Gulliver's Travels, Hardback
3.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


At once satiric and magical, rich in philosophy and astonishing adventure, "Gulliver's Travels" transports children into worlds unknown.

The entire voyage is seen through the eyes of Lemuel Gulliver, a ship's surgeon whose amazing account begins with a shipwreck on the high seas and continues as he encounters a race of miniature people known as Lilliputians; giant Brobdingnagians; the foolish Laputians; the very humanoid Yahoos; and finally, the gentle and wise horse-like Houhynhyms - beings far superior to Man.

Will Gulliver ever make it home again?

Such a witty, clever, fun critique of society. Like a true traveler, he pushes the limits of what one is naturally inclined to believe is possible or normal. I would read this book again and again.

Review by

I thought this was an okay book. I understand what Swift was trying to accomplish with his 4 different worlds--the lessons he was trying to teach--but I wasn't that engaged with the stories. There were some interesting bits of writing, but overall, just one of those classics I felt I needed to read to be a well-rounded person. Yes, I am much rounder now but it has nothing to do with this book.
