Kim, by Rudyard Kipling
2012 Book 50: Kim, by Rudyard Kipling (3/20/2012)
Reason for Reading: 12 in 12 group read
My Review 4/5 stars
Kim is an orphaned boy living on the streets of Lahore. When he meets a Buddhist monk who is on a quest to find a healing river, Kim joins the lama as his student and friend. Together they travel, learn lessons, and have adventures. I enjoyed watching Kim grow up in this story, and enjoyed the colorful descriptions of the people Kim and the lama met. However, I’m still trying to figure out what the deeper meaning of this story is. Perhaps time will help.
