Do You Know Who Lemuel Gulliver Was?

Well, you should. I recently read his autobiography about his sea travels. He was born in 1661. He was a ship’s doctor who loved to travel. He went out to sea, leaving his wife behind. His ship crashed and he landed on an seemingly deserted island. When he woke up he saw bunches of little people on him! Oh, did I forget to mention that Lemuel is the main character of a novel titled Gulliver’s Travels, written by Jonathan Swift?

Gulliver’s Travels, written by Jonathan Swift in 1726, focuses on the travels of adventurous Lemuel Gulliver, who leaves his wife and kids for a life as a ship’s doctor at sea. He ends up being tied with ropes as thick as threads with many armed miniature people, about 5 inches tall, on his body. They soon give him many little barrels of food and wine, which makes him sleepy. Who and what are the little people? Are they friendly? What will happen to Gulliver? Read this exciting novel to find out.

I rate it a 4 out of 5 stars, because it can be a little hard to understand sometimes. I think any mature readers who enjoy fictional adventure stories would love this book. It has so much in it, it is a good book to read over and over again and you will never get bored with it.
