  • Challenging Read, Good Book

    By CruzFamAA
    Robinson Crusoe is a great novel, but it is definitely a more challenging read that requires time and patience. Daniel DeFoe’s incessant use of commas, semicolons, and excessively long sentences can confuse readers. However, this is a great classic, published in 1719! It takes patience to read this novel; in fact, most people agree that it doesn’t truly get interesting until around Chapter 8-9. Robinson Crusoe discusses in length the cannibalism of some of the Caribbeans, and the shooting of several animals and people. But, it ultimately has a good message and a happy ending!
  • Boring

    By Sowatee
    Difficult to understand languge. Author drivels on and on about unnecessary and insignificant details.
  • A classic tale we all know - well worth a read

    Interesting to read this 300 years after it was written. The writing style and some terms took some getting used to but the story telling manner was appealing. It’s a well known classic that should be read.
