    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.

He had always longed for adventure on sea but was never allowed because of his father. He runs away to a voyage which comes out as a failure but he doesn't want to go back home due to failure so he aboards another voyage where he is taken as a slave, then escapes somehow with a Portugese ship to Brazil. He then buys a plantation as that is what makes men wealthy but he still longs for adventure and goes on another voyage which ends up in failure and he is stuck on an island alone. For almost 15 years he sees no life until he finds Friday, a prisoner let go from a ship. over the years alone he learns to enjoy the small things in life and really becomes a complete man. He then finds a way back to England where he marries and has kids, but when his wife dies he goes back to sea. This book is awesome for one main reason, it really shows us how we shouldn't take everything we have for granted because one day we might just lose all of it. And that we should take the time to enjoy life's simple details.

    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.
