5.0 out of 5 stars A timeless classic 7 Aug. 2013

Kim is always a pleasure to read again and again. Kipling vividly describes the life and times of 19th century northern India, which is part fantasy and part true. Though its vision is wholly imperialistic and paternalistic, Kipling's love for the country and its people comes through.

As a story Kim is great, with so many levels and angles from which to perceive. Kipling's 19th century Victorian phrasing is a challenge for many high school readers, but once they get the hang of it, they learn to really like Kim, the lama, and their cohorts. Teaches a ton about cultures interacting (or failing to do so).............

I re-read this gem after many years. It is as fresh today as when it was written. And what a picture it paints of "that" India.
5.0 out of 5 stars An old story that is a wonderful read today 16 Oct. 2014

A wonderful story of a boy's journey to manhood among a variety of colorful characters and situations in British India. This Kipling story has held up well over the decades since its writing.

Good but a bit difficult reading before I had my new Kindle Paperwhite. Bought to help me read an unannotated edition of Kim
