The appeal of Michael Crichton's books lies in the convincing way in which he spins a tale that, although not 'real' seems entirely plausible. This book concerns the discovery of a large primate/gorilla who seems to have superior intelligence. It opens the readers mind to the possibilty of what animals can learn and the intelligence of some of the higher primates, in particular their ability to learn speech and languge. However, the book is not at all academic and a fun and exciting read.
This is not the best Crichton novel. The intelligent gorillas are definately laughable. While trying hard to be scary it comes across as Cheesey. This is a good book for a one time read. Its a fast paced adventure tale.
