I believe my exact words when I finished this book were, “I’m FREE!!!!” It seriously sapped so much out of me.
Many years ago, back when I still thought I was going to be an 18th-century scholar (and over the next few months, I will repeat this refrain when I sift through more unread books that I collected), I purchased Robinson Crusoe and then ran from it in fear, because I’d heard that it was a slog. Finally, I conquered my fear and just read the damn thing already. It’s hefty, but I feel like a conqueror! I read Robinson Crusoe! In my full review, I throw plenty of shade at Robinson (who is a serious idiot) and give a shoutout to narfna’s Goodreads review. Fun times ahead!
