A literal desert island or a metaphorical one?
i.e. books about sun, sea and sand or books about people stranded/marooned/coping with a new environment?
Book about people stranded and surviving... Thanks.

If you haven't read the classics then Jules Verne's The Mysterious Island is one of his better novels.

John Wyndham's end of the world novels may also fit the bill. The Kraken Wakes, Day of the Triffids etc.

For a larger scale look at how society copes with an apocalypse then World War Z by Max Brooks is a good read.

Speaking of classic apocalypses, perhaps Robert Matherston's I am Legend.

If exile is acceptable then On Basilisk Station is good fun.

Stephen Baxter's Space also ends up with characters out of place and many of his novels in the Xelee Sequence and Time Odyssey also involve people and societies thrust from their usual surroundings. He is a more serious writer though, so not for everyone.
