  • Summary: Ayla and Jondalar travel to his homeland.Oh, you wanted me to be a bit more specific? Okay.Summary: Ayla and Jondalar head out to his homeland (because while Ayla is supposed to sacrifice her newfound family, the Mamutoi, Jondalar can whine and complain to get what he wants). They stumble upon Mammoths having sex, the Sharmudoi and the Ramudoi who almost immediately induct Ayla into their clan, a group of Femi-Nazis (aka, what many conservatives think Feminists are), a couple of Clan pe [...]

  • Normally I don’t bother with reviews but I decided this time I would. I give this book 4 stars because despite so much repetition it was still a good read and I am eagerly getting to the next one. After I read the last book and read some quite funny reviews about how often things were mentioned (like we’d forget) I decided to keep a tally list for this book for some of the most frequently mentioned things. Enjoy.7 x we are told Ayla can control whinny with her muscles in her legs.8 x we get [...]

  • 4 STARSAnother fabulous saga from Jean Auel’s Earth’s Children series. I’m really enjoying my trek across ancient Europe with Ayla and Jondalar, long as it may be. And I never dreamed I’d learn so much about glaciers! Even though a good bit of this story took place between Ayla and Jondalar, alone as they made their way back to Jondalar’s homeland, they did encounter several groups of people along the way. Some good… and some not so good. But the two managed to get even closer to eac [...]

  • Okay, good. I liked this one slightly better than the last one. Ayla and Jondalar have kissed and made up and are on their way back to his home in Zelandonii. They meet some people, have some laughs, do it in the bushes, and show everyone they meet how awesome they are. Also Ayla's superwoman transformation is complete. The girl can learn languages almost immediately, control horses and wolves, she practically invented fire, sewing needles, is a master at her weapons of choice- the sling, she ca [...]

  • I'm still at the very, very beginning of the book, but see that one little star? That's because the book essentially opens with an extremely graphic mammoth sex scene.Oh, Jeanwhat am I going to do with you?

  • I get it. The struggle of the longest journey. The challenge came once I read it for the 3rd time yes I love the series that muchen I realized I had to skip over 10 chapters, #13 - #23 as I flipped and scanned it was all a tedious and meticulous description of the landscape. The same animals that roamed the stepps, from mammoths, to horses/onagers, aurochs, deer, and mouflon, etc. I enjoyed the natural geographic studies of these sections, as I would anybut I'd already read it in the first three [...]

  • The more books are published in this series, the less magical the life of Ayla and Jondalar becomes to me. First of all I have the feeling that whole text passages are just 'copy-pasted' from (a) previous book(s) into this one, because in my opinion there is a lot of repetition. These books are quite unique, and therefore it is not neccessary to repeat so much. It is disturbing the reading process and has no use: no book (at least not one that I read or heard of) looks like these. There's no cha [...]

  • Let's start saying that I loved the first three books of this serie. They were just so lovely, and they communicated somethingey gave me that "pre-historic" vibe I don't know, they were quite charming. But I'm having serious issues with this fourth one: I'm currently half way through it and I'm not sure whether to continue it or no, as I'm not sure if I'll read the last two books (I already own 'Shelters of stone' but 'Land of Painted Caves' is still unpublished in Italy). Why?Well, let's explai [...]

  • This book should've been called How to Pleasure Your Way Across Europe, Righting Injustices Along the Way.I've been meaning to do this write-up since I finished the book (over two weeks ago), but kept putting it off.  The Plains of Passage comes in at just under 800 pages, but they're 800 pages in which nothing much happens.  It's meant to chronicle the trip Ayla and Jondalar make from Ukraine to France (on foot, across a glacier) that takes over a year.  You end up feeling like you're there [...]

  • Once again, Auel has clearly put a great deal of research into the book, furnishing her descriptions with plenty of attention to detail. However, once again, Auel takes it too far at some points, with some passages reading like they'd been lifted directly from an anthropological academic journal. I don't mind being given information about the environment in which characters move, in fact I relish it, but the way it's written, it really feels like a chopped up academic article forcibly inserted i [...]

