Greetings,

I loved the first book, the second book was fine, but Auel had Ayla invent just about half pleistocene technology all by herself was pushing it a bit.

The third book was passable.

I very rarely give up on a book. Hell, I slogged my way through Heinlein's number of the beast, so I have a strong endurance factor.

But I gave up on the Plains of passage. Jondalar's insecurity and Ayla flightyness was really getting on my nerves.

I'm debating going back to finish Plains and see if book 5 is worth it.

Cheers,
