Robinson Cruso based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Robinson Crusoe was an assigned reading for a course, which explains why I got it in the first place. It was so direly boring after other shipwreck stories like Lord of the Flies by Golding that I had trouble taking it seriously. Yes, he does manage to acquire quite the empire on the island, but given the Providence-granted hoards of luxuries granted him it is simply not very admirable as compared to, say, someone who builds something from little else. The first half is about how he accumulates his forms of sustenance and albiet being amusing at the extravagance he manages, is unbelievable. Not worth the time.
