Robinson Crusoe - the Castaway Classic
Published in 1719, Daniel Defoe’s “Robinson Crusoe” was one of the earliest novels in English. It’s a first person narrative that runs to almost 300 pages without division into chapters – I guess chapters were invented later. Defoe probably found inspiration for his tale in the real life ordeal of Alexander Selkirk, a Scot who spent 4 years as a castaway on a South Pacific island.

Old time classic, much better in depth and vision than the modern books, or movies such as "Castaway"

Good relaxing adventure. Transport yourself to the island with no facilities but with a big desire to live and survive every day.

Read the original...all the movies made of it have been garbage.

Though sometimes a slow read it is still captivating. Don't go by the movies to tell the true story.

Was a little bit boring at the beginning. But after - you can't stop reading it. Adventures. Admires how man can stay alive alone for so many years!

Robinson Crusoe is one of my all-time favorite books. I've probably read it at least 8 times over the years. If you love adventure stories about people who have to survive on almost nothing, carving out a life where none has existed before, you'll really love this classic story.
