Set in the days of the British Raj, Kipling's finest novel is the exciting and touching tale of an Irish orphan-boy who has lived free in the streets of Lahore before setting out, with a Tibetan Lama, on a spiritual quest. Kim later enrolls in the Indian Service and simultaneously embarks on an espionage mission of supreme importance. A thrilling climax in the Himalayas occurs when the two quests become entangled. Kim's search for identity is staged within one of the most magnificent and affectionate portrayals of Indian culture in literature. Download and start listening now!

    " Interesting but a slow read (maybe I just had too much going on in life at the time and couldn't give it the attention it needs!). I loved the main character, Kim. He was so naturally himself - born white but much more instinctively a native Indian. His commitment to the Tibetan lama is so strong despite their very different ideals (one to get gain/entertainment and the other to obtain enlightenment), which slowly converge in the religious at the end. I loved the end, but got a little distracted by all the details and characters in the middle. "

    " One of the best adventure stories -- easy to see why he won the Nobel Prize for Literature. Along with the exciting plot is a travelogue of India about 1895. The setting reminds me of the early parts of Autobiography of a Yogi (nonfiction.) The chapter where Kim helps a comrade disguise himself and escape from the train is a classic. "
