Second time I have read this book. I'm a fan of prehistoric fiction. I have yet to find another prehistoric fiction that comes close to Jean Auel's books. Lots of environmental details. The only reason I did not give 5 stars are the never ending 'streamy'. Once or twice OK. But not in details in every chapter. Highly recommend that one has read the first 2 books of the series before reading the Mammouth Hunters.
I love this series!
This is a great book and am happy with the app so far. I takes me forever to read a book if I get the time. This app lets me enjoy my favorite stories still.
I love this series! I am named after this series!
This book continues the story and has great character development and story line, although it gets tedious at times.
love this series I learn so much. So much information on how early man dressed, food,and other cultural ideas
Always loved Jean Auel, been reading her since I was 14.
I was drawn in from the 1st line and I couldn't stop until I was finished, which took a while since this is a very long book. This book is much better to listen to, than to read it. At times I got so mad a the main characters that I wished I could climb into the CD player and beat their heads together. The story gripped me totally.
I am eager to read the next one! Auel has incorporated history and I feel that I am a part of the story. My heart was wanting to jump in and help Ayla with communication. What a story for us all. Not only was it worth the listen, but in the end I have gleaned more about the history of civilizations and witnessed their differences and simularities. The narrator is awesome.
Who knew cavemen could be so witty and urbane? Really, I enjoy the whole series and appreciate all the research Auel has done. It is a fun story to drive with. My only complaint would be the icky love scenes which follow the romance novel formula, but it is nothing that a few clicks of the fast forward button can't fix.
"Jean M. Auel is an international phenomenon. Her books have sold 34 million copies worldwide. Her extensive research has earned her the respect of archaeologists and anthropologists around the world. She lives with her husband, Ray, in Oregon, where she is at work on the next book in the Earth's Children? series."
