Publisher's Summary

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.

18th century satirical science fiction for adults

A long way from the typical children's adaptations! More of a time capsule giving a series of views on European society as explained to all the strange characters in strange lands.

I wouldn't really call it a novel or flowing story, but well worth the listen. Nicely read and nicely produced.

The story can be extremely monotonous, but the reading is very well done. Would recommend this to anyone interested in the book, you can't do better. My favorite part of the book is the last quarter of it, so you have to get through some boring parts to reach the best ones.
