Overview

Gulliver's Travels is renowned as a playful and comic children's classic. The book itself, rather than the bowdlerized versions that have been derived from it, is a savage, rude and brilliant satire, timeless in its appeal and unerringly accurate. The images of Gulliver among the miniature Lilliputians and the giants of Brobdingnag, the crazy scientists, and the rational horses create a series of novel delights and challenging insights.

Much better than I expected

What a great story. When you remove the fairy tale element and actually listen to the political and ethical issues raised in the commentary, it really hits home. In addition, apart from the dodgy music, the narrator was excellent. A great book and well worth the time.

This was as excellent as it was when I read it in fourth grade. The narrator did a great job as well.
