Robinson Crusoe, by Daniel Defoe

Robinson Crusoe, by Daniel Defoe, is about Robinson Crusoe himself that escapes the formal life to become a merchant. Through becoming a merchant, Robinson becomes very succesful. On a voyage, Cursoe is shipwrecked. There he survives on the island for many years. One day, he encounters cannibals and saves their victim who soon becomes his slave/assistant. Through the two of them, the fight the cannibals and Robinson finds a way home to Europe. There he establishes a family and shares his knowledge of the island.

The book Robinson Crusoe is in my opinion a very good book. It is very descriptive of his adventures in life. There is lots of adventure and action, an always keeps me on my toes. Also, the author keeps the intensity of the story realistic. Robinson Crusoe is a very good book, I recommend it.
