Not complete

This is only half of the actual novel! It is not complete. Buyer beware. Much.

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

shipwrecked adventure resourcefulness

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

The pastor seemed to have infinite knowledge of all subjects, and knew the exact use for every plant or animal they encountered. This was a little hard to believe after awhile.

Which character – as performed by B.J. Harrison – was your favorite?

Pretty much the whole story was in the voice of the father, from his point of view, without different inflections for different characters, so no voice stands out except that of the narrator.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?


Any additional comments?

Overall, a very enjoyable story. The voice of the reader was pleasant to listen to, and the story was engaging.
