I read the Earth’s Children books when I was about thirteen. I’m not terribly interested in the long-delayed fifth installment, but out of curiosity I clicked on its Amazon link to see if the synopsis looked interesting at all. Here’s what I found, attributed to the Library Journal:
“Now, after 12 years, we have the fifth installment in Auel’s “Earth Children” series. Here, Ayla and Jondalar hike across Europe.”
Huh? Last time I checked, that’s what happened in the fourth book. Unless they decide they don’t like it there in the first chapter and turn around to go back, someone’s read the wrong volume.
