whataboutdurc posts on 6/28/2012 12:44:43 AM Just finished Painted Caves and I'm very disappointed. Please either write a proper ending which would include Ayla being reunited with Durc or have someone else write it for you. I feel like Kathy Bates from Misery. You just can't end it like this!! We want to see Ayla and Durc reuited. Start writing now and don't stop until we get to see Ayla and Durc finding eachother again! Oh, and killing off Broud in the process would be an awesome ending.
Ed posts on 6/27/2012 8:08:09 PM I was also disapointed with Land of the Painted Caves when I first read it. I then re-read it with the mind set that it is Jean's book, not mine and that time I actually enjoyed it. In the meantime I wrote what I thing the last book should be and I like my ending better - although the story must never actually end.
Jane Osborn posts on 6/21/2012 6:24:51 AM Hi Jean!! I am sssooo disappointed in Land of The Painted Caves! Seems to me you ran out of stories to tell. You should have stopped then at Shelter of Stones and we- your fans could have used our imaginations. I am unemployed and used what little I had to buy the book - utter waste of money!!!

kracine posts on 5/31/2012 3:00:37 AM I just finished The Sacred Mountain, and I thought it was an impressive effort. Any fan of the Earths Childrens books will enjoy it. Take a look.
Sandy posts on 5/21/2012 12:32:16 PM Emma, go to fanfiction-earths children. It was an awesome ending.
emma posts on 5/21/2012 10:52:51 AM Where can I find the book The Sacred Mountain? I looked online and cannot find a link. Thanks.
Sandy posts on 5/21/2012 9:26:06 AM I'll add my two cents. Many years ago hubby bought me the COTCB on tape. I just had to get the rest of the story. I just loved the series and had to have all the books. I listened to them many times before the last book came out. I bought the last one and could never get into it. Than started reading the reviews. Well lets just say I have not gone back to the last book. It is a shame you didn't get someone to do Ayla the ending she deserved. I recently read 'the sacred mountain' and it was what should have been wrote to end the series. Sorry Jean M. Auel if this disturbs you.
Robin posts on 5/1/2012 12:26:38 PM I will be forever grateful I did not buy this book, but took it out of the library, though I am sorry that they wasted their money. Painted Caves was poorly thought out, poorly written, repetitive (Jean Auel's signature style), boring, unrealistic, did I say repetitive, JUNK. Clan of the Cave Bear one of the best novels ever, they went down hill from there. Whomever edited this one and gave the go ahead for publishing... bet they lost their job. Since Mrs Auel can repeat herself ad nauseum so will I.. it is JUNK.
Bert posts on 4/12/2012 5:16:56 PM Read BROUDS_DESTINY and you might witness a reunion between Ayla and Durc. Jean is up into her 70's and can't be expected to provide an ending to the story any different than the one she gave in book number 6.
