Clan of the Cave Bear is the first novel in Jean M. Auel's magnificent best-selling epic of life 35,000 years ago. Leave the 21st century and go back to Ice Age Europe. Follow Ayla, a Cro-Magnon child who loses her parents in an earthquake and is adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan. See how the Clan's wary suspicion is gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman, Iza, and its wise holy man, Creb. Immerse yourself in a world dictated by the demands of survival in a hostile environment, and be swept away in an epic tale of love, identity and struggle.

Great story & narrator, too much scientific jargon
No because I'd know what will happen - it wouldn't be so powerful anymore.
She was fantastic, brought out all the emotions and drama perfectly.
It made me shudder or brought tears to my eyes at dramatic turning points or revelations.
Moving, powerful story, except when Ms Auel switches to NatGeo style to explain something about stone age life. She might have weaved such information into the story, or at the very least she should have refrained from using scientific jargon like "occipital bone" or "parietal lobe" or "hypothermia". Each time she started explaining something you were jerked out of the story and felt like you were hearing something taken from a NatGeo article. Even despite all that I'd recommend the book. (I don't suppose Ms Auel will ever re-write the whole saga to remove the scientific mumbo-jumbo).
