    Lenore Lester was perfectly content with her quiet country life, caring for her father, and having no desire for marriage. She took steps to remain inconspicuous and tried her best to show indifference--but to no avail! The irresistible Duke of Eversleigh had found her out and was quite persistent in his affections....

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    It didn't sound like a bad story line, but I didn't listen to it for very long. The low voice of non-animated woman's voice was too frustrating, and it was hard to tell which character was speaking.

    First published in 1719, Daniel Defoe’s Robinson Crusoe is commonly considered as the first novel in English. Based on the real-life experience of Alexander Selkirk, who spent four years on a Pacific island, it is the account of the 28-year stay of an English sailor on a nearly uninhabited island near America.

    What made the experience of listening to Robinson Crusoe the most enjoyable?

    Although I can see why many people would find this reading slow, it is perfect for our purposes. I found the writing to be a reason for difficult reading. I tried to help my son read it in places, and I felt very frustrated by its flow. I decided to come to Audible and played several different samples for my son. I laughed when he chose this one. It is the perfect speed for him to follow the words with the narrator, which eases my conscience since it is a main purpose of him reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    You've made a painful and necessary task more bearable. Thank you!
