Listener Opinions

    " Read it when i was a little kid from our library that my parents gave away to a public school. I can still remember the sketches in between chapters and that what pushed me to finish the book but the story really is entertaining. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela Burneka | 2/2/2014

    " Not my cup of tea, but it was entertaining. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeffrey | 1/30/2014

    " Starts off very entertaining, then bogs down in social commentary that is pretty meaningless to a modern reader. There's a very good reason the movies all end with Gulliver's first travel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tim Moran | 1/30/2014

    " Much better and richer than I expected. There are 4 voyages, and the Lilliputian one that most are familiar with is the weakest, They get progressively better with the remarkably and disturbing encounter with the Hounyhms and the Yahoos making a terrific finale. Put the plot aside and just enjoy Gulliver who gradually descends into madness and incoherence with each voyage. And its really funny too, albeit a little heavy on the scatological humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Juliet Waldron | 1/26/2014

    " Ah, the 18th Century. It's a whole 'nother place, the source of much of the western civ mental set antique, mythical furniture. If you have the time to enter these great whorls of words, or want to learn more about how "they" thought, take a look. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kristie | 1/23/2014

    " I'll never care much for Gulliver, but I'm glad to know what a Yahoo is. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Melissa | 1/19/2014

    " I found his four stories rather dull and thought he was too wordy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Van Oosterum | 1/13/2014

    " The kids loved this one!!! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carmen | 1/10/2014

    " A brilliant satire of the society oh his time and not only. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melina Martin | 1/4/2014

    " Imaginative, and despite all it's protestations, entertaining. I favored the third chapter as the most relevant. By the fourth part it varied between too-direct criticism the complete ridiculousness. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pancho | 12/30/2013

    " I had a fun time delving into the life of Gulliver. It took some time for me to "Get it" but once I did I enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbierandall1 | 12/27/2013

    " Glad I finished the classic, but not the easiest book to get through! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Vonaire | 12/13/2013

    " The most boring thing I ever attempted to read. Terrible. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/8/2013

    " This was spot on. I think he especially gained satirical steam during the last third of the book. Or maybe he just got less subtle. Either way I was laughing aloud at times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Westonia1989 | 9/16/2013

    " The book that told me that people are ugly when looked at really close up. Eat your heart out brobdingnagians. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy Boyd | 8/26/2013

    " I love this book! Swift's satire is hilarious and eye-opening as well. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sheena Matylda | 10/7/2012

    " good read from when i was a little girl. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Allegra | 4/2/2012

    " Blaaaahhh. Not a good book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Joel | 1/6/2012

    " Simply dreadful - not only could I not finish it, I couldn't even make it through the first dozen pages or so. Maybe it would have been more comprehensible/funnier/less boring if I was born two hundred years ago living as a British aristo or something. But I doubt it. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 12/29/2011

    " The story started off great! But by the end, it's pretty obvious that he hates humanity.. It isn't a travel novel anymore by the end it is just a 24 chapter rant. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Neal Kerrigan | 12/26/2011

    " Too dryly British. It was ment for its own time period, but nowadays it's just hard to get through. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kevin | 7/22/2011

    " It was quite good - nearly got four stars. I just found that while the political commentary was fairly accurate, it was also rather obvious. Maybe writing has become more subtle in the last few centuries, which altered my expectations. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Morgan | 5/21/2011

    " I've decided that I really really do not enjoy satire. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrew | 5/20/2011

    " Does not survive the centuries, pompous and condescending, bigoted "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Casey Jane | 5/20/2011

    " Filled with his travels around the globe and his adventures. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Danielroffle | 5/20/2011

    " "Haha I am describing this FAR AWAY EXOTIC culture, whose follies are by no means meant to represent some of our OWN vices ho ho ho perish the thought" - fuck off, Jonathan Swift. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trevor | 5/20/2011

    " Pretty good, author should alot of creativity. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 5/18/2011

    " I read it in elementary school. I liked it but it is not one that stuck out to me. I may have to reread it at some point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deepti | 5/13/2011

    " I read this book finally, upto the last page, as a part of a very interesting course on 18th C literature, and I loved the insights into Swift's work the course gave me. Specially amusing was my professor's fascination with the 'scatological fixation' that Swift shows in this work. :D "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Deanna | 5/8/2011

    " I dont like this book!!!! It bored me to tears!!! Never again, I couldnt even finish "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donovan | 5/4/2011

    " It was interesting but it was kind of difficult to get through. It wasn't a challenging read but it had the tendency to get wordy and boring. The first two parts of the book are considerably more entertaining than the last two. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben | 4/26/2011

    " It is nice to have a writer who pretty much agrees with me on everything. Well, except the whole Jesus thing. But I can cut Swift some slack because he's so impressive in all the other places. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruthglowacki | 4/23/2011

    " Yeah, so I think I read this once before? (Or maybe just an abridged version?) "Travels" to set up political satire... yeah. Whatever. A few funny spots, though. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris E. | 4/20/2011

    " A weird but a good book! I have not read a book this good in a while. To make it better it was made in the 1700's! "
