The book is a fictional autobiography of the title character, whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer, a castaway who spends years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued.
Amazing twists and a good feels book
I was obliged to read this for my novel course. It took me a great while and a lot of powering through to finish this, but I find the result rewarding.
Let's just say you have to read it to experience it 😅LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
It was really good book
Engaging. Thought provoking
It is a classic, what could I add?
Not a very good book for class read aloud. Didn't even finish the book before the end of the year. Boring words. Good if you are in a highly advanced college but nothing else.

Reading this was worse than subjecting myself to 17 hours of torture. So boring there was barely any character development. There was only 1 exciting event and I found that forcing me to watch idiotic musical.lys was more educational, has more health benefits, and didn't make me want to get on life support.
This was overall a great and truly enjoyable book! It was quite an adventure and I definitely don't regret reading it. Keeps you guessing and on your toes, wondering what in the world is gonna happen next! Definitely would recommend reading it if you love travel and adventures and stories of the humans ability to survive and keep fighting and carrying on in spite of horrible circumstances and crushing adversity with the help of God, prayer and faith. Very encouraging! Also a great reminder that amazing blessings often come after hardships if you keep fighting and never give up. God always brings you out even better off then you were before if you are faithful and persevere!

If anyone says this is just a boring classic, they probably just don't understand what they are reading. If you can get past the old English it is a very enjoyable book and is worth the time.
