Published Reviews

"In this new adaptation, Defoe's themes are infiltrated by Helsinger's, so that this Crusoe is a Crusoe for the 21st century -- family-friendly, yes, but exhilarating all the while."

Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel

"A real tour de force...a surprisingly exciting tale of survival."

Michael W. Freeman, The Lakeland Ledger (Orlando)
