"Neither are any wars so furious and bloody, or of so long a continuance, as those occasioned by difference in opinion, especially if it be in things indifferent." —Gulliver's Travels

Shipwrecked and cast adrift, English surgeon Lemuel Gulliver wakes to find himself on Lilliput, an island inhabited by little people, whose height makes their quarrels over fashion and fame seem ridiculous. His subsequent encounters—with the crude giants of Brobdingnag, the philosophical Houyhnhnms, and the brutish Yahoos—give him new, bitter insights into human behavior. Jonathan Swift's satire views mankind in a distorted hall of mirrors as a diminished, magnified, and finally bestial species, presenting us with an uncompromising reflection of ourselves. Gulliver's Travels is a fascinating blend of travelogue, realizm, symbolism, and fantastic voyage—all with a serious philosophical intent.

FYI, this free Google download is only Volume 2 of 2. Even though it looks like you will be getting the full book, this ebook is only the second half.

Too many scanning and OCR errors to read -- avoid the frustration

This version was not scanned well and put nicely into a digital format. Try looking for another version of this tale.

I couldnt tell where the table of contents ended and the actual book began. Perhaps it only looks like this on my original nook?

Can't change font size on iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4. Disappointed. Will have to read on laptop.

Part I and II were quick reads filled with great fantasy which most of us see as THE Gulliver's Travels. Part III was a little boring and hard to get through and Part IV was a perfect combination of fantasy and Swift using great symbolism to strongly express his views.

Guliver's Travels is an exiting book as John Swift brings you in to the lives of: little peole, giants,and brings you into worlds of imortality, a floating island, a world were horses have peple as pets, and much more.

This book is simply the worst of all copies. First of all it makes no sense. Second most of it is like being washed in mud for 9 hrs then with no towel outside when its snowing. I really sugest that you DO NOT buy or read this book

This book was really engaging and it made me think. It is really interesting to imagine what life would be like if we were six inches or sixty feet tall.
