Gulliver's Travels Jonathan Swift Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

The masterwork from writer-satirist Jonathan Swift, Gulliver’s Travels tells the story of wandering adventurer Lemuel Gulliver and the fantastical countries he visits on his journey around the globe. From Lilliput (a town with a six-inch tall population) to Brobdingnag (full of giants) and from the flying land of Laputa to Houyhnhnm, the country run by super-intelligent horses, Swift pokes fun at the universal flaws of human society. A mixture of scathing social criticism and wild imagination, Gulliver’s Travels has remained a tremendously popular book for nearly three centuries.

  • Cost

    By Horses & hotdogs
    How much is the book it won't show me? I want to get it but don't know the cost so.. Can someone please tell me?!
  • Awesome!

    By Hoopdoodles
    I loved this book, it was so amazing, it was sad when he left the places though, I feel like there could've been a little bit more though. My favorite was the Houyhnhnms! Yahoos!
  • Political satire with interesting ideas.

    By Barr kids
    Not very realistic and some what forced at times. Not very high opinions of women, lawyers, politicians, professors, etc.
  • Nice, but...

    By AreWeHuman?
    Where are parts three and four? But, it does have good footnotes and nice pictures.
  • Poorly Typeset

    By bitpuddle
    Too many typesetting and pagination errors in this edition. It looks to be a cheaply-made edition to show the reader an advertisement. Get one from an established publisher.
  • Life saver

    By rugbygirl3460
    I had to read this book for class but didn't want to bring the huge book (the story was in a collection where the book was bulky) everywhere I went. I found this, and read it everywhere without having to carry a ten pound book! This book is awesome and funny also it was free!!! So best thing ever!

    By The geeko
    This was one of the best books of satire I have ever read!
  • Wonderful!

    By Cintim
    I've avoided the classics for years, assuming they would be boring and written in such an old style that they would be difficult to understand. Was I ever wrong! This was a great read! I enjoyed the tongue-in-cheek humor that poked fun at our culture. I recommend this book!
  • Ok
