After many years of assuming that Robinson Crusoe was a rollicking boys own yarn of shipwreck and adventure I was immensely surprised to find that there is much more to this novel than that. It is very much a product of its time concerned with questions of survival, man's relationships with nature (think Thomas Hobbes) and with religious beliefs.

A bit of a slow starter, but worth sticking with it. The main portion is a fascinating depiction of solitary survival, eventually leading to some intense interactions with cannibals. Survival literature at its finest and most descriptive.
