Audiobook review: Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel narrated by Sandra Burr
Now for what readers can understand--this book was fun, entertaining and extremely unique to any book I've ever read or ever will read I suspect. And I mean unique by it has nothing to do with sci-fi either. It's refreshing from other historical books as it's set in the stone-age. I liked the book even though, and I quote another reviewers comment, "Ayla (the main character) discovers everything aside from cold fusion...". She (Auel) gets you into the culture and life of her world that could have very well been a real occurrence. It's a must read. I didn't rate it higher only because of technical writing issues even my amateur eye caught, not because the story was not fully integrative. I plan on reading the next in the series -- or "remember" it as I listen to it again anyway!
