    Let s face it Jonathan Swift was a snarky, snarky bitch Gulliver s Travels is like a giant pimp slap across the human race face and I am so glad I finally read this in a non school, non structured environment because I had a whole lot fun with it this time around Swift

    Okay, I didn t finish this sucker It was poor I was kind of shocked I was thinking why does no one point out that this is a giant rip off of Honey I Shrunk the Kids and Honey I Blew Up the Kid It s painfully obvious I don t see why this Danial Defoe mope has not had his ass s

    It s one of the stranger occurrences that Gulliver s Travels is recognized often than not as a fantastical adventure for the delight of children, when in actuality it is one of the bleakest condemnations of human beings to ever corrode a page The Reverend Swift is a master of misanthropic satire, and even wit
