The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe is one of the first adventure stories ever written. It chronicles Crusoe, and eventually his servant Friday, after he becomes shipwrecked on an island. Not just a piece of literary history, Crusoe is also a thrilling tale and an excellent commentary on imperialism and the foundation of human history. Robison Crusoe was the best selling book at the end of the 19th century and, due to such a compelling story packed with so much symbolism, has been made into 700 different versions and adaptations
This review is concerning the way this specific version was printed and published. It’s a cheap print. No illustrations. The chapter start in the middle of the page. If you are looking for a beautiful book, skip this one. I’m so tired of ordering books and then discovering they are a cheap reprint. I want my children to love beautifully written books and part of the love comes from a well put together book.
Yes, all of the written words that are supposed to be there are there. As with other cheap reprints I am going to take a guess that there are also typos. Does my head in to have to get rid of these terrible junk books.
