Robinson Crusoe is an English novel. It belongs to the genre of adventure novel. Written by Daniel Defoe and published in 1719. His publisher is W. Taylo. The story is inspired of the life of Alexander Selkirk. This novel is the first adventure novel written in English. When it was published, it was a huge success. Jean-Jacques Rousseau considers it as an educational novel. Shipwreck stories are as beautiful as literature because the eldest is Ulysses and the Odyssey (8th century BC).Today, it is considered as a classic novel in literature. The best known translation of Robinson Crusoe (by D. Defoe) in French is that written by Petrus Borel (poet and romantic frenetic writer) in the nineteenth century. A new version was released in 2011, translation of Françoise Du Sorbier. This novel has been adapted to cinema and television a lot of times. It is one written by Michel Fournier with Friday or the limbo of the Pacific. Since it releases, Defoe’s has not stopped creating new variations on the theme, or robinsonnades. It has become a myth. Robinson became a common name.
This novel is written in the first person singular. Robinson Crusoe is an adventurer in the soul. In the story that Robinson Crusoe tells in 1651, he led in England against the will of his parents who wanted him to be a lawyer. Robinson Crusoe navigates on the Pacific on the side of South America. His ship has suffered a storm and is stranded a stone’s throw from an island. He is the only survivor (with a dog). He joins the island and discovers that it is deserted. Robinson recovers a lot of equipment on the boat (like a rifle) and settles on the island and lives more than thirty years but after twenty five years he finds an Indian and names him Friday. Robinson tries to reproduce the way of life of the society where he is born, that is to say that he begins to practice agriculture and breeding while he could live by hunting and gathering. With his animals, he managed to recreate a micro society because he considers himself the king in the middle of his subjects. We understand that everything he does is a way of fighting loneliness and clinging to the life he led.
Robinson Crusoe’s story pleased me. I loved reading his adventures and how he was going to evolve. Last year, I studied four rewriting of Robinson Crusoe. It was very interesting to see the variants of this myth. I usually do not like to read adventure novels but here it did not bother me.
Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character invented by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (British writer and doctor, who owes his fame to his novels and short stories featuring detective Sherlock Holmes considered as a major innovation of the detective novel) in the detective story A study in Scarlet in 1887. The novel tells an investigation led by the famous Sherlock Holmes. There were four adventures of Sherlock Holmes. The first one a study in Scarlet published in 1887, then The sign of four published in 1890, and The hound of the Baskerville published in 1902 finally The valley of fear published in 1915. There is a lot of film about Sherlock Holmes like the adventures of Sherlock Holmes, the return of Sherlock holmes. In total, there are eight films with Sherlock Holmes. There are also five series (Elementary, Sherlock, etc.). Originally, Conan Doyle planned to call his detective Sherrinford Holmes.
Sherlock Holmes lives in 221B Baker Street in London. He is a consulting detective. His enemies are Professor Moriarty and Colonel Sebastian Moran. He was born in 1854.
I find quite difficult to summarize Sherlock Holmes. Dr. Watson and he solves all kinds of puzzles. They will undergo a lot of events very intriguing. Sherlock Holmes is a strange person seen from others. He is in his own world and he is very intelligent. However, he has very little knowledge in areas of knowledge that he considers unnecessary to his work. Each book tells an adventure and the evolution of the characters. We attach or just detach characters.
At first I was rethinking about reading Sherlock Holmes. Phis as the pages, I liked and I always wanted to know more. The character I hated as the story unfolds is Dr. Watson’s wife. I find her haughty and not sincere. On the other hand, Mrs. Hudson is really adorable and good will. She always wants to please. There is a rebound that has marked me, this is the moment when Sherlock Holmes commits suicide. But we must read really carefully to find out what really happened about his suicide.
In the stories of Sherlock Holmes, there is a lot of suspense and « fear ». I also watched the Sherlock Holmes series on Netflix. I think the series is even more intriguing than the books. Sherlock Holmes is and will remain popular.
Today I’m going to introduce you to Carrie by Stephen King. It was written in 1974 and it was adapted to four movies also known as Carrie. I’ve read the book and seen the version from 1976 and 2013. Carrie is an horror novel.
The story is about a girl called Carrie White. Carrie White is a sixteen-years-old girl bullied by her classmates and manhandled by her mother who has some curious obsession for paranormal activities.
One day, Carrie finds out she has the power of telekinesis.
This book is fantastic, even if we don’t have that much of suspense, this is still pleasant to read this book. The character of Carrie kindles compassion, because she is in pain and we witness how being a teenager is difficult to her.
I think everybody need to read a Stephen King’s book, because all his books are amazing, they are all best sellers and they are all part of the pop culture.
I hope you will read it.

They still really worry about the health of Carter ! Warning spoiler ! At the end it stays just one dream on the list but Carter can’t realize it because people say to him he is too old and too weak to do that : climb Everest ! So Carter die and had never realize his dream alive, Edward die few month later. In fact it’s the end which have really touch me : at the end we see a climber who climb the Everest and when he arrive on the top he put a funeral urn next to an other and we understand that it’s the ash of the two men !
This end is very important because it’s like it says : « Never give up, all your dreams can be realize and if it’s not in this life it will be in an other ! » . it’s really an hopeful message and Carter is a model for everyone for his tenacity. This film helps everybody to remember that life is, unfortunatly, unfair and can be stop sudently so every moment is the best moment to realize our dream !
