I went into the reading of this book thinking it was a children’s fantasy/adventure book, based upon it having sat in my classic books (for children!) collection since I was a child. I’m glad I waited so long to read it as it’s not at all what I thought it would be and I think I would have found it pretty boring at the time. Reading as an adult, however, I did mostly enjoy it for its wit and satire of the 1700’s and only found a few areas a bit droll.

I adore this book and its not always subtle satires on society and its institutions in the time of Queen Anne. Whilst is is quite fantastical to think that poor Gulliver manages to get stranded four times in his seafaring life - the outcomes of each marooning provide him with a wonderful device to comment on the perceived shortcomings of his own society.
