This was another “price is right” purchase. Due to the nature of the writing, narration and period of the book, it took a while for me to admire the subtle text and charm of this book. It is authored beautifully to take the reader on a romantic ride on the wild and dangerous northern Americas of the late 18th century. Appreciation for its main characters build as the pages and chapters gracefully reveal the true Americans and their new conquerors. A wonderful classic!
This is by far the worst-produced and narrated audiobook I have purchased (in fairness, a relatively small universe). The sound quality is poor and the narrator races through the text much too fast (note to future aspiring narrators: "Last of the Mohicans" does NOT refer to a marathon runner who is in last place and in need of artificial acceleration). I've started this opus (nope-us) at least six times, and each time within 10 minutes have completely lost track of the narrative thread. Recommendation to potential buyers: Make like Hawkeye and go spy the land for a better version...
Distracting read of this book
great book...horrible read by this narrator. The tempo was not consistent and he constantly stops...pauses...stops...long pause...etc. I listened until the sixth chapter and then found that his read was making me MAD ! and distracted rather than being lost in the story as I should be. I have listened to many many audiobooks and this was the FIRST time I abandoned a book due to the reader :(
