I had not read "The Last of the Mohicans" since I was about ten years of age, many, many, many years ago. I had forgotten it's sing song quality in tone. How very beautiful. I recommend this book to anyone, especially a person interested in the early American traditions of white and red races. It reads as a novel and yet as a history book. I was enthralled anew.
Nothing like the movie
If you think this is the worst book ever written, perhaps you shouldn't have dared to stray so far from your Tom Clancy/Danielle Steele little world into the land of early American literature. Though the writing here is extremely flowery even for its time period, the story itself is quite exciting. For those who liked the movie, this has almost nothing in common with it. There's little romance and lots of action.
As one who grew up in this area of Glens Falls (note the spelling), Fort Edward, Fort William Henry and Lake George, it brought many images clear to my mind. I had always wanted to read this book, and this e-book gave me the easiest opportunity to do so!
BTW: The cave mentioned at Glens Falls is now called "Cooper's Cave" - in honor of the author!
By I Know A Good Book
I know a good book when I read one, and this certainly isn't one. Possibly the worst book ever written. If you're looking for a book to read for pleasure, look somewhere else
The Last of the Mohicans
The movie with Daniel Day Lewis was great, but the original story is even better. Cooper is great in his depictions of Colonial America, the locales and intrepid woodsmen!!
