Apesar do balanço final ser positivo, houve uma altura em que já não podia ler mais nada sobre o talento, as capacidades, a beleza, a habilidade, o carisma, a sabedoria, etc.....da Ayla. Também acho que a personagem de Ranec merecia mais atenção, pensei que ia "dar mais luta" a Jondalar. Parece-me que ele pouco faz para "prender" a Ayla, por lutar por ela. Além disso, algumas vezes achei que o livro se centrava demais nos desejos sexuais do triângulo amoroso Jondalar/Ayla/Ranec. Apesar de se fal ...more

As with all the other books, this one is long and detailed to the bitter end. I didn't like this one as much, I have to say... It was AMAZINGLY painfully so much like a damn soap opera that I had to put it down so many times and just say, "Gimme a break!!!" I wanted to reach inside this book and slap some heads. Seriously, it was worse than Days of our Lives, but in the friggin' ice age. I have a few more to read... they better not be like this one.

What is my totem? What symbol guides me in this world? What is my spiritual anchor? This novel evoked a review of my identity, spirituality, and direction (although the book mentioned destiny, i opt to use direction as this is more related with choice) from a different light.

I cried many times as I read the book. I was so absorbed with the tensions, scattered like cookie crumbs in every chapter of the book. I devoured each crumb like a grieving lone wolf. I've never seen a wolf, but the book int

Only the first book in this series is worth reading. Much of it was inappropriate, but I overlooked it because evil was portrayed as such. Also because it was a worthwhile story. Clinging to the storyline as it continued in Book 2 (Valley of Horses), I merely endured and hope the plot would get beyond sexual intercourse methods of civilized folks. (FYI, if you and/or your new spouse are looking for a good sex manual, I highly recommend Valley of Horses.)

IMHO, the entire series belongs to the ca

I feel like I have to finish this series because I do want to know what happens to the characters, a testament to the first book; however it is a bit of a drag at times, especially when the caveman porn comes into play. I really enjoy when the author describes the rituals and the landscape, I do not enjoy when the author tries to create drama with the interpersonal relationships of her characters. I wish the author understood she didn't need all of that fluff, it is a better book without it. A g ...more

HOW could this be the same author that wrote such a mesmerizing page turner the first time around?!? I was in awe and completely enveloped in Ayla's world with the first book. I shouldn't be so appalled because #2 was such a terrible flop, but #3 was a complete waste of 700 pages and more importantly, my time. This book could have been told in 50 pages or less..NOTHING happened. I'm so mad about how terrible this book was because there' are 3 more to go! I will not be wasting any m ...more

I have found that Jean Auel has been instrumental in helping me to appreciate the pre-history that pre dated our Native American tribes. In fact this book takes place, I believe, on the European continent. His fiction based on archaeological findings is presented in such a way that you never know you are learning something very important. All of Jean's books are that way and I value every one. I have tried to read every one of Jean's books and have come away with a better knowledge of history an ...more

I love Alya's story and this chapter of her life was filled with so much love and many great characters. the detail the author went into about the land and technique used for all aspects of living were very informative but at times seems almost tedious. I find way of living and concepts to be fascinating and look forward to reading more of Alya's journey.
I read the life of a woman with great talent,enduarance and patience.

I think this is the last Auel book I finished - they started to get porny and pointless...too bad, too. I enjoyed devouring the first two.
