Author(s): Jonathan Swift
Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift is a witty and insightful satirical novel recounts the history of Lemuel Guliver, "First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of several Ships." In his travels Gulliver visits the Land of Lilliput, where he towers over the local inhabitants, the land of Brobdingnag where he is much smaller than the citizens, the floating island of Laputa, infested with fanatical scientists who in their obsession with reason behave with no sense at all and finally to the land of the brutish Yahoos who look to all intents and purposes like humans and are derided by the intelligent horse people.
This is a classic book that should be read by everyone; not just kids. An all around great bit of story telling. One you will always be able read and reread, every time travelling to new lands and adventures.
