I spent the entire book wanting to slap the crap out of both of them, while screaming hungers talk to each other already!! Alle prijzen zijn inclusief BTW en andere heffingen en exclusief eventuele verzendkosten en servicekosten. But none of those elements really compare to the most horrible thing that nearly destroyed all the good things this book had going for it.

If you don’t think this is fucking creepy, I don’t know what to tell you.

The short, stocky woman he knew bore little resemblance to the great hulk of a man standing there on the riverbank, but they were chipped from the same flint.

So basically he’s saying “I don’t care two shits she doesn’t like me, I’ll keep bugging her til she surrenders”. Re-reading it now, I realize there really was more to it than that and Auel masterfully handles this tension in a realistic way.

Errr, dude, she just told you she’s tired. I’m slowly but surely working my way through the Earth’s Children series and this happens to be my least favorite of the bunch. It didn”t matter to him that you have no people. She’s managed to learn so much from Jondalar, but her heritage and customs from living as part of the Clan of the Cave Bear are still ingrained in her behaviour and finally meeting more ‘Others’ is both a welcome adventure and a trial once again.


Wisest of their nation is Old Mamut, their eldest shaman and the leader of the entire Mamutoi priesthood, who becomes Ayla’s mentor and colleague in the visionary and esoteric fields of thought.

I was put off Jean M. Although you know that in the end Ayla and Jondolar are going to end up back together again, you don’t really expect it to be the VERY end, and when it finally happens, it seems so rushed that it overlooks many of the “problems” the author laid out before them. She is completely unrealistic in her talents, skills, achievements, zuel attractiveness.

And finally, there are a lot more developed characters this time around–and characters that I actually liked I don’t think I cared for ANY of the characters in The Valley of Horses.

The Mammoth Hunters (Earth’s Children, #3) by Jean M. Auel

Wisest of their nation is Old Mamut, their eldest shaman and the leader of the entire Mamutoi priesthood, who becomes Ayla’s mentor and colleague in the visionary and esoteric fields of thought.

The protagonists make their home with the Lion Auek of the Mammoth Hunters, which features a number of respected Mamutoi.

For some reason, both of the main characters bothered me to some degree in this book. Ranec had given Ayla what she considered to be the ‘signal’ from the Others: Trivia About The Mammoth Hunte Does that happen in the rest of the series ever? He is a mixed child who is a blend of Clan and Mamutoi much like someone Ayla used to know, and she forms a firm attachment to this character. Which is precisely why this one got as low of a score as it did, my expectations were much higher. Ayla was not going to be easy to explain.


Auel still lives in Portland, Oregon. Isn”t that what Iza told you to do? He learned some of the Clan sign language during that stay, and became aware of the fact that the Clan are human not animals, as is the common opinion of most of his people.

It had occurred to him when he first saw A. With the colt following behind, they raced up the slope to the steppes beyond. All this brings me to the supposed “love triangle” which apparently forms the main plot of this book.
