    The fore father of the genre of English novel

    The book can be called the nearest precursor of the very genre of English novels . Surely the magnum opus of Defoe .. It's an acknowledged English classic but i would suggest it mainly for the better understanding of J.M Coetzee's Foe .
    UBSPD has done a very good job though the printing and page quality is not very good ,even copy has some pages where last lines have got cut with the page . However the books gives a chapter wise summery at the end which is very helpful .

    Awesome Book :-)

    This book is really great it has an introduction to the author and the story in the front pages and a chapter-wise summary with critical appreciation in the last section of the book. The printing is like that of a school book or may I say old novels a bit large and dark but it can be useful to those who do not want to strain their eyes too much. The story is awesome as always suitable to readers of all ages. But all said and done Flipkart's service is just AWESOME BLOSSOM CHERRY TOSSOM I got ...

    Flipkart is playing tricks with buyers.

    Actual cost of this book: Robinson Crusoe by UBSPD is Rs.90 but flipkart has priced it for Rs.110 and giving us discounts on that.

    I bought it for Rs.105 and when I received it, I got printed price of Rs.90.

    I used to trust Flipkart, but flipkart has broken my trust. We should choose the products very carefully here.

    So think twice before buying anything from flipkart.
