Kipling is little appreciated today, and that's a shame, because he was one of the finest short-story writers the world has ever produced. The closest word I can find to describe his stories is "hypnotic." Such an imagination...many of the stories are understated horror and fantasy: stories of talking trains, of wild rides that end up in hellish worlds, of frighteningly realistic curses by man-beasts. Some are truly puzzling, such as "The Gardener." Some are obviously (and disturbingly) autobiographical ("Baa Baa Black Sheep"). Kipling strikes a note few writers can: his stories can be enjoyed (and enjoyed immensely) by both children and adults. These are the kinds of stories that children love having read to them. They always clamor for more.

The title is a lie: this is not even close to being Kipling's collected stories. It is a selection, and an excellent one. If you want all of Kipling's stories, you'll have to look elsewhere. If you want a good place to find the best of them, this is the book to have.

Kipling, to me, represents the closing chapter of the British Empire. All the great culture and adventure that Victorian England produced was then being slowly drawn back. Kipling's stories are earthy, human, and not easily understood these days.

His short stories are easily read in one sitting and so you can pick through to find something for that moment.
Much would not be considered politically correct, but that's what makes it great.

This is not the edition you will receive sadly. The one that came in the mail this week was by the same publisher however a newer and cheaper edition. You can find that edition here on Amazon for less than it is posted for here. Really disappointed - when you buy Kipling it is something that should be of quality, something you keep your whole life, and pass on to others... really disappointed.

Ihave read one of the most deep tales, the title "the gardener". When i readed it came to my mind two words: fathe, hope, uncanny.
This tale awake in my a feeling, the atraction for the work of kipling,is magic, it surrounds your views with his views, his feelings with your feelings. All that happens is the presence of the author, this book, is not a simple book of tales, is the gate for a new worlds, a thousend of worlds, all with a new gravity and with brave life

Very nicely bound handsome edition with wonderful stories. I cannot wait to dig in. I am 65 and have not read Kipling's stories for 40 years (college). My all time favorite book as a child was Rikki Tikki Tavi and from there I became a Kipling fan.

I got this so that my husband could read stories to my 10-year-old granddaughter -- he loves to read, she loves to be read to. Kipling provides adventure and different cultures, so I figured it would entertain them both. I had not factored in how limited our vocabularies are today. My husband had to stop frequently to explain words; occasionally, he would have to look one up. They both still enjoyed the stories. (I also think it did my granddaughter good to learn that even grown ups have to look up words; there is no stigma to using a dictionary -- or in our case, the internet.)

I would recommend the book to anyone who wants their child to achieve a high score on the verbal SAT, but I think a child would be better off to have it read to him than to read it solo.

The book itself is large and heavy (hardback), but the print is a comfortable size.
