Sintesi dell'editore

Swept off course by a raging storm, a Swiss pastor, his wife, and their four young sons are shipwrecked on an uncharted tropical island. Thus begins the classic story of survival and adventure that has fired the imaginations of readers since it first appeared in 1812. With optimism and boundless enthusiasm, the Robinson family undertakes the extraordinary task of constructing a home for themselves and exploring the primitive island filled with strange and beautiful creatures and exotic fruits and plants.

Rich in action and suspense, this exhilarating novel takes us to a faraway place of danger and beauty, where the courageous Robinson family embarks on a thrilling new life of adventure and discovery.

Excellent book - poor quality

I have loved this book since I was a child and was excited about listening too it with my children. Since this was recorded this year I thought the quality wouldn't be an issue, but it was. It had the mid-range rattle of a poorly recorded book. Very disappointed as my boys will not listen to it because it hurts their ears.

An excellent translation.

Very different ending from other translations I have read. The mother, Elizabeth was more fleshed out. The boys grew up and werre more realistic,.

Abridged would be better

This version is just too long. It's a great story but drags on and on sounding the same after a while. It's the same thing over and over. We never finished it. Should have tried the abridged version.

Not the Classic Translation Edition

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I bought this thinking it would be the classic story in it's original translation for my kids to listen to over the summer. Much to my dismay it is a re-translated version and has been modernized and much of the descriptive beauty in the story is lacking because of this. There are other editions that are much better.

Not exactly Unabridged.

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

Family shipwreck adventure. This family is shipwrecked on a southern Pacific Island. they are very competent, pious, and also lucky. The island has an amazing combination of animals and plants that (frankly) couldn't exist in that area. It's still a great read/listen, so just suspend your disbelief and enjoy.

What did you like best about this story?

It's a wonderful excuse to look up all sorts of animals and plants to show to my children.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Breathe! The reader needed to take a beat between scenes or when it changes character's voice.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A wonderful adventure for the whole family.

Great for engineers

I realize it's a classic but if you're not interested in the bits and bolts of how the family survives on the island then this isn't your book. With very little discernible plot - unless the plot is construction methods - this one can be tedious. Go over to Robinson Crusoe for a more adventurous read.

Not what I remembered

Would you ever listen to anything by Johann David Wyss again?

I remember loving this book as a child... but on rereading it, I found it nauseating - the author was in line with his times, but thinks very poorly of the abilities of women; the protagonist was a God figure, always right and always moralizing; and the wanton butchering of the wildlife on the island, for the sake of killing rather than survival, did not impress me.

What didn’t you like about Norman Dietz’s performance?

Nope. I disliked his voice and reading style was very monotonous.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Only redeeming quality was that I was free and done with this book after losing 13 hours of my life...
