    Ayla, one of the most remarkable and beloved heroines in contemporary fiction, continues to explore the world and the people around her with curiosity, insight, and, above all, courage. As the story opens, Ayla, Jondalar, and their infant daughter, Jonayla, are living with the Zelandonii in the Ninth Cave - a shelter of stone. Ayla has been chosen as an acolyte and has embarked on the arduous task of training to become a spiritual leader.

    Overall

    I normally love a LONG audio book - listen to them while out working on the farm - and I had read the other Earth's Children books but I am seriously doubtful I will finish this one. Maybe reading is a better way to go as you can skim over the so and so begat so and so in blah blah cave. Having to listen to all this dreck in the reader's rather wooden voice and cheesy accent is nearly unbearable. I am finding the dialog unrealistic ( how many times, from how many characters do we need to hear that giving water to a dead lion is a sacred tradition ) and boring. I haven't gotten very far in, hence the two stars-who knows, it may get better...but after several hundred audio books over the years, this may be the first I don't finish ( but I probably will finish it-farming is possibly even more boring than this book)!
