    1 thought on “The Mammoth Hunters

    1. WARNING: This book has caused me a lot of heartache, and as I review it, I may end up in a ball of mush, blathering unintelligibly.When we last left Ayla and Jondalar, they were returning to Jondalar's family, standing smiling as they met one of the Mamutoi. Now, Ayla is quivering in fear, afraid that this Other is going to see her and immediately know, somehow, that she lived with the Clan and hate her (this is only 1 of the many continuity conflicts in this story). Jondalar, being the perfect [...]

    2. In the distant unknown , murky past ( no history books to tell their stories), during the era of the caveman , two groups of people struggle to survive in a cruel territory that someday the nation of Ukraine will be established our ancestors the Cro-Magnon man, the new arrivals from Africa, where the human race was born and the more primitive Neanderthals who have been in Europe for at least 200,000 years, never very numerous, short but quite powerful , very durable too and contrary to the moder [...]

    3. 5 STARSWow! These books are good! Now I’m beginning to see how they became such a craze back in the eighties. It boggles the mind how much research and simple creative story-telling the author has pulled together to make this epic story come to life. And yes, it is a love story.My only complaint is the length. The author occasionally goes a bit overboard with her descriptive explanations of tool making and hide curing etc etc etc! Very interesting, but I think they could be honed down a good b [...]

    4. I have a huge Love hate relationship with these books. The author repeats herself over and over again; she treats the reader like they're stupid and cannot remember a thing. In fact I believe any good editor could cut these books down by hundreds of pages. Yet, this series is addicting. The first one is by far the best but be prepared to be sucked in - if you read the first you will want to read them all.

    5. This has been my least favorite out of the Earths Children series, although I find it hard to dislike any of the books.The love story in this one starts out strong, and by the time you get half way through, you are so sick of the misunderstandings and hurt feelings that you feel no one could be that stupid about love.For some reason, both of the main characters bothered me to some degree in this book. Aside from the love story being obnoxious, you half expect that Jondolar has reverted back to a [...]

    6. I was hooked into this series by the first book, "Clan of the Cave Bear", a fun, well-written novel with excellent character relationships. I instantly read the sequel, "The Valley of Horses", but found myself a bit dubious, as there were a couple of issues this time around with the characterisations and it dragged in places. Nevertheless, I persisted, convinced that "The Valley of Horses" had just been a brief dip before the series got back to the good standard of the first book. I was wrong, a [...]

    7. This book could have been much shorter and I probably would have enjoyed it more! Is she getting paid per word? ha. The characters became more weak and aggravating, their silly storylines were drawn on for far too long. Still, it was somewhat enjoyable, but I don't know if I want to continue reading this series (I'm taking a break!) ha.

    8. Absolutely loved this one again, she's keep[ing me super into this world and I've barely been reading other books becuase I've just been immersed into this world :)Ayla's story is once more continued in this book but now we have Jondalar accompanying her to integrate with new types of people and clans. She's managed to learn so much from Jondalar, but her heritage and customs from living as part of the Clan of the Cave Bear are still ingrained in her behaviour and finally meeting more 'Others' i [...]

    9. The short rundown:A page turner, as in: Pedantic description – turn page. Tell not show – turn page. Angst and more angst – turn page. Repeat history (telling) again and again and – turn page. Describe all actions in minute detail – turn page. Another long description of “pleasures” – turn pages.The longer rundown:All actions ‘must’ be described in mind numbing detail. Ditto descriptions, feelings, etc. AND then repeated later. Does anyone actually read these stories word by [...]

    10. 1. The Clan of the Cave Bear ★★★★★2. The Valley of Horses ★★★★★3. The Mammoth Hunters ★★★★Oh this book drove me crazy! This has one of the most emotionally trying love-triangles that I have ever encountered. For 3/4 of the book I wanted to pull out my hair and slap a whole bunch of people. I am glad that in the next book Ayla and Jondalar have left the Mamutoi. I could not handle any more of that. But I still love Ayla and Jondalar despite their cluelessness and I lov [...]

    11. ***Spoilers, maybe***What did I learn from the first three books of this series? Ayla is Jesus……I know!Well there is a little more to it I suppose. The first book in the series “Clan of the Cave Bear” is about the life of a young human child, Ayla, who due to an earthquake, is orphaned and then is raised by a group of Neanderthals. Ayla, inventing feminism, goes against the rules of the “Clan” and does a bunch of stuff women of the Clan are not supposed to do, like hunting and speaki [...]

    12. We had this au pair, an extremely smart girl who later became the editor of an architecture journal. A friend who liked women's erotica lent her a copy of The Mammoth Hunters, assuring her that it was a good smutty read. A couple of days later, I asked Isabel if it had lived up to its advance billing. She made a face."Well," she said, "it's the first time I've ever read a book where I found myself skipping the sex scenes. They're soooo boring."She had a way with words, and, like many reviewers o [...]

    13. I couldn't wait for this book to be over because I got so freakin' tired of all the "he doesn't love me" "she doesn't love me" crap! I wanted to shake Ayla and Jondalar and the author for going on and on and on and on about their unrequited love. Either freakin' say "I love you" or move on!!! Another thing I didn't like is that this book (and the previous one) had the most boring repetitive sex scenes. This one didn't have as much sex as the last one but every time they started getting in to it [...]

