Robinson Crusoe, the first English novel, was an immediate success when first published in 1719, and has been an internationally popular classic ever since. The compelling tale of a man who put to sea in search of adventure and found himself shipwrecked on a desert island and alone for decades has become a resonant modern myth. Crusoe walking the limits of his small domain, a typical Englishman carrying his umbrella in the blazing tropics, is a figure familiar throughout the Western world.

    " This book took me forever to read; definitely not a page-turner. It's kind of hard to say what exactly I liked about the book, but overall I did like it. I didn't expect the religious subject matter but that was probably my favorite aspect of the book. The lack of emotion in the character of Robinson Crusoe is what made this book more of a chore to read. Even when he describes his emotions, it still feels like it's lacking emotion. When he finally gets some human companionship, the dialogue still wasn't very compelling. The book feels a little unorganized and unpolished, almost like a first draft, but I found it to have some elusive redeeming qualities. "

    " It was fine. There are some good quotes and it's generally a good read. I just kept feeling like there was going to be more...like there was such a buildup that didn't quite pay off. "

    " Well, the whole book was a collection of boring stuff. I just liked the part where Crusoe built his so-called castle. "

    " When I first read this as a kid, I thought it was pretty interesting but also pretty racist. Now that I've read Ibn Tufayl's Hayy Ibn Yaqzan, I can safely say this is almost a worthless piece of shit. First novel in the English language, some say, but like a lot of white "firsts" in art, it's actually just a rip-off of a much more monumental first from much earlier that sucks a lot more. "
