    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUBMy current reading of The Deerslayer has turned my attention to works by Cooper that I've read already a couple of which I haven't reviewed here before now Published in 1821 The Spy was only Cooper's second novel and the first to be much a literary success set mainly during the Revolutionary War in 1780 to be ex

    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUBI put off reading this book for a while because I knew it would be an important one and I wanted to really read it Well I really read it and it was fantastic I feel kind of numb now that it's over It was different than I had expected I guess I thought it would be complicated and extensive but it was beautiful in it's simplicity It was as if the American War for Independence was spread across Google Maps and then you zoomed in on just one little area a house or maybe a neighborhood and watched the goings on

    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUBIn 1821 when The Spy or A Tale of Neutral Ground appeared for an American author to publish a novel set in America and dealing with an American theme was indeed unusual For that novel to be successful was thought impossible Americans it was said would never read the work of a countryman writing about other Americans They would snatch up avidly the romances of Scott or the society novels of other British authors but since Charles Brockden Brown's heyday nearly twenty years before no one except Washington Irving had dared to offer them truly American fare And now Irving had deserted the field The Spy by James Feni Cooper was to change this attitude once and for all From the Foreword by Curtis DahlI loved this book even than The Pathfinder which is sa

    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUBWho am I to review a book that was written 190 years ago? I really enjoyed the book It’s full of action adventure and colorful characters The hero is a master of disguise Fortunately for him people in the 18th Century were easily duped by donning women’s clothing and fashioning wigs out of sheep’s wool As in most of Cooper’s novels there is an old widower who has two diametrically opposed daughters There is also a conniving housekeeper a happy go lucky slave and a circumlocutory surgeon among others I read the 1946 “Great Illustrated Classics” edition No not a Classics Illustrated comic book which contains fascinating illustrations from 19th Century editions of the book Part of the allure of reading an old library book is wondering who else has read it in the past 60 years and also how many years did it sit unread on the shelf until I borrowe

    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUB“The law was momentarily extinct and justice was administered subject to the bias of personal interests”Wonderful Romantic adventure “inspired by a true story” during the American Revolutionary War Well developed plot Cooper’s first “hit” “The heart which has not become callous soon sickens with the glory that has been purchased with a waste of human life”So why hasn’t it famous and why wasn’t it made into a movie? Why only three stars? Because being a very early work it

    Paperback ´ The spy Kindle µ The spy PDF/EPUBWritten around 1820 this is one of James Feni Cooper's lesser known novels Modern spy novels focus on the gadgets and cleverness of the spy trade This one highlights the individual and what it meant to be a spy in the Revolutionary War Harvey Birch led a lonely and dangerous life hunted by soldiers from both sides as he worked or less directly for George Washington Anonymity was crucial and he ultimately refused pay choosing to serve his country selflessly Other humorous characters include a pompous surgeon who glories in amputations and a black servant whom Copper gives voice to in the slang of the day Upon finishing the tale I felt a little prouder to be an American
