Much, much, much better than the movie.  - posted by Rocky Keele 03-15-2007 22:56
If you made the mistake of watching this awful movie, take heart in the fact that you can read the book and be fulfilled. An exciting adventure story with nonstop action. And to slam on the movie some more, it had to be the worst adaptation of any book ever. Ok, I'm done now.

I liked this Crichton book unlike the movie adaptation, which I hated. The book however is a good story about several expiditions to Africa to find some valuable diamonds and a long lost city. All sorts of bad things happen along the way, and there is a semi shocking discovery too. A fun read, especially if you like Michael Crichton. (But stay away from the movie it was terrible!)
