Just read the last of the Earth's Children series by Jean Auel. There are I think five books in the series. First one is Clan of the Cave Bear. There series is about a girl that was orphaned and raised by Neandrathals and her many adventures thru out her life. It's not as silly as it sounds and the author did years of research in writing the books.... Ive read the series at least twice.
Shogun and its follow up series of books by James Clavel is probably my favorite book,,,, read that at least 3 times... LOL
