The style of writing in Congo is weak and it feels as if a teenage student had a large part to play in its authorship. So poor is the storyline here that by the time one has reached the end it is not apparent how ludicrous this ending is, having got used to the lack of realism and originality throughout the novel. The constant waffle about Bas-reliefs bored the pants of off me well before the ending and as for the gorillas......just stupid!
Having enjoyed the movie of Jurrasic Park I had hoped for something good in Congo but was severley disappointed, even annoyed that a writer could make so much money out of such dross.
Do not waste your time or money on this book, it is an insult to literature. The worst book I have ever read in my life bar one. However, I suppose this might be a useful read for aspiring authors to see what not to do when attempting to create an interesting and enjoyable story.
