Personally, I think this was one of Crichton's best books. The movie was a terrible, embarrassing disappointment, but the book was solid.
The story in outline is about a camp that loses contact in the middle of Congo rain forest, and another team is sent out to investigate. It become a battle survival, with plenty of interesting characters and technology on the way. Good Crichton, good science fiction.
