This book. I don’t think I’ve ever disliked a classic this much. Even when I was reading Kafka, which made me feel terrible, I still had a lot of respect for the book because it blurs the line between fiction and reality to such an extend that you feel debased and uncomfortable. I don’t really have any respect for Robinson Crusoe .

The main thing that puzzles me is how this book turned into the thousands of survival adaptations. How?! Robinson doesn’t have to fight to survive. He has a whole damn ship on his shore with enough supplies for years. He has a dog and a parrot and cats to keep him company, some bibles to read when he’s bored, enough gunpowder to last him for thirty years, enough rum and other booze for about twenty years, tobacco to smoke… The only thing he’s missing is some more clothes, but who cares about those in the Caribbean anyway.

At one point near the end he mentions shipping off a few women for his men on the island. That was about the moment I knew I didn’t want to read this book ever again.

Gee Robinson, how nice of you to allow different religions in the island you yourself decided is yours, over subjects that are stuck there with a gun wielding megalomaniac Englishman.

Robinson Crusoe is probably a good example of how people thought during that particular time period – but if that’s so, I don’t care for that time period.

I just read this for the Classics Club as well. It was my spin pick. I have to review it but I think I’ll just link to your review because it is spectacular and you took ALL the words right out of my mouth, lol.
