oh, cringe...I was afraid of this.
Well, here's my reaction: I can handle there being lots of bits and pieces of additional stuff as opposed to the hefty chunks I wanted. I can PRETTY much handle there not being more of Uncas and Alice (gulp).
What I CAN'T handle is the Clannad music being gone...what was he thinking??!...and the DELETION of those two lines you mentioned ("serious disagreement" and "nothing better to do on the lake today"), which are two of my FAVORITE lines, right up there with "I ain't your damn scout...Clear it up any?"
And I am miffed that there's no explanation about the wound which will seep but then draw. Harumph!
I don't know how I'll feel about hearing Chingachgook make a speech at the end, but I have a question: does Hawkeye actually ask Cora to stay and be his wife?? OH! And, at the first Cameron's cabin scene, is there more political discussion, mainly by Chingachgook? I remember hearing long ago that there was.
Oh, this is sad. I look forward to more analysis and input.
