A well told story of two young people in Europe during WW Il. Rich with imagery, the writer is subtle, allowing the reader to learn the characters. The reader's voice is lilting. He does a nice job of moving a sometimes slow story along.
Come on Jean Auel--really! For those of us who have following Ayla for 20+ years, this is a letdown. The story languished . I understand that the caves are really cool. but there was no plot--the story was more of a documentary. I've waited years to learn about Durk...what is happening with the Clan--is that in the next book???
Why mention the scar and an attack, but then not give any details--shall we just make up our own story? What's the secret? Seems she draws draw more to it by the secrecy. Loved the part about Tina's father--could so relate.
I especially liked the "old" Jacob reader. Very well told story--heartwarming tale of the enduring human (and animal) spirit. Don't hesitate to get this one.
Good conflict, characters and the reader is superb. I definitely recommend this book--love Mickie Haller.
The book reads like a scientific report--some of the info. and studies could be interesting, but the reader did not rehearse, so the flow of the material
is halting and boring.
