Story 2: Gulliver's Travels - Jonathan Swift – Over 11 hours
Storms shipwreck and strand an unfortunate surgeon on a series of four fantastical lands; among them he finds an island where six-inch-high natives maliciously plot Gulliver's death and where majestic horses rule over enslaved men. An enchanting fantasy for all, Gulliver’s Travels not only entertains, but enlightens: the careful reader will recognize this classic as a witty parody of political life in 18th-century England.
Story 3: The Life and Adventures of Robinson Crusoe - Daniel Defoe – 24 hours
An adventurous Englishman goes to sea to seek his fortune. In a cruel twist of fate, he finds himself shipwrecked on a deserted island. Aided by patience and imagination, Robinson Crusoe gradually transforms the island into a tropical paradise where he lives for 28 years. This unabridged version combines the original Crusoe story from The Adventures of Robinson Crusoe with Defoe’s lesser-known sequel The Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe. Centuries later, Daniel Defoe’s masterpiece continues to inspire other modern versions such as Robinson Crusoe 2244.
