Publisher's Summary

In Gulliver's Travels, the narrator represents himself as a reliable reporter of the fantastic adventures he has just experienced. But how far can we rely on a narrator who has been impersonated by someone else? The work purports to be a travel book, and describes the shipwrecked Gulliver's encounters with the inhabitants of four extraordinary places: Lilliput, Brobdingnag, Laputa, and the country of the Houyhnhnms. A consumately skillful blend of fantasy and realism makes Gulliver's Travels by turns hilarious, frightening, and profound. This is one of literature's most disturbing satires on the human condition.

Critic Reviews

"[Swift] dictated for a time the political opinions of the English nation...and showed that wit, confederated with truth, has such force as authority was unable to resist." (Samuel Johnson)

horrible

I don't know if the style of writing from the 1800s or the reader's affected British accent was what drove me crazy. I quit listening after the first seven hours.
