Free Audiobook - Robinson Crusoe

Get a free audiobook download of Robinson Crusoe ($20.97 Audible), by Daniel Defoe, narrated by John Lee, from Downpour (Blackstone Audio's retail site). There are a couple of low-cost editions, for that that like to read along, including a $1.99 edition from Bantam Classics.
Book Description
Shipwrecked and cast ashore onto an uninhabited island, Robinson Crusoe ingeniously carves out a solitary, primitive existence for 24 years. Eventually, he meets a young native whom he saves from death at the hands of cannibals. He calls him Man Friday and makes him his companion and servant.

Crusoe and Friday share in a variety of adventures, including a fierce battle with cannibals that culminates in the heroes recapturing a mutinous ship and returning to England.

Based partly on the real-life experiences of Scottish sailor Alexander Selkirk, Defoe's novel of human endurance in an exotic, faraway land exerts a timeless appeal and has taken its rightful place among the great works of Western civilization.
