I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
It was a very dry, very detailed read. It could have been trimmed a bit here and there, and I have two of the four remaining books in the series, so I'll continue. Perhaps now that Jondalar and Ayla have found more people, things might pick up.
