Kim by Rudyard Kipling

Kim is Rudyard Kipling's finest work. Now controversial, this novel is a memorably vivid evocation of the life and landscapes of India in the late nineteenth century. 

Kim himself isa resourceful lad who befriends a lama, an ageing priest; and both embark on a combined quest. Whereas Kim has an insatiable interest in the varied activities around him, the lama seeks redemption from the "Wheel of Life". Kim becomes involved in the "Great Game", undertaking espionage for the British rulers.

This engrossing and moving novel, with its diversity of memorable characters, offers many insights into political, religious and social tensions.

About the Author

Joseph Rudyard Kipling (1865 - 1936) was an English poet, short-story writer and novelist. His stories of the British in India reached their height of popularity in the 1890s, but opinion turned against him as the public perception of the days of the Empire changed. With the passing of years, he can now be viewed from a historical perspective as a recorder of the world as it was then. His books for children, including The Jungle Book and The Second Jungle have an enduring appeal.
