I picked up the first book of the Earth’s Children series (Jean M. Auel) to take a break from the Moribito series (Nahoko Uehashi), but I’m a bit stumped with the book… Clearly a lot of research has gone into writing this, but I keep losing interest every time the story diverts into lengthy flora & fauna descriptions. I’ve bought the book so I might as well finish it, and perhaps the reason why I’m running out of stamina in these sections is simply because I’m not into the story yet (usually when I’m into a story I plough through the bits I don’t like so much because I’m anxious to know what happens next), but I get the feeling that finishing this will be a looooong journey…….
