bookshelves: fiction, recommended

About a corporation hired to extract blue diamonds out of the jungle of the Congo rain forest. Their first expedition ends in a mysterious disaster. The reader follows the team on their 2nd expedition. Also with them is Amy, a young gorilla taught sign language and her trainer. They enter the mystical rain forest competing against other expeditions trying to reach the diamonds as well. Once they arrive at their destination they face an unknown enemy. A very good read, finished it in about 2 days. I like how Crichton chronicles the book like a diary and the chapters are in dates, like the book was written from somebody who went on the expedition. As always Crichton uses advanced scientific and technological concepts well.
