Jean Auel has painted a picture for us of prehistoric times and done so in such a way that makes you feel liked you lived in those times.

The first book was my favorite and I can't wait to compare the book to movie.

This is to say that the five books of the earth's children series is fantastic. Jean explores and annunciates the splendor of the ice age times. As you read you are drawn to the majesty of the people, the animals, and the landscape. You feel the breeze on your face as they do.
The only thing lacking in in the series is the sixth book which i have been waiting for and can not find any information about when it will come out. Also would have been nice to have had a another movie made of the series such as combining valley of the horses and the mammoth hunters together. But thats just my take on it.

Format: Paperback
This is the ongoing fictional saga of a woman who bridged two cultures, the Cro-Magnon and the Neanderthal. Within its storyline, it provides hypothetical explainations for such earth shattering events as, flint/pyrite firestarting, clay kiln firing, soap lye, and the domestication of animals. It provides a well researched study of herbal lore and natural medicine. All of this, melding to encapsulate the reader and propel him 30,000 years into the human races past.

I loved the first one, then I liked the second one very much, the third one was ok, and then I began to loose interest, until I did not even finish The Painted Caves.

For me, Ayla is the most compellingly "human" heroine I've ever known.

I'm currently re-reading the sixth and final book, "Land of the Painted Caves" for the second time.

I've read the previous 5 three times each. Great storytelling! It's sad to know that this saga has finally come to an end.

Each book flows into the next. Auel kindly worked in information from the previous books to remind us...or if you missed the previous books, to inform you...of details surrounding 'current' events. These books are a wonderful escape from every day life...and you learn so much while enjoying the fascinating journeys Ayla always finds herself embarking on!

Jean Auel is one in a million as writers go. She has done so much research on the time period that others would not have 'bothered' with. A very intelligent person who was able to create a wonderful story wrapped in the setting of 20 to 30 thousand years ago. She also brings in the lessons of now days, how even then people were very unkind to persons 'not like them'. Her knowledge of plants and herbs for both medicinal and foods as well as flavoring was wonderful. She is, in my opinion, the very best author I've ever read, and puts such human interactions with her 'players', as well as making them very human, having fear, love, hate as well as joy. I've read all 6 of her books for the fourth time, and although the 4th wasn't as good a story for my taste, I'd give her all the stars available. If she doesn't write another (although not a continuation of Earth's Children Series), I'll just have to read them all again !!!

Thank you, Jean Auel for your wonderful contribution. You are my favorite!

Sincerely,

Jeanette Snead

My daughter and I both read this series and really enjoyed it. We plan on watching the movie next.
The first book was my favorite and I can't wait to compare the book to movie.
We both highly reccomend this series if you want to learn about cave men and hunter gatherer cross period.
