I never read the book before -- I was very pleasantly surprised to find it was a very interesting and engaging read! Quite a bit different than most of the movie versions I have seen. I also never realized that at the end, Robin Crusoe mentions that he had further adventures after getting OFF the island in a sequel to this novel, that I'm now downloading! Highly recommend this classic novel!
What a great find! I am so glad I discovered William Hope Hodgson's works here! I first read "Carnacki, the Ghost Finder" because it was highly recommended by other readers, and went on to read this book, the "Boats of the 'Glen-Carrig.'" I could not put it down! It reminds me of a cross between Pirates of the Caribbean and the Swiss Family Robinson - with LOTS of action and creepy monsters. The author does such a great job at describing the monsters and the landscapes and the people that it is easy to envision them. The ending is just wonderful, and I can't wait to read the rest of his works! This book would make a great movie!! I'm so glad Manybooks.net is making these old books available, I would have never read this book otherwise.
This book is timeless. Very short, but well worth reading, especially during times when you need some encouragement. This book has gotten me through some of the toughest times in my life, even though it's over 100 years old!!
