Audible Editor Reviews

Stage, screen and radio actor Madhav Sharma gives Rudyard Kipling's lively, adventurous tales of Mowgli, child of the Indian jungle, a mesmerizing narration. There are numerous audio productions of Kipling's stories, but no reader does a better job giving voice to Mowgli's friends and foes (Baloo, the bear; Bagheera, the black panther; Kaa, the rock python; and Shere Khan, the tiger) and re-creating the atmosphere of the Indian jungle setting through thoughtful phrasing and dramatic pacing. The touch of an Indian accent in Sharma's voice is a plus.
