Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift

Travels into Several Remote Nations of the World. In Four Parts. By Lemuel Gulliver, First a Surgeon, and then a Captain of Several Ships, better known simply as Gulliver's Travels (1726, amended 1735), is a novel by Irish writer and clergyman Jonathan Swift, that is both a satire on human nature and a parody of the "travellers' tales" literary sub-genre. It is Swift's best known full-length work, and a classic of English literature. The book became popular as soon as it was published. John Gay wrote in a 1726 letter to Swift that "It is universally read, from the cabinet council to the nursery." [1] Since then, it has never been out of print. Cavehill in Belfast is thought to be the inspiration for the novel. Swift imagined that the mountain resembled the shape of a sleeping giant safeguarding the city. [2]

    This is not the complete book, it's missing part three (a third of the book) and cut some parts out. I found out the hard way and read the whole thing and then realized all it was missing went I went online!
  • Avoid this edited and incomplete version

    Warning, this is the "children's version", which is missing several passages deemed unsuitable for minors. And it is only the first two of the four voyages in the complete text. Lots of typos, too.
  • Only includes half the book

  • Insightful and Outrageous

    Interesting plot-line with outrageous adventures that seem to be sending subliminal messages about society.
  • Half of Original.

    This has only two of the four journeys that comprise Gulliver's Travels. The 3rd & 4th voyages are omitted; only Lilliputian and Brobdingnag make the cut. That said, the hyperlinked footnotes for archaic words are useful and a sign that more work went into this than some others put into their i/e-books.
  • Incomplete
