Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift

Gulliver's Travels is one of those books that I can't believe I've never read. I've never even seen the film. Heck, before I read it, the only thing I knew about it was that tiny people tie a huge man to the floor. There is, however, more to this book than that.

The book tells the story of, well, Gulliver's travels; four of them to be exact. Each of these travels is as wildly imaginative as the last, and the parts of the world that Gulliver sees are vividly described and extremely exotic, and we as the readers really feel like we're on the journeys with Gulliver, or at least I did.

I really enjoyed this book, so much so that I read it in one sitting. I love it when I just can't put a book down, and this was one of those books. I highly recommend reading it if, like me, you've shockingly not read it.
