Kim è un ragazzo che diventa adulto attraverso le occasioni, gli ostacoli, le paure, le gioie, le scelte che la vita procura ed esige; il personaggio del lama e quello di Mahbub-Ali sono ritagliati a tutto tondo con un equilibrio perfetto tra il loro comportamento e la loro vita interiore. «Kim è una storia semplice – scrive Romolo Runcini – pervasa da una morale che accomuna, nella distinzione, Occidente e Oriente, ricca di suggestioni magiche, di splendide descrizioni dei paesaggi indiani e dei costumi, della mentalità dei due grandi popoli che si fronteggiano quotidianamente, quello britannico e quello indù.»

Although somewhat drowned in Orientalist ideals and British colonialism, Kim is an exciting tale of espionage and adventure for kids of all ages 9 to 99. It is an exciting read. I just with that Kipling had been a little less bigoted towards the Empire. Nonetheless, probably the peak of his writing
“There is no sin so great as ignorance. Remember this.” ― Rudyard Kipling, Kim This is one of those novels that I read and instantly regreted not reading earlier when I was a boy. I was able, however, to experience reading this with my two kids (one boy 12; one girl 11). It was perfect. I wandered i Leggi tutto
The best work of Rudyard Kipling. In it, he explored many of his childhood memories of India, and it is generally considered to be his most successful full-length novel.

Kim O’Hara is a 12-year old orphan in Lahore in the 1850’s, child of an Irish soldier and Indian mother. Despite the loss of both parents he thrives well as a street urchin, always finding a way to Leggi tutto

Rudyard Kipling created in Kim a novel in the mold of the classic heroic journey that has a pedigree reaching back to Gilgamesh and the Odyssey.
