I made a point of rereading the original Gulliver’s Travels before reading Swift Wing and the author’s loving tribute and modern tweaks shone through. You can definitely enjoy “On Swift Wings” without the need to visit the original, but I found the experience much richer for my effort as I could more easily recognize the efforts that Wiens made in crafting this novel.
I very much enjoyed the journey and worlds of the protagonist Cygnus and the evolution that Wiens gave to Swift’s original Travels. Bon Voyage as you take your own journey into these fantastic and treacherous allegorical hidden countries.
