Popular Stranded On An Island Books
Ten of the most vivid accounts of being marooned in literature
Islands have played a hugely important role in literature right from the start, both as locations and as metaphors, and sometimes even as characters. We've compiled a list of some of the greatest island books. It includes four Nobel Prize winners, and at least two works that spawned their own literary genres. Its central figure Odysseus or Ulysses is trying to get home, ten years after the Trojan war, and he visits a series of islands on his way. A welfare state, equality of the sexes, no private property, religious freedom: the island's society is, in many ways, a model one. Probably the most iconic of all island books.

Marshall Cohen is a privileged young businessman traveling out of the country to engage in 'sketchy' business dealings for his boss. When their small plane crashes, the two lone survivors are forced to depend on each other and in the process they learn to face their fears and to accept their differences.
