From the back of the book: Jonathan Swift`s classical fable was first published following the "South Sea Bubble" and other financial and commercial scandals which sadly strike a chord in our own times. It introduced many fictional lands and peoples which have since entered the English language, including the minute inhabitants of Lilliput, the giants of Brobdingnag, and the Yahoos in the land of the Houyhnhnms. Swift`s attack on the futility of science which is not applied to human betterment in its widest sense, is relevant to today`s post-industrial culture.

I bought this book in a second-hand-shop to be released.

I had some trouble finishing this. I have read several other books in between, but are now ready to read something else. Not bad really, but I had some trouble concentrating on the book. And I had to finish it since it is a "1001 book you must read before you die" book.
