Favorite Book Meme by hawkdaughter Favorite Book Meme by hawkdaughter
I will be doing at least five more of these, as I want to do one for each of the books that have been published in the Earth's Children series. Some of my answers will be copied and pasted over, since they apply to all 6 books.

My boyfriend calls me a "rabid teenage fangirl", except I fangasm over a paleo anthropology / archeology fiction book instead of some pop culture idol.

The blank meme can be found here: [link]

Isaac Asimov's The Ugly Little Boy is a great story!

Also by the Gears, the "Contact: Battle for America" series is looking like it's going to be great!
I really would like to read everything else they've written.

MORE GOOD BOOKS:

Another good author is Mary Makey, and her Earthsong Trilogy.

"The Children of Dawn" by Patricia Rowe and "Forbidden Land" by William Sarabande and "The Inheritors" by William Golding are a couple of other books.

Then there is also the Geoddessy series by Piers Anthony: Isle of Woman, Shame of Man, Hope of Earth, Muse of Art. There is another book in the works, Climate of Change, but I fear it will never be published.

Another interesting book is Evolution by Stephen Baxter (His Mammoth trilogy is also enjoyable).

The Pillars of the Earth, and its sequel, World Without End, by Ken Follett, are rather amazing books.

There is something that has been bothering me for a while, and to me, at least, it's something nearly as glaring as the onager mistake. (Jean M. Auel has acknowledged previous stated inconsistency, however.)

Has anyone else noticed that in COTCB, Chapter 18, the bottom of page 315 and the very beginning of page 316 (directly after the first time Ayla is given the signal by Broud), Broud seems to have gotten away with a lie?

At least, that's how I read it. I just read it again while trying to find the page, and this time, it seemed that Broud didn't tell her about Ayla's whereabouts though he was aware of Iza’s worry only because Iza did not ask.

The following is the passage in question:
"What could have happened? Iza wondered. Ayla hasn't disobeyed Broud in years. Why would she rebel against him now? And why didn't he tell me he saw her? He knew I was worried. He's been back since noon, why is Ayla so late? Iza cast a quick glance in the direction of Broud's hearth and saw him staring across the boundary stones at Ayla, against all good manners, with a pleased smirk on his face."

After several re-readings, I see now that it more refraining from speaking on Broud's part. I guess you could say that this was the original "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." /badjoke

I've read quite a few of those First North American books. They are pretty good.

Can't believe you started reading at age 9! My mom didn't give me the book until I was 12, but then again, I didn't get into reading until I was 11 or so. :blush:

First book is my favorite too <3

I love it.

I was never censored as a child. My parents never forbade me anything. If I didn't like it, I put it down or changed the channel.

I actually got in trouble at school when I was much, much younger, for knowing about where babies came from. I was in first grade.
