Questo affascinante romanzo di Rudyard Kipling ci mostra un lato dell'India e della cultura buddhista incredibilmente uscito da una penna inglese, in cui tutta la spiritualità orientale, a partire dalla Ruota delle orti e rinascite viene tratteggiata su un o scenario di panorami, di razze e persone comuni, di agenti segreti. Kim, l'allievo del Lama, ci porta con sé, nel suo viaggio iniziatico, in una ridda di avventure . Cornice musicale: Danza macabra, di Saint Saens.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lake | 2/7/2014

    " I am reading this to my daughter. The descriptions of the people an places of India are beautiful. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Denise | 1/6/2014

    " I read this after completing Laurie R. King's "The Game," which is about Sherlock Holmes and Mary Russell as they set out to free/find Kipling's Kim, when he is a grown man. "Kim" is considered a classic and the "original spy novel," and I can understand why now that I've read it. The book gives a view of life in India in the 1880's, probably for the English reading audience. The plot is good, and detailed, but the writing took effort and patience to get through to the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dillon | 1/3/2014

    " I really found this book fascinating because one can see how Kim in some ways juggles his roots. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathyred | 12/20/2013

    " audiobook. Reader sometimes made it unclear as to who was speaking a particular line. He had the accents down, tho. India itself is a major character in this: I could tell that Kipling was fascinated with it. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jodi | 12/4/2013

    " Yea, so I couldn't finish this. I read about half, but it was so very very boring. Life is too short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clinton Carter | 12/1/2013

    " To hell with the people who think we aren't supposed to like Kipling. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mbrooke | 12/1/2013

    " The first book I have ever given up on. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cat Hellisen | 10/31/2013

    " Adored. I loved the way it mocks people in that gentle way that one only mocks the things one truly loves. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kingfan30 | 9/14/2013

    " I found this book hard work, the language took a while to get used to. At the half way mark I was pretty board so started to skim through until I got to three quarters of the way through but got to the stage last night where I just didn't care how it finished so gave up, which is not like me at all. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrew | 8/4/2013

    " An interesting travel/adventure story with a thick mise-en-scene of India. Kept my attention but didn't blow me away. Another one of the Modern Library Association's "100 greatest English novels" that I wonder how it got there. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mahad | 3/26/2013

    " kipling is too deprived ! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 2/14/2013

    " Entertaining but I basically read it for school. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emily Hatch | 1/12/2013

    " 19th c. view of a stunningly complex country. kipling takes you on a tour of India from the south to Tibet, with delightful descriptions, and a touching story that is simple without being simplistic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel (Sfogs) | 11/14/2012

    " Good story not at all what I was expecting! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barry | 3/21/2012

    " Mostly childish claptrap, with some genuine delicacy mixed in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nikki | 2/29/2012

    " Classic Kipling, with India and espionage. You ought to read it if only to understand what other spy story writers refer to as "The Great Game" but also because it's a ripping yarn. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Delta | 9/26/2011

    " First time read and I enjoyed it... I now must read The Game by Laurie King again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mathew | 8/31/2011

    " The original spy novel. All others are based upon this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hector | 5/7/2011

    " 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 "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pachuban | 4/16/2011

    " Fantastic in the way of good stories that may stick with a person, in one way or another, for a very long time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 4/7/2011

    " A great geography lesson and a fantastic story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Mahad | 3/28/2011

    " kipling is too deprived ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 3/25/2011

    " Read it once a year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bcoghill | 3/24/2011

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

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Trina | 3/16/2011

    " 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.
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Saharvetes | 3/5/2011

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Goethicus | 1/28/2011

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