You are here
The book never got really slow because he was all ways doing something new. I did not like how he did not tell much about Friday his friend because he was a big part about the story. I liked the voice of the character it was really good and made the book flow better and made it easy to understand. Life lesson is when your stranded work hard to get home. This book is valuable because it is really entertaining and shows that you can live though hard situations. Last Robnson lived on the island for 28 years and still made it home.
Oct 26, Jeremy rated it really liked it Shelves: Feb 22, Yusuf Sahin rated it it was amazing. Robinson Crusoe is a smart man.
When he gets shipwrecked on an island, he ads many different skills to survive the years he would have been on the isolated island. He hunts, builds his own home, frees prisoners, makes carpentry, makes jars of clay, and even starts a farm! This book I would recommend for you. Feb 04, Damian rated it really liked it. Hey everybody, I'm back with another "Great Illustrated Classics" review. This time it's "Robinson Crusoe", and although I've been giving a lot of four to five star reviews I truly mean them, so don't worry about not getting an honest review.
Now, I found this book by accident like I do most of my books but I loved it nonetheless. The book follows the story of a man shipwrecked on an island with no skills in surviving whatsoever with the acceptance of his strength and wits. As he makes a home and farm, he dreams of rescue although he loves his island. This story has much action and adventure paced well, although it doesn't seem to show the psychological effect of being on an island by yourself except for a few pages about being lonely where i love to see that happen in a book about survival.
Although he is well made off from the beginning it still captures the feeling of need for survival very well. That's all for this "Great illustrated Classic" but i'll be sure to do some more in the future. Until next time, read more books! This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers.

The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe by Malvina G. Vogel
Will he safely get back to civilization? Read the book to find out! The best thing about the book is that Crusoe and Friday who Crusoe meets on the island get back safely.
Stories with happy endings are always good because then, it wouldn't be interesting. The worst thing about this book is the idea of cannibals. I mean, men eating other men can be scary. I hope this never happens in too many other books. The plot in this book is very interesting. From the suspense of the shipwreck to the terror of the cannibals, it's very interesting.
The end is also good. As I said earlier, happy endings are wonderful because otherwise, the book would be really saddening, which I wouldn't like. Finally, Crusoe is an interesting character because he shows the ability to survive over 20 years on a remote island. May 12, Cole rated it it was amazing. Robin Crusoe is a classic old tale of a man that sails the seas but then later is shipwrecked on a trading-slave expedition to West Africa. Being the only survivor from the shipwreck, Crusoe has to learn how to survive on his own from gathering food, and finding shelter. He finds himself searching several times at the broken down ship to search for supplies for the will to survive, eventually making the lonely island his home.
There is no movie or i havent seen it 3. I would highly recommend 1. I would highly recommend this movie to other people; it is a good classic survival fiction.

It tells a good story that is well written. What I really enjoy is that the author can give such good details and descriptions about what is going on; it feels as though you are part of the book. It shows you what Robison Crusoe had to face in order for him to survive and to get back home.
I was hooked until the end just to see how everything Robison Crusoe had to go through and what he ended up like. Nov 18, Leslie rated it did not like it. I guess reading this adaptation will inspire me to read the actual thing. I know those were the times, but in Vogel's telling the relationship was starkly master-servant. Crusoe' I guess reading this adaptation will inspire me to read the actual thing.
