1. Mai 2003 Earth's Children
Ayla and Jondalar have reached home: the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii, the old stone age settlement in the region known today as south-west France. Ayla has much to learn from the Zelandonii as well as much to teach them. Jondalar's family are initially wary of the beautiful young woman he has brought back, with her strange accent and her tame wolf and horses. She is delighted when she meets Zelandoni, the spiritual leader of her people, a fellow healer with whom she can share her medicinal skills. After the rigours and dangers that have characterised her extraordinary life, Ayla yearns for peace and tranquillity; to be Jondalar's mate and to have children. But her unique spiritual gifts cannot be ignored, and even as she gives birth to their eagerly-awaited child, she is coming to accept that she has a greater role to play in the destiny of the Zelandonii.

Jean M Auel's The Shelters of Stone, is the latest title in the Earth's Children series--undoubtedly one of the most celebrated works in publishing history--and includes The Clan of the Cave Bear, The Valley of Horses, The Mammoth Hunters and The Plains of Passage. Each of these books enjoyed long runs on the bestseller lists across the world and have sold more than three million copies in the British marketplace. There are 28 foreign language editions of Auel's books in print and 34 million copies have been sold worldwide.

The Shelters of Stone continues the story of Ayla who lost her family to an earthquake and was raised by the people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear. She arrives in the land of the man she loves, but his people are wary of her and think of the Clan who cared for her as animals that resemble people and who are not much smarter than beasts. Ayla has brought with her two horses and a wolf over which she has uncanny control. Ayla vows to learn from the Zelandonii and hopes, in turn, to teach them. She is particularly pleased to meet the spiritual leader of the tribe, a fellow healer with whom she is able to share medical skills and knowledge. But Ayla's greatest problem is to convince her new hosts that she is from a tribe of human beings, not the subhumans they are regarded as. And when she gives birth to her eagerly awaited child, she is forced to accept that she and her child will have to play a very significant role in the clouded destiny of the Zelandon.

Auel is particularly sharp in her characterisation of Ayla, the woman who is foreign and strange in this new land, and her heroine's clashes with her new-found people are handled skilfully. The reader is immersed in another world, one whose every detail is skilfully evoked, while the writing has all the colour and vividness of Auel's previous books.--Barry Forshaw -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


Jean Auel's greatest achievement is to have created a plausible primeval community where men and women love and sometimes hate, and learn to survive in a harsh environment that demands rules and co-operation. -- Daily Express A Stone Age sensation. Auel vividly brings to life a forgotten world. -- Coventry Evening Telegraph Meticulously researched ... fascinating ... course-by-course menus for Upper Paleolithic blow-outs ... that Joanne Harris might envy. Jean Auel is as remarkable a figure as J R R Tolkien. -- Independent Magazine Jean M. Auel has meticulously researched her subject and this latest book should continue the huge success of the series. -- Hello As always, Auel has meticulously researched her prehistoric subject and this latest offering is a triumphant continuation of the saga. -- Irish News (Belfast) Massive in scope -- Daily Mirror Impeccable research makes this much more than a fantasy reconstruction of prehistoric life. -- Daily Express Bursting with hard information about ancient days and awash in steamy sex ... Auel's latest will not only please her legions of fans but will hit the top of the list, pronto. -- Publishers Weekly Enthralling, exciting and impossible to put down. -- York Evening Press A rewarding read. A brilliant work of imagination -- Good Book Guide

