Gulliver's TravelsStreaming Audiobook - 2009
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 savage 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.
