Well written and descriptive, but flawed.

I really enjoyed this book. I read it when I was younger and have a lot of nostalgia towards it.

However upon rereading (or rather, listening) I can now look at the book with a critical view. The descriptive capabilities of Jean M. Auel cannot be denied, however sometimes this can be a deficit. The author can describe the scenery and people in such a way that you can see them in your head with perfect clarity, however this does cause the sprinkled in sex scenes to get graphic, and I didn’t know there was so many ways to describe a mans private parts.

I love this series, I listen to the books back to back. However even I can admit that there are flaws to it. Thankfully, Audible have a 30 second skip option if the sex scenes become too much.

All in all, a great series that I regularly recommend to people (with a warning about the regular intercourse)
I really enjoyed it and will definitely listen again once I finish the series.
