Jean Auel's books

I read these a while ago and loved them. Such a wonderful idea and so well researched.

However was anyone else bitterly disappointed with the last book?

I was expecting so much, perhaps a reunion with her old clan and her son, perhaps she would pave the way for acceptance of the clan people, maybe show everyone how to tame and ride horses, and the revelation that it was MEN that created children.. well that lead nowhere either. I found it all very trivial, with the main characters yet again falling out with and hurting each other.

Gosh I was so upset with it that I never finished it. :/ My husband thought it was so funny because I sulked for days over it :lol:

Well, I wouldn't say the research was all that good, and the world was not at all the way she presented it, nor, certainly, was human language.


I liked first book, but found them completely unreadable after second.

Well, as one who was there at the time, James, I guess you would know... :D

Definitely not scholarship-supported interpretations on her part. She took a lot of liberties in order to make her tale accessible as an ' airport read'. Not terribly original in concept, either. No less than William Golding had already explored the theme in 'The Inheritors' (written twenty yrs earlier) and he had done so very robustly.

Auel's works were simply light, fun, mass-market reads intriguing to many for the freshness of the setting. There's nothing really wrong with them as long as one remembers that they're not meant to be regarded very seriously. Just enjoyable, and *slightly* thought-provoking escapism.

Sadly, they've recently become easy targets for the despicable, always-looking-for-suspects, pc-police.
