Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dennis | 2/18/2014

    " If all parents raised children like this... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jed | 1/25/2014

    " I enjoyed the book. This was more about believing in God than survival. It was a bit over the top with all of the things that were on an island, but it was still a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Maddie Laidlaw | 1/23/2014

    " I thought this book was ok because it was written in an old fashioned way even though the plot is very good. It's about a 1800's family who is shipwrecked on an island and is forced to survive. On this island they have many different animals which is kind of strange but it makes you think that people have inhabited the island before. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jo | 1/21/2014

    " Probably my favoirite book as a young teen. I read it & re-read it. It seemed very exotic. The family was very resourceful, and I loved seeing them carve a life out of the land (with the blessings of the supplies from a shipwreck). I would've loved to live in that tree-house! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lauren | 1/19/2014

    " The story of a family who lived on an island after being shipwrecked. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natali | 1/17/2014

    " First of all, this is nothing like the movie! This was a slower book. There wasn't a lot of action and the story took place over years. The thing that I liked was the unity and the interactions with the family and how the Parent's raised their boys. That drove me crazy watching the movie and seeing how much they were fighting. It wasn't like that in the book at all. I loved how they obeyed the Sabbath and worshiped God and gave thanks to Him. It is a good family book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cecil James | 1/9/2014

    " While this book was enjoyable, I almost got too bogged down with the "ramboness" of it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 1/6/2014

    " Read this with Matthew, along with Island of the Blue Dolphins and Nim's Island. Going to continue our Island Adventure theme now with Stowaway. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joshua Yue | 12/24/2013

    " This book is a classic that is worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 12/17/2013

    " More difficult language and vocabulary. Adventure. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susanne | 11/25/2013

    " Why is this book a classic? The narrator is a pompous ass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Irina | 9/16/2013

    " An instructional tale, written by a pastor in 1812. It reflects his and that time period's attitudes and thoughts regarding colonization, family, morality, hunting, providence, and learning. Much of it is idealized. Knowing all that, I still found it an enjoyable and idyllic story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Davy | 8/11/2013

    " In retrospect, probably a little pushy in the Christianity department. But a cool treehouse is a cool treehouse. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 7/13/2013

    " Loved this book because of the inventiveness of the family Robinson and the fact that they got an island to themselves. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 3/9/2013

    " it was really cool! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 CC | 9/30/2012

    " I read this book as a young girl long ago. I liked it more then than I did when I read it again to my family. Still, it is likeable enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 2/24/2012

    " So different from the movie but love both! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 1/7/2012

    " I really liked this book, but it did get a little tedious in some parts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nichole | 5/23/2011

    " I have grown to love this book a great deal. I find the characters engaging and dear friends. I love the determination that comes through in the writing. It is an honest and entertaining book that I highly recommend. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 K.Q. Webster | 5/13/2011

    " I get tired of the "Survival" books because there are so many of them and they just start sounding the same. But this one is an exception. I really like it! This family goes from being shipwrecked on an island to living in a giant tree house and having an ostrich as a pet! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Linda | 5/11/2011

    " Read to my children prior to visiting Disney World. Great book to read aloud. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sherral | 4/25/2011

    " Made me wish I were cast away on an island paradise! :) "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kendall | 4/18/2011

    " I got the idea of reading this to the boys but they got bored of it as fast as I did. I wound up finishing it out of a feeling of obligation but didn't enjoy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melody | 4/15/2011

    " We are reading the original version for our homeschool, and it has been a great read! I'm amazed, however, at how much the various re-writes differ from the original. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 starryblu | 3/26/2011

    " This book is my favorite memory from grade school. In fifth grade, every day after lunch, our teacher would read chapter of the book to us. I was absolutely enthralled. I've read it several times since, and just had to re-live the memory when I saw the free kindle download. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Holly | 3/25/2011

    " I think the only reason I liked this book was because my dad read it out loud to me and we laughed for hours about some of the ridiculous things they do like sheep flinging. "
