Have not read this book yet, but laand very disappointed with The Shelters of Stone. This book didn’t have any of that. I have never, ever seen an author turn on their protagonist in such a blatant and hostile way. Endless recapping of past events, repetition of the mother’s song, and mind numbing details about cave after cave after cave.

That by the end of it, she hates this wonderful character she created and wants nothing more to do with her and lost the will to help Ayla become what we all thought she would. I could go on The man is the child’s far-mother or fa-ther.

What is that Big Reveal, you ask? He has his painter out-of-character moments. Has no one heard of control? My advice is to save a tree and go for the Kindle edition. Have read them all, more than once to tell the truth!

And pagewhen Jondular attacks Laramar. I want my money back. E tra le figlie di Uwa vi furono anche altre vergini madre che misero alla luce uomini famosi. Mar 31, Teri Pre rated it did not like it Shelves: The repetition in this book! This really wasnt the best way to end the series.

Sometimes more than once. View all 3 comments. They look at more paintings. The conclusion is mournful and an insult to fans. Other than finding out what happens to Ayla, Jondalar and Family, this was a terribly written book.

Pages to import images to Wikidata. The setting was rich and detailed.

But with an audiobook, I was stuck listening over and over again, poking sharp objects in my eyes just to pass the time for it to end. We see Ayla’s journey towards life in the Zelandonia and the consequences that this causes, which many of us can empathise with. But, the worst is one thing I hate in books along with love triangles happens: Wow, was I ever disappointed.

I loved the silly banter between the people that introduced Ayla to a sense of humor and laughing. Ayla nearly dies, and is called back to life by a contrite and suddenly passionately loving Jondalar. She tames the first horse, and then gets all uppity and tames the first cat in fact, the first Cave Lion.

Telling about people and animals’ bodily functions is not a detail needed for realism. Would this not be an exacting and exhausting task? The third part of the book contains most of the action of the story and plot line. That happens to every writer me included. And I could go on. Apr 04, Jdan rated it did not like it.

I could never have imagined that sex rites, orgies and drug-taking could seem like so little fun or be surrounded by so many rules and rituals. So much time apart from Jondalar has caused him to drift away from her. The narrative of this book, the underlying tone, makes it very clear that Ms. They are faced with new challenges, not just the ordinary trials of sheer survival, but the complications posed by many groups of people who need to live and work together.


The Land of Painted Caves

See, as long as Ayla is struggling to adapt and survive, the story is fascinating. They look at paintings in the caves.

This leaves a rift between Ayla and Jondalar. I actually got pretty excited at that prospect, it sounded like it could be a significant event in the lives of these people, something that might make a good plot point.

She and what’s-his-name have another breakup. These caves are filled with remarkable art–paintings of mammoths, lions, aurochs, rhinoceros, reindeer, bison, bear.

Trivia About The Land of Paint She deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic, and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today. As though Auel realised toward the end what a stinking pile of shit this book is, she decided to revive it quel making Ayla carry out what consists of an intentional suicide attempt by trying out the Clan roots used by the Clan Mog-urs – and drinking nearly the entire lanx of the bowl, after letting Zelandoni have the paiinted of sips.

She didn’t even apply some of the artwork to the Zelandoni characthers or story line. If we need to refer ba I, unfortunately and with great sadness, have to give this book 1 star. But of course it is! I adored this whole series up until the last two.
