Robinson Crueso by Daniel Defoe

Robinson Crusoe was a little of a disappointment because I had been excepting more action. Robinson Crusoe is a very similar story to that of the Swiss family Robinson however the Robinson's are able to have more conversations and tend to have more gripping adventures. After the first initial disappointments I did find Robinson Crusoe very interesting if not gripping.

Robinson Crusoe is alone on a desert island after being shipwrecked on some rocks nearby. At first he gives up all hopes of  survival but then he discovers that things are not as bad as they seem and he still had a  good chance of life.

I don't really have a favourite character in this book because for most of the time there is only one character anyway. Robinson Crusoe is a determined man who strives to get things done and is not scared of working hard. Using many amazing and often challenging equipment he makes himself a home to live in until he dies or is rescued. This sort of determination is very inspiring and makes me long to do things even if they take a lot of effort.
