Rudyard Kipling's tale of two scruffy adventurers, Carnehan and Dravot, determined to leave India and rule the pagan tribes of another land as kings. But their quest does not end as they had plotted, and Carnehan returns to the narrator's newspaper office two years later in rags, to recount their victories and sudden fall -- Dravot's quite literally -- from their positions of glory.

    " Classic book, quick read, funny how familiar the place names due to the current war in Afghanistan. Always been a fan of the movie, now I finally read the book and enjoyed it. "

    " "Liked it"

    If I hadn't seen the movie, I don't know if I would have liked it as much. I'm not certain that I could have followed it as well without having seen the movie. "

    " Two cheeky Victorian cockneys - Peachy Carnahan and Dan Dravot - head off into the mountains of Afghanistan in the late nineteenth century to carve out a kingdom for themselves. Had me gripped. Unforgettable adventure story - with a great twist. "
