The Land of Painted Caves by Jean M. Auel
The Land of Painted Caves

winter reader, September 20, 2011

Sadly, "The Land of the Painted Caves" is a disappointing addition to the "Clan" series of books. The endless, detailed descriptions of the various caves and their artwork becomes tedious and extremely boring in a short while. Ms. Auel's editor did her a disservice by not strongly suggesting she delete or severely shorten the bulk of these descriptions. Perhaps Ms. Auel could have salved her desire to share her intimate knowledge of actual caves by writing a separate tour guide or archeological/artistic documentary on them rather than embedding them in a book of fiction. Readers are warned to be prepared to skip perhaps hundreds of pages of description; for followers of the series, the book can still be enjoyed, but, keep your finger wet to turn past the lengthy descriptions.
