Summary

Summary

Set in the days of the British Raj, Rudyard 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Masterful.” Boston Globe
“[Kipling] chronicled the poorest of Irish orphans…forced to choose between playing the ‘Great Game’ involving the contending imperial powers Britain and Russia and the teachings of a Buddhist lama—as fine a portrait of ethnic and religious crosscurrents and multiculturalism as there is.” Los Angeles Times
“Enchanting music, ideal for an exotic Indian setting, is the perfect accompaniment to this marvelous tale. Narrator Madhav Sharma dazzles—whether he’s using English, Irish, or various melodious Indian accents, along with the style of an old-fashioned storyteller. Kim sounds just like the lively, gutsy, intelligent survivor he is. Sharma is engaging and funny when he quotes Kim, particularly when Kim admits that he quickly learned to avoid white men and missionaries. In addition to telling an excellent story, audio promotes this dynamic country and its people, just as Kipling intended.” AudioFile
