    My two sons, ages 14 and 12, read and listened to this book this year. They both loved the book and audible so much they insist it's the favorite for the year. Great voice and great book.

    The Revolutionary War comes alive in this contemporary classic for young adults, a stirring, probing tale full of action and suspense, putting readers right into the heart of the war for independence.

    We loved this book as a family and loved the narrator. Voice that is easy to understand and interesting to follow along with the book. We had several great conversations about this book.

    Orphaned Kit Tyler knows, as she gazes for the first time at the cold, bleak shores of Connecticut Colony, that her new home will never be like the shimmering Caribbean islands she left behind. In her relatives' stern Puritan community, she feels like a tropical bird that has flown to the wrong part of the world, a bird that is now caged and lonely.

    Susan says: "Great characters - a delightful listen!"
    "We loved the book and the audible"
    Overall

    As a mother, a 14yr old boy and a 12yr old boy we all truly enjoyed this book and the narrator. Excellent!

    This action-packed edition of James Fenimore Cooper's famous adventure brings the wilds of the American frontier and the drama of the French and Indian War to vivid life.

    Overall

    The book is always good.

    However, this narration does not follow with the book in a true unabridged way. I've bought 2 books thinking it might be our book that had the differences only to have large skips in paragraphs and pages. I don't know how far past the beginning this lasts. I wouldn't allow my sons to continue with this audible since we spent so much of the beginning trying to find where he was jumping. Now I'll have to buy yet another Last of the Mohicans audible in hopes of it being a truly unabridged after having bought 2 books trying to solve the problem.

    Very disappointed.

    Early one morning in 1754, the stillness of Charlestown, New Hampshire, is shattered by shrill war whoops and the terror of an Indian raid. Young Miriam Willard, on a day which had promised new happiness, finds herself instead a captive on a forest trail, caught up in the ebb and flow of the French and Indian War.

    Rebecca Huff says: "Exciting-- unexpected twists-- ended too abruptly"
    "Excellent"
    Overall

    Good book and good narration voice. The voice was easy to understand and moderate in variations in sounds. We felt it wasn't over or under done. The book wasn't as interesting to us as Witch of Blackbird Pond, but it was good.
