Robinson Crusoe

I finally finished reading Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe. It took me about a month...it is not short (over 400 solid pages) and it was the unabridged version. I decided to read the book because my dad was talking about it. He read an abridged version of it and thought it was a good story. As I read it I did figure out why he liked it. Anyway, about halfway through I almost gave up and seriously considered giving up reading because it felt a lot like a homework assignment. I am glad that I read the book, though if you aren't an avid reader, I would not recommend it. Now I am going to find something easier to read that doesn't feel like work.
I am surprised at how much more there was to the story than Robinson being on the island. He had more adventures in the Africa, South America and Asia.
Has anyone else read the book?

The comment from Amandajean was really from me.
