This is a classic of English literature, but that does not mean it will be popular today. It moves very slowly and is overtly a tract for Christianity, though I would say a well considered tract. Most young people will not find the book readable. Nevertheless, for anyone interested in the history of the English novel, it is a must read.

Well, that was sure racist. I liked the idea of survival against the odds, and I have to give it licence for the times. But wow. He was shipwrecked on his way to pick up slaves. The protagonist is a slave trader, yet somehow the good guy? It has 2 stars because it spawned a whole genre of desert island stories all the way up to the present day movies or reality shows.

O carte spectaculoasa de aventuri si un ersonaj in pielea caruia mi-ar fi placut sa ma pun cat timp am fost copil.
Sa traiesti singur pe o insula necunoscuta si bantuita de canibali, reprezenta la vremea cand am citit cartea probabil cel mai extrem lucru pe care mi-l puteam imagina.
O carte superba!

This book is about a kid that leaves his parents to become a sailor at a young age. When he gets older, he finds himself shipwrecked on a deserted island--or at least he thinks it's deserted.

If didactic Christian verbosity is a virtue, Defoe stands among the giants of the same.

“Ahora miraba el mundo como algo remoto, con lo que yo no tenía nada que ver y de lo que nada esperaba, y de hecho nada deseaba: en pocas palabras, no tenía nada que ver con ese mundo, y difícilmente algún día tendría que ver algo con él; por tanto, pensé que así debía de verse después de la muerte.” 1 likes
