Robinson Crusoe is an exciting tale full of many fascinating adventures that delve into the cleverness human psyche.

Ever since Robinson Crusoe left his father against his blessing things haven't really gone well for him. After many voyages, and becoming a slave, freeing himself from said slavery, he ends up on a deserted island where he is the only man to survive the voyage. His resolve to live proves to be a strong force and he is determined to live the best he can on the island, and this is where the story truly begins┬┐

The book war originally published in 1719, but the impact of the brilliant writing still shows today. Daniel Defoe always provides awesome description that makes the reader feel like he is right their next to Robinson Crusoe experiencing the events alongside him. Crusoe himself is a very lively character as well. It seems that almost everything he does ends with a negative consequence. These events truly impact Crusoe, later in the story he starts thanking god, and taking truly believing in the almighty. The Robinson Crusoe in the beginning of the story is not the same Robison Crusoe at the end of the story.

Robinson Crusoe is journey that you will want to embark on. Every chapter holds excitement, adventure, and a touch of wit. If you haven┬┐t read this story I highly recommend it as it goes above and beyond the quality required to make this a truly acceptable story.

This copy sucks.

The page breaks come in the bottom third of every page, and long strings of nonsense are present throughout. Don't waste your time with this copy.

    Robinson Crusoe

    Dont read this book, it doesnt really go anywhere. He spends chapters describing how he feels, not how he survives.

    Eh.

    If you like adventure books then read this for pleasure. While I can accept it as being seen as the first English Novel, it is dreadfully boring.Lockean Epistemology is something that I've always disagree with. This book is unfortunatly exhibits it.

    Very, very slow but strong morality lessons

    I am thirtysomething and have been reading the classics that I missed growing up. I found this book to be EXTREMELY slow moving after the first few chapters and eventually put it down without finishing it. However, the story is a great study of human nature and gives a great lesson on the importance that every human life has value.
