Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe

Date: March 10, 2007
Recommendation: I would rather be stranded on a desert island than read this book again

Is this suppose to be Robinson Crusoe or Mary Poppins meets pissed off Santa Clause?

Look, you all know the story - man is stranded on island, man jerks off (Defoe neglected to mention this amidst the minutia of details, although I presume it is implied in sentences like "I stayed another 2 years on the island in such a state"), man procures a local slave, man waxes poetic on the nature of God, man returns home, and finally man makes a fortune discovering that his Google stock has matured in his absence.