  • A reread of this book. I always enjoy this series, and this book is probably my favorite. Ayla and Jondalar have made the decision to leave the Mamutoi and make the trip back to Jondalar's home. Along the way they meet up with several other groups of people, some good and some not. Ayla is nervous about leaving the Mamutoi, who have adopted her and given her a family of her own. But she loves Jondalar and will go with him despite her qualms. Because she was raised by "flatheads" after her own fa [...]

  • i love how the main character is so sure of herself, and what she wants in life but the repetition of what she learned in the books that came before this get a little annoying, but it doesnt happen that often in this book, so i skipped a few paragraphs.over all, in this book, the author creates a strengthened, comfortable relationship[between the main characters] with new adventures, and has that same rich-in-detail that i love so much.

  • THIS was the book that made me stop reading the Earth's Children series. Honestly, this long,painful experience seems to go in it's own basic patternStep 1: "Let's share pleasures, Jondalar!""Hellz yeah! Take a gander at those mammoths over there!"Step 2: "Let's travel a bit and spend about five pages describing this blade of grass!"Rinse and repeat, but make sure to throw in some random events for a mild amount of flavour. Also, it's in this book where I finally realized how much of a Mary Sue [...]

  • This one was a relief from the third book, The Mammoth Hunters which I found to be full of "Oh, come on!" with the love-triangle drama between Jondalar, Ayla, and Ranec.This book was enjoyable and well-paced. Some of the descriptions of the flora & fauna of that ancient world get a bit tedious but you can tell it was extensively researched. I confess to getting very curious over whether any of these medicenes and foods would really work and taste good. If ever the apocalypse came, I would gr [...]

  • Oh my God . . . the most boring book I've ever read! and i must give credit to jean auel because i read about how much work and research and time she puts into these novels and i know how accurate her descriptions are of everything . . . but she easily devotes 4 pages (atleast) to describing the terrain, the flora and fauna, the animals . . . and picture this . . . the story is about two people crossing ice age europe from one end to the other . . . and the book is 865 pages . . . the longest on [...]

  • If all the repetitions and tellings of what happened in previous books (same information told and retold several times) were cut out and the scientific explanatins of the flora, fauna, clima and culture of the Ice Age were compressed and the geografic descriptions of areas for ever changed and never to be seen were minimized this book would be half the size and twice the book. The story is compelling but there is just too much you want to skip.

  • This novel is book four in the incredible Earth's Children Series.This is a series that really must be read in order.In this book, Ayla and Jondalar are continuing their journey across a perilous prehistoric Europe. When the cross path with other people, they are held in awe, and fear, as they are the first to be seen riding a horse. As if that's not enough, Ayla is able to communicate with animals and has with her what appears to be a tame wolf, which is also unheard of.When I read this series, [...]

  • The fourth installment in Jean M. Auel's great Ice Age saga the Earth's Children series is The Plains of Passage, which tells of Ayla and Jondalar's epic journey across Europe. Aided by the horses domesticated by Ayla and her pet wolf, the duo hunt and gather their way westward. They encounter people that Jondalar met on his first journey eastward as well as meeting new people. Some of them are friendly and others are terrifyingly criminal. Auel continues to craft and develop her core characters [...]

  • THis is a looong book, but I suppose it would have to be, considering it tells of Ayla and Jondalar's long journey west across prehistoric Europe back to Jondalar's home. There are several long sections where not much happens, so we read about the landscape, the plants, and the animals. The best parts are when they interact with other bands of people along the way.Ayla continues to impress everyone she encounters, and she is coming into her own not only as a healer, but as a bit of a spiritual/c [...]

