    Classic reverie

    I have only read one short story so far but will come back here, to read more and my highlights and notes will be attached here but stories under title. So far it is get navigational wise, actually the best with that regards and no errors yet. I like the Delphi series and always look for it when I want a collection by an author, some are not perfect but I find on a whole the best, IMO.

    It's probably socially incorrect to feel affection for Kipling anymore, but when I was young and read this book, I was smitten by the exotic language and talking animals. I still love the Road-song of the Bandar-log: Here we go in a flung festoon, Half-way up to the jealous moon! Don't you envy our pranceful bands? Don't you wish you had extra hands? It goes on, and the Bandar-logs, of course, being monkey-types, never stop chattering, swinging, and moving.

Now, when I see a bear leaping over my camp stove to get to me, I feel like Mowgli and smile at him in happy anticipation of a big hug. Ha. I'm not sure I could read "The Jungle Book" or "Kim," again; but I'm positive that these kinds of stories helped to fuel my imagination.

    This was just way too much to read at once. The broken English gets on you. The second half of the book was pretty good. And, I have to admit that Kipling was dang good poet though much of it is hard to read due to the racial undertones.

    I didn't really finish the ENTIRE works, but read Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, and the short stories, as well as most of the poems. I'll get back to some more later. :) I didn't really finish the ENTIRE works, but read Jungle Book, The Second Jungle Book, and the short stories, as well as most of the poems.

    Really enjoyed The Jungle Book and 2nd Jungle Book stories. Better than the movie (the original Disney) which is pretty good in itself. I've always liked the Just So Stories. Puck of Pook's Hill is pretty classic Kipling; Lots of India spiced with imperialism. Really enjoyed The Jungle Book and 2nd Jungle Book stories.

    Well, what an interesting author Rudyard Kipling is. I chose Kipling as my specialist author for this year. Looking at his works over all, Kiplings style is very easy, in parts descriptive, but not to the extent of Turgenev or Dickens, he describes the environment, but, not to its fullest extent. For those who read Kipling’s well known works such as The Man who would be King, Kim, The Jungle Book and The Just So Stories, I can recommend Puck of Pook Hill, Captain Courageous and his horror stories Well, what an interesting author Rudyard Kipling is.

For those who read Kipling’s well known works such as The Man who would be King, Kim, The Jungle Book and The Just So Stories, I can recommend Puck of Pook Hill, Captain Courageous and his horror stories like The Mark of the Beast. They are truly excellent and well worth to read. Through Kiplings life he returned to what he fondly called ‘The Three Musketeers’ revolving around the lives of three officers Learoyd, Mulvarey and Otheris. Like so many of his works based on the British Army in India were actually quite boring, tiring and tedious to read, some quite uncomfortable to get through for the usage of his language. However, he was born into a different time of a white British man born in India at the time of the Raj. Kiplings other stories focus on animals, mythology, the environment, some very entertaining, but after a while they all blend into the same. For many Kipling will always be a contentious author for the use of his language and the time period he was born into. I feel, for those who read beyond his main works will be a contentious and divided author for time to come.

    I must confess. I am a huge fan of Mr. Kipling. As a matter of fact, I'd be a soldier in his army. I say this to indicate that I may possess a slight bias in my analysis. That said.......This work is excellent. I didn't read the whole thing, as I intend for it to be my companion as I go through and because it's enormous, this time around I read the autobiography and some of the poems. He has a lightness and humor with which he conveys his all to serious opinions. How work with words is simply poe I must confess. I am a huge fan of Mr. Kipling.

As a story teller he is engaging, and while the content comes across lightly due to his deft touch, it is no less true and meaningful for it.

    (Audible) The Cat That Walked by Himself is epic Kipling. The story of how wild animals became tame. The beautiful language of how the Woman created a home for the Man and negotiated with the Wild animals to share the warm space is so captivating. Poetic, read this one out loud. Or listen to Boris Karloff read the story https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0w9TU... Highly RECOMMEND! (Audible) The Cat That Walked by Himself is epic Kipling.

    Kipling was very prolific, rich & thought-provoking poet, often expressing profound truths. I hoped for more nature poems, but majority of his works was about war, life & death. Still very powerful read, although, word of a caution, quite depressing at times.

    I had forgotten how AMAZING Kim was. I always liked it, but I probably read it a bit too young (8-9). Wow, what an amazing EPIC romp through India. I loved the Jungle books from first introduction, and it was so much fun reading them to Michael not too long ago. I had forgotten how funny Kipling could be. At times, his stories are so dense with late Victorian British politics and culture, that it takes a bit of slogging and some research to get through, but his voice is so strong. Worth the slog!

    First of all, it changed my perception that jungle book is a story with funny & childish animal characters who play with mowgli. I found it bit more dark than I imagined. Its about survival and laws and internal conflicts and many more life-lessons. And stories of mowgli (which is part of my childhood as a famous cartoon series) is only a part of it. There are other stories too which i loved no less. I hope upcoming disney movie will do justice with the book in spite of additions for the sake of First of all, it changed my perception that jungle book is a story with funny & childish animal characters who play with mowgli.

    Despite the fact he was an unapologetic jingoist, Kipling was a very good writer who lived in very interesting times and places. His poetry is not as good as his prose. His short stories were grand and his children's stories are the most fun you can have reading to a small person. I read his stuff all on-line for free. Highly recommended.

    Realizing his formative upbringing and his experiences with colonization, the themes in his works are understandable. That being said, it becomes a bit like a beating over the head. He's not my favorite ... Realizing his formative upbringing and his experiences with colonization, the themes in his works are understandable.

    What a delight to be read to by Mr. Karloff. I've always wanted to revisit these tales and I'm glad I did it via audio. What a delight to be read to by Mr. Karloff. I've always wanted to revisit these tales and I'm glad I did it via audio.
