I enjoy most books i listen to unless it is a dramatization and it was not clearly labeled to distinguish it's self from and audio book
Any other popular novel from and english author from the same era
I enjoyed his take on politicians
I listen to my books generally while i am working so if it is less than twelve hours of audio I usually would have it done in one day
A great book for anyone. Younger audiences can enjoy the fantastic journey's while older audiences can appreciate the political satire.
Probably not....not because of performance but because it just wasn't my favorite story.
I don't have any ideas of changing anything in this book or performance.
Pierce was very good at changing his voice for different characters.
Nothing stood out in any part of the book to really make it memorable to me.
This was supposed to sync back and forth from the audible to the e book and it won't do it with my original kindle fire. This was a disappointment to me. I probably would not have read it anyway (I hadn't in years past) Just not my favorite story. The audio was better than my own reading in this case.
mother, podcaster, writer, designer, knitter, spinner... no necessarily in that order...
MUST READ CLASSIC
I particularly liked the way Gulliver spoke the truth--without "realizing" he was insulting his own world.
The end is wonderfully heartbreaking--as all great satires must b.
Listeneing to a different version on CraftLit and Just-the-Books. Everyone in our modern world should hear this book--and how little we've learned in 400 years...
Though by no means earth-shattering, this satirical fantasy is enjoyable for a contemporary public. Indeed, though many are lost to us, many references are still understandable and pertinent.
Parents should be advised however that this work is often unexpectedly scatological, in sync no doubt with early 18th century sensibilities regarding body functions (or lack thereof).
very nice narration... very very funny....has value for money....nice creation by the author...fun filled and entertaining....
I'll read anything good. I'm easy that way.
I've wondered whether or not the Daily Deals here on Audible were picked by random, and now I know a computer is definitely involved.
Todays wonderful deal at $3.95 is actually free if you buy the $.99 book on Kindle first.
Audible -- I can't respect your "big bonanza" Daily Deal if you're not paying attention to what's going on. Buyers beware!!!
I was drawn to this because of David Hyde Peirce's voice. He was the only good thing about this book. The initial part of the story was pretty cool. You would never see a movie or series actually based on the entire story. The author's narrative becomes soooooo boring. The story gets weirder and darker. Had I downloaded the entire book for free --- I still would not have rated it better than a ONE star.
Something narrated byTim Pigott-Smith
None. I hope David Hyde Pierce gives his royalties to a charity.
This is Swift's classic fictionalized acounting of 16 years of travel through his interpretation of the world according to the 1700s. While the first few adventures as a giant, as a tiny person, and life on a flying island were at times entertaining, I found much of the drivel in the second half dry and boring. I respect Pierce's work as an actor, but his narration worked too hard to bring Frankenstein back to life only to have him die again.
Why did I made myself endure til the end? Oh yeah... it's a classic.
