Concrete Island – J.G. Ballard – 1974

Too often, many readers pan this book as modern day Robinson Crusoe. Nothing could be further from the truth. The story’s protagonist, an architect named Robert Maitland, is stranded under a highway interchange which he refers to as a “concrete island.” The only similarity between this novel and Robinson Crusoe is the fact that both central characters are stranded. Their reactions to both situations are completely opposite. It’s a good book if you can avoid a comparison and read it for what it is; a story that proves misery doesn’t always love company.
