    " surprisingly interesting and easy to read. swift's view on morality and society in general really makes you think twice about what's going on in the world, even today. i definitely recommend it! "

    " This book is mostly a didactic fable, with the pedagogical endgame being how to act in the presence of different cultures. If Alice in Wonderland sees a tiny door, what does she do? She shrinks to assimilate and comport to the culture. Gulliver just tramps around people big and small like he owns the whole joint. Good origin story though for Yahoo, but would like to see more about the eventual eclipsing by google. "

    " It's SO much more than what we saw on the television or read as children. A parody of human nature with characters such as Liliputians, Houyhnhnms and Yahoos. A great read! "
