Phew, I’ve just finished The Mammoth Hunters by Jean M Auel. It’s a much more of a girly love story than the first two books, but a fantastic read anyway. There is definitely a change of pace in this book compared to the first two. The two main characters meeting the mammoth hunters of the title allows for much broader character development. The constant repetition of known facts was a little annoying, but in all, a good tale very well told.
It’s on to The Plains Of Passage next. I remember this being a slow book. It’s certainly a lot thicker than the first three.
