(P)1986 Jimcin Recordings
There are dozens of readings of Gulliver's Travels. This is my favorite so far, just because the reader has an interesting voice, a cross between Christopher Walken and the dad from Punky Brewster. He has funny pronunciations for a few things like "Houyhnhnm" and even such words as "treatise," but the slightly raspy inflection works well for a satire as savagely funny as this one. Anyway, Swift really shouldn't be read by a polished Brit, since he didn't particularly like them. This works better for me. My only complaint is the title page, which misspells Swift!
