Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), officially Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World, is a novel by Jonathan Swift that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travelers' tales" literary sub-genre. 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)

How could Swift write this??? Amazing

(5 Sterne)

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 Sterne)

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.

not your childhood version of gulliver

(4 Sterne)

first, i appreciate the reader - having a whole book by a single reader is a wonderful thing. BUT she didnt do that good of a job. yes, i understand the "dead pan serious" delivery fits with the story teller being serious about his book on travel, but it could have been done better. this is not the Gulliver's travels you grew up on, yes in the first adventure he is a giant among tiny men - but this book goes through MANY adventures. CAUTION, the writer makes many notes on urination, defecation, and unclothed portions of bodies. while my 12 year old nephew may find these hilarious, some people/parents may want to avoid the story because of it. overall a captivating adventure book with a deep philosophical look at human behavor! as a note, i listened to this during 2016 elections in the US - and DIED laughing when a commentator of the presidential debates said "it just looks like two yahoo's in debate".

Good reader, terrible book

(3 Sterne)

Despite its satire of European customs in general and particularly politics, science, women, etc. this book is fairly awful. The three stars I've given this are solely for the reader. The reader isn't perfect, e.g. mispronounces some words, fairly slow, but she reads clearly and distinctly making it very easy to listen to this book... When I wasn't losing my temper with the content! Swift seems to have had absolutely nothing bad to say about classes or slavery. In every section Gulliver is a submissive prisoner of some kind. In what appears to be Swift's ideal community the Houyhnhnm kick him out because he looks like a race that they think of as brutes despite his differences in every way but appearance. Some ideal, benevolent, reasoning community they are! The last section just devolves into vitriol against Europeans and self loathing rather than satire.

thanks for reading! extraordinarily pleasant voice, nicely and calmly read, quite enjoyable. unfortunately ear hearting and possibly equipment damaging loud Pop sounds are present in some chapters, on cheap speakers/phones or with a high pass filter this might not be trouble. listening via smartphone with quality earphones that can produce low frequencies quite powerfull it is. also there is permanent unpleasant audible yet not distracting noise in the recording. the mouse klicking in the backgound with the slight pauses for page changing though I would call a funny feature :)

Gulliver's Travels is great

(5 Sterne)

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

good book, read well

(4 Sterne)

I decided to listen to this book because it is often considered a classic and referred to in other books. I can't say that it is my favorite, but I'm glad I listened to it. the reader does an outstanding job reading the book in the tone the author would have likely used.
