I love Myron Bolitar, and Wynn, Esperanza and Big Cindy. These stories have captured and provided hours of entertainment for me. I know that all good things must come to an end, but I hate the thought of these wonderful, richly developed characters fading into oblivion.
none were portrayed as well as Jonathan Marosz, but adequate. Myron especially, took some time getting used to, but the others were fine.
I really enjoy this series. The narrator does a great job with the voices and they stay consistent from volume to volume. Even the mens' voices are consistent, so you immediately recognize who is "talking" before the narration tells you. Great characters, good story lines and steamy sex - who can ask for more?
Her voices are really good, especially the mens' voices - and they are consistent, so you can recognize each one immediately.
I found The Kitchen House difficult to listen to, although compelling, but I don't quite understand the comparisons to The Help. The books are entirely different. The Kitchen House is set during slavery, and it is hard to listen to characters you have come to love being subjected to horrible acts of violence, and the total absence of human decency. Having said that - I did complete the book and was happy at the ending. While The Help was about fighting back against racial inequality, The Kitchen House is about surviving during slavery. Good story, great characters, but not even on the same planet.
Compelling, thought-provoking, memorable

I disagree with the negative comments about Craig Wasson's narration, I felt he did an excellent job. I liked the different voices he used for the characters, and his performance really helped to make George/Jake a
Loved the ending, and could really feel Jake's pain.

It made me think, for days after listening to it.
I did not expect to enjoy this, since I don't do the
I love Lorelei King's narration!
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.
I was hesitant to buy this title because the reviews weren't that good, but after listening to the Shelters of Stone - I wanted to learn what happened to Ayla and Jondalar. I love the detail and feel it is necessary to understanding the story. After all, this is prehistoric times, and the detail really adds a lot to the story. I hope Jean Auel has 1 more novel left in the history of the Earth's Children.
