This is not a book I would normally read but picking it up sent me on a wonderful journey. I couldnt put it down and wanted to read whenever I could. I have read the entire series and i waited i think 9 years to finally read the last book. A wonderful story of a young girl struggling to find herself in primitive times. Fantastic...i recommend to any avid reader. I will also call my next baby if a girl ayla!!!!
Magnificent. Such a beatifully written story of survival, acceptance, and life 30,000 years ago. I could not put this book down and was compelled to read to learn of Ayla's ordeals, adventures and hardships. The story is beautifully written and plays with all your emotions. The author has taken a great deal of care and patience in her story telling - I found myself feeling all the emotions of the characters - the anger, the frustration, the crying and the fears. You need to have the entire 'Earth's Children' series at hand because you will not be able to wait to begin the next part of Ayla's adventures.
A woman who is smarter than your average neanderthal or even other clan member helps out.
A garden variety prehistoric romance if there is such, just rather long. Smart girl looks for smart bloke, tries to overcome the nogoodniks, and keep everything going along and not collapsing. Has a few bright ideas for stuff along the way.
I enjoyed reading this book and others in the series but I do find it hard at times to stay focused with the long narratives which are used to describe every little detail possible. I like books that are quick to read and that have a lot of dialogue and this is certain isn't one of those. But it is a good book and I will continue to read any new books in the Earth Children series.
I found this book fairly hard to continue reading. It is an interesting portrayal of the lives of prehistoric peoples but I found that the story seemed to lose it's way and wallow in parts. This is an extremely popular series but may only be attractive to those with an interest in this type of book generally. I do not normally read these books and whilst this was interesting to begin with, I did not become involved sufficiently to finish the story.
a wonderful and very clever and imaginative book, it follows Ayla a young girl who is seperated from her family by an earthquake and ends up with the the last of the old people, she is very different from this old race and only an old medicine woman keeps her alive, really clever, very interesting, see old rituals and believes, hunts and magic, it may not seem like much, but this is one of the best books i have read, lots of culture and action, just read it and you will see. the start of a great series of books
This was a terrific book! I adored it, I really fell in love with Ayla and it is also a very imformative book. Some bits can be a bit tedious but it was still very kewl. Ayla's parents are killed in an earthquake and she is saved my neanderthals who have never seen one of the 'others' up close.
This was a fantastic book. The first book in the Earth's Children series written by the fantastic Auel is truly a classic. The book is based around ayla who at the beginging of the book is found lost and on the edge of death after the death of her parents in an earthquakes. The same earth quake also caused the destruction of her resuers cave. Neanderthals..
