Publisher's Summary

A horrible tempest hurls an abandoned ship against the shoal rocks with the force of a hurricane. Once the tremendous storm passes, a family appears from within the crushed vessel. Now a father, a mother, and their four sons must carve out a new life for themselves on an unchartered tropical island. Come and join the Swiss Family Robinson, as they learn how to survive while battling the savage forces of nature and discover the wonders of their own paradise.

    Story
    "Very Far Fetched Story"

    I realise it is fiction but seriously? how extremely lucky were the Swiss Family Robinson to land on an island where they came across so many things they knew exactly what to do with to make so many things so very easily?

    I couldn't suspend my disbelief enough to really get in to the story.

    Story
    "A Wordy Classic"

    The readers voice was the best preferred to listen to by myself and my children but it is a very long, wordy version.

    Story
    "Shipwrecked!"
    If you could sum up The Swiss Family Robinson in three words, what would they be?

    shipwrecked adventure resourcefulness


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The pastor seemed to have infinite knowledge of all subjects, and knew the exact use for every plant or animal they encountered. This was a little hard to believe after awhile.


    Which character – as performed by B.J. Harrison – was your favorite?

    Pretty much the whole story was in the voice of the father, from his point of view, without different inflections for different characters, so no voice stands out except that of the narrator.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall, a very enjoyable story. The voice of the reader was pleasant to listen to, and the story was engaging.

    Story
    "Boys love it!"

    My two boys loved this adventure, and listen to it over and over again.
    The narrator does a good job in the telling of this story.

    "Not complete"

    This is only half of the actual novel! It is not complete. Buyer beware. Much.

    Story
    "This sucks a lot"

    I had to read the puffin classic version of this for school and I was just going to list to the audio book but this audio book is still in old English wear the books you buy now are more modernized. Also the audio book had 36 chapters and the puffin classic only had 18 and I am very disappointed I spent my free trial on this crappy book.
