Cliff Notes version tells central story

(3.5 stars)

This is part of Mr. Sayers' (the reader's) Robinson Crusoe project. Elsewhere on this site are his excellent readings of the original book and derivative works- Robinson Crusoe Told in Words of One Syllable and Robinson Crusoe (Written/Told?) Anew for Choldren. There may well be more I haven't found yet. This is actually more of a Cliff Notes version of a Cliff Notes version of a Cliff Notes version. Clocking in at a mere fifteen minutes, great swaths of the story are cut from this. Only the middle (and most interesting) section of the book is condensed here. Decent summation of that section, considering its scant length.
