Description

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

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.

Excellent

The story can be extremely monotonous, but the reading is very well done. Would recommend this to anyone interested in the book, you can't do better. My favorite part of the book is the last quarter of it, so you have to get through some boring parts to reach the best ones.

Wunderbar gelesen

Jasper Britton hat eine ganz wundervolle, leidenschaftliche und doch klare und deutliche Art vorzulesen - so, wie er die Fantasiewörter ausspricht, macht es richtig Spaß zuzuhören!

Much more than Liliput

The author goes on 4 adventures, Liliput just being one of them. The best two, however, are the last ones. A truly biting criticism of mankind and society still applicable today. No wonder he wasn't well regarded by the political class at the time. A pity the story is always reduced to his first adventure in Liliput. The others are certainly nothing that Disney could touch. Superbly read. Delightful language, too.
