I just got the 5th book in the Earth's Children Series read by Sandra Burr. The others were amazing, I just don't understand why Ms. Burr decided to voice Ayla as though she were a Russian Spy with a speech impediment in this one. Jondalar doesn't sound the same and she doesn't even pronounce the names of the Sharamudoi, Kreb, and Durk the same. It's very hard to deal with since I am listening the books back to back.

Been listening to the whole set of books 1 - 4 from audible.com since Audible just made them available. Then just started this audiobook #5 The Shelter of Stones, and found that they changed Ayla's voice, adding an accent. Why was Ayla changed from how she was portrayed in the other four audiobooks? It's hard to understand the accent, and sorta ruins the reading of this book. Please don't have an accent for Ayla on the last audiobook!

I downloaded the first book in the series and really loved it. It was disappointing that books 2-4 are not available but I enjoyed the first one so much that I decided to download this, the fifth in the series. It was a big mistake! I'm no prude but I felt that the 'blue' sections were completely out of place and unnecessary. I did not warm to the narrator either but this was probably because the first one was so well read. The story felt stilted and forced and it felt more like a reaming off of historical facts than an interesting read with a great protagonist. The constant recapping of the previous books was also tedious and jarring. All-in-all - not a pleasant download for me!
loved the books and love the audiobook...with there was the rest of the books to...
