Reading is fairly lifeless

The reader fails to bring characters to life, and sounds as if he gets lost in the words and fails to attribute meaning to them. It's hard to listen to, and failed to grasp the attention of my mind's eye.

Beautiful. Rich. A Windows into another time.

Much easier for me to follow the story in Audible than reading it. With the disclaimer that my eyes are blue, I felt James Fenimore Cooper had a rare insight into the native cultures than many of his time. I felt he saw that we are all, in the end, human and in that classification, share the quaities of good, evil, compassion and love: That there are individuals in every race that manifest the spectrum of creativeness or destruction, honor or cowardice. I feel enriched by having read this tale.
