    1. This is a classic of English literature, but that does not mean it will be popular today. It moves very slowly and is overtly a tract for Christianity, though I would say a well considered tract. Most young people will not find the book readable. Nevertheless, for anyone interested in the history of the English novel, it is a must read.

    2. It starts off with Crusoe at 18 years old in England. He had always longed for adventure on sea but was never allowed because of his father. He runs away to a voyage which comes out as a failure but he doesn't want to go back home due to failure so he aboards another voyage where he is taken as a slave, then escapes somehow with a Portugese ship to Brazil.

    5. This book is about a kid that leaves his parents to become a sailor at a young age. When he gets older, he finds himself shipwrecked on a deserted island--or at least he thinks it's deserted.
