Robinson Crusoe

I had heard of Robinson Crusoe, but it was quite another thing to listen to it on audiobook. Having been written so long ago, it feels like a time capsule, even though I think it was referring to some time before when it was written. The interminable speculations on the meaning of God's intentions is on the one hand tedious and on the other intriguing to look at the world through different perspective lenses, which is what he called a telescope. I also wondered about the actual ecology and anthropology of the Caribbean islands and its reception at the time.
