What the community says about Gulliver's Travels

  • Phillip Roberts
    Written on April 28, 2018
    "What can be said about Jonathan Swift's classic novel, Gulliver's Travels, that hasn't been said a thousand times before? It's been discussed to great lengths by academics, appeared on many "greatest novels of all time" lists (including a recent one by The Guardian), and had countless adaptations to film. And yet, nearly 300 years after its original publication, Gulliver's Travels is still one of essential novels of the English language, one that everyone should read at some point in their lives. I won't spoil what happens, in case you're one of the very few people in the world who isn't familiar with how the story goes; and if you are one of those lucky people, please do buy it and read it today."

    "Awesome book. I love supernatural and fantasy books, so this is great. The part where he can look over a city as a God is great."

    "A classic of any genre. This book is beloved by generations of readers. It has inspired so many similar stories and is a fantastic nautical adventure."

    "This one is something that I would rate as 2 out of 5 stars. The narration was not perfectly crafted though the intention is to put up a fun travel adventure. "

    "This classic work of satire is one of many great books mentioned in Psycho Pass. Whilst I enjoyed its comedy and adventure as a child, as an adult, the satirical commentary on society, (even that of 300 years ago) makes reading it a pleasure. Having said that, for me, it pales when compared to other books in the list. "

    "I first heard of Gulliver's Travels when it was mentioned in Psycho Pass. I picked it up to give it a read and was pleasantly surprised. It wasn't at all what I was thinking it would be. Definitely worth a read if you are into fantasy fiction."

    "An instant classic. I've read this book numerous times. In its descriptions of the natives of these lands is really interesting. Second, as a political satirist Jonathan Swift was acutely poking fun of his countrymen and occasionally I could even discern who he would be making the jest of. "

    "Gulliver's Travels is a great novel that everyone should read. This book is a great narrative of a literary classic."

    "There are only a handful of novels worth a damn with a nautical theme and this trash certainly isn't one of them. May I suggest 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea or The Hunt For Red October? Both of them are award winning novels that blow Gulliver's travels figuratively(and literally) out of the water!"

    "The description of this one is long but it conveys everything you would want to know. Not too big of a fan of this one, it gives too much away."

    "I recently bought this classic, "Gulliver's Travels", to give it as a gift to my niece, and she's been really happy to receive this book. It doesn't need any presentation, and almost 300 years after having been written, it's still fresh and entertaining! "

    "Is there anybody who doesn't know Gulliver's Travels? This book by Jonathan Swift was a staple in my childhood. I am proud to say that I just bought a copy for my nephew. He is aware of the story of Gulliver, but this will be the first time actually reading it. When I heard that he asked his dad if they had a copy at home I immediately had one delivered. The story is timeless and always a fantastic treat."

    "This was a great story. It's no wonder that there have been many TV/movie adaptations of this. It's just really easy to read and follow along with. "

    "If you haven't read Gulliver's Travels you really should get out more. With so many takes on this book, this edition is one of the classics."

    "My nephew collects illustrated classic novels, so I gave him this for his birthday, and it's become one of the most treasured volumes in his collection. The illustrations are gorgeous, the construction is solid, and the story has stood the test of time."

    "Gulliver's travels is an adventure story by Jonathan Swift that was written originally and 1726. It's a wonderful book for college freshman because it's both interesting to read and has elements of satire and political humor. And it can be approached in a simple fashion or with more layers."
