Reviews

"There is drama here--probably the greatest drama and the greatest puzzle of our history: the nature, the phenomenon, of the extinction of Neandertal man. This is in every respect an extraordinary novel. Stephen Jay Gould, a Harvard scientist and scientific historian, contributes and appreciative and most useful introduction."--"The New Yorker

I bought this book after reading it was supposed to be better than the Jean M. Aule series. I personally don't think it is.
It was an interesting read but one could not get "into" the characters and I found it puzzling that the author decided that the "white" people spoke in the way he represented. Whether he thought that it would help make them seem gentler, I don't know. I did like his explanation on why the Neanderthal peoples disappeared, I really hope that is what happened because I do think they were a gentler type of human.
If you are at all interested in pre-history and what happened to the Neanderthal I would say give it a go but I learnt more from the Clan of the Cave Bear Series.
