Robinson Crusoe has many symbols. For one, Poll. Poll is a parrot trained and tamed to act as a companion of Crusoe's on his long and lonely journey of survival. Later, Poll is even taught to be able to speak with Crusoe as he has to spend many months without help from any collegues of beasts that may live in the mysterious island.
Robinson Crusoe must be able to adapt to the environment that surround him. So one his quest of survival, he must be able to live safely. Crusoe, being on a travelling English ship found Flintlock rifles and dry powder. These items will come useful when hunting, scavenging and defending his property from beasts and savages that roam the island.
Of course the sea is a main part of the book. On an uninhabitited island surrounded with seas he must be able to read, swim and sail across the sea. Crusoe is a merchant, traveler and mariner. He has spent years travelling the seas and continues to on his journey.

I recommend this interesting book to readers who enjoy action, adventure and survival, readers Hatchet or Tom's Sawyer may enjoy this book as it is filled with adventure and action and survival all in a well-known classic novel. This is just exactly why I would recommend this book to adventure/action/survival book readers.
