booklist

I finally finished reading Gulliver’s Travels by Jonathan Swift, last night. That took me such a very very long time. Not quite as long as it took me to read The Last of the Mohicans, but still, a fairly long time. I definitely liked this book more than i liked The Last of the Mohicans, but i still wasn’t completely sold on it either. While there were many parts of the novel that were extremely dry, a little dull and sometimes too bizarre, there were things about it that i absolutely loved as well. I really love how sarcastic Jonathan Swift is and i loved that the whole book was a satire. Some parts of it were really strange though and that was a little difficult to wrap my head around. I feel like this book is something i would totally love to read for an english course because i know i would love to study it and understand all the intricacies and complexities of the novel that i know i missed. The entire last section of the book is my very favourite part of the entire thing. I really want to reread it sometime, before i die. haha. not anytime soon though. so yeah. Gulliver’s Travels. Succesfully read
