Inhaltsangabe

Lemuel Gulliver, a slightly staid ship’s doctor, relates the tales of his astonishing travels. He encounters the tiny, warring Lilliputians; the giant, sceptical Brobdingnagians; the ludicrously intellectual Laputans; and the idealistic - if rather stolid - Houyhnhnms and their bestial servants, the Yahoos. An immediate best seller when it was first published in 1726, Gulliver’s Travels has remained a favourite ever since. It was an attack on the politics and society of Swift’s day, but it is also a polemical, inventive, surreal, vitriolic, and wonderfully imaginative masterpiece, whose powerful satire continues to strike home.

Wunderbar gelesen

Jasper Britton hat eine ganz wundervolle, leidenschaftliche und doch klare und deutliche Art vorzulesen - so, wie er die Fantasiewörter ausspricht, macht es richtig Spaß zuzuhören!

Much more than Liliput

The author goes on 4 adventures, Liliput just being one of them. The best two, however, are the last ones. A truly biting criticism of mankind and society still applicable today. No wonder he wasn't well regarded by the political class at the time. A pity the story is always reduced to his first adventure in Liliput. The others are certainly nothing that Disney could touch. Superbly read. Delightful language, too.
