2.0 out of 5 stars As expected, Jan. 7 2003
I knew it was going to be repetetive, because I'd read 1,2,3 and 5. Certain phrases just kept popping up, for example," What would I do without you?" says Jondalar. And don't forget the ever-present frown lines for good measure.
The authors description of the Ice Age animals were amazing though, especially the mammoths.
The storyline was just too...well, i suppose romantic. Don't get me wrong, I love romance books, but I expected an adventure. Not to say that a Journey across a continent isn't an adventure, but there were so many aspects of the novel that were too Mills &Boon. There were plenty of opportunities for Jondalar to prove his manliness and possessiveness, lots of petty fights- but of course they make up, kiss, have wild sex with, once again, Jondalar proving his manliness.
After a while, the whole thing with Jondalar being beautiful, Ayla being gorgeous and kind and loving, it just gets too boring. Is anyone else sick if Aylas ptarmigan?

4.0 out of 5 stars A very long book..., May 5 2001
This review is from: Mistress of the Empire (Paperback)
This is a great book, but I almost cried when Mara went with Kevin- how could she leave a great guy like Hokanu?!??!?! THe worst bit was when she petitioned for a divorce and there was a " cry of pain" in his eyes. He was the best husband! My last words- WHY Mara, why? ps. The whole thing wiht Arakasi finally finding someone was sweet as well
