Publisher's Summary

One of the world's best-loved stories of shipwreck and survival, The Swiss Family Robinson portrays a family's struggle to create a new life for themselves on a strange and fantastic tropical island. Blown off course by a raging storm, the family - a Swiss pastor, his wife, their four young sons, plus two dogs and a shipload of livestock - must rely on one another in order to adapt to their needs the natural wonders of their exotic new home.

Inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, this classic story of invention and adventure has fired the imaginations of readers since it first appeared in 1812.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I just might. The book is a well made classic that offers many awe inspiring mental pictures for the imagination.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The tree house is very entertaining in its description however I really felt throughout the book as if I were being fed a bitter medicine with a spoonful of honey. If you pay close attention a reader could easily come away with a working knowledge of a diverse number topics such as religion, plants, animals, sailing, and several others.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He offered a good fatherly feel to the entire story.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved how appreciative the entire family were to each other in every instance. This makes me want to improve the relations in my own family.


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this for what it is however it seemed as though the necessary suspension of disbelief was stretched pretty thin in places.
