Publisher's Summary

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.

Very good, very old!

I was after a true, classic adventure survival story. Stemming from my recent love for a survival video game called Minecraft. I wanted a really detailed step-by-step adventure. Robinson Caruso gave me just this!

It is quite obvious that this story was written a very long time ago (one of the first of its kind). On a side note - the vast differences between normal life back then and now (slaves, racism, communication etc.) actually provide some wonderful incite into human nature and social development.

The story is a true epic; adventure, action, disaster and overwhelming joy. It really gives you an appreciation for what you have and how to make the best of a bad situation.

Many lesions to learn and fun to be had. Lovely story, I would certainly recommend this book to anyone! Enjoy.

The voice recording was done quite some time ago and is not flawless. Never the less, a good performance.
