In Reply to: The Book..... Did Joy ever read it? posted by Elaine on April 01, 1998 at 19:57:29:
: It's been about three months since Joy posted wondering whether or not she should read "The Last of the Mohicans". I, being a Cooperphile,
: certainly hope she did. But many Cooperphobics recommended against it. Joy, if you're still out there..... did you read it? And if so, did you hate it or like it?
: A question; is there any particular scene from the movie that someone didn't like? Or is this a perfect film?
I slaved through parts of the Leatherstocking Tales in American Lit in high school and that was enough! Besides, I know the book is completely different and my loyalty lies with Mann's version.
I know I hit this topic many months ago, but perhaps the newcomers can change my mind - I still don't swallow Duncan's heroic 180 when he sacrifices himself so Cora and Nathaniel can escape together. I think he would just assume play the odds, let Nat burn and try to get away with Cora and pick up the pieces. Any thoughts?
