So whats up with Robinson Crusoe, and what do you guys think of its author Daniel Defoe? Ive almost finished reading Two Years Before the Mast and this book has come up again. Ive seen this book referenced in other books too, but no one seems to be talking about it anymore. Why is this? I guess what im asking is, since im interested in reading the book, how did some of you like it, and do you think its good enough for me to give it a try?
