One thought on “The Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe

  1. Craig DiLouie

    Mashups are normally not my thing If I would not normally read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, neither would I want to read PRIDE AND PREJUDICE WITH ZOMBIES, however clever the concept The retelling of ROBINSON CRUSOE by Peter Clines, mixing Lovecraft and making Crusoe a werewolf, however, proved a nice exception If you liked the original, Clines adaptation is fresh, enjoyable retelling If reading for the first time, it is an entirely new, edgier way to read the classic.

    As a kid, I was absolutely obsessed with Robinson Crusoe and The Swiss Family Robinson I read each at least a dozen times, and wanted to get shipwrecked on a deserted island It all seemed terribly romantic and probably sparked my lifelong love of survival stories I m also a massive Lovecraft fan, an author I discovered a few years after my Robinson Swiss obsession but read just as many times Add in Peter Clines, who wrote one of my favorite comedy horrors 14, and what could go wrong Nothing, tha [...]

    Not exactly what I expected I was disappointed in it I didn t realize it was written in the form of a diary

    This book is enjoyable reading, but I m not sure who the target audience would be I read the Defoe s original Adventures of Robinson Crusoe just a few months before reading this book and loved it When reading this book I generally felt like I was just re reading Defoe s book again Sure, Clines who I think is a great author strips out some of the Christian material and inserts a werewolf, but the werewolf is completely insubstantial for the main plotline and is mostly absent If you aren t going t [...]

    The story of Robinson Crusoe is masterfully retold by Clines, with Crusoe presented as a lycanthrope who enjoys the seclusion of his island, which relieves him from the troubles of managing his beast once a month The religion of Cthulhu is strong on the island, and this mash up of a classic tale with the lore of werewolves and H.P Lovecraftian gods flows so smoothly, with the journals of Crusoe written in language that feels authentic to Defoe s period.

    I ve been on a Weird Al kick for the last couple of weeks due in part to finally seeing him live , and as I was listening to his catalog, I was reminded how I appreciated his parodies so much in the 80s and early 90s Back then, I still listened to popular music, and I was familiar with the videos that accompanied them, so I was able to catch all of the subtler jokes that played around with a particular lyric or scene During the concert, the inhaler joke from Inactive was lost on me because I di [...]

    What do you get when you take Daniel Defoe s classic work Robinson Crusoe and inject a measure of H.P Lovecraft, all the while making the title character a werewolf You get the Eerie Adventures of the Lycanthrope Robinson Crusoe, by Peter Clines I have to admit I was somewhat hesitant about picking this one up I m a HUGE fan of Peter Clines other books especially his zombies vs superheroes epic Ex Heroes and his modern classic horror novel 14 , but I haven t been too impressed by the recent stri [...]

    I really enjoyed this book I found the warewolf believable and liked how the concept was never used up The lovecraftian elements brought out the wonder and superstition of 16th century seafarers, which is all but lost in our day These parts also not being exaggerated, but woven in where it seemed natural.The language and form used in the book is kept somewhat archaic, as in the original, and adds to the feeling of authenticity The first half of the book may prove challenging to some readers, but [...]

    I m a big fan of Clines work, especially 14 and The Fold , but unfortunately I found Crusoe lacking, and clearly a book that was fun to write than to read Told in the style of the original a rather dry, diary like account of Crusoe s 27 years on the island , the tale isn t saved by the introduction of a few Lovecraftian elements, which evoke less horror than one would presume they would A dense read with very little dialogue, Crusoe fails to invest the reader with any sort of thrill or care of [...]

    Probably my least favorite Clines novel Not bad, but having just finished reading Defoe s Captain Singleton, the prose written in the style of that author kind of dragged This book did have a pair of interesting conceits Crusoe as a werewolf and his island under the influence of Cthulhu , but it didn t grab me the way 14 The Fold and his Ex Heroes novels did.

  11. Deborah

    An intriguing and entertaining take on a classic tale Peter Clines stays true to the tone of the original and seamlessly weaves the supernatural elements into the tale I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to fans of classic literature as well as horror enthusiasts.
