I often walked along the shore, and one day I saw something in the sand. I went over to look at it more carefully.... It was a footprint - the footprint of a man!'In 1659 Robinson Crusoe was shipwrecked on a small island off the coast of South America. After fifteen years alone, he suddenly learns that there is another person on the island. But will this man be a friend - or an enemy?

    " honestly, i have no idea why this is a "classic". okay, not really true. it's one of the first novels, so i know that's why it continues to be read and taught. but i would not recommend this book to anyone. "

    " I really enjoyed this book for many reasons. First, the age of this book is just so intriguing to me. It was first published in 1719 and is credited as being the first English novel. Considering how much history has passed since then! Even though it was fiction, it was like peering into a time capsule and gave me the feeling of what it must have been like to discover new worlds. Second, it's actually a good story. I was kept interested by the alternating focus between how he managed to fend for himself on the island in a practical way, and how he felt about it all. Finally, the theme of being content with what you have was beautifully illustrated by this story and I liked the gentle nature of the main character. It's a very thought-provoking story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Correen | 1/28/2014

    " I have avoided this book for many years, finally I was ready to enjoy the pleasure of the writing, meticulous attention to details, and the peek into times past. Robinson Crusoe leaves his family for a life at sea which turns out to be long years on an island. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leishee | 1/25/2014

    " I found this book much to hard to get into and didn't finish it. It would suit you if you can handle three pages of description about the same thing. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aurelien | 1/12/2014

    " I think the book is very capturing and exciting for a reasons, it is probably cause you always want to know what will happen next to robinson. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Damon A | 1/12/2014

    " Excellent account of what hardwork over many, many years can bring to one who doesn't give up. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David Robins | 12/24/2013

    " Deserving of its classic status; the tale of one man (for most of it) against the elements and how he comports himself. Some inspiring passages, too. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Miranda Mowbray | 11/18/2013

    " I usually love these old classics, but I just don't like Defoe's style of writing. Honestly, I found it very boring and monotonous. I liked the story behind the words, but the words were just not doing it for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brian Talgo | 9/26/2013

    " The only book I've ever read in three different languages: English, Norwegian and German. And I loved them all! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Evelyn | 9/17/2013

    " Beginning was boring; the stripped-down version I read was entertaining but not particularly memorable. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Olivia | 9/10/2013

    " At many times, it was so hard not to wish him dead already just to end the monotonous droning. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Megan | 8/11/2013

    " I am glad to have read it, but can't say I enjoyed the process. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew Granville | 8/1/2013

    " The first English novel, one of the most widely published books in history, where's your copy? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Olga | 12/27/2012

    " I learned so many lessons, wisdom and truths that equipped me for a more practical life. It showed me another angle of life and how I should be more thankful for what I have because as a famous quote says "We are never thankful for something until we lose it" . A must read!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 8/20/2012

    " I just had to read this book after reading The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins. The two go hand in hand. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rikki Chadwig | 8/4/2012

    " Zanimljiva knjiga o prezivljavanju...Pitanje je da li je sve sto u njoj pise vazilo samo u to vreme...? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma Best | 6/23/2012

    " Great book with awesome detail! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cscha101 cha | 6/17/2012

    " A wonderful classic, for both boys and girls, full of human defects and wisdom. Unlike superhero movies, they tell us just how much will power it takes for us all to do great things... a lot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaime | 2/11/2012

    " The challenge to this novel is that the lengthy descriptions take away from the feel of the book. i enjoyed the sheer adventure and thoughts of Crusoe as he is isolated. While a classic, this is not one of the best books that i have read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James Mcauliffe | 12/7/2011

    " This is one of my all time favourite novels. I'm not really into writing a book report, suffice to say that if I ever have my own private library this is going into it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candi Olsen | 10/31/2011

    " I had a hard time getting into this book, I'm not sure I ever really did. I'm not sure I liked the main character that much. Which made the book difficult for me to read since he's alone for a good chunk of it. Although it was interesting to see how his mind worked and to see his creativity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Prashant Singh | 7/29/2011

    " Awesome adventure while surviving the toughest battles of Life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Miriam | 4/24/2011

    " Very detailed storyline throughout the book except at the end. I felt cheated. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 3/30/2011

    " Not the worst, but pretty annoying. I gave up. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maya Archer-doyle | 2/8/2011

    " Ugh. I know. A classic but for some reason. I hated it. I just found it extremely tedious. "
