Any jean auel fans here?
I never read her. Clan of the Cave Bear?
Brilliant series. You HAVE to read it.
@Rika I have enjoyed it.it can be a tedious read for some
Yes the series.Its set in the caveman days
Clan of the Cave Bear came out when I was in high school and I read it then and was absolutely enthralled and loved every second of it. I also loved the second one and then thought the third one was terrible and wasn’t crazy about the fourth one and then kind of gave up. This past year I reread Clan of the Cave Bear and honestly it did not stand the test of time for me I thought it was boring and a tedious read
They can be slow.ive really hoped there would be another in the series to get ayla back to her son.but I definitely understand your feeling
Lot of tedious detail for sure.i guess the love of the character gets me thru them
I have read them all, though I thought they went seriously down hill after the second book. Too much soap opera and not enough story.
@Dan agreed.The first 2 were the best
Yes, sort of. Loved the Clan of the Cave Bear but the series diminished in quality as it continued
They did give me an idea what I wanted to do after the apocalypse.
I love the idea of traveling, a la Ayla and Jondalar, from village to village, spreading knowledge and culture. They did it in the prehistory. I want to do it in the post-history.
I liked the first three. After that, the quality suffered and I didn’t like them.I could barely finish the last one.
Yes yes yes… wonderful series.
The first 3 are my favorite, the last one is OK but it doesn’t seem to have the same flow as her others imo.
I want to name my baby Ayla. Ha.
I have seen the name several times on here and figured it came from the book lol it’s pretty
I loved them but I agree with most everyone, the last book wasn’t as good as the others. I do think the last book describes how culture may have developed from a hunter/gatherer Goddess worship society to a patriarchal, city/commerce based community.
I didn’t care much for the last book either but I loved all the others.
I’ve read her books. My mom met her once (At a week-long camping event where she was doing research. Her RV was parked next to my parents) I liked most of her books. I’m not a huge fan of her last one. It felt too forced.
Oh Yes loved her series!
