Professional reviews

"There is something archetypal and almost seductive about the idea of being stranded on a deserted island. The subject has never been better dealt with than in one of the English language's first novels, based on the true-life experience of a Scots shoemaker named Alexander Selkirk. This full-cast BBC production seamlessly follows Crusoe's 28-year struggle for survival through reedy-voiced, understated monologues, heartfelt flashbacks, and frighteningly realistic pirate and storm scenes. Through vocal nuances Crusoe is portrayed not as a hero, but as a flawed, resourceful, and altogether human character--most likely as Defoe intended. B.P. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
