Robinson Crusoe

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Daniel Defoe

Narrated By: Mark F. Smith

Date: June 2010

Duration: 11 hours 27 minutes

Summary:

Shipwrecked and castaway, Daniel DeFoe's hard-luck character is still the standard for "growing where you're planted." Captured by pirates, he makes his break in a small boat and undergoes desperate adventures before winning his way back to civilization. But Crusoe proves willing to chance his luck a second time when, after sweating his way to prosperity as a planter in Brazil, he undertakes a voyage that isn't needful... and is marooned on a small island off South America.

Crusoe shows the value of single-minded labor as he pursues ways to feed, shelter, and clothe himself. His ardent wish is to escape his island - why is it that the only people who come there are cannibals? But he spends more than two decades in isolation before acquiring a sidekick - the man Friday you've probably heard of. And who would guess his way to salvation would depend on leading a last-ditch fight against a shipful of mutineers?

    This was very well read. The reader is enjoyable to listen to, very good story-telling skills. As for this Daniel Defoe classic book, I love it, at times it is repetitive, and the ending leaves me perplexed everytime. I have always felt like this book should just have ended without the wolves section. With him being rescued and eventually returning to his island to visit. But perhaps reading the 2nd and 3rd books will rememdy that feeling of a rushed ending.

    Adventure, survival and historic. Fantastic. Hard to put down. A taste of life and survival in the mid 17th century.

    Great narrator, a gentle, calm voice perfectly suited to the story.

    Mr Smith’s narration in his gentle American accent perfectly suits this book.
