Robinson Crusoe was marooned for 28 years, during which he kept meticulous journals, which narrator Jonathan Keeble recounts in his understated style. However, when Crusoe survives the wild sea and an earthquake or describes his daily life or a dream-vision he experiences, Keeble's performance intensifies. Listeners will feel they're with Crusoe as he reacts with trepidation when he discovers a human footprint after 18 years of solitude. Most moving is Crusoe's relationship with Friday, particularly when they unknowingly rescue Friday's own father. Lovely musical interludes connect the disparate sections.
