I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
I read all 3 novels over 25 years ago. I don't have the patience to write a proper review but this listen is great. Do you love history? How did we evolve?,,,,, presented in a totally entertaining way,,,,, without the boredom of typical boring history classes. Men, understand women in a different way from thousands of years of history. See women in awe and love and respect. I am now in the second book and can't wait for the 3rd. You may love this series!
the best value on this website. The reading is fabulous, the story long and engaging and most importantly, EDUCATIONAL!!! Yes, there are things here that will make you think "no way."....but then that fleeting moment is gone, caught up in some twist of the plot or some insight that the author has made about culture at the time, and off you go again. Highest recommendation. Now, if I could only locate the rest of this series on this website! [=
this is the first in a series of wonderful, fabulous books taking ayla from 5 years old to her 20's. where is she now, jean?
I really came to love all the characters. I also love the fact that the author really did her research and you learn how things were done in pre-historic times.
Ayala, learning to hunt and use the sling.
Ayala she is strong, smart, honest, loyal,and beautiful.
The births and the deaths.
I have listened to this series 4 times and love it just as much each time.
I have enjoyed listening to this book. I find the story itself interesting but the writing is very plain and the narrator, as well as the sound quality of the recordings, could be much better.
I have listened to the first 4 books in this series, and the first book is definitely the best.
It felt like an anthropology text revised to be a story. The story did not grab me, and the characters did not make me like them. But I finished it, cause I paid for it...
Good story, much detail, maybe a little too much detail but I did work while listening. I liked this audio better than the book. .
