'I made him know his Name should be Friday, which was the Day I sav'd his Life...I likewise taught him to say Master' Robinson Crusoe's seafaring adventures are abruptly ended when he is shipwrecked, the solitary survivor on a deserted island. He gradually creates a life for himself, building a house, cultivating the land, and making a companion from the native whose life he saves. Daniel Defoe's enthralling story-telling and imaginatively detailed descriptions have ensured that his fiction masquerading as fact remains one of the most famous stories in English literature. On one level a simple adventure story, the novel also raises profound questions about moral and spiritual values, society, and man's abiding acquisitiveness. This new edition includes a scintillating Introduction and notes that illuminate the historical context. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.

“The original and best”

“This book really drew me in.I couldnt stop reading”

Follow Robinson Crusoe's daily battles to survive. I recommend this book to readers of Treasure Island. Lots of action and adventure are stored in one book, whether its fighting pirates or escaping cannibals.

“A bit boring”

I probably only gave this book three stars because I hate giving books less than that, but I did find it a little dull. I thought that it would be an adventure story, because of the reviews on my book (I have a copy... More
