Publisher's Summary

Leaving the valley of horses with Jondalar, the handsome man she has nursed back to health and come to love, Ayla embarks on a journey that will lead her to the Mamutoi; the Mammoth Hunters. But as she settles into this new life among a people at first strange and disturbingly different, Ayla finds herself irresistibly drawn to Ranec, their master-carver. Ultimately, she is compelled to make a fateful choice between the two men.

Jean Auel's imaginative reconstruction of pre-historic life, rich in detail of language, culture, myth, and ritual, has become a set text in schools and colleges around the world.

What the Critics Say

"The authenticity of background detail, the lilting prose rhythms, and the appealing conceptual audacity continue to work their spell." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Well worth a listen."
    Where does The Mammoth Hunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    My favourite book is always the one I'm reading or listening to at the time (currently Plains of Passage).


    What other book might you compare The Mammoth Hunters to, and why?

    The only books I can compare this to are the other Earths Children books Jean M. Auel.


    What does Rowena Cooper bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Nothing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would really liked to have listened to this in one sitting but due to the length I couldn't. I wouldn't have this shortened though.

    "Half way through the series"

    Not my favourite of the series because Jondalar is such an idiot in it. Comes to his senses in the end though :)

    Story
    "stone age soap opera"

    I LOVED the preceding book, Valley of the Horses, but this was a slog. Not much of a story apart from a misunderstanding over marriage (really? a bit hard to believe) which went on and on and on. And found the preachy description teaching me about clothes, baskets, spears, food, etc etc a bit tedious. So a bit of a yawn really.

    Story
    "not as good as first or second but still very good"

    There were moments when I was thinking "how much more sophisticated will this cavemen get?" Story is definitely less interesting than first two parts or perhaps just different and less to my liking. Performance still very good.

    "Enthralling storyline"

    Very moving in places. Loved the 'ménage a trois' storyline and found myself shouting at Ayla and Jondolar in places!!

    "Emotional roller coaster!"

    Yes another beautifully written sequel but for me too emotionally frustrating between Ayla and Jondala :-s..............still, another must read !
