lifetime is making a movie-- Millie Brady To Star In ‘The Clan Of The Cave Bear’ Lifetime Pilot Ron Howard is one of the producers so it sounds good

Hopefully it will be better than the Darryl Hannah version. That was tedious to say the least. Never heard of this actress but she is beautiful.

Read the first book but never any more of the series. Just didn't like it.

Re: Jean Auel (Clan of the Cave Bear)

I read the first two books. My beloved sister loved and read the whole series up until she became too sick.

I liked the books, they were a fast read. However, I didn't like the gratuitous lovemaking scenes, as I doubt cavemen really made 20th century style love. That kinda eroded the flow of the era for me (I am not a prude about love scenes in a book . . . it just didn't make sense).

I had no idea she was still writing sequels . . . wow!!
