Book Review: Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe

In my opinion, this is the worst book I have ever read.

My English class at school has been reading this for the entire last semester and I disliked it from the beginning. We are reading an unabridged version, so there are all sorts of spelling, grammar, capitalization, and punctuation mistakes in it — which, for a grammar Nazi like me, is like pure torture. The story line is fairly predictable, it’s hard to follow what is going on, Crusoe tracks each day very carefully for about three pages and then jumps ahead four years, etc. I don’t think it is very well written. It’s a classic, but classic doesn’t mean good.
