build up to about 50 pages (or about an hour) of rap-up. The story seems to focus most of its content on the preparation and trip to the Congo, and falls a little flat there. The technology discussed is particularly interesting to me, but I can see it further discouraging other readers. I would recommend it, and I will likely read/listen-to it again, but before you dive in, manage your expectations. This will likely not end up on your top 100.

Very good

I really liked the story. The narrator did a decent job, although it took some effort to get through the male voices. Definitely worth it, however.

Iteresting read with great narration

Really liked the narrator, she was very even and did a good job of making the long explanations that while interesting, are not blended into the story line very well, more enjoyable to listen to.
Fascinating story that was very well researched of course which helps blend the science and fiction seamlessly.

Roller coaster

This book was incredibly fun to listen to, with some great narration to boot.

If you love Crichton, this is about as classic as it gets.

"Amy good gorilla."

Not his best

This book spends way too much time on events leading up to the final conflict and technical jargon. I purchased it as a cheap buy to tide me over until next month's credit, but I struggled with wanting to finish it in many places. The narrator did a good job differentiating between different characters and it was entertaining, albeit frustratingly slow in places. I recommend his other novel, Prey, over this one, but it's not a terrible choice.

SLEEP WROTE

THAT'S A B8 PROBLEM
Written in 1980, Crichton was just getting his feet wet. This is a mass amount of facts and figures. While some of these tidbits of information are interesting, the book as a whole is lacking. No character development, with the exception of Amy the Gorilla. The story was not compelling. You want to skip this one.

Too much explaining

80% if this book is explaining history, technology, etc. There is very little actual story. Every time the story has a few minutes of narration, then we must suffer through a long period of explaining how things occurred in the past or how some historical figure viewed things. A story should not need constant explanation.

kind of slow

thisnis my first Chricton story. I don't think I'll listen to more. the story was ok. interesting concept, but not well executed. often times bogged down by detail and research that may be true or complete BS. I wasn't interested enough to fact check.
