This is the dullest book out of the series, but necessary if you want to understand everything that happens in the next book. They travel, they have sex, and they scare villagers witness who mistake them for gods or spirits. In between, there are extended lessons in prehistoric anthropology and geology. Seems like the publisher didn't bother to spellcheck when this series was converted into eBook format. It's full of typos.

I just finished re-reading Jean Auel's Earth's Children series 1-4 again!! Once I start one I can't put it down until I finish them all. Jean Auel makes Ayla and Jondalar seem so real that I truly miss them when I finish 'The Plains of Passage'. When will books 5 and 6 be coming out? I can't wait to see what happens next. 'The Clan of the Cave Bear', 'The Valley of Horses', 'The Mammoth Hunters', and 'The Plains of Passage' are excellent and I would (and have) recommend them to anyone.

This has always been one of my favorite series - as a bookseller, I highly recommend it. The books are all very long and highly detailed - which is great if you like your books to take a while to get through. All about the history of humanity during the ice age - has really opened my mind.

I really liked the first three books in the Earth's Children series, but I found Plains of Passage tedious and boring. The author focuses too much on prehistoric geography and biodiversity. Just tell the story already and stop regurgitating your research! I got so tired of her stepping out of her storytelling shoes and into her lecture on the history of the ice age shoes that I eventually just gave up and stopped reading. Very, very disappointing!

I have read all four books in this series several times. The Clan of the Cave Bears, The Valley of Horses, The Mammoth Hunters, and The Plains of Passage. The stories are extremely close to what the Planet environment was at that time. Being an avid reader, these books have captivated my imagination like very few books have. I am waiting patiently for the next books in the series to be published. When I hear that the book is out,I will be on the way to the book store. Outstanding storytelling. I recommend reading the books in the order they were written. Read them all!!

I love the description of the natural world around the two main characters and their continually developing relationship. What bothers me is the endless, drawn-out rehashing of information we already know. I don't need Ayla's relationship and history with Whinny explained to me sixteen times.

I've read all of the nook versions of the Earth's Children books & they all have many typos, but this book has the MOST! In some cases if I didn't have the book to refer to, I wouldn't be able to guess the the misspelled word. I hope that the book coming out this month doesn't have the same problem. I am trying to decide if I should skip the nook version & go for the book itself. I give five stars in memory of the book. I give one for the nook version because my hands didn't turn black from the ink from my old books.

Ms. Auel, please. In the future, if you are going to sign a writing contract, only do it for two books. It seems that you gave up after the first two books, which were among the best books that I have ever read.

The entire book is a series of descriptions of the main characters "making pleasures" and the history and biology of every plant and animal they come across including anthropological explainations of how cave dwellers used each item. It's a study in boredom.

I really enjoyed this book and actually became a bit wiser due to it.

Jean Auel's books are books are a joy to read. I read the books over and over again. I only wish I could find out when books five and six will be put in print. I have been waiting for the seaquel's to the Earth's Children's series ever since the fourth book came out. I hope to find out soon .

The Plains of Passage was a fun and interesting read. I have thoroughly enjoyed the series and feel my education on earth science has much improved at the same time. Can't wait to read Book five, so I think I will start now.

I love the story but the author adds far too much detail about the time and setting. She goes on and on about random details; the main characters have sex & the detailed descriptions go on for 7 pages. I skip multiple pages while reading because they really have little to do with the actual plot!

These books are getting progressively worse and worse. What's the deal with the sex? The sex scenes are longer than the relevant plot points. This entire boom was just walking and sex, walking and sex.
