Gets two stars for an adequate reading... should have been British rather than American, as Robinson Crusoe was from York.
But more disappointing, is the fact that this version is incomplete, lacking large chunks of the story, and the chapter breaks are randomly inconsistent. ...and the repeated apologies for DeFoe's racism... PUH-LEEZE!! The story was written long ago and far away, in a time and place that we can scarcely comprehend. That is why these classics endure - to give us some understanding, and a look at those times and places. The story, itself, explains DeFoe's (Crusoe's) attitudes and behaviors... long-winded apologies are worthless and irritating interruptions!
