Gulliver's Travels

472 ratings, 59 reviews

To this day, the classic Gulliver's Travels places Jonathan Swift as the master of both parody and satire. Fifteen years in the making, his book was published anonymously due to fear of prosecution. And rightfully so, as it basically made fun of everyone: the State, the Church, Big Science and the Aristocracy. It was an immediate smash hit. If Swift were alive today he'd probably be writing for Southpark.

This tale in four parts depicts shipwrecked castaway Lemuel Gulliver, who encounters the diminutive Lilliputians, the giants of Brobdingnag, the impractical scientists of Laputa, the philosophical horselike Houyhnhnms, and the base humaneseque Yahoos. Besides generating a few
unwieldy SAT words (Lilliputian, Brogdingnagian), Gulliver's Travels delves fantastically into the nature of man: exploring good vs. evil, optimism vs. misanthropy, and whether human corruption is innate or learned over time.

I enjoyed the 1st two travel experiences the best. The floating island , I could not relate to & the last experience I simply replaced that culture with a supposedly advanced culture. I give the book a B- rating.

One of my favorite works of satire, with much to say that is still relevant to the world in which we live. There is so much more to this book than the adventures in Lilliput... Readers who allow themselves the pleasure of reading this tale will be richly rewarded by the final chapters, which offer an honest look at the strangeness of being human.

This was my first re-read in 50 years. The fist time, it was highly entertaining. This time I realized the depth and wisdom of the author as he introduced the foibles, intrigue, and stupidities of governments--while still being entertained.
