The author also recognises how to properly use the setting as a tool to drive the plot. A little time is spent in the beginning admiring and appreciating the beauty of the setting, but later the environment itself drives the plot by presenting the characters with the obstacles they must overcome. Instead of time being spent on describing in painstaking detail how a character might forage for food or treat a hide, these details are only presented when they are relevant and have purpose; when there is something to aim at or achieve that these details form the solution for. This is the way such historical settings should appear in a book, instead of being plonked down in great big info dumps with no relevance to the plot whatsoever.
The final point was that, for my opinion, the dialogue just felt a little lacking and formulaic. Together, this slight deficiency in characters, plot, and dialogue left me with a visceral sense that the story could’ve been better – but, I stress, the author tries to avert these issues, and overall the story was a fun and enjoyable read.
Nor were men as clearly dominant as this kind of book pretends. Women's authority through being the main food providers, the makers of tools, the childbearers, was considerable. Old women especially were valued ad sources of wisdom. This book clings to an outdated stereotype.
However if you don't mind it being totally inaccurate about women and men, this is a good adventure with an imaginative view of Neanderthals.
It has gripped me from the very first sentence to the last.
I loved every minute and the images the story evokes in my minds eye is better than any blockbuster at the pictures...
Thank you Kevin and I'm already looking forward to this next down load of another book of yours.
Fantastic reading again......
I thoroughly enjoyed the book and the writing style. I will definitely look for more of Kevin Ashman's books

This is not a typical Kevin Ashman book. I was surprised to find it about Neanderthals. It is a thoroughly good read.Published on 10 April 2014 by pixiestix

. . . Well written and constantly moving. Characters you can warm to, although a little too good to be true. Read morePublished on 24 Jan. 2014 by Fez
