    This is devided into two parts The first being the recension of the story Robinson Crusoe itself and the second being a short review on the Oxford World's Classic editionPART ISomewhere and somehow in our life we do come across the title of Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe A book published in April 1719 which is still very much known to us almost three centuries later But is it still recommendable or do people only read it because it's a classic and that is what you do with classics?I have to admit I did not read the book until I had to and when I started reading I did it with a certain reluctance It's not like I do not enjoy a good classic book from time to time like reading Shakespeare or novels by Jane Austen or Charles Dickens Yet this book was a hard nut to crack for me Of course you needed a pair of pages before you got used to the style of language but all in all Robinson Crusoe is written in a fairly modern way of the English language So what was it that took me about a week until I finally was able to read than just 5 pages without falling asleep?The story of Crusoe's landing on a deserted isle needs a long time to actually come to pass The plotline feels like being stretched out as long as possible in order to fill the pages with words If you want to read Robinson Crusoe and expect a highly interesting account of an adventure you might be a bit disappointed What was fairly adventurous in 1719 is not necessarily so in 2010 Nonetheless if you look at the story from a different point of view namely his coping with the basics of life being stranded on a deserted island and his hard labouring in order to survive is a uiet interesting storySo what I did while reading the story was to change my attitude towards it Once I had changed it I was able to read on for a long while and I was finished with the book within a week for I still was taking my time Yet I cannot say I would recommend it to everyone It's not a book that I really enjoyed reading I rather felt uiet neutral towards it But if you want to read about how a man is able to cope with the situation of being alone on an island in the 18th century go on and read it for it's not that hard to read at allPART IIFurther I want to say a few words on the Oxford World's Classics edition If you happen to need an edition of Robinson Crusoe I highly recommend this one With a very detailed Introduction of the book and its author a chronology of the life of Daniel Defoe together with historical events a chronology of Robinson Crusoe's Voyage and a map of the World such as it was in 1719 it helps to fully understand the time and literary era As I said in part 1 I had to read the book for university and it helped a lot for my studies Such details can rarely be found in other editions
