View all 20 comments. Maybe they will learn to hate Ayla now or at least re-imagine that what she brought to auell world wreaked havoc. When Ayla finds Jondular having sex with Marona. I shall not throw stones into her little glass house. Few writers can say that and mean it and I hope she is satisfied with what she produced.

The Land of Painted Caves by Jean M Auel: Bad sex award extract

Ultimately, all writers know that that is what really matters. I could never have imagined that sex rites, orgies and drug-taking could seem like so little fun or be surrounded by so many rules and rituals. She and what’s-his-name have another breakup. Just won this on GoodReads First Reads and am looking forward to it arriving. I loved these books as a kid.

Suddenly, almost too soon, they felt the Pleasure mounting. Is that too maudlin? Ayla nearly dies, and is called back to life by a contrite and suddenly passionately loving Jondalar. Ayla reveals to this cave-dwelling society that zuel isn’t spirits that make babies, it’s sex.

I have never seen an author who was so incredibly untrue to her characters. See all 5 questions about The Land of Painted Caves….

I remember the feeling I had when Stephen King got hit by that van, thinking Roland was going to die with him. The sex, though greatly reduced only two explicit sex scenes and two instances of being interrupted while having sexare still hilariously over the top and monotonous.


The Land of Painted Caves

Jondalar, besides being said jealous pr! I loved the silly banter between the people that introduced Ayla to a sense of humor and laughing.

Jonayla is probably the only baby only a few months old that can wait to urinate until her mother removes her from her carrying basket.

We get to see some old friends and find out what happened to others. When all is said and done, even if I had read the reviews before purchasing this book, I would still have purchased and read it. It could easily have been edited down to pages max. For this book she got to visit many of ausl caves with cave paintings. As of her books cavea sold more than 45 million copies worldwide, in many translations.

I don’t know what happened to Jean Auel’s writing skills in the hiatus, but this book is purely awful! As others have said TOO much repetion!!

The cxves mystery, the thing that kept us reading, has just gone off into endless repetition of non-essential details. Zelandoni rides a travois.

The Land of Painted Caves – Wikipedia

cavew This is what makes the books so satisfying, and this last one is no different. I know a few people who wouldn’t mind holding her down. So far this book is awful, the editor should be fired. Auel decided to write another book, she could easily pick up where she left off. Cxves turns Madroman’s bag over to the Zelandonia, and he is rejected from their ranks for his attempted deception.


The depth and breadth of her experiences while writing all this are absolutely commendable. Want to Read saving…. This bison looks left. I can save you the trouble of attempting to plough through Ms Auel’s Potteresque doorstop in a few easy sentences. I won’t faves describing why it’s bad — there’s only 18, characters left and you don’t care that much because you’re not going to read it.

Actually, the entire Part Two feels like a non-fiction wrok. Would Ayla ever find love, family, belonging or would she constantly wander alone? Nov 23, Jennie rated it it was ok Shelves: Not to mention 5 days of my life wasted on this cheap trash. This feels sloppy and hurried. When you are writing the verses to chants or songs in another language, especially sacred ones, do not, I repeat, do not try to make the words rhyme in English.

No one has ever needed an editor as badly as Auel, and whoever her editor was failed acves to reign her in and create a quality product that I actually care to read. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. She spread her legs to give him more access.
