    Clan of the Cave Bear is the first novel in Jean M. Auel's magnificent best-selling epic of life 35,000 years ago. Leave the 21st century and go back to Ice Age Europe. Follow Ayla, a Cro-Magnon child who loses her parents in an earthquake and is adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan. See how the Clan's wary suspicion is gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman, Iza, and its wise holy man, Creb. Immerse yourself in a world dictated by the demands of survival in a hostile environment, and be swept away in an epic tale of love, identity and struggle.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Ender's Game to be better than the print version?

    Yes, as the author says that his intended media is indeed a spoken one.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The use of real aspects that we all have felt as children and as adult, and how Card seems to combined the two different world in the mind of Ender. The twists are brilliant!


    What about Stefan Rudnicki and Harlan Ellison ’s performance did you like?

    Real real good! They enhance the experience without getting in the way of the story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me gasp at the end... Not sure if that's extreme though?


    Any additional comments?

    Don't make the mistake of thinking this is a child's book and therefore would be a book worth reading. I almost decided against Enders Game for precisely that reason, and am very very glad that I indeed did but it! It's full of philosophical treats...
