'Thus fear of danger is ten thousand times more terrifying than danger itself.’
Based on the real life Scottish castaway Alexander Selkirk, Robinson Crusoe is rich in detail, oftentimes profound and full of insight and perspective. A redemptive survival and coming of age story.
Why Novel North recommends
'Robinson Crusoe is rich in detail and believable. It’s both considered and insightful, and reflects the contemplations of those of us who’ve pondered how we would survive marooned on an island. It rightly deserves its consideration as one of the most the famous adventure stories written.'
