Michael Maloney reads Daniel Defoe's timeless tale of a man who has to use all his own skills to survive alone on an island. Robinson Crusoe has a great desire to see the world and, against his father's wishes, goes to sea. After surviving a terrible shipwreck, however, Robinson Crusoe discovers he is the only person on a deserted island, far from any shipping routes or rescue. Using tools salvaged from the ship and with only the ship's dog and cats for company, Crusoe builds a dwelling and a search reveals a plentiful supply of food. For nearly twenty-three years he lives without any human company - until one Friday, when he discovers he is not alone... The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe is a classic tale of adventure and survival.

    " I have seen several movie versions of this book and it was nice to read the actual book. This was an adapted youth version so not sure how much was cut or if anything was changed. I would have selected the original version if I had realized this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Robert | 4/7/2013

    " I don't know whether it is due to the abridged nature of this version or due to rose-colored memories of the original, but while reading this to the kids we all agreed that the titular hero comes across as an incompetent boob. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 12/6/2012

    " I picked this book up because I've been watching the television show "Crusoe" and was wondering how like the book the show was. Well, it's similar, but they are taking quite a few liberties with the show. I still enjoyed reading this book and it was interesting to me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jay Jani | 11/8/2012

    " Found nothing special that my English professor used to heap so much praise about the book. Its totally meant for children and not for adults. Still not a very worthy must read children classic. A simple story without much direction or meaning. Not so well written ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenna | 11/7/2012

    " a bit boring, reminded me of pirates of the caribbean for some reason.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley Shimansky | 8/11/2012

    " Great way to introduce my children to the genre - they didn't want to put it down! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandra Pedicini | 7/14/2012

    " A pretty straightforward telling of the classic, meant for children. Didn't offer much in terms of Robinson's internal life as he was stranded on this godforsaken island. The poor man was alone with nothing but his thoughts for years, but this adaptation doesn't get into them. My daughter liked it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandi | 7/5/2012

    " Another good family read! We are on a roll with "shipwrecked" stories. Robinson was quite ingenious in acclimating to life alone on an island. The fact that he was there for over 25 years is mind blowing. Cannibals, prisoners and mutineers...oh my! "
