I have to say, though, I had expected to see more brutal, crude and extreme depiction of life fitting the time when man were yet to have any civilization. But the whole depiction of life here is rather tame and I would say the
characters' behaviour are extremely too civilized for the period. The romance is of the nature you find in any other historical romance novel.
The beginning of the book is quite engaging. It drags a lot in the middle with lengthy narrative of hunting, initiation and mating rituals (nothing graphic, though). Then it picks up towards the end.
All in all a good read.
The characters are well throught out and extremely well defined.
The research is very thorough and descriptions of the terrain, flora and fauna is amazing. I''ve heard fighting stallions scream and her description was so real I can still hear them ringing in my ears. And while I; and no other living person, has heard a mammoth trumpeted out a challenge or scream in fear and pain, I can almost hear them if I close my eyes and concentrate.
I look forward to the next two books and most sincerely recommend this great series to any one old enough to understand it.
After reading it, I bought the other books in the series, I didn't enjoy them as much. The timelines advance by a generation or two, so it's hard to figure out the relationship to the characters in this book. However, this would allow the books to be read out of order without losing the plot to the individual stories.
I plan on going back to reread these to see if maybe I just read them too fast in the first place.
I would recommend this as good reading.
