About the story:
The story is about a son of the businessman, who traveled by ship which was wrecked on the rock. Only he survived. He was himself , but he didn’t know it. He adapted slowly. Second day he started to search of some dwelling. He went through the forest to the cave. When he saw the cave, he started to dream about a nice garden in the front of the cave. He went into the cave. The cave was big, but uncomfortable too. He had to make some implement, because he had to provide wood. He wanted to catch some animals too.

At the end, after ten years, they stopped a ship and went back in York. Robinson found his mother there. Robinson and Friday opened a shop. And all were happy.
The book is interesting, but I read this book for several time and for that reason the story wasn’t as thrilling as I read this book first time.
