    After their epic journey across Europe, Ayla and Jondalar have reached his home, the Ninth Cave of the Zelandonii, the old stone-age settlement in the region known today as southwest France. Jondalar's family greet him warmly, but they are initially wary of the beautiful young woman he has brought back, with her strange accent and her tame wolf and horses.

    Story

    While the performance of Sandra Burr is on par, as this series moves towards its conclusion, the story itself is not as strong and powerful as it was when it began.

    This story is the 2nd installment in the series. It is vastly different from the first book, but continues the story. Sandra Burr still does a wonderful job telling this story.

    Sandra Burr does her usual great performance, and the plot is still great in the 3rd installment of the series. There are a few plot twists I felt were out of character, but overall still a great story.

    Here is the saga of a people who call themselves the Clan of the Cave Bear; how they lived; the animals they hunted; the great totems they revered. But mostly it is the story of Ayla, the girl they found and raised, who was not like them. To the Clan, her fair looks make her different - ugly.

    Story

    I have followed this series since the 80s. Jean Auel tells a wonderful story. Sandra Burr does a great job of telling this story-which can be difficult with the culture of the people. This is a fantastic start to a great series.

    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.

    Story

    I have been a fan of this series since the beginning. But this last book seemed almost like it was pumped out to fill a contract obligation. The audio part of it is good. No complaints there, but the story itself is a bit of a letdown after following this series for as long as I have.

    Story
    (154085)

    At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

    Julie W. Capell says: "I’m sorry I waited so long to read this book."

    Story

    This is an awesome story. Wil Wheaton is the perfect match to do the audiobook. If you liked anything about the 80s and are feeling nostalgic, this book is for you. Wil nails the content. It was like this story was made for him to tell.

    This is a tale of sorrow, a tale of survival, a tale of one man's search for meaning in his universe, and how that search, and the indomitable will that drove it, gave birth to a legend.

    Story

    Not only is this the best crafted story I have encountered in print, Nick Podehl sets the bar very high of my expectations for all audio books. This man could read me to sleep every night. His voice is excellent, the accents he does on mark. The pace at which he reads is perfect. There isn't one negative I have to say about this book or audiobook.
