heheheha

Of course you sre objectively right to point this out, but subjectively who knows, who knewed, who shall knoweth; all is absurd. I have those Auel books on my TBR pile and one does show a mammoth on the front cover.
Happy Fridays to you and yours.

Believe me, I read them all years ago and they are not worth wasting your time!!!! I just donated them to Goodwill. Especially the second one goes on and on about nothing. Better to read Dewey the library cat!




message 3: by Barbara (new)

Barbara I utterly agree. Can't imagine why they are popular.............



message 4: by Werner (new)

Werner I agree that Auel's books are not "animal themed." She depicts some pet animals that play significant roles at times, and humans hunting animals (and vice versa) is a frequent and important occurrence; but the plots are basically about the people, not the animals.

Personally, I rather like most of the series (and my wife loves it!), though I recognize that it has flaws. Auel's determination to impart every fact she knows about Ice Age life often degenerates into what amount to natural history lectures, and her penchant for explicit sex isn't a plus (though those scenes can be skipped over). But Ayla is one of the most admirable female characters in modern literature; and Auel is very good at depicting social dynamics and interpersonal relations. Even though she's an evolutionist, she portrays Neanderthals as fully human (not as the "ape-men" who appear in, for instance, Doyle's and London's prehistoric fiction); and she has good, serious messages about racial and gender prejudice --which are relevant today, not just in the Stone Age setting. The quality of her research is genuinely impressive; and when she's not in lecture mode, she can tell fascinating stories. So, there is some wheat there, along with the chaff!

Mmars I've just given "The Whale Rider" 1 star, some thing I rarely do. If you're considering giving a child this book to read, please at least peek at what I've written. Thanks.
