- Author Rudyard Kipling
This was part of the Big Read list I’m working through, otherwise I don’t think I would have picked it up. Kipling’s works have always felt very inaccessible to me, and although I did manage to finish this one, it didn’t really change my opinion.
I quite enjoyed the language, it really made you feel like you were right there. But, having said that, I’m not sure I followed the story at all well. Some of the twists and turns, and ways that Kim managed to escape situations were fun, but when I got to the end, I’m not sure I could have repeated exactly what the point of the book was or what happened.
I’m glad I read it, and it was an interesting one to experience, but it left me more confused than when I started.
