The Last of the Mohicans - A Narrative of 1757 (version 2)


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.4 stars; 45 reviews)

This story is set in the British province of New York during the French and Indian War, and concerns a Huron massacre (with passive French acquiescence) of from 500 to 1,500 unarmed Anglo-American troops, who had honorably surrendered at Fort William Henry, plus some women and servants; the kidnapping of two sisters, daughters of the British commander; and their rescue by Hawkeye, the last two Mohicans, and others. Parts of the story may have been derived from the capture and death of Jane McCrea in July 1777 near Fort Edward, New York, by members of an Algonquian tribe.

Reviews

(1 stars)

I agree with another reviewer. If English is not your first language please, don’t volunteer to read a book like this! The prose of early 19th century is already challenging enough to follow for some of us. Heavy accents of readers made it necessary for me to switch to the other choice of the book, which I then enjoyed! .

(3.5 stars)

this classic story is wordy, as was the style that was common in the time period it was written. I enjoyed it but, some of the narrations were difficult to understand. one was too quiet, the others had extremely thick accents, making the already descriptive and extensive writing more difficult to understand. this was a volunteer read audio book, and it was free, but I just wish I didn't have to try too hard to pick out what they were saying. it took away from the book a little. still a classic and I did still enjoy it.

(3 stars)

Some of the volunteer readers were hard to understand while a couple were almost unintelligible. I enjoy the book, in fact have read it several times. I was therefore very disappointed in the quality of the reading.

(1.5 stars)

Some chapters were unintelligible, a beautiful accent is pleasant but when it comes to some of the volunteers in this book it was difficult if not impossible to understand what they were reading.

(5 stars)

it was a great book and I enjoyed it. probably would have enjoyed it more if I could have understood some of the readers.
