Here is a BBC Radio 4 full-cast dramatisation of one of the most famous adventure stories of all time, starring Roy Marsden as Robinson Crusoe.

Young Robinson Crusoe has a burning ambition to be a sailor. Paying no attention to his parent's warnings, he runs away to sea to embark on an extraordinary series of adventures: struggles with Barbary pirates, a shipwreck, and the extraordinary meeting with Man Friday.

Roy Marsden plays the older Robinson Crusoe looking back on a life of recklessness, daring and adventure - and the survival of 28 years, two months and 19 days on a desert island.

Based on the real-life adventures of Alexander Selkirk, son of a Scottish shoemaker, Robinson Crusoe was one of the very first adventure stories to be published in English literature, and it remains as gripping today as it was on publication in 1719. Download and start listening now!

    " Found the religious proselytizing tedious. "

    " Aside from all the wolf killing and bear killing at the end, I enjoyed this story. There is a point early on too where the author repeats part of the story and I'm not entirely sure of the point of that but at any rate, well written and enjoyable even though it's one man on an island for the better part of 3 decades.... worth reading of course. "

    " Not his best but an entertaining read. "

    " As a pioneer novelist, Defoe spends time experimenting forms of prose fiction. Clearly this book is under developed in that sense, which is why it was difficult to gain my attention to the journal style narrative with plot or character development. Important read for people who are interested in the progress and development of novels though. "
