After reading this series of books years ago, it was great to have the story read to me by such a skilled person.
nothing like them
this is not for one character-- it's about the time.
it made me wonder !!!!!!!
The continuing story.
Jondalar, identifying with the hero.
Ayla's accent was terribly distracting.
Repeating, Ayla's accent was terribly distracting.
I LOVE ALL OF JEAN M. AUEL BOOKS! I DON'T WANT THE SERIES TO END!
AYLA AND JONDALYN MEETING!
I DON'T REMEMBER IN THE FIRST 2 BOOKS (PLEASURES OF MAKING LOVE!) ONCE AYLA MEETS JONDALYN I WAS TURNED OFF BY ALL THE DISCREET LOVE MAKING! I RATED THE SERIES A 5! BECAUSE, I LOVE THE STORY! I WAS SO DISAPPOINTED ON 3RD OR 4TH BOOK THEY HAVE AYLA WITH A THICK ACCENT! I MISS THE ORIGINAL AYLA WHOEVER NARRATED THE FIRST COUPLE BOOKS! THESE BOOKS I HAVE READ AND LISTENED 2 HAS BEEN 2X'S! I EVEN HAVE SOME OF THE BOOKS! BUT WITH AUDIBLE, I WOULD MUCH RATHER LISTEN! I HOPE AFTER THE SET OF SERIES OF 6 BOOKS END!! PLEASE WRITE MORE BOOKS TO GO WITH SERIES!! I AM ON MY 6TH BOOK AND I ALREADY FEEL SO SAD TO HAVE LISTENED TO THEM ALL! I LOVE THE CHARACTERS! AYLA IS SO UPLIFTING IN ALL THESE BOOKS! WRITE MORE FOR THIS SERIES, BUT LEAVE ALL INTIMATE SEXUAL DETAILS OUT AND BRING BACK AYLA'S ORIGINAL VOICE AS IN FIRST CPL BOOK! THANK YOU! I RECOMMEND THE WHOLE SERIES! SUPERB! I TREASURE MY COMPLETE SERIES!
I have listened to the first 5 books of the series. I will not listen to the sixth. The first 3 were very good. Number 4 was ok. Number 5 was unlistenable to. Sandra Burr was very good. I would listen to another book by her.
Alya's accent. Although it was annoying at first Burr had to include it because Auel introduced it to show Alya was from far away. She did a good job.
Extreem disappointment. Auel passed up many opportunities to add excitement to the thin plot but the storys just ended. For example the discovery of a new cave at the summer camp. It just ended up being another opportunity to sing the Mother's Song - twice.
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.
