The action takes place in British India in the 1880s and 1890s against the backdrop of 'The Great Game', the political conflict between Russia and Britain which was played out in central Asia. In the character of Kimball O'Hara - an Irish orphan who 'burned black as any native' - Kipling juxtaposes East and West, embodied by a boy who can blend seamlessly into both worlds.

At once both a gripping adventure story and a spiritual journey, Kim must navigate the swarming roads of India - that 'broad smiling river of life' - as a disciple to the Buddhist Lama Teshoo. Yet, all the while, he is being drawn into the secret life of a spy. As he comes of age, how long can Kim continue to manipulate his own fate?

    " It's a beautiful story combined with both action and a magical description of India, from it's landscapes, to the mixing of cultures and religions.

    Amazing book "

    " What a wonderful story. Action in an exotic locale. Lots of things to think about. Most excellent for my first full Kindle read. "

    " I never finished. It got too tedious. I feel guilty about this, but it was too heavy-going, and there are so many more books to read.

    " The description of the Grand Trunk Road is wonderful, just perfect! Otherwise too imperialistic. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lexi | 3/2/2011

    " So far this is a lyrical and interesting book. Of course, you have to accept Kipling's somewhat stereotypical and racist renditions of India and British colonial cultures, but the tale is adventurous and sweet.

    It finished as beautifully as it began. I officially love Kipling! :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Charlie | 2/12/2011

    " It's a good book that reads like a late 19th century precursor to a spy novel. It gets a little bit slow at times as Kipling's descriptions sometime read more like inventories running pages long. "

    " The first cross-over novel, way before Harry Potter's attempts. A joy! "
