I'm not sure how to rate it because it's satirical and I find it too dense. I read it on a whim aaaaaaand I fell asleep.
  DzejnCrvena | Apr 2, 2021 |
I don't recall ever having read this as a child, but a vague recollection of seeing the movie. I found the first half of the book quite entertaining and adventurous. But as his travels continued, it became so "descriptive" that I found it tedious. ( )

I always had a sort of disgust for Gulliver's travels, but this version somehow didn't turn my stomach - may even have changed my mind about some of the value of the story. Still an uncomfortable read in points, but the art helped lots. ( )

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
My father had a small estate in Nottinghamshire; I was the third of five sons.
Quotations
And he gave it for his opinion, "that whoever could make two ears of corn, or two blades of grass, to grow upon a spot of ground where only one grew before, would deserve better of mankind, and do more essential service to his country, than the whole race of politicians put together.”
I said there was a society of men among us, bred up from their youth in the art of proving by words multiplied for the purpose, that white is black, and black is white, according as they are paid. […] It is a maxim among these lawyers, that whatever hath been done before may legally be done again: and therefore they take special care to record all the decisions formerly made against common justice and the general reason of mankind. These, under the name of precedents, they produce as authorities, to justify the most iniquitous opinions; and the judges never fail of decreeing accordingly.
