I tried to read Robinson Crusoe last night and I am astonished it's considered a classic. The first part is okay, setting up the titular character as a wastrel (but very lucky) plantation owner involved in a scheme to illegally procure slaves. The rest (at least as far as I could get) is considerably less interesting than actually being trapped on an island.
