Robinson Crusoe

Gelesen von Denny Sayers (d. 2015)

(4,524 Sterne; 966 Bewertungen)

Daniel Defoe’s The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe of York, Mariner (1719) is considered by many the first English novel. Based on the real-life experiences of the castaway Alexander Selkirk, the book has had a perennial appeal among readers of all ages-–especially the young adult reading public–-who continue to find inspiration in the inventive resourcefulness of its hero, sole survivor of a shipwreck who is marooned on an uninhabited island.

Especially poignant, after more than two decades of unbroken solitude, is the affection that Robinson develops for Friday, another survivor fleeing certain death at the hands of enemy tribesmen from the South American continent. (Summary by Denny Sayers) (13 hr 55 min)

Superb, I have been completely enthralled.

I can't imagine how difficult it must have been to give life to the antiquated text however the reader did the most amazing job of it. I have listened to hundreds of audio books and this has been one of the very best.

I was at first unsure of the reader as he was slow and seemed a bit hesitant but it grew on me and eventually became the characterization of Robinson Caruso

Enjoyed this reading....especially liked the difference between the childhood version I remember from my youth and this, the original. This experience has led me to find original versions of other childhood favorites. My sincere thanks to those readers and other volunteers who participate in this program (and my local public library who downloads such tales to my iPad....Great resource to an 85-year old fan of all things readable. Have had a Public library card for almost 80 years....best investment in time I ever have had....six public libraries so far in my life.....My hat is off to all those librarians! Kudos to all! B J, library fan!

Go ahead. Read it.

If you enjoy adventure and reading about it then this book is for you. Many people wonder if placed in a similar situation how and if they could survive, including me. This story is the classic shipwreck tale. Narration is very good.

quite enjoyable!
