A great summer read. Read it in one fell swoop as it was in a three-in-one book with "Eaters of the Dead" and "Sphere". The book still has suntan lotion all over it, becoming exactly what this type of story is - a summer read, held up in your lotion-slathered hands, the book acting as a sunshade because you're not wearing your sunglasses to avoid that raccoon look. Anyway, what a great story, taking your needy research gorilla back to Africa, bitching with competitive researchers and rougish great white hunter characters, the expedition bristling with the sexiest new technology Crichton could dream up. I'm still upset that Crichton died.
