Clan of the Cave Bear
The Mammoth Hunters
Valley of the Horses
and Shelters of Stone
They are the most amazing books, they carry a story all the way through in such a fantastic way of a cromagnon little girl being brought up by a clan of neathanderals. Have a look on google and get an idea of what they are about.
I just could not put these down. The story is magical and so beautifully written. Took ages for me to stop thinking about them, actually, might get them out and read them again.
Am reading a Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini - it is about a generation of women in Afghanistan and their struggles through life (puts some of my own problems into perspective I can tell you!). He also wrote the Kite Runner which has to be one of the best books I have ever read.
I used to read books , read newspapers and watch TV before my breakup. Since then none of those interest me.
I saw the ultimate irony the other day. For £189 you can buy an electronic book..same size and shape as a book. It held several books and opened like a book only the pages were on a small LCD screen. Seems you could get a lot of books for £189 even if is environmentally friendly !!!
I can assure you that you will love it - if you haven't read it get the Kite Runner too - it was his first novel and is just amazing. Another great read is The Memory Keepers Daughter by Kim Edwards. (Another Richard & Judy Book Club Fan!!)
