"We still read Cooper today because he was the first of our authors to seize upon the dramatic possibilities of that unfallen western world that stands at the beginning of our national life." (J. W. Ward)
This is a great story, though not quite as good as the earlier Leatherstocking Tales. The problem is the narrator. First, he seems to be in an incredible hurry. I get nervous just listening to him. He reads at a very fast rate. Second, there is a good deal of ambient noise including the narrators snorting and slurping. Likely this is caused by the rapidity with which he reads.
Other than that, he has a fine voice with good inflections and interest. He jsut needs to slow down.
The person reading this book is horrible!! What is his hurry? I can't understand half of what he is saying and the deep breaths, what is going on? Very disappointing, I have listened to many fine audio stories and this is the very very very worst narrator that I have ever heard, I do hope he has found a different occupation to spare any future audiences the pain of listening to him.
Good story. Sad to have the series come to an end. I enjoyed reading the series in chronological order rather than the order written.
