During the book Gulliver stumbles upon 4 majorly different civilizations, with each having a specific theme that sets them apart from the world we know. The minuscule Lilliputians, the gargantuan Brobdingnagians, the impractical Laputians, and the noble Houyhnhnms. First, Gulliver is shipwrecked onto the shores of Lilliput, and finds himself tied down by hundreds of tiny ropes.

The best way to describe Swift's book would be as a fake travel narrative

view Kindle eBook view Audible audiobook. The best way to describe Swift's book would be as a fake travel narrative. Swift, in other words, was playing with genre conventions the way postmodernists would, some 200 years later. Gulliver's Travels can be filed-with some alterations-under Children's Literature because it is an adventure story, and because of its unforgettable images.

Truthcliff
Gulliver's Travels has some amusing and even a few insightful bits, but Swift was no Voltaire. A satire not so much on some particular human follies as on man as such, this book is basically a monument to misanthropy---as is made painfully clear in the heavy-handed fourth part. Not that satire has to be subtle, but it should at least be accurate, at most an exaggeration of the truth rather than a projection of one's own bitter prejudices. Swift's portrayal of human society, even as imperfect as it was (and even more so in his time than now), is at best one-sided. It ends with the narrator repulsed by the smell of his wife, and disgusted with himself for ever having coupled with her and brought children into the world. If you can sympathize with that sentiment, then you might find Swift's satire to be penetrating and clever. If, on the other hand, you see any value in human life and hold it to be more important than the vice and suffering that necessarily characterize some part of it, then you might be better off reading something else.

I gave this to someone that lists this as one of his favorite books. I had heard this version previously and preferred it to David Hyde Pierce's. My friend concurred and thoroughly enjoyed it. Reasonable cost.
