: Where are you? I just finished reading Deerslayer. It had mystery and adventure and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The verbose Natty/Deerslayer/Hawkeye and Hetty Hutter both drove me mad!!
: When Deerslayer and Ghingachgook were caught off guard so many times, I thought: "You're great woodsmen, why didn't you anticipate that?" Guess they were young, green and still learning. Despite all this, I enjoyed reading it.
Hi, Pat...Gayle would be proud of BOTH of us...I'm now halfway through Deerslayer, too. I love the descriptions of the country and the Glimmerglass, but I just want to smack Chatty Natty up beside the head now and again. Geez, didn't Cooper understand that he could just explain to us what Natty was thinking once in awhile, without ALWAYS making it a soliloquy?? I'm wondering how the heck Natty ever earned his reputation as a deerslayer...talking aloud to himself all the time ought to have scared off every deer within miles!! But overall, I AM enjoying the book. I just try to pretend he's not jabbering so blamed much.
