Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

In Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels Gulliver relates how the people of Lilliput were very tiny, hardly reaching his ankles, and how they were evenly divided into two political parties – the High Heels who strongly argued a soft boiled egg must always be opened on the pointed end – and the Low Heels who argued just as firmly that it should only be opened on the round end – and he told in exciting detail of the intrigues and infighting that ensued from this major political difference. Now, in this book based on a recently discovered old manuscript in Gulliver’s own hand, we’re treated to his eyewitness account of the tiny people’s equally quaint economy.

Charles

Best for those who love satire. Seemed to stay highly technical and travel in circles. No actual plot; more of a recounting of the structure of the Lilliputian society.
