    " The plot of this book was more simple than I would have expected of a book from it's time. I did thoroughly enjoy it however. It would appear to be the first western ever written even though it took place in upper New York state. One of the reasons that I enjoy old American classics is due to the fact that there is no revisionist history to deal with which is now so very common. Few people seem to recognize that 100 years [maybe only ten years] from now we will be considered heathen. There is no editorial about values of the past several months from CNN, Fox or MSNBC included. It is simply a tale of the times, concerns of the times and an insight to a period when some values were superior to ours and some were not. My greatest respect to the "last Mohican". "

    " I really had to force myself through this book. This type of book is just not for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 N8te13 | 2/16/2014

    " The story is great, however the blatant racism is so distracting. Everything in this book is defined by the character's ideas about race and "blood." It has a strong centralized story that is filled with daring do, disguises, oration, gun fighting, chases. escapes, love, nature, magic, and much more. Highly recommended. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carlynne | 2/1/2014

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel | 1/19/2014

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rob Chamberlain | 1/15/2014

    " Action packed. Good story and much better than the movie :) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Adrian | 1/10/2014

    " I gave up. Couldn't do it. It was just too awful. The Indians spoke as if their dialog was plagiarized from an encyclopedia entry. The other characters were even worse. The writing style is so stultified and blocky that it's often a serious labor to wade through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Laurel Wicke | 1/3/2014

    " Can you believe I was an English/ed major and had never read this book? For shame! I know its history and importance in the development of American lit, but I have to say, Mr. Cooper is a bit on the wordy side for me. The story is an amazing tale, but it sometimes gets bogged down by all the voluble description. But, then again, Cooper has written a classic keystone of American lit. and I...have...not. So what do I know? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martha Johnson | 1/1/2014

    " Totally great -- in its context. The language tripped me up more than I thought it would. Stylized and dated. But, didn't matter. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amy | 12/19/2013

    " Wordy and boring. I agree with Twain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alyson Bowers | 12/10/2013

    " This can be very long-winded, but worth your time...especially when the main character dresses up in a bear skin...it's a kind of comical part. I wouldn't EVER watch the movie before or after reading this book because it is NOTHING like the book! They got it all wrong! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Khoran | 11/27/2013

    " Telling I know but I could never finish one of Cooper's books. I always got bogged down in his descriptive ramblings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tedbrust | 11/22/2013

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rachel | 10/18/2013

    " Kind of complicated writing, yet captivating. Okay. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Twila | 9/16/2013

    " I liked the movie better. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Brian | 3/21/2013

    " simply godawful, holy hell. movie was good though. this is torturous to read? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ivan | 10/21/2012

    " Romantic adventure, surprisingly sensible to native americans and to ecology for a book written in early XIX century. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ahamstarr | 2/9/2012

    " The book was enjoyable as an adventure novel, but it didn't explore its ideas enough for me to consider it a classic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 11/30/2011

    " I liked the characters in this book so much that I named one of my sons after one of the characters. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Alice | 6/24/2011

    " didn't like b/c took too much to decipher the language "

  • 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.