2.0 von 5 Sternen Plot? What plot? 30. Juli 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I loved the first three books, and thought the fourth still had some interesting bits and even though the very detailed descriptions of landscape, flora and fauna bored me, the parts where Ayla and Jondalar met people were still interesting. So I expected the next book, where they were confronted with Jondalar's people, to be really fascinating. I reread the four books occasionally in the last twelve years, and I seriously thought Jean Auel wouldn't finish the series after such a long break. But, as soon as I saw that there would be another installment, I preordered it at amazon.
I'm giving this book two stars, because I respect the research Ms. Auel did for it. But it is no fun to read this book.
Dear fellow readers, please don't spend the money on the hardback. If you must own it for continuity sakes, wait for the paperback. If you want to know what happens, check it out in your library. Don't start reading, when you're already tired. Don't take it with you on a journey without packing alternatives.
This book is so boooooring!! The worst thing first: There is no plot. Ayla and Jondalar meet his family and his cave, Ayla gets adopted again, she shows her skills as a healer, all go to the great Zelandoni summer meeting, Ayla and Jondalar get married, Ayla gives birth to a daughter, and Whinney gives birth to a filly. Jondalar's former flame succeeds in convincing Ayla to train as a Zelandoni (spiritual leader and healer). That's it. There are descriptions, introductions, a terrible, very long poem, and all this is often repeated in the book. People are shocked by the tame animals, people are amazed by the firestones, the spear-thrower, the theory that flatheads are people, too.... and this happens not once, twice, thrice ...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ayla kommt nach Hause 2. Mai 2002
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Nach einer Wartezeit von 12 Jahren ist die Aufregung groß, endlich die Fortsetzung der Geschichte um Ayla und Jondalar in den Händen zu halten. Hat sich das Warten gelohnt? Für mich ganz sicher!
In ihrer gewohnt sorgfältigen Art zeichnet Auel die Kultur eines paleolithischen Sammler-und Jägervolkes in allen Details nach. Dabei integriert sie souverän archäologische Funde und neueste Erkenntnisse über unsere Vergangenheit und interpretiert sie auf eine Weise, die die Welt dieser Menschen sehr real erscheinen läßt.
Anders als in den vorangegangen Büchern, in denen Ayla aufwuchs, zur geistigen und körperlichen Reife gelangte und durch ihr Talent und ihre Andersartigkeit zunehmend von den Menschengruppen auf ihrer langen Reise idealisiert wurde, ist sie nun eine Fremde, die zwar freundlich, aber dennoch distanziert aufgenommen wird.
Ayla ist wieder mehr Frau, weniger Göttin.
Die Zelandonii, Jondalar's Volk, sind eine erfolgreiche, selbstbewußte Gruppe, die Neuem gegenüber zwar offen ist, die vom tatsächlichen Nutzen dieser Neuerungen jedoch überzeugt sein muß, bevor sie sie akzeptiert. Daher lösen einige von Ayla's und Jondalar's neuen Erfindungen weniger Aufregung aus als vielleicht erwartet. Dafür wird das Bild einer Gruppe gezeichnet, die fest in einem Weltbild und einer Religion eingebunden ist. Generell verlagert sich der Schwerpunkt leicht zum Spirituellen hin, eine Mythologie wird entwickelt und viele der in Südfrankreich gefundenen Malereien und Skulpturen werden in diese Mythologie eingebunden.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Goodness, DONI!! 23. Dezember 2003
Mamma mia! After all these years of hopefully checking for the new release list, praying it will be on it eventually, I got it used (almost right after released date) and was stunned someone would give it away. I mean, my first 4 books are prices possessions, read and reread about every year. Anyone so much as THINKING about borrowing it risks permanent damage. However, this does not come close to the charisma of the others. I'm not even 1/4 through and I'm ready to give it back too. Yes, the repetitions are a nightmare, and if this book was not written for her fans (as in, us who bought the first 4??) but for someone who might never have heard about Ayla.... why bother? They get this, they definately won't go out to hunt for 1-4.
The research and the information is fantastic as usual, which is the only reason there even IS a star or two. And, ahem, am I having major deja vu problems, or did we not already HAVE the scenarios playing out in in the other books, down to almost identical sounding names. Lets see, the jealous ex dressing Ayla up in boys clothes (check), village drunk making her life hell (check,) drunk mother neglecting kids and Ayla coming to the rescue (check), halfblood (okay, quarter this time, but puhleez) adoring Ayla and otherwise being mistreated (check), and on and on it goes. I am half expecting her to stumble over a lion cub somewhere. Not only does this book repeat itself, but it seems indeed 10 years were too long to remember what was already written, by way of storylines and ooops, here we go again. It appears we, the fans, have read them far more often then the author. How very sad. No matter how much better (if any) the book gets towards the end, I will neither keep an eye trained on the new release list, nor buy another sequel.
