5.0 out of 5 stars Sparkling and gripping, 18 Jan. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: The Clan of the Cave Bear (Earth's Children) (Paperback)
I bought this book after walking into my local bookshop and reading the back cover. I needed a new book to read and this story seemed original and different to the normal books I read. After only one chapter I knew this was a book and a series that I was going to enjoy. After loosing her parents and the rest of her people in a earthquake and nearly dying on the open steeps during the Ice Age, Ayla finds herself among a clan of Neanderthal people who, after much debating, agree to adopt her into their clan. Ayla is a Cro-Magnon child and right from the start her difference to those in her new adopted "family", like her desire to hunt with the men of the Clan, causes her to get into trouble. She has to overcome language, custom and culture differences to try to blend in with the Clan. However it is the hatred of Broud, the Clans future leader, that provides Ayla with the biggest challenge of her young life. Jean M Auel provides such a detailed world that it is obvious how much time she has spent researching into this particular age of history to make her world believable. Her characters are detailed and complex and every modern young woman can identify with some of the restraints and authority Ayla has to deal with. The story grips you from the first page and with so many twists and turns throughout the book it is hard to put it down. This book is the start of a terrific series, which will sparkle and shine for many readers for many years.
