Two centuries after mankind drove itself to the brink of extinction, a new civilization rises from the ashes of what was once Great Britain. But when deadly strife breaks out among their ranks, the teenage son of one prominent family finds himself fleeing in the dead of night, only to wind up shipwrecked on the forbidden continent of America.

What did you love best about Robinson Crusoe 2244?

Yes, It was compelling. I loved seeing the story through the boy's eyes.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the honest voice the author was able to convey of the little boy struggling to understand a grown up world. My children were also compelled to hear what was going to happen next. E. J. Robinson's use of details painted an articulate picture of an oppressive world transformed.

What does Malk Williams bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mark Williams gave an authenticity to the story. My children loved Mark's talented use of different voices.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I am a mother of young children so I don't get to do much in one setting!

Any additional comments?

I look forward to reading/ hearing more from E.J. Robinson.
