    Let s face it Jonathan Swift was a snarky, snarky bitch Gulliver s Travels is like a giant pimp slap across the human race face and I am so glad I finally read this in a non school, non structured environment because I had a whole lot fun with it this time around Swift s wit, insight and delivery are often, though not always, remarkable and he crams well thought out jabs and toe steppings in this slim 250 page

    Okay, I didn t finish this sucker It was poor I was kind of shocked I was thinking why does no one point out that this is a giant rip off of Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Honey I Blew Up the Kid It s painfully obvious I don t see why this Danial Defoe mope has not had his ass sued, maybe he avoided that by writing his ripoff in a long ass frankly boring olde worlde style so that all the lawyers would fall asleep before the

    And he gave it for his opinion, that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together I don t think there will ever be a time when Gulliver s Travels doesn t feel like a perfect mirror of humankind I remember the first time I read it, as a child I

    This was my favorite required reading in high school well, actually, probably tied with Animal Farm It was a very pleasant and unexpected surprise The reference points I had were cartoon retellings of this from my youth I only really had an image of Gulliver vs the Lilliputians and that was only the most basic giant in a land full of very small people storylines well, they were trying to entertain children, so it doesn t have to get much complex than

    Los viajes de Gulliver es del tipo de libros que podr an agruparse con otros relatos de viajes para ser le dos en cadena, puesto que las experiencias que se narran en ellos en general son afines entre s.Por la naturaleza de lo que sucede en l, se pueden establecer relaciones entre ste libro y Robinson Crusoe , de Daniel Defoe, a partir de las experiencias de Lemuel Gulliver como n ufrago en varias ocasiones, o La isla del tesoro de Robert Louis Stevenson e inc

    Jonathan Swift 1667 1745 writes towards the end of his book an author perfectly blameless, against whom the tribe of answerers, considerers, observers, reflecters, detecters, remarkers, will never be able to find matter for exercising their talents.
