Gulliver's Travels - retold for younger listeners (Naxos Junior Classics) - 'Jonathan Swift',  'Roy McMillan'

I don't regret waiting so long to read this book. The older I am, the more I bring to the table in terms of accumulated knowledge and understanding. GT is not the action novel of one's youth (the expurgated version for young readers such as the version this cover comes from) but rather a thoughtful criticism/satire of early 18th century politics and society.
