Okay, Robinson Crusoe the story is straight up great, and worth reading. But (and this was a surprise to me, there were two sequels written to the original book).
This kindle (ASIN #B0084BJ6WK) contains both titles, and a Preface, even tho that is not indicated by the title.
The original book is usually just called "Robinson Crusoe", but sometimes is called "The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe" (which is a shortening of the insanely much longer original title "The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates" - see wiki, there's a picture of the first edition.
The first sequel is usually called "The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe", but was originally called "The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe".
Anyway, this edition (ASIN #B0084BJ6WK) contains both books, and an Introduction, or Preface, by someone who signs it "G.D.", but I don't know who that person is. It also has subtle edits and changes. I tracked this kindle along with another kindle, and an audiobook, and a hardcover copy. They were all slightly different. But one big noticeable difference was in accounting of the number in an army at one point in the first book - turns out Defoe himself screwed that up and got it all muddled, and tried (but failed) to fix it via edits for later editions. He just muddled it more by his edits, which is pretty funny. Some of the number are counted both as dead, and as alive, and some just disappear, as tho they'd never been there at all, except they were, because he didn't edit them out ;-).
A more interesting difference was the elimination of an internal debate he had with himself near the very end of the book, regarding whether or not he could live fully embracing the Roman Catholic religion, with all that means with regard to the contemporary-to-the-story Spanish Inquisition.
All of the editions I read/tracked had different chapter breaks, as well as word choices and substitutions. Makes me wonder what was original! I certainly don't know. I suspect there are as many variations as there are editions.
In any event, all that doesn't detract from the story. It's highly readable, and very enjoyable. The first book more so than the sequel. I recommend everyone should read it, it's a fun read!
