User Summary: You find yourself marooned on an island off the Brazilian coast. You must find a way to survive alone in the island and, eventually, reach home.
Guillermo's Thoughts: This book is based on Daniel Defoe's classic novel, Robinson Crusoe. While one of the story paths follows the plot of the original novel pretty closely, the book includes several successful pathways that deviate quite a bit from Defoe's story. Overall, I found the book to be a fast-paced, entertaining read. The author succeeds admirably in evoking a sense of danger and suspense throughout the story, and quite a bit of strategy and reasoning are required to reach the successful endings. Recommended.
