From the Inside Flap
This novel of awesome beauty and power is a moving saga about people, relationships, and the boundaries of love. Through Jean M. Auel's magnificent storytelling we are taken back to the dawn of modern humans, and with a girl named Ayla we are swept up in the harsh and beautiful Ice Age world they shared with the ones who called themselves The Clan of the Cave Bear.
A natural disaster leaves the young girl wandering alone in an unfamiliar and dangerous land until she is found by a woman of the Clan, people very different from her own kind. To them, blond, blue-eyed Ayla looks peculiar and ugly--she is one of the Others, those who have moved into their ancient homeland; but Iza cannot leave the girl to die and takes her with them. Iza and Creb, the old Mog-ur, grow to love her, and as Ayla learns the ways of the Clan and Iza's way of healing, most come to accept her. But the brutal and proud youth who is destined to become their next leader sees her differences as a threat to his authority. He develops a deep and abiding hatred for the strange girl of the Others who lives in their midst, and is determined to get his revenge.

I'm an avid reader - and was living in the Australian Bush 2000 with a bookcase full - and this was one of the last books I picked up - the title didn't appeal - but I was desperate for something to read.
Once I picked up the first one I couldn't put it down and had to read all 5. I remember putting down the fifth book and feeling disappointed as if the story was cut short and was devastated to hear there were no further books.
Imagine my surprise years later and back in the UK to see the final book - happy at last.
If you don't read these books the you're missing out on something really really special.
The writing is do vivid and so well researched that I quickly became totally lost in it again.
I've just ordered all the others in the series.
My mum is almost blind now, poor love, and was sent it by her local library as a spoken book, so I downloaded it to my Kindle, and was suddenly 30 years younger! I enjoyed it almost as much as I did the first time around and was surprised at how much I remembered (although mum and I did have a running joke about assuming the position, so that may have had something to do with it). We have really enjoyed revisiting our prehistoric past together!
I'm now wading through all of the books (up to book 5) and although sometimes the lists and brilliant inventions can stretch your brain a bit, I am enjoying it...
Have got them all in hardback but thought I would try kindle edition and audible to listen in the car.
BUT, and it's a big but, there is no whispersync so the kindle and audible versions don't keep up with each other. Big disappointment.
Will give more stars if this gets fixed.
Make a new movie or series please for the whole sequel!!!!!
