I love Jean Auel's books! Though she's not the most talented writer (I get the feeling there was a lot of time between writing sessions- she goes to a lot of trouble to say things she said numerous times before as if the reader is unable to remember something that happened just a few pages ago), her storyline is engrossing and her research into her subject is commendable. I had difficulty putting the book down despite the little annoyances of rereading the reason for this or that. Anybody wanting to read these novels should definitely read them in order, however. Though Auel will remind you again and again why Ayla does this or that as an adult, it makes a big difference experiencing it from the child Ayla's perspective in Clan of the Cave Bear. Happy reading!

This is one of my favorite series and this book is just wonderful! Although, even after reading it a 2nd time and more than ten years later, I still find Jondalar a whiner and he can really annoy me. However, Ayla is such an amazing heroine that it makes it all worth it!

Simultaneously interesting and disappointing. Auel has thought of an original storyline but doesn't seem to put as much effort into the sequels as she did the first. The storyline is generally repetitive, which makes it tedious to read until something interesting happens - and it does, eventually. If you are fond of romances, or don't have the time to finish a book quickly, you may find the repetition enjoyable or helpful. You certainly won't get lost if you decide to begin in the middle of the series.
