Publisher's Summary

Lemuel Gulliver, a slightly staid ship’s doctor, relates the tales of his astonishing travels. He encounters the tiny, warring Lilliputians; the giant, sceptical Brobdingnagians; the ludicrously intellectual Laputans; and the idealistic – if rather stolid – Houyhnhnms and their bestial servants, the Yahoos. An immediate best-seller when it was first published in 1726, Gulliver’s Travels has remained a favourite ever since. It was an attack on the politics and society of Swift’s day, but it is also a polemical, inventive, surreal, vitriolic and wonderfully imaginative masterpiece, whose powerful satire continues to strike home.

18th century satirical science fiction for adults

A long way from the typical children's adaptations! More of a time capsule giving a series of views on European society as explained to all the strange characters in strange lands.

I wouldn't really call it a novel or flowing story, but well worth the listen. Nicely read and nicely produced.

Much Deeper and Thought Provoking Than I Expected

I don't need to tell you that this book is classic. I did not expect the stories of Gulliver's adventures to be so thought provoking. Colonialism, politics, legal systems, and so on. What on first blush sound like "fairy tales" turn out to be perfect devices for thinking about some of the most important questions that humankind faced in 1700 and continue to wrestle with today.

The narrator does an excellent job. Very very clear. Delivers the entire book with just the right tone. A few of his accents are a little weird (Portuguese sounds German at one point), but it really makes no difference and is short-lived.

I highly recommend. I am very glad I decided to listen to this.

Not as good as I thought it would be

Where does Gulliver's Travels rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

For many years I have always wanted to read this book. However having now listened to it I can say I found it actually rather boring in a lot of places and found myself not really listening to it all. Well performed but the story was just not engaging.

Would you recommend Gulliver's Travels to your friends? Why or why not?

No
It was a rather tedious book

A TRUE CLASSIC

I loved the delivery and I loved the story too. My one criticism would be that Swift tends to labour his point somewhat in places. This is the reason for 4 stars instead of 5 but his clwvwr satire makes it atill worth the read.
