Title: Gulliver’s Travels
Author: Jonathan Swift
Illustrator: Benjamin Mote
I got this wonderful and interesting book, while I was reading books online. The book cover was really nice and I was curious to read the book.
Gulliver was an English man, a surgeon as well as a voyager, who travels around various remote villages and islands of the world. My view about Gulliver is he is a brave and good person. He is an adventurous person and I feel sad because whenever he travels around he is facing difficulties. But he managed to escape from the difficult situations. The story has four parts.
In the first part of the story he travels towards Australia. Due to a shipwreck, he unfortunately entered an island called Lilliput where people are like dwarfs and less than 6 inches. They tied up Gulliver and tortured him. However he managed to convince them. The story has similar four parts of where Gulliver’s travels take him, how he gets into trouble and out of them.
My favourite character is Gulliver because he is a brave and strong man. He faced many problems in his journey.
People like Lilliputians, people of Brobdingnag are imaginary characters and they do not exist in the real world. It is an adventure story. This genre of stories contains many dangers and challenges. The hero would come across the situations and overcome them successfully.
It is an imaginary novel by Swift and one of best novels in the world. Till now, lakhs of copies of this novel are sold.
Travel adventure stories are a kind of story which involves various travels by the hero of the story. It is usually interesting because the hero overcomes many adventures during his travels.
We should overcome our challenges like Gulliver with motivation and self confidence is my understanding from this story.
This book is suitable for students of age 8+
