The sharing of knowledge between Ayla and The Others, all over the series, actually.
Ayla, which in this book showed a very marked "foreign" accent!
It's also a very heart-warming and intriguing book for those who have close ties and care for animals.
Love the characters Auel has in this series. Sandra Burr does an excellent job with her reading. Auel fails the reader when she does not have the primary characters reunite with the son born to Ayla (sp?). Readers following this series of books from the beginning want to know what eventually happened to her son.
The performance of Burr was very well done. Her voice inflections were accomplished with regard for each of the characters.
Yes. To follow-up on Ayla's clan and son. And to put to death Broc (sp?)
this is one of my favorite books I read each book as it came out and when ever a new one came out i reresad the series but when I found this last one came out I ordered audio book as I have little time to read but I was downloading it when my husband came home with the last book. so i read it then I listened to the audio books I was not disapointed. it is a great series and to listen to them one after another in order was wonderful. my husband teases me cause I read them all but the audio book is quite another experience.I have read all the books and passed them to my father who has read them all he has an e reader and i am definately going to order this for him as well i truly think he will appreciate it as he really enjoy the books and told my husband when the last one came oout to get it for me.
I liked them all everything just fits so well together.
well with this book ya laugh in places and cry in others . it was vary well writen book and the performance was vary well done and true to the story and book.
I have probably not been fair in my assessment of the performance as it was vary well done but I had read the books previously and tend to creat a world and immage in my mind. the only reason i did not give it 5 stars is i felt that Jondalars voice was way off beat but that is something I had in my head before I listened to the book.. so if that is my only complaint of the performance I think they done extremely good.
I read the first volumes of the Earth's Children in print, and this was my first audio version, and I really enjoyed it. The narration was great, and I loved the detail, which I tended to skip over when reading the print version. Overall, a great story.
Yes. Just because I can. I have been following this series since the day the first book, The Clan of the Cave Bear, was published. For those of you old enough to know what I'm talking about, you also remember that was before any type of technology was even a twinkle in daddy's eye, when we would faithfully buy our copy of the books we waited for, read them like starved shipwrecks, then promptly start them again at a more leisurely pace to absorbe the nuances we'd missed on our first gallop through. Then we could graciously lend them to our trusted friends, people known to return our favorite books, and begin the long wait until the next book in the series comes out. And that is how we learned the art of patience. . . . .horrible, isn't it???
As far as I am concerned, the series is now finished for me. The journey has come full circle, I do not wish to continue on any more road trips. I myself am now older and tired. We started out young, now it is tme to rest. I am glad I read it, but now we part ways. I have loved you long, and loved you well. Thank you for the many hours of enjoyment.
not better, but very good. Not good that Sandra burr gives the main character a new voice in book 5. Since the same narrator reads all six books, i thought it was wrong and disappointing that the main character suddenly has a new voice and new accent. Especially if you listen to them back to back.
None compare. This is book #5 in a 6 book series, Sandra burr narrates them all, But in book 5, she gives the main female character a new voice, and accent that she never had in the first four books, i do not like that. This Ayla sounds different than the character ive been listning to the last couple weeks

Too many to mention. Great story.

Based on some of the reviews, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy Auel's book as an audio version, but I loved it. I read the first 4 books in the series the old fashioned way, but the narration added a lot to the experience. Ayla is a fascinating character, and I enjoyed the continuation of her story.
I love the Earth Children! I will never overlook one! I am still waiting for the impossible and for the clan to rejoin Ayla!
I read the first 5 books about 15 years ago. Once the new book came out I bought them all on Audible (and they were all available in the last couple of months) so that I could refresh myself. I love the series but was disappointed with Sandra Burr's new accent for Ayla in book 5! WHY?? Still love the series even with all the repetition :)
