Summary

Andrew Sachs reads Jonathan Swift's humorous and unforgettable tale of a strange man in some very strange lands. Gulliver had always wanted to see the world. But whenever he steps on board a ship, bad luck always seems near at hand. He is shipwrecked, abandoned, marooned and mutinied against - and each time lands in a strange and curious place.

First he discovers the kingdom of the small people of Lilliput, whose height make their petty quarrels seem ridiculous. Gulliver then encounters the giants of Brobdingnag, who are amazed by how tiny he is, and treat him like a pampered pet. But his smallness leads him into many dangers, and he longs to escape and make his way home. Will he ever see England again?

A real sea going adventure!

Excellent retelling of the classic story, that draws you in, like you are there. The narrator creates vivid pictures in your mind of where he is and what is happening. Easy to hear and understand. Suitable for all ages.

What a funny little book!

What a funny little book! I thought the book was humorous and a fun quick read. I was a little disappointed that it was so short and so quick. I would have enjoyed more in-depth adventures. I do understand that it is a tongue-in-cheek satire of what was going on in England at the time. It did help to refer to spark notes to get the whole underlying humor.
