Important piece of history

Gulliver’s Travels is still among the most enduring stories ever written, and is still being read nearly 300 years after it was originally published.

Some of that satire’s relevance has diminished over time, but the story itself is still a timeless classic. Imagery and words from it have saturated into everyday life over the centuries. I highly recommend giving this book a read, to become familiar with a classic, and to enjoy a compelling adventure.
