Earth's Children #2: Valley of Horses
I just finished reading the second novel in the Earth's Children series by Jean A. Auel. I enjoyed it better than Clan of the Cave Bear.
However, I had the same problems with it like with the first book. First of all, it was sometimes hard for me to follow along with what was happening due to the style of narrative. There was also very little characterization and character growth. The story also lacked a climax, something that was present in Clan of the Cave Bear.
