Quello che Ayla e Giondalar stanno per intraprendere è un viaggio che nessuno ha mai tentato: attraversare le sconfinate pianure dell'Europa dell'Era glaciale. Oltre quelle lande desolate, abitate da popoli selvaggi e animali feroci, solcate da fiumi tumultuosi, segnate da imponenti montagne e immani ghiacciai, li attende, forse, il luogo della dimora definitiva. Riusciranno a giungervi'

During the Ice Age when temperatures plummeted and the two human races a few scattered nomads, desperately struggled to survive the big freeze, in future Europe there was no love lost between them. Competition may be fun in sports and other contests of muscle or brain, but slow starvation is no joy, Leggi tutto
Summary: Ayla and Jondalar travel to his homeland. Oh, you wanted me to be a bit more specific? Okay. Summary: Ayla and Jondalar head out to his homeland (because while Ayla is supposed to sacrifice her newfound family, the Mamutoi, Jondalar can whine and complain to get what he wants). They stumble u Leggi tutto
Normally I don’t bother with reviews but I decided this time I would. I give this book 4 stars because despite so much repetition it was still a good read and I am eagerly getting to the next one. After I read the last book and read some quite funny reviews about how often things were mentioned (lik Leggi tutto
This is the beginning of the decline in the series for me. My favorite book in the series is the Mammoth Hunters and I consider it the apex of the series. This is a good story as they are traveling through the world back to France and spreading all this new knowledge to people. There were several tim Leggi tutto
4 STARS Another fabulous saga from Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children series. I’m really enjoying my trek across ancient Europe with Ayla and Jondalar, long as it may be. And I never dreamed I’d learn so much about glaciers! Even though a good bit of this story took place between Ayla and Jondalar, alone a Leggi tutto
Okay, good. I liked this one slightly better than the last one. Ayla and Jondalar have kissed and made up and are on their way back to his home in Zelandonii. They meet some people, have some laughs, do it in the bushes, and show everyone they meet how awesome they are. Also Ayla's superwoman transf Leggi tutto
I'm still at the very, very beginning of the book, but see that one little star? That's because the book essentially opens with an extremely graphic mammoth sex scene. Oh, Jean...what am I going to do with you?
I get it. The struggle of the longest journey. The challenge came once I read it for the 3rd time... yes I love the series that much....then I realized I had to skip over 10 chapters, #13 - #23 as I flipped and scanned it was all a tedious and meticulous description of the landscape. The same animal Leggi tutto
The more books are published in this series, the less magical the life of Ayla and Jondalar becomes to me. First of all I have the feeling that whole text passages are just 'copy-pasted' from (a) previous book(s) into this one, because in my opinion there is a lot of repetition. These books are quit Leggi tutto
Next in my reread of this series, and this is where I intended to stop. I think I will go on with Shelters of Stone though, because I just don't feel done yet. I will have to see how I feel about the final, dreaded book though. I loved this one again, even if it is the 'travel' book. Jean has a tende Leggi tutto
