The action takes place in British India in the 1880s and 1890s against the backdrop of ‘The Great Game’, the political conflict between Russia and Britain which was played out in central Asia. In the character of Kimball O’Hara – an Irish orphan who ‘burned black as any native’ - Kipling juxtaposes East and West, embodied by a boy who can blend seamlessly into both worlds. At once both a gripping adventure story and a spiritual journey, Kim must navigate the swarming roads of India - that ‘broad smiling river of life’ - as a disciple to the Buddhist Lama Teshoo. Yet, all the while, he is being drawn into the secret life of a spy. As he comes of age, how long can Kim continue to manipulate his own fate?

I very much enjoyed the reading of the book, and I especially enjoyed the accents. I was disappointed thought, because a rather important scene in the book was not included in the reading. I was only able to follow along with the plot because I had previously read the book, but even so, I was a bit confused. I am sad that I spent money on this to find that important bit missing.
This is very good!!!
