Joseph Rudyard Kipling (/ˈrʌdjərd/ RUD-yərd; 30 December 1865 – 18 January 1936) was an English journalist, short-story writer, poet, and novelist. He was born in India, which inspired much of his work. Kipling's works of fiction include The Jungle Book (1894), Kim (1901), and many short stories, including "The Man Who Would Be King" (1888). His poems include "Mandalay" (1890), "Gunga Din" (1890), "The Gods of the Copybook Headings" (1919), "The White Man's Burden" (1899), and "If-" (1910).

Rudyard Kipling, English short-story writer, poet, and novelist chiefly remembered for his celebration of British imperialism, his tales and poems of British soldiers in India, and his tales for children. He received the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1907. Learn more about Kipling’s life and work. While working in India, Rudyard Kipling published a collection of verse and several volumes of short stories, including The Phantom Rickshaw, all of which were well received by the public. He moved to England in 1889 and enjoyed a meteoric rise to literary fame, especially after the appearance of Barrack-Room Ballads (1892).

Rudyard Kipling - Kim has been added to your Cart. Kipling himself knew about abandonment as he suffered it as a young man, and undoubtedly could not have written the same book without his own personal experiences being in his mind

Rudyard Kipling - Kim has been added to your Cart. Kipling himself knew about abandonment as he suffered it as a young man, and undoubtedly could not have written the same book without his own personal experiences being in his mind. It is also a story about the use of espionage, as the British are at odds with the Russian Empire of the late 19th Century, their competition over Central Asia. On that score, I once read that Charles McCarry, who spent years as a deep cover agent before becoming the author of the wonderful Paul Christopher spy novels,was told upon entering the CIA, to read Kim, which he did to his benefit.

The best work of Rudyard Kipling. In it, he explored many of his childhood memories of India, and it is generally considered to be his most successful full-length novel.

Review for Kindle edition of Kim: B003K1590M:

No cover. No Italics. Curly quotes. Dashes are Dashes for the most part, but oddly spaced - often a space only on one side of the dash. Blue text! Paragraphs are wrapped nicely, and first line indented. First paragraph in a chapter is also indented, but does at least start with some emphasis of the first word. But some paragraphs are not indented just on the first line, but on all lines of the paragraph - very peculiar. And some of the paragraph breaks are incorrect.
No Table of contents in Menu, but hyperlinked TOC is in the text at the start of the book - with page numbers!

This version isn't based on the same text as so many of the other versions of Kim on Amazon, but seems to be a new electronic version of a text somewhere between the 1901 text and the 1937 text. It has only a few typos and has British spelling.

An interesting version - but possibly only to me, with my close interest in the text.

As a reading edition it's not good. The relatively good text is let down by poor formatting throughout, and all the italics in the text are lost.

And $4.95!

There are better, cheaper editions available.

Kipling in writing KIM drew on the whole of his long years in British Colonial India to teach us something of Buddhist mysticism and the inscrutable ways of Eastern religions while cleverly setting the stage for this first-class espionage thriller. Kim is an abandoned half-Irish kid - the son of a dead British soldier - whose heart-rending efforts to scrounge for food and to survive on the harsh streets of India take us on a hair-raising odyssey across many areas of the Indian sub-continent and deep into the heart of the geopolitical intrigues challenging British dominance of its huge colony by Russian agents and infiltrators.

As Kim grows up and comes to terms with both his British and Indian roots, he also unwittingly becomes one of the top intelligence agents operating under deep cover inside the dangerous depths of India. The way Kipling accomplishes this coup of the pen easily rivals what John LeCarre achieved in his masterpiece work, THE PERFECT SPY. Kim's tradecraft could offer much to our current generation of CIA officer sent to the field without proper training who all too quickly find themselves in Iranian jails.

Rudyard Kipling writes every bit as lyrically as LeCarre with a similar or greater gift for the dramatic senses. While his many wonderful works such as THE JUNGLE BOOK have suffered as political fashions have changed and colonialism has become a very dirty word, the fact remains that his works still offer much to entertain us, to teach us, to thrill us, and to enchant us.
For those who can appreciate a premier storyteller without entangling themselves in political correctness, Kipling remains one of the best writers in modern English.

If you're open to a great espionage yarn that can stand on its own two feet without resort to the technological gimmickry of a Clancy and the other formulaic practitioners of what purport to be spy thrillers, KIM provides a great place to broaden your horizons and to quicken your pulse.

Who could not like this story, its a classic. I read the book as a kid, and as an adult, it was like a new read; I adored it. This is the kind of story that is for the ages, forever. It's historic, its endearing, its got adventure and wit, humor, faith, love. Its inspiring, poignant to the max.

Review for Ray Ontko & Co. ("Trillium") edition of Kim: B002GU6HP4

Partial Italics. Curly quotes. Dashes are Dashes. Indents on Paragraphs, but not on first in chapter, which gets a large capital. Chapter titles bold, and chapter verses laid out nicely. A lovely table of contents, with quotes.
Really a very pretty version.

But oh - the text. The usual typos - Busts for buts. Pincers for pencase. And the verses in the text aren't quite broken right.

The best version conversion of the widely available public domain texts that I've seen. Excellent work on the quotes, but not enough on the italics (only some of the text that should be in italics is in italics) and the textual errors are similar to other editions.

A good effort, but there are better editions about. If you're looking for a Kindle edition of Kim, don't just search for "Kim". That only finds a few of the many editions. Search for "Kim Kipling" (without the quotes) to find the 30 or so editions available. And also look for my review "Kindle Edition Choice is critical" for a review of all the available editions as of May 2010.

No italics. No accents. Straight quotes. Dashes are hyphens. Both line space and first line indent on paragraphs. Usual error of pincers for pencase and other typos from common versions of the public domain text. There are illustrations, but they don't seem to relate to the text very well.
