    " Would that I were so productive as to multiple my store to bountifully in this society as did Mr. Crusoe when he had none but cats and goats with which to divert himself. "

    " It was a book that I think most should read, but I did not much care for it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 6/15/2011

    " A hugely influential work that seems to be a metaphor for European capitalism and expansion, accompanied by the expected hubris.

    After having read this I would recommend Swift's Gulliver's Travels which takes a more pessimistic view of man's nature. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Candi | 6/13/2011

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Randy | 6/13/2011

    " i like this story but the language is too difficult for young people today. They won't stay with it to the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 6/10/2011

    " Cannibals?! Long entries about acquiring provisions to survive on a deserted island?! Heavy-handed morality messages. I'm so glad that "children's literature" has evolved. I wouldn't have wanted to read this one as a child. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Prashansa | 6/8/2011

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