Historically, GT provided amusement for its readers, particularly those who enjoyed the satirical elements that never ceased to poke fun at the political system of its day. It's a fun book; it's entertaining; it's full of imagination, and it's a fantastic read even if you're not looking to dissect its inner meanings. Gulliver is just plain old fun!

It continues to be popular because it holds a certain fascination for anyone willing to open its pages.
