Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift

Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift is divided into four parts, his “visits” to the tiny people of Lilliput, the giants of Brobdingnag, a floating city and other places, and a place where horses are the ruling class. The first half was much more fun to read than the second half. The insistence that it was all absolutely true was hilarious. Swift was an amazing satirist. I can totally see why his writings were, and still are, popular.
