The Life and Adventures of Peter Wilkins, Volume 1


Read by James K. White

(4 stars; 5 reviews)

This is a story about a Cornish man who becomes stranded on an island and survives much like Robinson Crusoe did. Although he finds enough to eat, he is still lonely. Eventually he is saved by a woman named Youwarkee who has wings and can fly. They marry, have children, and live happily ever after. But the listener is also treated to stories about the discovery of strange lands, and strange peoples not unlike the adventures found in Gulliver's Travels. In essence it becomes an exploration into the possibilities of a utopian world blended with fantasy and science fiction. - Summary by James K. White (7 hr 31 min)

I didn’t enjoy this story as much as I thought I would.
