Kipling, Rudyard: Kim, v1, 10 May 2008.

KIM, a novel by Nobel winner Rudyard Kipling.

My version has these features: Normal paragraph, rather than Bold; Chapter links; and smaller text on the epigraphs.

Here's a quote from the web:

"Despite his reputation as a trumpeter of imperialism, Kipling is himself full of wit, irony and rich imagination in this tale of Kim and the Tibetan holy man, who journey "the broad, smiling river of life" that is India's great highway. Together they encounter a series of adventures as colorful and memorable as those of Huck Finn traveling down the Mississippi. But more than an action story, here is a story told in dialogue, one whose key events are exchanges of wit, whose rendering of the vernacular of British India is the thread and essence of its tale."

I'm not happy with the choice of "Other" as a category, but Kim would be misrepresented by "Youth." I've mentally filed this under "Long Fiction" -- my number one choice.

I hope you enjoy it.
