5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best reads ever!, 2 Jan 2014
Everyone should read Gullivers Travels. Bought for my daughter to read. If your only experience of Gullivers Travels is the popular image of his visit to Lilliput ....or even worse the Jack Black film (aaaargh!!) ....then you must read this intelligent and thoroughly entertaining book. Cannot recommend enough. You will not be disappointed! And if you thought a yahoo was a search engine you should definitely get reading!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gulliver's home truths, valid then and valid now., 18 Aug 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Gulliver's Travels is the author Jonathern Smith having fun at the early scientists with their mixture of profound intent and often silly conclusions. His parody of the comparison of the genteel and civilised horses of one story with the crass, coarse and crude behaviour of humans is his most significant satire. Almost all of what he implies about the stupidity of contemporary society and today carries a heavenly ironic message and one well with reading. This full edition bears little relationship to the children's version which in most cases trivialises The message Dean Swift coveyed so beautifully and with a light touch in the original text. Not to be missed.
