Widely held as the first novel in English, Robinson Crusoe tells the story of a castaway and his adventures while he was stranded on an island for 28 years.

Very good
4 stars By JR, Jul 28 2012
Robinson Crusoe is based on the true account of Alexander Selkirk, a sailor who escaped from being marooned on an uninhabited island. 


The negatives: It does take a while to get into it, and although the plot builds very well, it does so slowly at times. 

The positives: I found the book gripping. I did not have to begrudgingly force myself to read it. I read it whenever I got the chance. It is well-written and has a quaint charm about it. One of the things that I most liked about the book is its strong moral content. It presents the inevitable consequences for faulty attitudes, and shows the value of a changed heart. It challenged me personally, and left me with a much greater appreciation for everything that I have. I took down many challenging and inspiring quotes out of the book to read again later.
