Version abrégée. Inspiré de Defoe, Michel Tournier exploite l'idée de Robinson, personnage civilisé, maître qui montre et ordonne. Mais, avec l'explosion de la grotte, synonyme d'épanouissement et de révolte, le lecteur assiste à la découverte et à l'éclosion de Vendredi. L'étude des personnages, leurs comportements, leurs agissements décrivent avec finesse tout un processus de relations humaines et ses revirements. L'auteur dénonce clairement l'exploitation de l'homme. Un texte riche qui dépasse souvent, dans ses allusions, l'entendement des jeunes auxquels il est destiné. Photographies tirées du film
