I envy all those people who haven't yet read this book!, December 25, 2005
Reviewer: Anand Murugappan "Anand" (Atlanta, GA USA)

This was a book I picked up at my college library simply because there was no other book available. As is obvious I was least interested and was not even sure I wanted to finish reading the book. Fate it seems is not without a sense of irony - I simply fell in love with it and have been craving for more. I finished reading the book in no time even though it was exam time. This book is very atypical. You are to expect the unexpected. The story is set in prehistoric times - at the times of the last Neanderthal man. The book takes you through the life of a confident (or arrogant) warrior who braves the odds to save his pride and loved ones by migrating to the north to join his long lost part of his tribe. The description of the wild landscape and magic conjured is beautiful.

If you like myths and love to be lost in nature long before the smallheads (read as modern man) destroyed it this is the book for you.

Thanks to Attanasio for such great work!

I am a big fan of Attanasio, but this is probably only for completists or those with an interest in paleo-historical novels (i.e.., Gear & Gear or Auel).
