It is widely considered Swift's magnum opus and is his most celebrated work, as well as one of the indisputable classics of English literature. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Reviews

How could Swift write this??? Amazing


(5 stars)

Amazing this story. Thanks for the accurate and well recorded reading. But I had some trouble listening for although it is read clearly and with a very nice voice, I felt like the reader sometimes perhaps didn't really feel anything about the story herself. That comes across like a mechanical reading somehow. I couldn't concentrate anymore especially during the more complex parts. This is just my personal taste. Still thanks so much and five points fully deserving.

True Classic


(5 stars)

This book proved to me why it is a classic. The reading could have been better but I feel that is a matter of taste more than any measure of qaulity of this audio book. I tend to prefer dramatic readings by multiple readers playing the different parts.

once again Mrs Driver did a wonderful job. very interesting book as well. my only question is if the saying " a bunch of Yahoo's" or " don't act like a Yahoo" came from this book? I used to hear my grandpa use that expression a lot.

Flawless Reading


(5 stars)

The reading is perfect for this classic book, which probably goes over some people's heads because it not the cartoonish Gulliver they expect. It is subtle and profound, a brilliant satire, just exactly what the reader delivers. I've listened to the whole book twice and will listen again. It's that good!

Nice


(5 stars)

This was a good recording of a book that must have been a great example of satirical audacity at the time it was published.

Gulliver's Travels is great


(5 stars)

Really good,but bad reader:( it sounded like she was forced to read this book and did it unwillingly she was super slow at reading and her pausing was about 3 seconds but otherwise it's a really good book it may seem boring in the introduction but it just tells you about his life

A mirror you can't look away from!


(5 stars)

A cringe worthy but immensely enjoyable satire which made me chuckle at human imperfections. Kudos to the reader, had me hooked right from the start :)

wonderful story with a soothing narrator


(5 stars)

This story is magical, inspiring and read by a lovely calming voice. A new favourite for my partner and I.
