Defoe's Journal of the Plague Year is an extraordinary account of the devastation and human suffering inflicted on the city of London by the Great Plague of 1665. Purporting to be an eye-witness, Defoe's fictional narrator recounts in vivid detail the rising death toll and the transformation of the city as its citizens flee and those who remain live in fear and despair. Above all it is the stories of appalling human suffering and grief that give Defoe's extraordinary fiction its compelling historical veracity. The lively Introduction relates the Journal to Defoe's best-known work, Robinson Crusoe, and draws on recent research into the publishing environment of the first edition.

This book was written in 1719 and it was inspired by a true story of a man (Alexander Selkirk) who was rescued after having spent 3 years on a Pacific Island in 1709. The book is written in the first person as a diary of the life of Robinson Crusoe. The language and phrasing can be a little odd at times because it is a very old book but I do not think it is too difficult to understand. It was the fist "shipwreck and rescue" type of book and many others were written later on the same theme.
