When I received this book through the post my first instinct was that it wasn't a book I'd enjoy and knowing me, I'd probably put it down never to touch it or read it ever again. Well that's what judging the front cover does! Considering my rating you have probably realised that my first instinct wasn't my best instinct I've ever had. I fully enjoyed this book, and I SHALL be reading the next few books in the series, I shall also be watching the film, and since no one has reviewed it yet, I might just decide to review it. Jean M. Auel is an author I have never ever heard of, and even though she wrote this book way back in 1980 (13 years before I was born). She ... Read the complete review

I seem to have been the only person in my peer group who did not read clan of the cave bear- and indeed the entire Earth’s Children series of book when I was around 15. When visiting the prehistoric caves in the Southern France area last summer, I took an interest in prehistoric things- and discovered a lot more about the early people of earth than I had ever known. I visited a site, near to Lascaux, where the famous cave paintings are, which was a Neanderthal settlement where there had been both Neanderthals and bears buried in the same site. I then heard that the relationship between bears and prehistoric settlements was relatively well documented and that, this Read the complete review

"The only good way to make good money from archaeology is to bluff your way to becoming a professor. The only way to make vast amounts of money from it is to write The Clan of the Cave Bear". Paul Bahn in Bluff your way in archaeology, page 14. This is not going to be an easy review to write. Having just today completed "the clan of the cave bear" for the second time (the first being when I was in school), I am in the midst of that feeling you get from just having read something truly special and amazing. How could I possibly do this book justice? I don't know if I will ever be able to manage this, but I am going to attempt to ... Read the complete review

This book is the first of the celebrated Earth's Children series by Jean M Auel. It is set at the dawn of mankind when the world was very different. I got this book from a charity shop for 50p but it is available from Amazon from £3 new and 1p used. This book has also been made into a film. Plot The book begins with Ayla playing in a river when an earthquake separates her from her family. She becomes more and more lost as she runs into the forest to avoid the tremors until she collapses from exhaustion. Once she recovers she doggedly follows the river trying to find her family. As hunger takes over and she becomes delirious, she unexpectedly ... Read the complete review

Originally released in 1980 this book has stood the test of time, I discovered it in my teenage years as I started to go through my dad's excessive book collection (I grew up with two very over protective parents and no T.V "as it rots your brain", as much as I resented it back then it clearly did some good as me and my brothers are far from stupid and all enjoy reading). And I found this book incredibly moving (even though it has a rather adult nature with rape, sex, sexual discrimination, child birth and death in it), and have gone on to read it countless times! Its part of a planned series (Earth's Children) spanning over six books, however only the first ... Read the complete review
