I had only read Jungle Book, previously, so I was surprised and pleased to find such a deep and complex novel. The breadth and depth of the subjects covered was fascinating, everything from Hinduism, a variety of Buddhist sects, to spy craft of the great powers in India prior to WWI, ALL illustrated by the characters in action. I'll have to get a biography of Kipling, now. He must have had a fascinating life!
An enjoyable Read. A glossary of Indian words would have been of interest. Kim is a bright lad & wise beyond his years. He masters most calamities with aplomb. Somewhat like Lee Child's Jack Reacher winning every situation. Brian Pattrick
Kipling, "engineer and poet of empire" writes more elegantly than is commonly credited. This is a masterful telling of a small story within the Great Game is a marvelous complement to Peter Hopkirk's more sweeping accounts.
