We had a 7th Grade English teacher who had taught in borstals and approved schools and he loved Sherman and Kipling and Forster. He said they calmed the inmates down and it seemed to work for us as well. Maybe it was because he was 6 foot 6 inches tall and was the most ferocious caner in the school. However, I can still taste " the lime paste" mentioned in the book.
One of my favorite books about India. A young boy hears stories of hunting from his mali (gardener)and the story of his adventure/misadventure with the mali. Young boy that grows up very fast in unfortunate incident. He is either anglo-indian in the old or new meaning of the term. I can't tell which.
I both liked and disliked this book!I liked it because it talks about a boy who loves the gardener hs mother hired and cares for him soo much.I diisliked the story because it has a lot of blood in it and it has a sad ending!I don't like sad endings!!!:(
