Book Beginnings: Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe

'I was  born in the year 1632 in the city of York, of a good family, though not of that country, my father being a foreigner of Bremen who settled first at Hull.'

I think I tried to read this book when I got it as part of a box-set aged about ten. I think at the time I found it a little dry, and to be honest it isn't the fastest paced I've ever read. But it's not far off what I'd expect.

I'm linking up to Book Beginnings @ Rose City Reader, also I'd like to apologise for this post having been in draft for over 24 hours. 

I have a vague idea of what happens in this one. It should be good, what d'you think?
