Instead of a top pick, I'm going with my biggest disappointment.
The Land of Painted Caves (Earth's Children #6) by Jean M. Auel

This was not the book I expected and from the reviews I read at Goodreads and Amazon I know I'm not alone with my views.
I wonder if this was the series a younger Jean Auel had intended to write 30 years ago. I hope so; I want to believe she is satisfied with her work and doesn't care what anyone else thinks even with the review I wrote here.
I wish her well.


  1. Some great titles! I wanna read The Land of Painted Caves bad! I LOVED Clan of Cave Bear!
    Happy May Reading!

  2. You were busy! I've heard so much about Auel's books. Must read them sometime!
