    Semi-Entertaining, but a Challenge

    Gulliver's Travels was an interesting and mildly humorous story, but I can definitely see why people just read the little kid's collection version and call it good. It was a pretty long story and well, when reading it, I was just waiting for it to end - that or for the paragraphs to be less repetitive and drawn out. The repetition often made me lost and very confused as to what was happening. Most of the time, I had to go back and read the chapter a few times over to figure out what the heck was going on or what on earth the writer was trying to tell you. Some parts of the story were just plain silly and others, well, a bit crude and, in my opinion, unnecessary. Despite the fact the book was difficult to read, I did enjoy the general idea of the whole book, the whole traveling and strange new lands thing. The beginning of the story was somewhat engaging, but shortly afterward, the book really does just lose you. The ending was all right and it does give you something to think about. Overall, I would not really recommend this book to anyone I personally know right now, I wasn't very fond of it. Even though my English teacher will probably smite me for saying this, I honestly would just say read the little kid's collection version or google a summary about it rather than stumble through the entire book as I did. It's a long and difficult read and I'm still not sure the struggle was worth it. So, Gulliver's Travels, not a great book in my opinion, but not necessarily a bad one either, even though many people, well, as far as I can see have given it super positive reviews, a 14 year old kid nowadays just isn't going to like the wording or much about it and it is really hard, well, at least for me to really get a good theme from the book.
