Phew, I’ve finally finished The Plains Of Passage. It was very good… in the end. I found it painfully slow in the beginning. It took me from a week last monday until yesterday afternoon to get past halfway. I’ve finished the last 300 pages since then. A big difference.
I love authors that pay attention to detail, but Ms Auel seemed to go too far in this book. The repetition of the same facts got quite irritating at times. But the strong characters and (eventually) the excellent adventures made it worth it.
Finally, I’m on to The Shelters of Stone next.
