    I would like to be as Ayla. My partner and me desire to have a daughter like her.
    Since I read the The Clan of the Cave Bear for the first time I felt in love, and everyday this love rises and rises.
    I think the book series is one of the most beautiful stories of the unviersal literature, and as a scientist I think is a very brilliant work.

  2. Jennifer says:

    I think I should be an ambassador because I already act as one. I keep all the books in my car. I got Painted Caves on the day it was released. I also buy copies of Cave Bear whenever I see them and give them away to strangers after telling them how awesome the series is!

    <3 Loved the series since first day! Recommended it to ALL my friends, trying to get them to read it in English. As I did! But they all wanted it in Swedish! AAAH!

    I liked it when all books in all countries, translated an original could be bought at the same time. <3

    Loves the series, would like more! ;)

    Ayla is a role model for every woman. She’s strong but kind, smart but humble, beautiful but simple.
