More About the Author

Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936) was born in Bombay in December 1865. He returned to India from England shortly before his seventeenth birthday, to work as a journalist first on the Civil and Military Gazette in Lahore, then on the Pioneer at Allahabad. The poems and stories he wrote over the next seven years laid the foundation of his literary reputation, and soon after his return to London in 1889 he found himself world-famous. Throughout his life his works enjoyed great acclaim and popularity, but he came to seem increasingly controversial because of his political opinions, and it has been difficult to reach literary judgements unclouded by partisan feeling.

1.0 out of 5 stars Opportunity Missed 17 July 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Regardless of the literary merits of Kipling's poetry and prose (and in both genres, he commands respect), this Kindle version of the Collected Works lacks even the most basic active Table of Contents. Consequently, navigating the huge file is a discouragingly laborious process, and rarely worth the effort. It affords the occasional moment of delightful serendipity when one lands in the wrong work and finds it worth the detour, but this does not offset the hours it takes to reach the place one is seeking, and cross referencing is well-nigh impossible. At least the poems are set out more or lesss as poems, unlike in the other Collected Works on offer, where they appear asprose, each line wrapped round to meet the next, and the typeface is also superior here. At least it looks like print whereas, in the other collected, it recalls a poor typewriter that needs cleaning. So there is a real opportunity here for someone to produce a proper, Kindle friendly edition along the lines of the series of Collected Works produced by Delphi which offers the basic tools for navigating an extensive body of work, and then some.

2.0 out of 5 stars Contents 25 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I agree with the reviewer who says this is near-unuseable. There IS in fact a Contents page (go to 'Cover' and then page forward) but, unless I'm missing something, you cannot then select a title. You simply have to plough through by trial and error until you reach the required work. Most disappointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what it says on the tin! 28 Nov 2013
By Pony
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After spending so much time with the transcription why on earth did they waste it all by NOT breaking it up into proper sections. Also IT IS NOT a one volume edition of the works of RK, that by definition would be ALL his works in ONE volume. This is just the first few books. Please take it down and do it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Works of Rudyard Kipling 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw and bought this after I had bought Jungle Book but that didn't matter. Kipling was a man of his time with a good understanding of people and of the stories and events that are part of England and its history.

5.0 out of 5 stars essential reading for young people. 20 Dec 2013
By brosav
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
the jungle boot has been part of my life since before I could read. The Soldier Stories should be required reading for every toung person and especially those wiring to be commissioned. It is humbling to see that our troops in Afghanistan face the same problems as Ortheris and his Comrades, (not a word or a concept understood by many today.) The story of the Gunner thrown from his lead Pony demanding to be killed by his comrades, by being run over by the limber because he knew the guns were urgently needed was most moving for me an 80 year old Ex Gunner Major.

of course excellent! All the best stories from my childhood are here and more besides. A very nice book to have to remind the reader of other, perhaps better days!
