Gullivers Travels Retold for Younger Listeners

Written by Jonathan Swift

Gullivers Travels Retold for Younger Listeners Synopsis

Lemuel Gulliver sets out on a series of travels, but each time he finds himself shipwrecked in new and unfamiliar lands. And how unfamiliar! In Lilliput, everyone is tiny, and it takes thousands of them to capture him; in Brobdingnag, they're huge and treat him as a sort of living toy; in Laputa, they live on a floating island inventing impossibly mad projects; and the Houyhnhnms are horses! But through all his adventures, Gulliver learns to see humans in a different way, too. One of the world's great works of fiction, Gulliver's Travels keeps all its humour and satire in this new retelling, which uses Swift's words in the main, simplifying and clarifying them where necessary.

Gullivers Travels Retold for Younger Listeners Press Reviews

Benjamin Soames presents McMillan's smooth adaptation of Swift's classic adventure...Well-chosen vocabulary suitable to Swift's era adds to its authenticity. Clear sentence structure, abbreviated episodes, and a condensed version of Swift's often lengthy social commentary help the abridgment's accessibility to contemporary listeners. -- C.A.
