Kipling's classic story of a street boy in India, the orphaned son of an Irish soldier. Recognizing his genius and talents English officers train him for "The Great Game," spying for the Empire. Full of breath-taking adventure. Kipling knew his subject and this is a deep study into differences between East and West. It is also a study into spying and if you've read any spy stories whether from history, Caesar to George Washington to today, or novel you'll recognize the basic truths in this book.

A classic first published in 1901. The story is engrossing. The forward to this edition is written by a modern person who can't think beyond today and will not help you in the reading of this story. Kim the boy of the title has some fantastic adventures that are fun to read and can leave you thinking.

Rudyard Kipling brings this tale of India very well. I was a bit disappointed in the ending, but that is just me.

Kim, one of Kipling's masterpieces, is the story of Kimball O'Hara, the orphaned son of an officer in the Irish Regiment who spends his childhood as a vagabond in Lahore. The book is a carefully organized, powerful evocation of place and of a young man's quest for identity.
