Robinson Crusoe is an interesting book written by Daniel Defoe. This book is about a man that was stranded on a tropical island alone and desperate for help. He goes to great lengths to try and survive. He does incredible work trying to survive. However, there are some setbacks such as an earthquake. He describes it as “would have overturned the strongest building that could be supposed to have stood on the Earth.”
Crusoe begins to get used to all of these misfortunes. Many new events start to happen at the same time as well. One of these events include meeting Friday. Crusoe teaches Friday many new things. Friday and Crusoe also become very good friends.
The story goes on and you must read to find out what happens next! I would recommend this book to an older crowd such as ages 13 – 16. This of course depends on what version you read.
In the end, this book is very good and I recommend you to read it. This is a classic that you will love. This book is one of the few books that you will ever forget about!
