reading it as an adult was an eye opener
Before I ever started school, my father read Gulliver's Travels to me (the first two voyages and in German). This time it was a class assignment at the Life Long Learning Society of CNU. Reading the unabridged version in its original language made me see the the book in a totally different light. This time I recognized the satire imbedded in the stories and I was amazed how little has changed in politics and amongst the powerful.
I highly recommend the book even when the 18th century English is a bit difficult to read
