Still Another Masterpiece by Jean Auel

"The Mammoth Hunters" is Jean M. Auel's third book in The Clan of the Cave bear series. We return to the prehistoric past with Ayla and her mate Jondalar. After living with a clan of differently evolved people that time has forgotten, Ayla finally meets a tribe of people like herself and Jondalar.' Ayla struggles to learn the customs of a people that her mate says are similar to his own. Turmoil between Ayla and Jondalar allows Ranec, a Mamutoi tribesman, to get emotionally closer to Ayla. Jondalar's jealously and pride make communication between himself and her impossible. After being adopted by the Mamutoi, Ayla has to decide whether to marry Ranec or hold out for the man she thinks doesn't love her anymore. The coupling of the difficulties of people living in close quarters and dangers of surviving in an exciting prehistoric world make this book hard to put down. "The Mammoth Hunters" is another successful masterpiece by Auel.

Una historia de pasion y erotismo

Este tercer libro de la serie ya no es sólo un libro de aventuras sobre de la mujer solitaria que lucha por sobrevivir durante la edad de piedra. Ahora es una historia llena de pasion y erotismo entre esta mujer y el hombre que ama, el primero que conocio de su especie y como luego de vivir solitaria por tanto tiempo llega a ganarse el cariño y logra convivir con personas con costumbres tan diferentes al "clan" en donde fue criada.

Realistic -

This book is the third in the series of Earth's Children. Ayla and Jondaler are now staying with the Mammoth Hunters. I like this book because Alya and Jondelar are with the Lion Camp for a long time, so you really learn a lot about their culture. Ayla struggles to fit in and to overcome her early conditioning. Jondalar has to learn to let her go and not restrict her. Many readers didn't like this book because they said it was too much like a soap opera,with the love triangle between Ranec Jondalar and Ayla.I agree the misunderstanding and suspence made me feel like screaming. It did drag on at times, yet life is like that. At the moment I'm going through the same kind of thing with my friends and all though I try to communiacate it is hard to understand the other person, I enjoy reading Jean Auel's books because they are realistic and relate to problems everyone has. I constantly look back at these books, and Ayla is my role model. My favorite part in the book was when Ayla found the little wolf pup and brought him back to the camp. I read the Clan of the Cave Bear when I was in Seventh grade, and the next three in eighth grade, I'm now fourteen. I do agree with the point that 10 and 11 year olds should not read the 2nd third and fourth books, although it really is the parents choice. I think The Clan of the Cave Bear is a great book for all ages. I feel that These books are okay even with the sex, after all thats life. Still the books should be left to mature readers. Its not just because of the sex, I feel that the books are such good liturature that many of the subtle hints go over some readers heads. People who don't like the books obviously don't understand half of the things in them, they look to hard into it. They are fiction, and aren't meant to be ananlyzed. If you are ready for a good read these are great books, but you must be prepared, you won't be able to put them down. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FIFTH ONE TO COME OUT IN 2002!!!!!

See the world of Earth's Children from many viewpoints

I was surprised to see that readers' ratings of this book were not as good as those for the other three books in this series. In my opinion, it should be the other way around. I think that this is the best book in the series (despite the admittedly contrived, unnecessarily prolonged romantic problems in which Ayla and Jondalar become entangled). This is the only book in the series that gives you a detailed look at life among Earth's Children from points of view other than Ayla's and Jondalar's. Readers who identify more with older people (like Crozie), middle-aged people with heavy responsibilities (like Talut and Tulie), adolescents (like Latie), or young mothers (like Tronie and Fralie) can all have a chance to see what life was like for people like them in Jean Auel's world. The other books tell you about Ayla and Jondalar. The Mammoth Hunters lets you be part of a community.
