The book is a fictional autobiography of the title character, whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer, a castaway who spends years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued.
Engaging. Thought provoking
Not a very good book for class read aloud. Didn't even finish the book before the end of the year. Boring words. Good if you are in a highly advanced college but nothing else.
Kinda good. I'm aware it was written a long time ago, and the vocabulary doesn't really bother me, but the whole book in general was pretty boring. It was basically; sail ships, build stuff, kill stuff, sail more ships, repeat. Not my favorite.

Favorite book ever

Classic. Much better than the numerous inaccurate and suspensless movie plots. Loved the 300 year old use of language viz. English. Read to your kids.
Not a lot of dialogue. I got bored of it.

I had difficulty understanding some of the old English language but was able to figure out most it and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Does anyone know if this is the abridged or unabridged version of this book?
True classic for all time.
It has been a while since I have read Crusoe but hard to forget. How does a hopelessly stranded man live and think for decades alone with himself and an island? I like the stuff he creates.

Heard of the book growing up and sometimes seen even cartoons about this story.Im now over 50 years old and just reading this classic. It's hard to put down and I love the part where he finally comes to his senses and realizes there is a God who desires a relationship with us and through out life is trying to get our attention vis. Is always knocking at the door of our heart!
