Great book for 3rd in Series. Characters rich and well thought out by writer. References to plant life/usage on the mark. Animal descriptions as accurate as I've ever seen. Geographical/topical detail in minutae. Ms Auel is often redundant with prior story background and descriptions of locals and plantlife, but above all the reading is still great. This series of books would make a great collection for a personal library so it could be read again and/or shared with others.

So so I guess...

If this the first in the series you read you may like it, but it was the third for me. I found myself literally skipping over multitude of pages. It is like the author was looking for "filler" to 'make' a book. The descriptions of the environment, the animals, the feelings, the plants, the flint carving, everything went too far. Drama drama drama. I didn't like it much but had already paid for it, so I skimmed it. Don't spend money on it; go to a library and check it out for free.

    multiple typos

    I cant believe almost EVERY page had typos to include special characters instead of letters... names switched which was confusing... what a mess... i recommend just reading it hard copy its not worth the frustration of reading it on your Nook!

    One Star Only Because There Were No Lesser Options

    Humping and horticulture. Big schwanzes and berries while drying meat for freezing winters. Okay, that's the story. Ms. Auel really betrayed two great characters, Ayla and Jondalar, from the first two wonderful books in this series, Clan of the Cave Bear and Valley of the Horses, and went somewhere I had no desire to go. Books 4-6 are even worse.
