    5 STARSWow These books are good Now I’m beginning to see how they became such a craze back in the eighties It boggles the mind how much research and simple creative story telling the author has pulled together to make this epic story come to life And yes it is a love storyMy only complaint is the length The author occasionally goes a bit overboard with her descriptive explanations of tool making and hide curing etc etc etc Ve

    I have a huge Love hate relationship with these books The author repeats herself over and over again; she treats the reader like they're stupid and cannot remember a thing In fact I believe any good editor could cut these books down by hundreds of pages Yet this series is addicting The first one is by far the best but be prepared to be sucked in if you read the first you will want to read them all

    This book could have been much shorter and I probably would have enjoyed it Is she getting paid per word? ha The characters became weak and aggravating their silly storylines were drawn on for far too long Still it was somewhat enjoyable but I don't know if I want to continue reading this series I'm taking a break ha

SUMMARY ☆ E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Jean M. Auel

At he tries to control by avoiding herThroughout the icy winter the tension mounts but warming weather will bring the great mammoth hunt and the mating rituals of the Summer Meeting when Ayla must choose to remain with Ranec and the Mamutoi or to follow Jondalar on a long journey into an unknown futureThird in the acclaimed Earth’s Children® series. The short rundownA page turner as in Pedantic description turn page Tell not show turn page Angst and angst turn page Repeat history telling again and again and turn page Describe all actions in minute detail turn page Another long description of pleasures turn pagesThe longer rundownAll actions must be described in mind numbing detail Ditto descriptions feelings etc AND then repeated later Does anyone actually read these stories word by word by word or do they like me skim large angstdescription ridden sections And that takes up a lot of the bookI hear often that authors should show not tell and after reading this book glazing over and page turning past large sections of telling often repeating what has been told before I fully appreciate that advice We did not need to be told about things that were not relevant to the story An example Telling how wolves would be selected for pets because they had different features to the norm Smaller a different colour etc Yes eventually becoming pet dogs of different breeds but telling this as part of the story was unnecessary because it is NOT part of this storyThe magical colds are back again The tribe meets no one but they catch colds Obviously the people in Ayla s time did not need to catch a virus Their colds are magic spells brought by evil spirits or something Someone please tell the author a cold is caused by a virus and they need to catch the virus from another person who has it or carries it The tribe doesn t meet anyone else to catch it fromAyla and Jondalar not talking about their feelings to each other for months each thinking the other doesn t love them Please spare me so unbelievable and corny and overdoneThis is the third book in this series I have read I really would like to follow Ayla s journey across prehistoric Europe but with the extreme overwriting and the author s habit of telling rather than showing I don t think I can face another of her books This book is just short of 800 pages but the story could have been told in 200 pages and been far the better for it

