I have listened to this twice and still hear new things.
The description of the Clan gathering in part 3 is brought to life.
The abuse of Ayla by Brun's son, which caused her pregnancy.
Interesting, Intriguing, Captivating. (requires minimum 15 words but asks only for 3 to describe it ???)
I don't read many novels so don't really have a comparison.
This series is my first experience with audio books, nothing to compare with.
Although it may have moved a little slow still kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to see (or guess) what was coming next.
I was on a long trip with a friend recently and he had book 6 playing and I got interested in the story and adventure so after the trip I had only heard about the first 12 or so chapters I decided to purchased the audio book for book 6 so I could hear the finish.
I listened nearly non stop till the end and enjoyed it so much I felt I needed to know the whole story and bought book 2. Again listened to the whole book over one weekend. Knowing the outcome of book 6 did not distract from my enjoyment of book 1. I could see how she began to learn the things that were important to her and the plot of the book. I really enjoyed hearing Jean's interpretation of what life may of been like for the people of that time and had many thoughts to myself of how someone like me could have coped if that would have been the life I had to live. Loved the book and now on to book 2.
Mom, wife, reader. I love reading a book I don't want to put down.
Good book. It was interesting, but I think Jane could have made it a bit shorter. Sometimes she gets too into the detail of how things were done and why.
I read this book years ago when it came out. I still find the story and details amazing. This book keeps you rivited from the first page. I found it almost impossible to put down. I read it initally in one night, and ended up awake all night to finish it. I can't imagine not having this and the remaining books in my life. A real gem!
I like the fact that your shown Alya's growth and becoming an independent character despite tremendous odds of being raised by those who cannot understand her in any way. She comes out shining despite odd given her.
Any in which Ayla has a
I couldn't take my eyes off of it. It made me cry, & laugh
Yes I have already done this.
When Alya has learned to use the sling and the clan found out because she saves a child from a animal trying to drag it off.
Yes! I have over 40 audible books on my I pod, and have it with me at all times. I'll listen to while cooking, cleaning, or traveling.
I have listen to all 6 books in this series and liked them all!!!
I loved the research and character development that went into recreating the world of the Clan Bear for our understanding. The full portrait of the world at that time, how the people in that world interacted with their environment and with each other.
The strongest moments in the story are the two times that Ayla was banished from the Clan. Her strength of spirit to survive what was paramount to a death sentence when she did the only thing she could do to insure that her son would survive, the first time when he was born and the second when she was permanently sent away from the Clan when the leadership of the Clan changes and a devastating earthquake hits the land.
I had not heard Sandra Burr before this book and was pleased to see that she narrates the rest of the series.
This is a story of survival, the ability to adapt to a changing world.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Clan of the Cave Bear and being reminded of how special it still is after reading it so many years ago.
I had this book, the hardback copy, for a long time. I had heard it was a good read, but the book was so heavy I never picked it up to read. I sold my copy. Downloaded as Kindle copy and it became a simple read. I, also. downloaded the Audible version to listen to as I read. The voice of Sandra Burr was melodic and kept my interest, even when my eyes got tired.
This is deep enough that I must continue into the next book: The Valley of the Horses. Already downloaded so that my memory of the end of the last book will fade. I will not say more than that for fear of committing a spoiler.
Glad I will now own this so I can go back and re-read it sometime.
The insights, as they are unfolded
The Mogul suddenly realizes why the girl was sent to them.
The point where Brun acknowledges the spirit of Ayla, despite the tradition of the clan and spells it out to Braud;
I read the book some years ago and I could not let go of the memory. I just had to listen to it again yet the thrill was like the first time.
Taking you back in time.
Learning how the cave men lived.
She did a good job on all the characters.
Made me cry several times.
Definitely would recommend it - kept your interest very well; the narrator was great!
Liked all of the detail about how the people lived.
She made it seem like you were right there in the story.
Yes, but it's a bit too long for one sitting, unless you're sitting a long time!
