About this Recording

KIPLING, R.: Kim (Unabridged)

One of the first great works of the 20th century, Kim tells the story of Kimball O’Hara, an orphan on the streets of Lahore. Wild, inventive and delighted with the secrecy of the messages he carries across the night-time rooftops, he befriends an elderly Tibetan lama and joins him on a quest for a sacred river.

But in the India of the 1880s there are other matters to deal with, and Kim finds himself enrolled as a member of the British secret service in the ‘Great Game’—the power struggle between the British and Russian Empires.

An adventure story packed with incident, Kim is also about identity and belonging, lost fathers and new opportunities, and is a breathtaking portrait of India in all its vivid contrasts.
