Robinson Crusoe is an imaginary story about a merchant-adventure marooned on a desert island off the northern coast of South America. Daniel Defoe wrote this novel in 1719.He based the story partly on the experiences of a Scottish sailor, Alexander Selkirk, but defoe’s realistic account of Crusoe’s like is much more interesting, and has become one of the most popular books in English.
The book explains how Crusoe cleverly manages to make himself at home while he lives on the island.
From my point of view the unique part that connects at this point in the story is that after living alone for 26 years, Crusoe rescues a man from cannibals. He calls the man Friday because he met him on that day. Friday becomes Crusoe’s trusted friend and servant. The term, “man Friday” has come to mean any trusted servant. Finally after 28 years, Crusoe and Friday board a passing ship and are taken to England.
“Robinson Crusoe” is a lively, exciting book that sweep the reader away in to amazing world.
Although the English of the book is “old fashion”, I recommend it from the bottom of my heart!

As I watch Crusoe struggle to survive alone on a
