Robinson Crusoe

Robinson Crusoe
By Daniel Defoe
352 pages
10 hrs 39 minutes listening time

Grade A

Man, Robin was stuck on that island for a very, very, VERY long time. I really enjoyed this book regardless. I enjoyed reading how Robinson managed to stay alive and how he functioned. I also really enjoyed reading how he turned his little island into his own little country.
I also want to note, that I really enjoyed how well this book was written. I liked that even though it was written in an older English, and the narrator was very nice to listen to. He was no Jim Dale, but easy to listen to nonetheless.

I don't really know what else to say about this book. I mean it was great, I recommend it, but he spent almost 30 years on an island and the majority of those years, he was alone. But still, I recommend it.

I want to read it. For some reason I like reading about people (person) in solitude.

I think that is why I enjoyed it, was because I could read how he didn't just go crazy, that he actually was able to cope
