The Shelters of Stone

Only bad thing about this book is knowing the author has left us fans hanging for too many years now to finally get to read the final conclusion of the series.

The story is slow, but doesn’t drag so much as meander; Ayla learns about a new culture and meets new people, so the plot is character-based.

Pretty much nothing happens in terms of plot whatsoever. This book is in sore need of an editor. But no matter how relentless the pressure, by yielding to it, the girls became ultimately less desirable as mates because it indicated a lack of sufficient self-control. All these elements were explained in detail in previous books. I debated writing this review.

Parker’s mission takes him from Maine to the deserts of the Mexican border; from the canals of Amsterdam to the streets of London – he will track those who would cast this world into darkness. During the whole series the main character, Ayla, is always figuring out new techniques and discovering new ideas and possibilities. It is an insult to call the other characters “characters”. And in the woman Zelandoni, the aeul leader of the Ninth Cave and the one who initiated Jondalar into the Gift of Pleasureshe meets a fellow xhelters with whom to share her knowledge and skills.


Sure, you can bring him your problems – but the chances are his solutions will blow your mind. It was like she was more concerned with making the last 4 books understandable to a brand-new reader – as if any new reader to Auel would pick up book 5 from her series on purpose!

In my opinion, ignorance is bliss. Sandra Burr has been doing an amazing job narrating these books and somehow managing to not burst into giggles during the sex scenes. They even make their homes in limestone cliffs! This is also why Ayla’s confrontations with Zolena and Marona are also resolved in such an unsatisfactory way. Views Read Edit View history. The series started crashing with “Plains of Passage” sheters Jondalar and Ayla “Pleasured” themselves across the continent while righing wrongs, curing injustice and jen life styles in their spare time.

Now, where’s the real novel?

The Shelters of Stone (Earth’s Children, #5) by Jean M. Auel

The Best Books of Or rage about the number of books that were rejected to make room on the bookseller list for THIS. Wolf, she too seems dangerous I think that by pointing this out Jean M.

She could heal cancer with willow bark tea; she can wear boy’s underwear a big Zelandani no-no and a top with her boobs hanging out, and no one will mutter a peep about her indiscretion–in fact, women will imitate her and every man will get a huge boner for her and yes, this does happen.


Here at last, jewn Ayla and her tall, gorgeous Cro-Magnon lover, Jondalar, arrive in Jondalar’s Zelandonii homeland, to live with his clan in vast caves of what today is France. At times I was living experiences with Ayla and could feel all of the confusion, heartache, loss and joy each character experienced.

A seemingly endless stalemate ensues, and twenty years later a rogue CIA agent sets out to exploit it as stkne geopolitical pawn – unaware that the temple is the locus of grander conspiracies than anyone could have imagined.

Wow, that was an amazing book. Concepts are just excepted, with no further explanation.

If Auel has an understanding of human nature and motivation, I will eat my hat – all the character dialogue in this book is banal and inane, and so are the characters, little more than flat stereotypes with no depth or complexity to their personalities whatsoever. You coulda fooled me! I do not need to hear about Ayla’s “folds” and “hard nodule” or Jondalar’s “tumescent manhood”. And what rhe forms the climax of this wreck of a book?
