Okay, I know I'm a little old to be reading this, but one of my younger siblings were reading it, so I picked it up and read it this morning...
It was very straight forward, and to the point, but clear and easy to read for early readers.
They really only gave half (or less) of the real story (I kind of found that a bummer) but I guess they wanted to keep it short for little kids. Okay.
So, overall, if you are an early reader, this would be great for your first version of Gulliver's Travels (

My Granddad used to tell stories about this book and his favourite parts of it were liqour related, that's why I took the time to read it and as much as it is a magical experience I must say I could have enjoyed it better if I had not read the novels of my generation, I think we need one of today's brilliant author's to rewrite this novel in the style we are all accustomed. However it's a great book.

Gulliver’s Travels was one of my leas favorite books to read. I only liked about four things in it. All throughout this book I would fall asleep, get to bored to read some more. I felt as though it would go on and on and never end. Gulliver’s Travels is not my kind of book to read. I think the version of the book that I read was horrible unless you like having a hard time reading and not understanding half of the book.
This book might not of been my type, but I liked four things in it. The four

Travel and adventures have always been my favorites. When I was about 8 years old, I got a children's version of Gullivers Travels. It was almost about 25 pages illustrated book. I enjoyed it thoroughly. When I was in 8th std, later, I came to know that the version I read was just an excerpt of the original. The original book was an actual novel. It was with the same curiosity of a person who discovers a new thing, that I read the book. When Gulliver traveled to Lilliputs, I felt Gulliver was th ...more

I did not really enjoy Gulliver’s Travels. It just didn’t capture my attention. It was a good book, but the whole story didn’t interest me. It’s about a man who travels into the ocean, but a storm leaves him stranded on a mysterious island called Lilliput where people are only the size of your finger. They had funny laws such as not being able to break a certain end of an egg and they had a war over it. After he escapes Lilliput, he gets stranded on an island full of giants. I didn’t like it, bu ...more

This book has a lot word choice and story line behide it. This story it self it kind of hard to keep track of unless you really focus. It's a great classic it adventure that teaches many lesson. That author style would be confusing for a younger crowd to under stand meaning of each of the character's jorneys.

There's this guy, Gulliver. He travels.

So. I listened to this one on audio book because it came in a bundle of other books. I was a bit bored out of my head. He was giant. He had a master. He was moved around. I really don't remember much because at one point I was just listening to get through. :/

This book is an excellent choice for students around the 3rd grade to pick up as a "starter" chapter book. The story is great for this age range and actually pretty intriguing. Some of the vocabulary may be a challenge so have a dictionary handy for some of the students that may struggle.

I really thought this book was okay. I liked it a little bit. But the book was very cool how gulliver and the little people interact with each other. It has funny parts in it.

This is a good book. It is about a man who came to an island where he met people who were very small. I learned that you do not have to be big to do what you want to do.

This was probably one of my least favorite books that I read in middle school. Although the storyline itself is kind of creative, there was nothing really that pulled me into it.

I enjoy classics, but I couldn't finish this. I tried and tried, but instead I started reading less. I read the next book with quick ease, so it wasn't me, this book reads like an almanac.

It was cool and there were a bunch a little people who tied him up and set him free when he promised he'd stay there. Then he escaped and went back to his place.

The stories are great but it was written more for the purpose of critiquing English/European society than for entertainment-- so it can be hard to get through at times.
