I wish I could read it again for the first time.
I didn t mind that it devolved devolved, get it hehehe anyway, I didn t mind that the book turned out to be porn for women who pretend they don t like that sort of thing because its soooo low brow, but what I DID mind was that it became CLICH porn Oooo he s a man whose been with tons of women but never felt True Love Oooo she s a woman who s been raped in a way sanctioned by her culture and never had an orgasm Ahhhhh he s a man who yearns to love a woman who is his equal Ahhh she s a woman who is good at everything but good sex Oooooh he teaches her what real sex feels like and gets her off on the first round Oooooh they have simultaneous orgasms the first time they Make Love Ahhhh he s so big He hurts women with his h This one goes down as my all time, 1, best read I learned SO many things and gained strength and independence than I though possible The story is this, Ayla is cast out from her family, leaving behind her only son, to survive in the ice age and the wilderness alone She has the knowledge of a medicine woman, and the skills of a sling to assist her survival But the greatest challenge is the loneliness She teaches herself to hunt with spears, to make knives, baskets, and implements for cooking And along with her, I learned how to do all of these things How to test plant foods for nutritional or medicinal properties How to survive She adopts a horse foal after killing her dam and then adopts a baby cave lion The three of them make a family, and they give her the only companionship the empty icy world has to offer Until finally after 3 years of emptiness, she meets h Ayla s adventures volume two The writing is as bad as it was in volume one I detailed all the problems I had with it here with the addition of hackneyed sex scenes It makes me almost sad that generations of young girls had their introduction to porn literature through this crap It s enough to put you off of both, sex and reading.
You might wonder why I read the second volume when the first volume was so bad It s a good question and I m not sure myself I ordered it on before I had the time to really think about it I guess, my favourite parts in the first volume were the survival bits I liked when Ayla was all alone and had to learn to manage on her own And since the first volume ends with Ayla being kicked out of the C I ve never seen a series take such a downturn so fast When we last saw Ayla in The Clan of the Cave Bear, she had been banished, sentenced to death by the clan leader, Broud, who hated her The Valley of the Horses takes place immediately after, as Ayla begins to wander the steppes in pursuit of her people Eventually, she settles in a valley populated with horses While she is there, she befriends a horse and ekes out a living.
