Our fourteen year old liked the adventure and survival techniques of the island. She said this book reminded her to not give up and be lethargic in your circumstances but to be active in problem solving.

She also was encouraged to stand up for those in underprivileged circumstances or in abusive situations and not just be a by stander. She liked there was a lot to take away from this book. She would recommend this book to whoever likes adventure. Our eleven year old liked the ingenuity of Crusoe when he was stranded on the island. She said it made her think of being creative if she were ever stranded somewhere without the proper resources.

She disliked the beginning because she felt it was too slow moving.

The Real Robinson Crusoe

She would recommend this book because it is a good book and you can learn a lot of stuff, specifically if you feel like you are at an end, keep trying because you can always find a way. As the mom, I am thankful the book kept both girls engaged. We had many points for discussion throughout the entire book. I would recommend all families with children in middle school and above to read this book aloud as a family.

I look forward to reading it again when our younger two are older.

I can't say that about all of the books we read aloud. I've been working my way through the classics and actually reading all of those old familiars whose plots you know but that you've never actually finished. I have been delighted by how many of those books remain current, exciting and entertaining for young readers. Perhaps surprisingly, "Pollyanna" is a tough, earnest, inspirational character without the slightest touch of the lame and sentimental goody-goodiness with which her name has become attached.

In the same vein, "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" is a take-no-guff pistol. On the other hand, "The Last of the Mohicans" I found to be prolix and almost incomprehensible. Which brings us to "Robinson Crusoe". While the idea of the castaway more or less originated with and became eternally popular in connection with this book, the book itself is not at all the boys' own, or even stirring, adventure you might expect. Google critical discussions if you like.

What you will turn up is very interesting articles about Crusoe as "the Economic Man", or the European colonialist or imperialist, or the radical Protestant. Defoe was a successful businessman and trader in the new economic order of his time, and Crusoe is in many ways a contemplation or examination of what imperialist trade meant culturally, morally, ethically, politically and economically.

There are all sorts of paradoxes, inconsistencies, complexities, contradictions and conflicts in how Crusoe approaches moral, ethical, religious and even commercial and entrepreneurial issues throughout this book, and volumes have been written about what Defoe was really getting at in some passages. So, bottom line, you could teach a college level course just based on this book, and you could spark some fascinating discussions, papers, and points of view.

It's offerings are rich and varied. But this is a difficult and demanding read if embraced fully, and not at all the kids shelf actioner the "classic tale" label might suggest. Flat Lander Top Contributor: Photography.

I read this in high school about 50 years ago and decided to reread this book written about or so. Once I got past the ancient writing style, I got hooked on the imagery. I thought I recalled the book, but what I recalled was the various Robinson Crusoe movies that I had seen. Friday, instead of kicking this pompous jerk's posterior from here to next Friday after repaying whatever debt he owed Robinson for saving his life, is a faithful slave in every way for the remainder of the book.


Friday speaks in a pidgin English, which is probably realistic enough for a man who learned English late in life from one solitary individual, but Robinson has an offensive habit of translating easy-enough-to-understand things that Friday says to us, the idiot readers "At which he smiled, and said - 'Yes, yes, we always fight the better;' that is, he meant always get the better in fight". Also, during Friday's religious education, he asks Robinson why god doesn't just kill the devil and end evil, and because there is actually no good answer to such a question for a religious person, Robinson simply pretends not to hear him and wanders away.

Luckily, Robinson Crusoe's religious conversion doesn't last forever. As soon as he's back in civilization and making money hand over fist, he pretty much gives it up. Speaking of which, what was with the end of this book? He gets rescued, he goes home, but there's no emotional payoff, and instead he goes on about his European adventures with Friday. We don't care about the wolves and dancing bear!

Robinson Crusoe

We want to know, did you learn anything from your years away? Do you feel like you missed out? Was anyone happy to see you? Did they have a funeral for you while you were missing? What did your mother do when she saw you again? Robinson Crusoe is a man without any of the human characteristics that make people interesting to read about when they get into difficult situations.

He has no regrets, no personal longings, and he never reflects on his life before he was on the island during his decades on the island. I understand that this is just an "adventure novel" but people actually still read this tripe and consider it a classic! View all comments. Thanks for sharing.

There was a minor incident with a shipwreck and just when I'd managed to find passage on another boat some pirates turned up and I ended up as a slave.

I had to do loads of work for this Moorish guy and while it was all nice and exotic, it's not nice being stripped of all your civil liberties. Anyway I've just escaped with my buddy Xury and we're heading out to sea in order to see if we can flag down a bigger boat, er sorry, ship. Much hotter than hull at any rate. I'm redder than a snapper on stick and am having a bit of trouble finding my feet. There's some sort of carnival on and I've seen a big hill which would like nice with a big statue of Jesus on it. I've met some nice blokes on the boat and they said they'd help me make my fortune.

Someone is predicting that Brazil nuts will be the next big thing come Christmas next year so maybe I'll give that a go. I got myself all set up with a nice plantation and enjoyed the good life for a while here but I miss the salty tang of the sea air, the creak of the sails and the gentle rocking of the boat so I've decided to sink my money into slavery and am going to put to sea as soon as I can.
