    "This review is specific for this edition."

    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.

    "There's a reason this is a classic"

    I saw the movie first so had to get over a disconnect with the way the movie plot diverges from the book. In the end the book won me over and I'm sorry that the movie didn't include the assinine but delightful singing preacher! Will definitely add more Cooper to my reading list after I finish with Dickens.

    "Excellent!"

    A great classic full of adventure and heart. The reader does an excellent job of portraying different characters and handling accents and languages.I hope to find more books read by him.

    "The Last of the Mohicans - Not Like the Last Movie"

    Overall, I enjoyed the book but it was very different from the last movie made from the book, which in reality, was adapted from the screenplay of another movie. Unlike the movie, there was less conflict between the characters and the language more poetic from the English speakers. Different people die or die under different circumstances, and there was one character entirely not present in the film. Both versions are enjoyable and I recommend both; a true case where the adaption was equal to the original but for different reasons and had different strengths. I assume the book was somewhat accurate about the Native American tribes since the author lived or was in area when he wrote. I did not know he wrote several books about the same character.

    "Demanding!"
    Any additional comments?

    In the old fashioned manner, each chapter of this novel written in 1825 is introduced with a quotation from another work, often by Shakespeare. In general, the writing style is quite formal and flowery, actually outright verbose. This makes it rather laborious to read and strikes a vivid contrast with the relative simplicity of the plot and of the characters. These, in a very confusing way, are often given many names. For example, the same person is called Natty Bumppo, Hawkeye, Oeil de Faucon and La Longue Carabine, all within a few paragraphs.

    There are definite incongruities in the plot. Beaver huts for instance are mistaken for a human settlement and a man disguised as a bear actually fools Indians who of course have lived in the woods all their lives! There are also anachronisms, such as referring constantly to the Canadas in the plural, whereas in 1757, when the novel is set, before the British Conquest, there was of course only one.

    This book's interest lies mainly with its North American setting and the fact it was one of the earliest novels to be written here. To the author's credit, it must be pointed out that he displays much respect for the Indians' wisdom and way of life, in marked contrast with general opinion later in the 19th century.

    Still, its qualities are not enough to make this work truly of major interest today.

    "Magnificent"

    Cooper is masterful. His tale, chock full of dialogue and beautifully descriptive prose spins a riveting story of love, victory, and tragedy that is hard to put down.

    "Still a classic."

    The sytax of the story makes it a little tricky to follow but overall very good.

    I would recommend this book.

    "A credit not well spent"

    Not what I was expecting to be honest. If you're looking for romance or adventure look elsewhere. If you're looking for history read a history book. The prose is far too formal and I found myself skipping back more often then I'm happy to, and then having to refer to online chapter summaries when events still weren't clear. By chapter 8 I realise I'd stopped listening. One for American Literature students only. I realise this is a review of the book and not the audiobook though so I'll just add that the sound quality and narration are both fine.
