    " It's hard to believe it took me until now to read this. I give it five stars because I enjoyed it so much, but I know that I'm not judging objectively. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angie | 1/29/2014

    " I have never said this before, but here goes. The movie is WAY better than the book. I never say this either; it was a horrible read. It was painful. I almost gave up, but kept believing there had to be something worthwhile in it for there to be such a fantastic film. Nope. Mark Twain was right to poke fun of the writers of this generation and genre... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben B | 1/28/2014

    " Not going to be among my favorites. The writing varies from wonderful to curious to awkward. The plot and themes are not so much classic was dated. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brigette | 1/26/2014

    " One of my favorite books of all time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Linda | 1/20/2014

    " Couldn't read the entire book last time I attempted, but this time I'm more tolerant of JFC's need for a good editor. Still haven't finished it and don't intend too...way too wordy. Mark Twain was spot on, but ddl saved the day in the movie version. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Wesley | 1/17/2014

    " Liked the setting and history and glad I read it but was quite a slog to read for me. I didn't like it near as well as I did Northwest Passage by Kenneth Roberts.I may read Pioneers later by Cooper but not next for sure. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherry | 1/16/2014

    " action, adventure, romance....not just for kids. follows 'hawkeye' raised by mohicans,and his adopted dad & brother as they escort 2 young ladies through the dangerous territory fought over during the french & indian war. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vinod | 1/16/2014

    " action, action and more action! nothing more and nothing less. better and faster than the movie and definitely more lyrical and comprehensive than the movie. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tedbrust | 1/13/2014

    " All in all I enjoyed this book. The plot was interesting with twists and turns but Cooper seemed to drag parts on. The characterization was often way to long. The ending was predictable, with Cora, Magua, and Uncas dying. The rising action really made the book enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlynne | 12/10/2013

    " So far I am enjoying the discriptive way this book is written. The language is melodic and beautiful. I have wanted to read this book for a very long time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/1/2013

    " What a shallow female character. The women are mere puppets with a thin cover of painted life. It is a compelling story line. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan Long | 11/28/2013

    " Simultaneously a wartime adventure novel, a faithful historical fiction, and one of the greatest expositions on racial equality ever written. A how-to on manly conduct. I will read this to my children and, god willing, my grandchildren. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Troy | 11/26/2013

    " Interesting to read about the times when indians were feared in America as savages. The plot of the book didn't hold my attention as much as I would like. closer to 2.5 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ramona | 11/15/2013

    " Just finished reading this book. I love it for it's imagery and language. Not a fast paced thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori Tanner | 10/22/2013

    " Good book, but when I read this (I was a young adult) I found parts of it to be pretty disturbing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Condliffe | 10/12/2013

    " The old style writing,pathos and romanticism is hard to get used too. But once you adjust it is a great trip well researched and exciting in character. Well worth a trip down memory lane. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patty | 9/29/2013

    " Read this in a cottage by the ocean one night when a gale was blowing so hard, I thought the windows on the west side of the house would blow out. It was certainly diverting! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa B | 6/4/2013

    " Couldn't get through it but I do like Hawkeye. Great character. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bookdaddy | 5/29/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Letterswitch | 3/10/2013

    " Some narrative problems aside, I enjoyed this book much more than I thought I would... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kyra | 2/20/2013

    " good, solid story with a tendency to ramble. it is sometimes hard to hollow what is happening due to the rambling, but i liked it overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Gilbert-Kielkowski | 1/15/2013

    " An awesome book and an awesome author, with beartiful imagery, but I was disappointed that it was so much different from the movie (which I saw before reading the book). No love story! Bah! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elizabeth Rose | 8/30/2012

    " 4.5 stars. Too gut-wrenching, beautiful, and tragic for words. Just read the book. "

  • 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 :) "

About the Author
Author James Fenimore Cooper

James Fenimore Cooper (1789–1851), the first major American novelist, was the son of a wealthy landowner who founded Cooperstown, New York. He attended Yale and served in the navy before turning to writing, winning international fame with The Spy (1821). After The Pioneers (1823), public fascination with the character of Natty Bumppo led him to write a series of sequels that gradually unfold the entire life of the frontier scout.
