Beschreibung

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.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

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.
