    Wouldn't a novel about Grok just be awesome?

    Hey, the bits of the PB book that I have enjoyed the most are the ones about Grok. I think that, besides the learning one can get out of them, the way Mark writes is really enjoyable and really made me fascinated with the primal life style.

    So, wouldn't a novel with Grok as main character be just great??? Maybe one where you could also learn something about nutrition, fitness and well-being in general?
    Well, let's put it this way, if Mark will ever write one I will be among the first ones to buy it!!

    I think the Earth's Children series, beginning with Clan of the Cave Bear, might come close. I read the series many years ago, long before the PB, and don't remember how closely the characters resemble Grok. I'll read the first book again and see how it goes. Even if it's way different from Grok, I remember it as a great read. (I also remember the 5th book as boring, and haven't bothered buying the 6th book, which came out this year; the first 4 books are well done, but it seems as if the author got tired of writing and just threw trash together for the final 2 books.)

    Clan of the Cave BEar was the first thing I thought of, too. I can't remember if it was the 4th or the 5th book that nearly bored me to death. I recall description after description after description of grassland as they migrated. You'd think she was getting paid by the page what with how bloated with repetitive information her books are. I despise writers who don't trust their readers to remember something they just told you two pages ago! But annnnnyway, I did enjoy the first couple of books for the unusual subject matter and the strong female main character.

    Earth's Children is out. They cooked with grains in at least three books.

    That said, the Grok book already exists[ish]. Buy the Gnoll Credo. Or just read the first couple chapters.

    Honestly, not really... a comic strip maybe, but a novel?
