    It's really sad that people judge books from the 17th century from their 21st century politically correct perspective You don't have to agree with Defoe's worldview and religious beliefs to like the book I'm repulsed by Homer's beliefs but I know his works deserve to be classicsPeople who think this book is boring probably think hikes through majestic mountains or quiet afternoons in a beautiful garden are boring This book is slow at times But the slowest parts are the best Defoe is a master of detail And the action is much exciting when it comes after the calm A book with only action would be boring to me not to mention corny eg Treasure Island This is hands down my favorite novel of all time Rich detail gripping plot profound character development insightful meditations and the meeting of two radically different worlds in Robinson and the cannibals I never stop reading this book When I finish I start again I love Robinson and Friday as if they were a real life father and brotherBTW There is an audio recording by Ron Keith that is spectacular The publisher is Recorded Books
