Description

Robinson Crusoe, first published in 1719, was Defoe’s first novel and survives as his best-known work. Loosely based on a true account of a Scottish sailor—Alexander Selkirk—it is a tale of one man’s fall from grace and progress to redemption. The account of Crusoe’s life, scratched out with rationed indigo ink on a dwindling supply of paper salvaged from the hull of a wrecked ship, speaks eloquently of the tenacity and ingenuity of the human spirit.

A picture in time

Robinson Crusoe is a classic that is alluded to in other literature. It is also considered the first English novel. For those reasons, it is worth reading.

However, the story wanders and often retraces its steps. As a result, it was a wonderful bedtime read to help me fall asleep.

It was also a fascinating look into the early 18th century mind. It is unabashedly racist. White supremacy abounds. The humble pride of the narrator was laughable.

I am glad that I read this book, and it lends itself to discussion. The reader was excellent. All in all the book is a good glimpse into the past, encouraging me that we do live in a better time.

Great Moral Lessons....

This narration is done well... It's the story itself and the old English that makes this book quite difficult to get through... It holds some lasting moral lessons example; How Crusoe made his choices and why... However, too mant details... I was at times longing for him to get to the point... ! Glad I listened...It is a classic... Not for everyone though.... If you are interested... It would do you well to be up on your old English of the 1600's and willing to bear with the drag in the middle of this narrative.

Not the literary masterpiece I expected

I know this is supposed to be a literary masterpiece but I found it lacking. Specifically:
- the story is told for several chapters and the retold in the reading of Robinsons journal.
- Crusoe has many advantages for being deserted on an island. Tools, guns, gun powder and ammo that lasts 30+ years(?). He grows corn, rice and barley and has goat milk, cheese?
- there was little depth to the character and after a while I found I didn't even like him.

Why keep racist, sexist books that are boring too?

I only read this book because my studies forced me to and besides having no female characters the book managed to be sexist ("besides other supplies seven women") and even featured some animal cruelty next to the time typical racism.

Why it is necessary to spend half the book on the time Robinson did nothing at all, but repeatedly ruminate about whether or not he should keep goats, is a mystery to me.
Editing probably hadn't been in fashion back then.

The narrator was enjoyable to listen to as long as you tuned out the content.
