This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. More filters. Sort order. OMG I am finally done with this! This is one of the most unnecessarily drawn out adventures that I have ever read And the narrator gave this book the final blow, narrating it as if it were the most boring non-fiction book around Although I started this book hoping to love it as much as I loved The Last of the Mohicans, this story left me underwhelmed. It was in fact so mind-numbingly repetitive and drawn out that it almost put me straight into a slump. Be that as it may, the story and charac OMG I am finally done with this!

Be that as it may, the story and characters were solid enough for 3 full stars, though not for more. Oct 29, Manal Farag rated it really liked it. I liked this novel. However, I find it somehow too wordy, over descriptive and slow. Judith Hutter is a beautiful, strong-welled character who possesses several admirable traits, like intelligence, bravery and a loving devotion to her sister. On the other hand, In Natty Bumppo, represents the American hero: selfless, dependable, restrained, tolerant, and moral, but he had an outstanding flaw; his inability to deal successfully with women, which I consider as a major flaw.
Cooper is over the top I liked this novel. Cooper is over the top with the virtuous Natty Bumppo, which by the way I find endearing, but I think most of the new generations who are raised on anti-heroes will have a bit of a problem with the morality of Bumppo. In the end, the girl had to swallow her pride and make an explicit marriage proposal; something I consider unthinkable and appalling.
I find Deerslayer's attitude toward Judith throughout the novel very frustrating, but the contrast between Deerslayer and Chingachgook, the romance between Chingachgook and Wah-ta-Wah, and the love triangle between Judith, Hurry Harry and Deerslayer, all contribute to the success of this classic American litrature. Dec 09, Philip Mcclarty rated it liked it. Anyone remember the movie speed with Keeianna Reeves otherwise known for his award wining role in bill and teds big adventure , how you kept thinking the movie was over, but it wasn't.
That was deer slayer for me. Actually I thought it would make a good movie, especially since I did enjoy Last of the Mohicans the movie so much. Not a lot of depth, just adventure, but often entertaining. Dec 04, Jenny Anderson rated it it was amazing. Great book.
This is the book written before Last of the Mohicans. I really enjoyed listening to the book tape. It was written in so the language and expressions are unique and add greatly to the experience of reading such a text. Feb 10, Don rated it really liked it. This is an oldie but a goodie. There is not much to be said about that hasn't already been said many times over this book's very long life.
Modern readers may find it's writing to be old fashioned and wordy. Chat's because it is.
