Gulliver's Travels (Signet Classics) - Jonathan Swift It had a cool plot, and it had its funny moments. What turned me off a little was just the way the story was told. I know it was supposed to be all satirical and making fun of travel logs and whatnot, but all the constant, unnecessary detail made it seem kind of dull and annoying. Didn't hate it, but I wasn't in love with it either.
