My copy is actually a hardback, an ex-library copy, but I didn't see the need to introduce another version into the Goodreads list. I very much enjoyed the film that was shot from this, which has the same title.

The book is really good, with some really poetic writing. It's dated in places, particularly in what many modern readers would see as a very sexist ending. But overall, if you take some of the stuff tongue in cheek, it's a pretty good adventure. It's got quite a few different elements tha...more

Rien à voir avec le film de Jean-Jacques Annaud. Beaucoup mieux bien qu'étrange. Les péripéties d'un groupe d'hommes préhistoriques mené par Naoh, fils du Léopard à travers la cambrousse pour retrouver du feu, et gagner ainsi le bâton de commandement et la fille du chef, un autre groupe dirigé par Aghoo fils de l’Aurochtraques comme adversaire à la chasse au feu. Il leur faut affronter maint dangers, et découvrir ainsi l'univers sauvage et hostile de la préhistoire et de ses combats quotidiens.

Un roman d'une étonnante modernité. Non par son thème (la préhistoire comme sujet moderne, mouaif), mais par sa forme.

Parce qu'écrire un roman pareil, dans un style comme celui-ci en 1911, c'était osé.

Un très beau récit, très bien écrit, prenant et dont on ne soupçonne pas une seconde l'âge canonique (c'est assez rare pour être souligné).

I remember from my childhood in Siberia, how we were queuing up for this book (in Russian), reading the copy until the cover was unrecognisable, giving each other two days to read it. I don't know how it would read now, but back then in the 70s it was one of the brightest impressions (considering the Inquisition-like censure in literature).

Comunque dubito che nella preistoria convivessero nella stessa area leoni, tigri, rinoceronti, lupi e mammuth (ed esseri umani).

Fire good! Book.... bad.
Quest starts off with a tribe's fire. Quest over! Well, ok. The fire goes out. And the tribe must find fire. The leader pledges whoever finds fire gets the girl! So nerdboy grabs his lighter and... no! This novel tracks 3 warriors as they travel around finding the fire. They must combat lions, and tigers, and bears (Ahgoo!) Yes, Ahgoo. The hairy guy. They must not only face animals, but also different races of people - Neanderthals, Asians, Midgets, their own tribe, and e...more

A book which I would recommend to either young or old. This is no adventure, this is life, once a time.
Austin
one of the rare instances where the movie was better than the book....by far.
