Pretty much what you might expect. A mother, father and four sons shipwrecked on what they claim is an island although no one ever bothers to circumnavigate it so we'll never know for sure :) .
Its quite Vernian, in that it spends a lot of time giving mildly interesting and often incorrect information on plants and animals. Usually involving how best to kill them ;) .
I did like the unintentional irony. Sometimes the father would get worried at how callous the sons are getting while praising there killing powers the rest of them time. At one point someone asks why god would created something as vicious as a wild cat, he says while holding up the cat which he just killed :(. There are also some sights you can't unpicture, a small child clubbing penguins to death is the sort of thing that will stay with you.
Anyway there just isn't enough here to separate it from the hundreds of other shipwreck stories so i deducted a star... then i put the star back because of the humour.
There's some genuine warm family teasing here and the parents in particular can be quite sarcastic. However in the end i took the star off once more because of the geography.
Sorry but if you have a hippo, kangaroo and capybara in the same small piece of land something has gone horribly wrong, or your at the zoo :lol .

Maybe i should make a shelf for books only worth reading if your immortal :) . ( )

First read over 50 years ago & it hasn't lost any of it's appeal. Yes the island is rather fantastic since they find so much there and they are incredibly lucky and resourceful, but that doesn't take any of it's delight away.

I just finished listening to the Audible "Included" version narrated by Frederick Davidson and I thoroughly enjoyed his narration.

Filled with family, humor, challenges, resourcefulness, and love

"For many days we had been tempest-tossed...the raging storm increased in fury until on the seventh day all hope was lost." So begins this delightful adventure story. The Robinson family, a Swiss pastor, his wife, and four sons, will emerge alive from this terrible storm, bringing to land two dogs and a shipload of livestock: hens, pigeons, and geese.
Inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, this uplifting tale relates a family's ingenuity and courage as they struggle to survive on an exotic tropical island. ( )

Wikipedia - "Johann David Wyss (German: [ˈjoːhan ˈdaːfɪd ˈviːs]; May 28, 1743 – January 11, 1818) was a Swiss author, best remembered for his book The Swiss Family Robinson (Der schweizerische Robinson) (1812). He was born and died in Bern. It is said that he was inspired by Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, but wanted to write a story from which his own children would learn, as the father in the story taught important lessons to his children. The Swiss Family Robinson was first published in German in 1812 and translated into English two years later. It has since become one of the most popular books of all time. The book was edited by his son, Johann Rudolf Wyss, a scholar who wrote the Swiss national anthem. Another son, Johann Emmanuel Wyss, illustrated the book." This copy is translated from the French translation by Madame Voiart, considered more lucid, spirited and expressive.

This classic didn't quite hold up to the passage of time. The plot was lacking and everything that the family faced they were able to overcome with seemingly little to no effort. Thankfully the father (who was the narrator) was so well versed in everything from zoology to carpentry, hunting to botany, everything in between that everything was able to be spelled out for his children and so that they could successfully survive on the island they were stranded on. I'm not saying they couldn't have survived without this knowledge, I'm just saying that it all felt a bit forced and the vast spread of knowledge felt too convenient. In addition, it drove me crazy that the narrator never gave the wife/mother's name and that she was only referred to as "the mother" or "my wife". She seemed to play such a small role in keeping the house and cooking for her 4 male children and husband that she could have been taken out entirely and it would have made no difference to the story. All the children were given names and played a role at some point, so why couldn't she? I guess she did have "magic bag" that was full of seeds that they ended up planting, but that's about the only significant role I could see of her. Unfortunately this didn't hold up to the passage of time. :( ( )

For many days we had been tempest-tossed.
Already the tempest had continued six days; on the seventh its fury seemed still increasing; and the morning dawned upon us without a prospect of hope, for we had wandered so far from the right track, and were so forcibly driven toward the southeast, that none on board knew where we were.
The tempest had lasted six long and terrible days.
The storm had lasted for six days - and even then, far from subsiding, it seemed to gather even greater fury. (Audrey Butler version)
