But when Auel gives the voice to Ayla, her stream of conscience is even worse than the droning of the main narrator. Look at those pussy willows.

The Clan of the Cave Bear
The water should be warm enough to swim in soon. I wonder why no one else likes to swim? The sea tastes salty, not like the stream, but I feel so light in it. I can hardly wait until we go fishing.
I think I love sea fish best of all, but I like eggs, too.
This book could easily be pages without losing anything. Another problem — showing… and then telling.
The clan would benefit if all the hunters had your skill with the sling, Zoug. This is exactly what the dialogue implied! Auel, are you disrespecting me? She had no other standard of measure. Unfortunately, babies are not actually made by the battling of random tribe totems, but you're going to figure that out anyway, because you're a Homo sapien and your brain is capable of intuitive leaps based on observable data, but anyway. You were saying? He looked around, the down at the woman sitting at his feet, waiting with unruffled composure for him to get on with his rebuke and be on his way.
She's worse than ever since she became a Woman, he thought What can I make her do?

Wait, she's a woman now, isn't she? There's something I can make her do. Broud gave her a signal, and Ayla's eyes flew open. It was unexpected. Iza told her men only wanted that from women they considered attractive; she knew Broud thought she was ugly He signaled her again, imperiously, to assume the position so he could relieve his needs, the position for sexual intercourse Ayla knew what was expected Many young girls of the Clan were pierced by pubescent boys who lingered in the limbo of not-yet-men, before their first kill; and occasionally a man, beguiled by a young coquette pleased himself with a not-quite-ripe female Within a society that indulged in sex as naturally as they breahted, Ayla was still a virgin.
The young woman felt awkward; she knew she must comply, but she was flustered and Broud was enjoying it.

He was glad he had thought of it; he had finally broken down her defenses. It excited him to see her so confused and bewildered, and aroused him Broud got impatient, pushed her down, and moved aside his wrap exposing his organ, thick and throbbing She's so ugly, she should be honored, no other man would have her, he thought angrily, grabbing at his wrap to move it out of the way as his need grew But as Broud closed in on her, something snapped. She couldn't do it!
She just couldn't.
Her reason left her. It didn't matter that she was supposed to obey him. She scrambled to her feet and started to run.
Broud was too quick for her. He grabbed her, pushed her down, and punched her in the face, cutting her lip with his hard fist. He was beginning to enjoy this. Too many times had he restrained himself when he wanted to beat her, but there was no one to stop him here.
And he had justifiable reason-she was disobeying him, actively disobeying him She was nearly unconscious when he threw her over on her face, feverishly ripped her wrap aside, and spread her legs. With one hard thrust, he penetrated deeply.
The Clan of the Cave Bear
She screamed with pain. It added to his pleasure. He lunged again, drawing forth another painful cry, then again, and again. The intensity of his excitement urged him on, rising quickly to unbearable peaks.
With a last hard drive that extracted a final agonized scream, he ejected his built up heat. Advertisement Well! Smell you, Nancy Drew! But I do think you can differentiate the books from other fur-wrap-rippers by the fact that The Clan of the Cave Bear is not only about some overheated welter where both the earth and the beings upon it rumble with ecstasy and agony and split on a regular basis. On a fundamental level, it's about sex not for sex's sake but for how it interacts with our lives - how Ayla suffers to keep the baby that results from Broud's raping her and her status as hunter as medicine woman, and how, in the next few novels, she strives to find a partner not only of her own kind, but of her own kind-an equal partner that appreciates Ayla the species and Ayla the woman.When she regains consciousness, the girl is shocked to find that her rescuers are physically quite different from people with whom she is familiar: Men can beat women and be completely justified--this happens to Ayla quite a few times in the book.
Iza, the wise medicine woman, feels sorry for the little girl, all alone , that nobody cares about and lifts her up, carrying the orphan away, she is saved. Ayla grows up among the clan and struggles to find her place. Apart from physical differences there are mental and cultural differences between the Clan and The Others.
