Joanna Theiss
Sound Commentary, April 2012

Despite being “retold,” the exploration, discovery and creativity which define Defoe’s original tale are here.  Indeed, McMillan’s added explanations of the narrative are so craftily inserted into the original, and the abridgment so smooth, that only a purist will mind.  Robinson Crusoe: Retold for Younger Readers makes the original Robinson Crusoe, which was written in the 1700s, accessible to listeners of all ages, because it is short, easy to understand, but still compelling. Jonathan Keeble, an English television and stage actor, reads Robinson Crusoe: Retold for Younger Readers, and he brings all of the intensity, high drama and suspense to the reading as an actor might on stage. © 2012 Sound Commentary Read complete review
