Gulliver's Travels Summary. G ulliver's Travels is a satirical novel narrated by Lemuel Gulliver, who travels the world and encounters a series of strange and fantastical cultures.. On his first Reader be warned -- despite being adapted into various kids' books and movies over time, "Gulliver's Travels" is NOT a children's book. The concept may sound like a children's fairy tale, but Jonathan Swift intended this book to be a parody of the travel books of his time, as well as a scathing satire of British culture and government of the day.
