Author: Rudyard Kipling
Reviewer's Age: Grade 7

The novel Kim by Rudyard Kipling is one of the best books I have ever read. It talks about how most things worth finding take the longest to find by describing the journeys of a white boy in India who was raised by an Indian woman. It has drama, comedy, and a very interesting plot. The drama when Kim gets separated from the Lama (holy man). The comedy when Kim's plans go into play (like when Kim learns the information about the 8000 men being sent to war and confuses people because the orders have not yet been given and nobody else knows this information). The turn of the plot with the Lama paying 300 Rupees for Kim's English schooling and Mahbub Ali taking Kim back to the army. This book was a bit hard to understand at my reading level but was most enjoyable.
