Book Excerpt: 
. . .I went to work to make me a little tent, with the sail, and some poles, which I cut for that purpose; and into this tent I brought every thing that I knew would spoil either with rain or sun; and I piled all the empty chests and casks up in a circle round the tent, to fortify it from any sudden attempt either from man or beast.

When I had done this, I blocked up the door of the tent with some boards within, and an empty chest set up on end without; and spreading one of the beds upon the ground, laying my two pistols just at my head, and my gun at length by me, I went to bed for the first time, and slept very quietly all night, for I was very weary and heavy; for the night before I had slept little, and had laboured very hard all day, as well to fetch all those things from the ship, as to get them on shore.

I had the biggest magazine of all kinds now that ever was laid up, I believe, for one man: but I was not satisfied still: for while the ship sat . . . Read More

We all know the story of Robinson Crusoe and his redoubtable man Friday from our youth, so persistently pleasing has Defoe's novel of survival against the odds and unlikely friendship proven to be, three hundred years now after it was first published.

In all seriousness, this classic is one I've always wanted to read. The book showed good imagination, but could have gone a lot further in the diary accounts. I mean the guy should have become a better writer and could

Maar schitterend geschreven boek, een ode aan de creativiteit. Heb hier van genoten

Written in 1719, the young and impulsive Robinson Cursoe defied his parents and set out to sea. Well, things didn't go as planned, and he became stranded for over 28 years as a castaway, keeping a daily journal of his life.
The prose was written as only the English could do back then. For example, th

I suppose it was ground-breaking for its time, though the 1700s religious, racial, and societal views come through in full force. Defoe briefly touches on survivor's guilt and some philosophical exploration, but I thought it would have been more interesting if he had explored those issues more.

I studied Robinson Crusoe in college and now i I teach it for my students ...Well, it's a very interesting story.I like Friday , Robinson and Spanish sailor ..The events are very interesting ..I liked it when i was studying and when i was teaching

This is a wonderful classic. I have just finished rereading it, and thoroughly enjoyed it. I am a big fan of survival stories, especially those that involve castaways. This one was quite entertaining, and very well written. It did seem just a bit too fortuitous that Crusoe would be able to so easily

Robinson Crusoe had the bright idea to "tempt Providence" and disobey his parents to run off and sail the high seas on a ship that was on the path to doom. From the time he left the safety of home, hardly a page passed without him falling into some type of success or calamity.
