I skipped the first 50 or so pages and tried again. The story gripped me and I kept going. When I had decided it was a keeper, I went back to page one and started over to catch what I had missed.
When I caught up to what I had already read I just skimmed through to where I had left off, then breezed through to the end, captivated.
This was in summer. I read it again the next four summers. When it came up as a Kindle read read, I had to have it. Need I say more?
For parents out there. There is graphic violence. The use of the English language is great. I really enjoyed hearing about the time period and I am interested in learning more about the French and Indian War. Overall, I would give it a four out of five stars and just caution you to be careful what version you get.
The editor does well to recognize Cooper's historic tale is more myth than history, but I encourage others to read the Introduction at least of Michael Oberg's _Uncas_ for a clearer explanation of Cooper's lasting effects of Native American memory and history.
For the most part the story is interesting and engaging. It does tweak an array of emotions, but I found it to be less than a thriller. About three fourths of the way through the story’s inevitability wore thin. At that point it lost its potency. I had to push myself to get through to the end. In sum, the book fell short of satisfying my appetite for a good read.
