I had forgotten how AMAZING Kim was. I always liked it, but I probably read it a bit too young (8-9).
Wow, what an amazing EPIC romp through India. I loved the Jungle books from first introduction, and it was so much fun reading them to Michael not too long ago.
I had forgotten how funny Kipling could be. At times, his stories are so dense with late Victorian British politics and culture, that it takes a bit of slogging and some research to get through, but his voice is so strong. Worth the slog!

First of all, it changed my perception that jungle book is a story with funny & childish animal characters who play with mowgli. I found it bit more dark than I imagined. Its about survival and laws and internal conflicts and many more life-lessons. And stories of mowgli (which is part of my childhood as a famous cartoon series) is only a part of it. There are other stories too which i loved no less. I hope upcoming disney movie will do justice with the book in spite of additions for the ...more

Despite the fact he was an unapologetic jingoist, Kipling was a very good writer who lived in very interesting times and places. His poetry is not as good as his prose. His short stories were grand and his children's stories are the most fun you can have reading to a small person. I read his stuff all on-line for free. Highly recommended.

I didn't really finish the ENTIRE works, but read Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, and the short stories, as well as most of the poems. I'll get back to some more later. :)
