The book is a fictional autobiography of the title character, whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer, a castaway who spends years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued.
It was really good book
Engaging. Thought provoking
It is a classic, what could I add?
Not a very good book for class read aloud. Didn't even finish the book before the end of the year. Boring words. Good if you are in a highly advanced college but nothing else.

Reading this was worse than subjecting myself to 17 hours of torture. So boring there was barely any character development. There was only 1 exciting event and I found that forcing me to watch idiotic musical.lys was more educational, has more health benefits, and didn't make me want to get on life support.
This was overall a great and truly enjoyable book! It was quite an adventure and I definitely don't regret reading it. Keeps you guessing and on your toes, wondering what in the world is gonna happen next! Definitely would recommend reading it if you love travel and adventures and stories of the humans ability to survive and keep fighting and carrying on in spite of horrible circumstances and crushing adversity with the help of God, prayer and faith. Very encouraging! Also a great reminder that amazing blessings often come after hardships if you keep fighting and never give up. God always brings you out even better off then you were before if you are faithful and persevere!

If anyone says this is just a boring classic, they probably just don't understand what they are reading. If you can get past the old English it is a very enjoyable book and is worth the time.
ROBINSON CRUSOE NOT LIKE THE MOVIE VERSIONS
I've seen several movie versions of the story of Robinson Crusoe, but the actual book contained many years and much drama in the first few chapters before he was actually cast away, plus the drama of his ultimate rescue wasn't the end of the book, but he lived many more years and another whole life after his rescue, including adventures in Europe. Also, Robinson Crusoe's story contained the understory of his conversion from a callow, sinful, immoral youth to a God-fearing, faithful Christian after his being castaway to the island. The movie versions all omit this very important part of the book because without that conversion, there is no logical explanation for much of Crusoe's behaviour.
Kinda good. I'm aware it was written a long time ago, and the vocabulary doesn't really bother me, but the whole book in general was pretty boring. It was basically; sail ships, build stuff, kill stuff, sail more ships, repeat. Not my favorite.