CHARACTERS The Mammoth Hunters

The Mammoth Hunters

Once again Jean M Auel opens the door of a time long past to reveal an age of wonder and danger at the dawn of the modern human raceRiding Whinney with Jondalar the man she loves and followed by the mare’s colt Ayla ventures into the land of the Mamutoi the Mammoth Hunters She has finally found the Others she has been seeking Though Ayla must learn. WARNING This book has caused me a lot of heartache and as I review it I may end up in a ball of mush blathering unintelligiblyWhen we last left Ayla and Jondalar they were returning to Jondalar s family standing smiling as they met one of the Mamutoi Now Ayla is uivering in fear afraid that this Other is going to see her and immediately know somehow that she lived with the Clan and hate her this is only 1 of the many continuity conflicts in this story Jondalar being the perfect perfectness of perfect maleness You do know after all that Jondalar is The Mother s Gift to Women assures her that the Mamutoi are good people and the two hang out with the MamutoiBefore I start my ranting I need to say the good things about this book or I will completely forget them and start censoring profanities Firstly Auel opens up her world and introduces us to the Mamutoi and their ways describing different cultures digging into the past and revealing it to the audience is Auel s strong suit and it s nice to have her back in her element At points I was almost transported back to The Clan of the Cave Bear learning how the Mamutoi hunt make clothes and go about their day to day lives getting a peak into their religion learning their social structureThe plotline with Rydag was actually not that bad It gave Ayla a way to see what her child might have been like to explore the motherliness of her character And finally there are a lot 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 My favorite was Ranec he was such a jolly guy so friendly outgoing clever witty and smart It would have been interesting to see tries to breath slowly what would have happened if he had ended up with Ayla I liked Deejee Ayla hasn t had a chance to interact with many females so it was great that she had a strong female friend And many of the other clan were pretty well doneNow that I ve done my duty and said all the good things about this book I can focus on the 75% of the crap that bugged the hell out of me and nearly broke meThis book has all the stuff we saw in Valley of the Horses We are treated to at least six really bad sex scenes the wording in each is almost identical the sex is uncomfortable and not sexy at all the times people have sex is really odd Auel steps away from the story to go into Textbook Mode describing concepts these people would have no knowledge of permafrost homogeneous crystalline silica or flint asides into what would happen thousands of years later etc Ayla invents the needle domesticates a Wolf cub possesses shamanic powers that the Mamut spiritual leader of the Mamutoi encourages her to use to see visions and generally grows to be an even bigger Mary Sue than even the first two books made her out to be and that is a feat lemme tell youBut none of those elements really compare to the most horrible thing that nearly destroyed all the good things this book had going for it What did the most destruction to the goodness of this book was one of the absolute stupidest most inane childish disgusting vapid retarded Big Misunderstandings in the world of Big MisunderstandingsI can live with the info dumping even if it is terribly boring distracting to the plot and way above the knowledge of the characters I can even enjoy the really bad sex scenes in a MST3K way if you enjoy reading about Jondalar s manhood and Ayla s petals this is your book But when an author resorts to having her characters act like lobotomized chimpanzees in order to drive a plot that should have been wrapped up in no than a chapter and probably like a paragraphI draw the lineAfter Ayla and Jondalar meet up with the Mamutoi almost immediately Ranec wants the Perfect Majestic Mother Incarnate Ayla He eyeballs her makes constant jokes about bedding her and makes it so that generally everyone knows what he wantsWell everyone EXCEPT AYLAEventually the Mamutoi agree to adopt Ayla At her adoption ceremony Ranec kisses her and tells her he wants to bed her Ayla being raised as a Clan member to drop and spread em at a man s whim agrees Meanwhile Jondalar stands in a corner and pouts and complains and whines How could she be going with another man when he was waiting for her No woman had ever chosen someone else when he wanted her Uh Jondalar don t you remember Ayla talking about how THAT IS HOW SHE S BEEN TRAINED Oh right it was just after having sex you were asleepNormal human beings would approach each other after the incident and have it out But nooooooooooooooooooooooo Instead Ayla and Jondalar begin a painful stupid nonsensical falling out They avoid each other thinking the other doesn t care for them any They stop having really bad sex and talking about the origin of babies which was a great disappointment to me as I enjoyed counting the times in the last book that that topic appeared They sleep on opposite sides of the bed At one point they fight over Ayla s adoption of a Wolf cub cleverly named Wolf and he moves out All the while they both have googly eyes for each other lust after each other dance around talking to each otherbut never actually have the conversation that would fix this problemYou know what s even worse Yes I did say worse I MAYBE could understand this happening if they were in a vacuum But there is a whole TRIBE of people around them And you know whatTHEY DON T FRAKKIN BOTHER TO SAY ANYTHING TO THIS COUPLEAll these supposedly open and blunt Mamutoi in the previous book and even earlier in this book SUDDENLY really respect private thoughts and REFUSE TO CLARIFY A SITUATION THAT WOULD TAKE TWO SECONDS TO CLEAR UPHyperventilatesThis goes onand onand onfor the REST OF THE BOOKAnd do you want know how it is resolvedview spoilerAfter a bajillion times of saying he is going to leave Jondalar finally does Ayla is like OMGWTFBBJONDALARISGONE to Nezzie and Nezzie is like Well like jah he like totally loved you And Ayla is like OMGWTFBBJONDALARISGONE And Nezzie is like Jah he like thought you like didn t like love him And Ayla is like BUT I LUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUURVE JONDALAR And she runs off to him And she does her Clan kneeling before him And she FINALLY FRAKKIN TELLS HIM SHE LOVES HIM AND HE FINALLY FRAKKIN TELLS HER HE LOVES HERAnd you know what else YES THAT IS NOT ALL THAT S IT They f % it s the same generic cute and paste graphic sex that we ve seen the other bajillion times in this series and it s over There is no yelling no HOW DARE YOU HAVE SEX WITH RANEC no HOW DARE YOU WHORE YOURSELF OUT no BUT I THOUGHT I RAPED YOU ON THE HILLS AND YOU WERE CRYING BECAUSE I HURT YOU it s just OVERIf THAT is how you are going to end this plotWHY did you make me go through HALF THE BOOK drag this plotline out WAY past its point of believability and suffer through the AGONIZING REPETITIOUS DOES HESHE LUUUUUURVE ME hide spoiler

Their different customs and language she is adopted because of her remarkable hunting ability singular healing skills and uncanny fire making techniue She finds women friends and painful memories of the Clan she left behind and meets Ranec the dark skinned magnetic master carver of ivory whom she cannot refuse inciting Jondalar to a fierce jealousy th. I love the Earth s Children s Series by Jean Auel I will say that the last 2 books were disappointing and the 4th book was what started that going down point It is my opinion that this book the 3rd book in the series is the best book It is my favorite storyEverything that has been happening for the past 2 books comes together to make this amazing story It s a wonderful 3 book arc There is some weird love triangle stuff between Ayla Jondalar and Ranec I didn t enjoy that and I thought it was foolish but young lovers are often foolish so I forgive itJondalar and Ayla have left their happy valley heading back to Jondalar s family They meet up with another clan and they join the clan for a year or so and become part of the tribe Jondalar has discovered the throwing stick that gives better spear throwing and killing abilities and both he and Ayla bring so much to the tribe They are the star couple Everyone is amazed by the wolf and the horse and how Ayla controls themWe learn how they build their homes how they hunt and how they party Every summer they gather for a big party basically together They find mates spead learning and share community My favorite moment in the book is when Baby his cave lion she raised that is the size of a horse or is coming toward the summer gathering and the hunters want to kill it Ayla sees Baby yells at him and runs to him and hugs him Then she jumps on his back and runs off for a bit The whole village thinks she s a witch or a goddess They don t understand her That is the moment that seals this book for me I just love it Ayla and Jondalar leave the camp for his family at the end but the way the rest of the book goes I wish they would have stayed and this would be the last one This makes for a great endingI also enjoy Mamut the Shaman who teaches Ayla about being a Shaman It s really great stuffI love this book and it is the best storytelling Jean has done It s a great series a bit slow paced and the sex is graphic and so so repetitive that it gets absolutely boring The sex is a bit ridiculous She explains so much of how pre historic man lived and the plants there and there is a ton of research that goes into this and sometimes it does slow the narrative down a bit but I find it fascinating and I love it I need to do a re read of this series again someday soon It s just so good
