Would you listen to Return to Robinson Island again? Why?

YES-I will listen to it again. When I was a young child, Swiss Family Robinson was my favorite book. The way TJ Hoisington has continued the story is amazing! TJ put just enough historical data in the story, but also introduced a brand new adventure. I couldn’t put the book down.

What did you like best about this story?

Mr. Hoisington took a balanced approach between adventure, suspense, and romance. It kept my attention the whole time. Also, the book read like I was watching a movie.

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

I loved his voice! His British accent was engaging.

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

No. I listened to it over several days.

Any additional comments?

Great book. I encourage everyone to read it!
