Gulliver's Travels is renowned as a playful and comic children's classic. The book itself, rather than the bowdlerized versions that have been derived from it, is a savage, rude and brilliant satire, timeless in its appeal and unerringly accurate. The images of Gulliver among the miniature Lilliputians and the giants of Brobdingnag, the crazy scientists, and the rational horses create a series of novel delights and challenging insights.

    " Talk about a political satire. Swift managed to cover just about every political group in the various locations of Gulliver's shipwrecks. I was familiar with the giants and miniature people, but the flying island and horses with human reason were very interesting. Who knew there were pirates interested only in math! Interesting book. I do believe that if Lemuel Gulliver had enjoyed his time at home with his wife and family, he would have been less prone to go on one more voyage, although his adventures made for good stories. Interesting quote: "Nature is easily satisfied." This was another "classic" I was familiar with but had never read. "

    " It was good, but after five months of trying to finish it, I gave up. Just didn't pique my interest. "

    " The ideas of this book were very creative and interesting to try to visualize. However, I found the Houyhnhnms segment to be quite exasperating. I understood the message and meanings, but I find problems with the way Gulliver esteems the Houyhnhnms, who I do not find to be a better alternative to humanity. I guess, maybe I'm picky and critical because I read this book for a class. "
