I have a few questions on sentences I wrote last week. Could you please check them?

1) In the summary of Gulliver's travels I used the present but a few sentences are in the past.
2) When Gulliver comes back home in England, his wife and his other family members welcome him with surprise and joy, because they thought he was dead. 3) In contrast, he is filled with hate, disgust and contempt.
4) Actually, he realizes that he prefers the company of the wise horses, which he still considers his best friends, to that of men.
5) During the first year he spends with his family, he couldn't endure their (its?) presence because of their smell and the fact they had to eat in the same room.
During the first year he spends with his family and friends, he can't endure their presence because of their smell amd the fact they have to eat in the same room.
(Which one is best?)
