In danger of Indian raids at all times, a small party of colonial Americans flee before the British and their Indian allies during the French and Indian wars. Hawkeye, the scout, is the great figure in this classic story; the climax comes in the tragic encounter between two rival Indians, Magwa and Uncas, the last Mohican chief.

    " The only book where I was assigned to read it and I tore each page as I finished so I was never tempted to read it again. I did, however, enjoy looking at Daniel Day Lewis in the movie. "

    " The description was extensive; the story line somewhat overpowered by the details of the event and surroundings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hasanuddin | 2/3/2014

    " Indian bertikai karena imperialis... Indian berperang juga karena kolonialis... Indian terdesak akibat penjajahan. Semuanya hanya ditutup atas nama eksplorasi dunia luar. Perang Eropa yang melelahkan, bergeser mencari tumbal: Lahan Baru. Kekejaman indian yang ditampilkan tidak sepadan dengan gelombang pembantaian yang dilakukan "pendatang". Penduduk asli turun peringkat menjadi tidak berkasta. Akan sedikit berharga kalau bisa bertindak dan berposisi sebagai pesuruh. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben Vogel | 2/2/2014

    " One of those rare instances when the film (Mann) is much better than the book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brigette | 1/28/2014

    " One of my favorite books of all time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyn | 1/27/2014

    " I was always a big fan of the 1992 Michael Mann film starring Daniel Day Lewis, and so I finally read the original. First of all, that movie is loosely based upon the book and it turns out Mann never even read the original but based his film on the 1936 film script. Cooper published the work in 1826 so there is that florid, adjectiv...e laden prose that reads like a thesaurus smeared with molasses. But for its time I can see how it was viewed as a masterpiece and can definitely see how so much literature since has been influenced by this story. Was Hawkeye the original American hero? Independent, resourceful, rugged and casually violent, he may have been the archetype for many literary characters and may have done much to influence American culture as well. The book is also graphically violent, several scenes could have been lifted from a Cormack McCarthy novel, but Cooper was probably portraying an accurate depiction of a rough time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laurelyn | 1/26/2014

    " The book was rather wordy for me, as it is commonly critiqued for by modern readers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kenyan | 1/15/2014

    " Though there are some long passages, most of this book moves along nicely. I probably never would have read it though, if it hadn't been for my Am - Lit class! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keith Zimmerman | 1/10/2014

    " Excellent book! Loved it and the characters. Hawkeye is somewhere between mystical and plain amazing. It is a very long hard read that goes much deeper than the movie ever thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bethany | 12/11/2013

    " This was an excellent story. It has a great story line. However, sometimes Mr. Cooper's writing is a little bit confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 12/7/2013

    " I hated this book up until I watched the movie. The movie made the book seem like a work of art...which it is, considering it's been on the Classics list since...forever. If you can follow the writing, the plot is actually pretty exciting. The ending is sad though...lots of people die. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lelli | 10/17/2013

    " Boring. A good book if you want to fall asleep very quickly. Two stars only thanks to the last fifty or so pages with finally some other action then walking in the forest. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 8/21/2013

    " This is a decent book. It is noteworthy for me, because it joins "Wiseguy" as one of only two books where I found the movie to be better than the book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Morris | 6/2/2013

    " Utterly unreadable stilted prose. Only managed to get about 1/8 of the way through and had to stop after a two chapter description of a location. I fully understand Mark Twain's disdain for the author's work. Avoid like the plague! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Myrna | 3/18/2013

    " It was hard to get through the first 3 or 4 chapters ... after that it was very good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judy | 6/1/2012

    " I'm reading The Greater Journey by David McCullough and I was interested in his descriptions of the time that James Fenimore Cooper spent in Paris in the 1830s, so I decide to reread this American classic. It's about what I remember. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Book Him Danno | 4/10/2012

    " I read this in high school and I remember it was so boring and I had to hold my eyelids open to finish it. Now I may find it more interesting, but too many books to read and not enough time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rasier | 1/6/2012

    " Dont ever read this book ever!!!! it is not good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Martine | 6/12/2011

    " How many adjectives can be used in one sentence? I do not like Cooper's style at all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mogi | 5/14/2011

    " I started this book three times and finished it once. It took a lot of commitment to get through it. I ended up loving the story but hating having to wade through his swamp-like prose. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 5/2/2011

    " Good story, but a very SLOW read. This is a case where the movie gets to the heart of the story and cuts out the unnecessary stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 4/27/2011

    " Great book, lot of action, sad ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/24/2011

    " Read after seeing the movie. The movie is very fast paced, the book is not.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 4/17/2011

    " Tough read, as it was written in the early 1800's, but once you get into the style and rhythm it's good. A nice change of pace. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Ann | 4/5/2011

    " I think you could read this if you really want to - it's a good genre piece. A bit wordy though- whew! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shellie | 3/27/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book. Now I need to watch the movie again because it has been too long since I watched it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 George | 3/24/2011

    " This rating is for the Daniel Day-Lewis film, not the turgid Fenimore Cooper novel. The inspired acting, spectacular scenery, and gorgeous sound track brought the book to life. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rasier | 3/19/2011

    " Dont ever read this book ever!!!! it is not good. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tamara | 3/12/2011

    " This is probably my least favorite book I've ever had to read. I read it the summer before my junior year of high school, and I still remember the pain of trying to get through it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Virginia | 3/9/2011

    " it was a very hard book to read but when i finally got into it I did enjoy it esoecially towards the end :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bookdaddy | 3/8/2011

    " The writing style is very old school. You need to concentrate when reading the book but JFC is a very good story teller. For anyone who likes books about character development, morals and values and the meaning of life. It'll make you think about the things that are important to us. "
