Exceptionally popular since its publication in 1719, Robinson Crusoe is widely regarded as the first English novel. Our eponymous hero finds himself shipwrecked on an African desert island after a tumultuous storm, and following the realization that he is the only survivor, is faced with the prospect of years of isolation. However, he throws his energy into familiarizing himself with his new habitat: he hunts, learns how to make pottery and even adopts a parrot. And after encountering a group of cannibals, Robinson Crusoe finally finds a companion.

A thrilling adventure for younger listeners, made thoroughly accessible through Roy McMillan's retelling of Defoe's text, simplifying and clarifying it at certain points.

    " Its interesting reading a book written from a era were slavery was very common and seeing a character's attitude vs how we think and feel today. "

    " I read this for a class called "Slavery and 18th Century Literature". I appreciate the book for whatever it is, but I did not enjoy reading it. It was long and tedious. It has nothing to do with the style of archaic writing but everything to do with Robinson as a terrible character in a terrible situation. Anyway, I read it. "

    " I had to read Robinson Crusoe , because it was in my school program this year. And I actually didn't like it that much. I know it's a classic and that it's a great book, but I just couldn't force myself to love it. The story is great, it's interesting. It's a great book, but just not MY book. "
