uuuggh just ugh. I’ve never read this…maybe I have read the wrong “version” my images of Lilliput wasn’t emphasised by this version.

There were parts of this book that were very interesting but the enjoyment for me was spoilt by the flowery ramblings of Swift. The book became a tedious read and I was very close to giving up on several occasions. I accept that this book was written nearly 300 years ago and the style is naturally dated but generally I found the book slow and bland. Never mind there are lots more classics to read and I am sure that I will read…