  • Update - I finally finished this book, after being stalled for, oh, only 2 and a half years or so. The beginning of the next-to-latest edition in the Clan of the Cave Bear series (or Jondalar and the Pleasures, as my wife and I have taken to calling it) is a bit tedious (hence why I got stuck) because it's just Ayla and Jondalar traveling. So, if you do plunge in, get ready for lots of long-winded nature descriptions and Auel's patented cave porn©. However, things really get moving again once t [...]

  • A reread to prepare for reading The Land of Painted Caves.I decided to start with this one rather than Clan of the Cave Bear having read the first three so many times in the past. Jean Auel's later books suffer from much repetition of previous events, so I don't feel like I missed much of the previous three books! The Plains of Passage is interesting for its descriptions of glacial-epoch flora and fauna, but some of it drags and I found myself longing for some interaction with other ice-age peop [...]

  • Having read the whole series. book 1 ROCKED, book 2 was not bad book 3 was cheesy. book 4 was a bore, book 5 however seems to be getting back on track and is on par with book 2. Ms. Auel has this nasty habit of repeating everything so much that you have the feeling its to compensate for lack of inspiration. Lady, if we've gotten to book 5 all we need is a reminder (think flat heads) you don't have to tell us everything all over again, and DEFINITELY not more than once per book. That and between [...]

  • I'm about 1/3 of the way through this book, but I will be setting it down for awhile. First off, it's not as good as the other 3. I have been able to skip pages and pages of material. She covers so much stuff and gives the background story to everything that happened in the last 3 books. I'm sorry, but I really don't know why anyone would read this who hadn't already read the first 3 - enough with the background into, already! Plus, after 3 full books, I've had enough of the sex scenes. And the [...]

  • Although this series is one of my favorites, this book was not the best. As I was reading this book, I became utterly bored. I would end up reading about a paragraph a night becasue I couldn't stand reading more. It was highly redundant, as it decribed the SAME THING about twenty different ways. Loved the other books in this series, but this one was pretty dry.

  • Σε σύγκριση με τα υπόλοιπα ήταν κακό. Τι να πρωτοπω. Αρχικά οι επαναλήψεις απο προηγούμενα βιβλία χωρίς λόγο είναι πάρα πολλές και εκτενής. Τι έγινε, που με όλες τις λεπτομέρειες σαν να διάβαζα κάποιο προηγούμενο βιβλίο. Ο Τζονταλάρ ως άντρας πρότυπο συνεχίζει να είναι άσχη [...]

  • Gera knyga, bet kaip užkniso nuolatiniai praeities pasikartojimai. Suprantu jei neskaitytos pirmos knygos, tai gal ir idomu, bet kai žinai kas buvo ir čia kas kažkiek puslapių vėl tą patį primena ir primena, vos ne tais pačiais žodžiais, tai Dar vienas erzinantis dalykas jų sekso scenos. Lyg ir norėta erotikos suteikt knygai, bet jos visos tokios vienodos ir nuobodžios kad pradėjau praleidinėt neskaičius. Ir paskutinis dalykas kas nepatiko, tai: knygos ištesimas, ištempimas. J [...]

  • The Plains of Passage is the fourth novel in Jean Auel's "Earth's Children" series, and is one of my favorites. This novel picks up with Ayla and Jondalar, Whinney, Racer, and Wolf all leaving the summer camp of the Mamutoi peoples and beginning the long journey back across the Ice-Age steppes of what is now the Ukraine to the delta of the Great Mother River (Donau/Duna/Danube River), and thence across eastern Europe all the way back to Jondalar's Zelandonii peoples in what is now southern Franc [...]

  • Having read the first three books in this series (the first being the best, hands-down) I was excited to read this book and see how Jondalar and Ayla would continue their journey.Auel is very imaginative and descriptive, but she definitely overdoes it in some parts. You could easily cut out a couple of hundred pages from here (the original volume is over 800 pages) and not miss anything because she goes in such lavish, long descriptions of the landscape and flora and fauna. Now, I'm happy that s [...]