    14. I was excited about getting into the third installment. It started out very well. Once again, you are learning about what life was like back in those days. There is quite a bit of details thrown in about how structures were built or certain rituals were held, just as in the first two books. I was a bit frustrated with the whole love thing between Ayla and Jondalar. I think it was taken a bit too far.

    15. 4th book read in 2013. Number 61 out of 296 on my all time book list.Follow the link below to see my video review:youtube/watch?v=c5QPbL

    16. Was very disappointed in this book. It just went on and on and on without getting anywhere. It would have definitely been better if it were half as long. I really liked the first two books. I thought the Clan was well done - their differences with the Others were well explained and consistent with how they lived. The second one was an interesting study of someone living alone. During Valley of the Horses, Ayla's inventions and innovations started to stack up a bit and were starting to edge into [...]

    17. I'm sorry, but if you can invent new sex positions you should be able to tell your partner how you feel!

    18. I am apparently unable to stop reading a series, even if it is mediocre. These books are a classic case and point. It is obvious that the quality of these books drops off quickly after the Clan of the Cave Bear, but I am still reading. I enjoy the atmospherics and settings of these novels and the unique environment, as well as many of the characters. At the same time, could do without the cliched love triangle with its obvious resolution in this one. I fear to think what the fifth book will look [...]

    19. Απτην αρχή της γνωριμίας τους ο Τζονταλάρ με εκνεύριζε, ωστόσο το τέλος του βιβλίου με έκανε να θέλω να του δώσω μια ευκαιρία. Ίσως όντως η δοκιμασία να τον άλλαξε. Το 3ο βιβλίο της σειράς μ άρεσε ίσως ακόμα περισσότερο απο το πρώτο.

    20. I'm slowly but surely working my way through the Earth's Children series and this happens to be my least favorite of the bunch. Since I still gave it four stars, it obviously wasn't that bad. The interactions between the characters and the tension between Jondalar and Ayla was pretty believable, but also deeply frustrating. When I'd read the book as a teenager, I'd been more annoyed than I was this time, as I saw the plot largely relying on the fact that characters weren't speaking to one anothe [...]

    21. Yeah, this book gets a lower score than TWILIGHT. And yes, I know I haven't reviewed the other books in the series yet, but this one really stuck out. The fact of the matter is, the first two books were awesome. Which is precisely why this one got as low of a score as it did, my expectations were much higher. Up until this point, this series was a wonderful story of a woman who was learning to think for herself. Sure, things got a little dicey at the end of the second book when Jondalar showed u [...]

    22. 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 [...]

    23. I will be the first to admit that Jean Auel can write about Ice Age Europe and bring it to life. ✎What she cannot write is romance, and therein lies the problem.If you ever try to do what I am doing; that is reading this series (for a second or third time) back-to-backn't. It was so much better the original way - when you had to wait for each book to come out , waiting through the five or more year gaps!The repetitive nature is extremely annoying. I swear she just copied and pasted some parts [...]

    24. Loved it. Read it many years ago and just want to add it to my list.Jean M. Auel, née Jean Marie Untinen is an American writer. She is best known for her Earth's Children books, a series of historical fiction novels set in prehistoric Europe that explores interactions of Cro-Magnon people with Neanderthals. Her books have sold 34 million copies world-wide in many translations.

    25. This novel is book three in the incredible Earth's Children Series.This is a series that really must be read in order.In this novel, you will follow the lead character, Ayla, as she continues her journey - this time with the horse she tamed, Whinney. Others are amazed that Ayla can ride the beast, and it appears she is one of the first humans to do so. She is also joined by her love, Jondalar. Be aware that there are sex scenes in these books, and some are pretty detailed. It is also in this boo [...]

    26. The Mammoth Hunters is the third book in Jean Auel's incredible "Earth's Children" series. This book is largely the tale of Ayla's and Jondalar's time with the 'Mamutoi' peoples of the Upper Paleolithic Ice-Age country of what is now the steppes of the Ukraine. While the plotting of this novel, in my opinion, did bog down a bit with the amount of time spent on the romantic triangle between Ayla, Jondalar, and Ranec, the Mamutoi ivory carver; I was amazed at the amount of anthropological and arch [...]

    27. When we last left Ayla in the previous book, she was following her lover Jondalar to go meet his people--the Mammoth Hunters. Ayla was born to these people but doesn't remember anything about it because she was raised by Neanderthals, so this is going to be scary but eye-opening for her, theoretically. While I liked the idea of her getting her culture shock and actually having a chance to interact with other men and other women, I didn't like that so much of it was about sex, and I didn't like h [...]

    28. Well I remembered nothing about it and was hoping I would enjoy it more, but no dice. The series is a strange mixture of cheesy romance novel and fascinating information about the Ice Age culture and customs. I'm sure Auel embroidered details endlessly and feel frustrated not to know how much was made up and how much is accurate. I will go on with the next and hope I don't feel the same compulsion to throw the book across the room!

    29. I loved this book. Ayla and Jondalar are still learning about communication and making mistakes, some of them with bad consequences but their love ended been stronger. But I enjoy the stories and the characters. Can’t wait for the next book.
