5.0 out of 5 stars Rudyard Kipling's best children's book May 10, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a magical collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling. It is one of the greatest children's books ever written. It is not poetry in the sense that its lines scan, but its imagery is poetic and its plot has allegorical features. It contains some of the finest literary adventures to come to us from the British colonial period. Set in a jungle in India, it is an hypnotic tale that reflects some Victorian values kindred to those found in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan novels, although in The Jungle Book all such values had to have been carefully screened as they passed through the wise and circumspect Kipling filter. Somehow they do not seem entirely strange and alien today, although they may bear traces of the British writer's experience of regimental life in India and his many travels elsewhere. The author, a friend both of Theodore Roosevelt and American history and lore, was conscious of the drift by rival European powers and the surges of continental militarism. Somehow, perhaps, he allows his values to be colored by this awareness, yet he does not miss a single beat in relating the jungle adventure. The book is unique; no writer other than Kipling could have created it. It tells the story of Mowgli, a boy raised by wolves and the other beasts of the jungle. The behavior of the wolves that accept the boy in their family is as convincing as is the story of the great apes that accept Tarzan in theirs. Kipling is revealing more than that of which he speaks. Mowgli's adventure is a wondrous story, also about the life of every youngster with imagination and the force that is the will to be within him. The author is talking to readers about how to cope with tough problems, and he acknowledges even the hidden dangers that appear from time to time while growing up. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! April 22, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Everyone should read this book, especially if they have seen the Disney version on film. The actual story is of course, much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Classic for All Times March 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read the the Disney editions many times for my children since they were babies; now my eldest has reached an age which he can understand and hold a deeper plot. I bought this book with the thought it might be a good idea to start with familiar story. After he reads his Level 1 book, I proceed to read this story to both of my children. Every night they look foward to this story. It has been a great success.

Excellent! I am re-reading a lot of books that were once "required" reading in my High School Literature class. This one was especially fresh and fun to read again.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Read March 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Despite its age, this book has a lot of humor to it. It has its rough spots though, and that's why I wouldn't recommend it very highly.

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been reading this book since I was a child and any chance I get to have my own copy .. I am jumping on it. I love that it has all the stories and not just the one story told the Disney way. Thanks

5.0 out of 5 stars A long lost memory rekindled on a whim April 19, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I remember this book from my youth, what vivid imagery! Rudyard is a master of perspective and imagination. Reading this to my daughter and quizzing her on the characters is the way we wind down for the evening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good if you read from beginning to end
This, unlike the Complete Kipling, is easy to use...partly because People ( I) would read it sequentially, and therefore not find navigation an issue.

The story is different from the movie by Disney. Much better than the movie. The characters in the first story I'm more familiar with.

1.0 out of 5 stars Ok
This book wasn't as great as I thought I t would be.
I chose this rating because it wasn't interesting.
I recommend only if you like "calm" books.
