I love this book series. The first book covers more years of Ayla's life than any other. It pulls you in with her struggle to fit in and understand the flatheads who took her in. Her struggles leave you feeling frustrated at the circumstances and need for conformity. Auel does a great job at describing almost every aspect of nature and what the characters are seeing. At times it can be very repetitive but it makes you remember the aspects of each plant and animal and paints a very precise picture of what she is describing.

This is a good read; not a masterwork but very entertaining and enjoyable with characters you care about, particularly Ayla.

This book is interesting and well written; definitely worth reading. Keep in mind that this series is historical fiction and many of the capabilities and attributes of the neanderthal people are still being debated.

Highly enjoyable, and seems to be very well researched. Glad I didnt read it as an 11 year old though due to some adult situations.

I adore this book and all of the books in this series! The minute I began to read it, I just could not put it down. Not only does it have a great story line but the author has also managed to seamlessly fit in facts! The book has taught me so much about Neanderthals and the development of man yet in an engaging way that did not bore me. I became addicted to this book and have since devoured the rest in the series! Definitely worth reading!

The Clan of the Cave Bear ---- by Jean M. Auel c - 2001 ---- Truly this story (#1) is the best of the series and the second book should have been named 'Clan of the Cave bear, part #2'. ---- They are both a good read and you will enjoy them a great deal. ---- Get comfy and dive into the story. ---- Enjoy! ---- RichardPaul

This book is an outstanding piece of literature.Not only did I find lyself imersed in the story,but I also learned so much about early human life.I found myself questioning the non fictional parts og this book as much as I wondered thr charcter's fate.Did ancient humans really live like this/I would recommend it to anyone for an exciting read.

I loved this book. And the second 'Valley of the Horses' was good too. However, I think Jean Auel's lost the vision of what made her series start off so great. The books gradually became more of a graphic romance novel rather than a novel with romance. I hope she finishes her final book soon, since this book 'Clan of the Cave Bear' was published about 30 years ago (in 1980) - it would be nice to have some closure in the story.
