This book is a very dense read. Be prepared to read chapters that were literally written in the 18th century, so the grammar, spelling, and manner of speaking are different and sometimes difficult to get through. My favorite chapters are the one about the encounter with the cannibal island, Alexander Selkirk who survives for years on a deserted island, and the stories of Anne Bonny and Mary Read. Oh, and the one about the priest/farmer who is not quite who he seems. But yes, remember-- very dense.
