Gulliver's Travels

Jonathan Swift

The original novel about culture shock, from the satirist who gave us "A Modest Proposal." (Yes, Jack Black's hideous movie was based on a book.) Lemuel Gulliver travels around the world, encountering tiny little people and giant people, and a floating city of highly advanced but impractical people, and finally, a land of horse-people. Along the way, he learns that human nature is inherently corrupted and that no society is ever perfect, and that everybody has their own weird beliefs and cultural disputes. Probably no other book can do more to prepare you for futureshock than Gulliver's Travels.
